02d5edb2-9196-4087-94e8-a85692e568f2

Knoll Residential Park is in a lovely location close to the little Dorset village of Winfrith Newburgh.

Lyme Regis, Lulworth Cove, the spectacular natural archway of Durdle Door and West Bay – it’s all spread out for you to explore and enjoy.

This small residential park is adjacent to heathland, with abundant walking opportunities all around – including along the spectacular cliffs and coves of the iconic Jurassic Coast.

It’s a pet-friendly park for residents over the age of 50.

The village, commonly known simply as Winfrith, provides residents with all the convenience facilities they need – a train station, shop, doctors’ and dentists’ surgeries, plus veterinary practices.

Activities
A bonus for residents here is Winfrith Newburgh’s Village Hall, which hosts a wide variety of activities to bring local people together. It has been an important focus of village life for half a century.
There’s a long list of activities held at this thriving centre. These include art classes, music and drama classes, craft groups, keep fit sessions, classes in creative writing, a gardening club, dancing for the over 50s, dressmaking, quilting, meditation… Something to suit all interests.

There’s also a cricket club based here.

The list of activities also includes walking – the walking group based here organises walks once a month. In addition, ‘Community Lunches’ are held here on a monthly basis – a simple cooked meal and a pudding for £5, and ‘Soup ‘n’ Pud’ lunches, too.

What Knoll Residential Park residents say

Jane Pearson

When Jane was relocating from Cheshire 51 years ago she was looking for a peaceful countryside location close to the coast, with a warm climate and plenty of things to do. Knoll Park ticked all of
those boxes.

Jane has owned two different homes on the park over the years. She says: “The park is ideally located for people who love walking. There are acres of heathland next to the park to enjoy. With the Jurassic Coast including Durdle Door, and Lulworth Cove close by; it’s a splendid location for walking.”

Jane also emphasises the “lovely community spirit on this small park” as a great reason to live here, and appreciates the many community events taking place at Winfrith’s
village hall; she particularly enjoys the art classes. lunches, the walking club, the Ladies’ Friendship Circle and keep fit classes.

She was looking for a quiet residential park that is pet-friendly, and also has some interesting walking and cycle routes. “I love my home” Jane tells us. “It’s such a friendly park, and is close to so many places, whether I am out on foot, bike or car.”
