The East Anglia region
Norfolk is a great destination at any time of year. Miles of unspoilt coastline, internationally important nature reserves and amazing wildlife, hundreds of picturesque villages, historic market towns, fantastic seaside resorts, The Broads - Britain's magical waterland, and Norwich, a fantastic heritage, entertainment and shopping city, are just some of the delights on offer.
Winterton-on-Sea is a small seaside village on a beautiful sandy and unspoiled Norfolk beach.
There is a village store stocking almost everything you will need, a Post Office which is also a newsagents and a grocery shop, a Fish & Chip shop and a 300 year old Public House which is Egon Ronay recommended. By the beach is the award-winning Dunes Café which serves teas & coffees, snacks & meals, beach requisites and, of course, a full range of Ice Cream.
Winterton-on-Sea is a beautiful, sandy Norfolk beach, with a wonderfully lonely feel. Backed by sand dunes and a nature reserve, it's a seemingly endless stretch: the type of beach where you can walk for miles and barely see another soul. Pools of water often form on the beach, creating safe places for children to play.
Our dunes nature reserve is within the "Area of outstanding Natural Beauty" (SSSI and SAC) and is ideal for bird watchers and walkers. And do not miss our colony of 30/40 seals that "live" just north of Winterton-on-Sea.

We spent a very comfortable week here. We've not hired a self-catering cottage for a few decades, so perhaps we noticed minor deficiencies more than previous rave reviewers (things like a badly … More

The cottage was excellent in every respect and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property is very well appointed and has been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard, our 3yr old loved the toys and running around in the garden. The beach, a short walk away, was amazing and has a fairly good cafe as well. We spent a day at Bewilderwood Adventure Park which was a real hit, and then some time visiting the seal colony further up the coast.

"Just right for our needs"
Although this is a small house and there were 5 of us plus a baby, it never felt cramped. The house has been refurbished to a high spec. There is a nice sloping garden and you can get to the beach in about 8 minutes. The kitchen has been thoughtfully planned and equipped for people who love to cook - eg knives that are sharp (unusual). The beds are comfortable with good quality pillows and duvets (even more unusual). We were warm and cosy throughout our stay. It wouldn't be suitable for anyone with a mobility problem (steep stairs, no handrail on steps from garden). Joining instructions very clear and extremely friendly service from Richard. We will definitely go again.
