Juanperi Cottage is in the heart of the old fishing village of Winterton-on-Sea, a few steps away from the shop, post office and pub.
Walk out of the gate and within a very few minutes you are on a stunning, completely unspoilt sandy beach.
Perfectly situated for a bucket and spade holiday, a winter break or a romantic getaway, the house is comfortably furnished and equipped for all seasons.
It boasts free wifi, Sky, Netflix, Now and Apple TV, oil-fired central heating, a separate dining room and a long, enclosed garden that was once filled with drying fishing nets.
A stable door from the living room opens onto the garden where there is a barbecue area and a lawn with space for children and pets to play.
Upstairs the spacious master bedroom, which looks out over the garden, has a genuine Victorian bedstead, while in the second bedroom there is a triple-sleeper bunk bed fitted with memory foam mattresses top and bottom. The recently fitted bathroom is downstairs and conveniently situated for coming in from the beach and washing off the sand.
As well as an HD TV, the lounge also features a DVD player, a landline telephone for emergency or incoming calls and an electric log-effect woodburner. There is a small library of DVDs and books and a collection of games and toys.
At the rear there is parking for one vehicle and on-road parking close by for a second. The cottage is also within sight of the bus stop on the village green from where there is a regular service to Gt Yarmouth.
Electricity/heating, bedlinen and towels are included in the price. Dogs are welcome at no extra charge and the beach is dog friendly year round. The cottage is no smoking.
Winterton is perfect for holidays with the children, but it's a great place for breaks throughout the year. Even at the height of summer the beach is never crowded. There is a cafe and toilets, meaning you can spend the day soaking up the sun or splashing around with the kids before wandering back the short distance to the comforts of home.
The dunes are a nationally recognised site of special scientific interest, home to rare species including the Natterjack toad and the whole area is a bird-watcher, nature lover, artist or photographer's dream.
In summer a colony of little terns - one of the UK's rarest seabirds - takes over part of the beach for the nesting season. Then in the winter grey seals from the thriving colony at nearby Horsey come ashore to have their pups. Both grey and common seals are often seen stopping on Winterton beach for a snooze and they can be spotted in the water throughout the year.
The village is on the doorstep of the Norfolk Broads. Dayboats can be hired from a yard at a neighbouring village and guided boat trips are available at Horsey Mere - a hidden gem of a nature reserve. Winterton is a short drive, but a world away from the amusements of Gt Yarmouth and not far away from family attractions like BeWILDerwood and Thrigby Hall Wildlife Park. It is also about 45 minutes from Pleasurewood Hills theme park. Norwich, described by JB Priestley as a fine city, is about 40 minutes' drive.
As well as the highly rated castle museum and beautiful cathedral, it is very popular for shopping. Norfolk is dotted with fascinating museums chronicling its fishing, agricultural and military history and one of the remnants of the area's herring fishing industry, the 1930s-built steam drifter Lydia Eva, is moored in Yarmouth and where it is open to visitors.
The area is great for walking, fishing and cycling, there is golfing nearby at Caister and sea fishing trips can be booked at Scratby.

About this location
The East Anglia region
Norfolk is Nelson's county and proud of it. The countryside and coastline is beautiful all year round and produces some of the finest food. It is also renowned for its "big skies." Great for family holidays, the county is blessed with plenty of activities and attractions from boating on the Norfolk Broads, steam railways, the historic Norwich Castle and its museum, boat trips to see the seals and all the fun of the fair at Great Yarmouth.
Winterton-on-Sea is right next to a stunning sandy beach. The dunes are a site of special scientific interest and home to rare species including Natterjack toads. A very short distance up the coast you can see seals and their pups on the beach at the right time of year.
The village is a short drive away from the Broads, Great Yarmouth and approximately 45 minutes from Norwich. The village has a post office, shop, pub, beach cafe, restaurant and chip shop. There is also a pub at nearby Somerton and Hemsby, the next village along the coast has more shops including a convenience store and pizza delivery,

"Idylic cottage away from the crowds"
What a fantastic cottage, house was immaculate yet still felt homely. Great location and an ideal place to take the dogs for hours on the beach, we booked to return as soon as we arrived home.

"Cosy warm fishermans cottage in fab location, just a stroll to the sea"
A fabulous former fishermans cottage, very warm and cosy and excellent facilities and fully equipped, Netflix and WIfi connection greatly appreciated by our teenage daughter when she visited! Great to find a dog friendly rental which is clean and does not smell of previous doggie visitors. Our dog loved the welcome treats (we appreciated the human treats too!) and the enclosed long garden. Just a five minute stroll to an amazing beach and beautiful sand dunes, we visited the next village to see the seal colony, great experience. Will definitely be booking again soon.

"Relaxing break in quiet location"
Accommodation was great for four adults and a dog. Village was friendly and easy access to bus etc. Bit of a nuisance we could get no mobile phone network but what a pleasure to sit in a pub without p… More
Thank you for your kind comments. We hope you enjoyed your break. Over all, mobile phone coverage in Winterton is poor. But depending on your provider, it is possible to get a 3G signal in the main bedroom and lounge, although it is patchy. To help with this problem we have installed a landline telephone with unlimited broadband/free wifi.

This cottage is ideally situated near the 2 shops & the village pub. It is a 5 minute walk to a beautiful sandy beach which, like the cottage, is dog friendly. The cottage is pleasant enough - the bed… More
Thank you for your comments. We have taken on board what you have said about the bunk bed mattress and a new one has been ordered in time for our next five-guest party.
Glad you enjoyed the hot showers.
You should have had five towels, but yours was a late booking to replace a cancellation and unfortunately we neglected to tell our cleaner there was an extra person. Our fault and we apologise.
We provided 3 new Tefal saucepans and frying pan for the kitchen at the beginning of the season, but will be adding to them and putting in more items following your suggestion.
As to the parking at the rear we've uploaded a picture to the gallery showing our Landrover Freelander in the space to give a clear idea of size. A previous tenant also used to park his people carrier there, so we are not sure what more can be done, but we appreciate your constructive criticism.

"Perfect beach holiday"
Juanperi Cottage was the perfect base for our holiday , 5 mins from a beautiful beach and a few steps away from the local shop.
Winterton is a lovely small village with non of the typical seaside arcades or attractions which we found ideal.
The cottage was excellent in its facilities and cleanliness also Peter (owner) was most helpful in every-way.
I would definitely recommend Juanperi Cottage for anyone young and old alike.
