Herring House is a stunning barn conversion in Winterton-on-Sea.
The main bedroom has a 5' double bed and an ensuite bathroom whilst the second bedroom has a bunk bed (big enough for adults) and it's own bathroom with shower over bath. The kitchen and dining room look out over the courtyard garden. The highlight is a large upstairs living room with floor-to-ceiling windows which occupies the entire first floor.
Outside is a small private garden and a larger garden shared with the other cottages.
The Cottage is only a 10 minute walk from the lovely sandy beach and dunes (with excellent cafe) whilst the village's pub and fish and chip shop are locally renowned.
Tucked away in one of Norfolk's prettiest coastal villages, and within 700 yards of a glorious sandy beach, this Barn Conversion offers a welcoming holiday break, whatever the season. The perfect spot in which to relax and unwind with the dunes' Nature Reserve 6 mile circular walk almost on the doorstep, it sits just 350 yards from the local pub renowned for its good food.
The General stores, Post Office, fish and chip shop are all under 200 yards away. Fishing, day boat hire and sailing on the beautiful Broads (6miles), quaint market towns, craft centres and medieval Norwich (21 miles), with its cathedral, castle, museums, fine shopping.
We pride ourselves on the quality of our Holiday Cottages and how we look after our guests (please read our reviews). The price you pay for your holiday is always the total amount – we never charge extra for pets, fuel or firewood.
We have also managed to negotiate a number of exclusive discounts for our guests with local businesses , including the Fishermans Return pub in Winterton-on-Sea.

About this location
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 water land, 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.

"Herring House Stay"
On arrival met by owner and given a warm welcome. Winterton on Sea is a lovely charming village with a great dog friendly beach and cafe. The accommodation was disappointing because there were no ward… More
I thought, when I first saw this review, that it must have been about another cottage and somehow had been put up against ours by mistake. There is a tallboy with plenty of hanging space, over 30 utensils at the last count (did you know that if you use a pestle and mortar the contents have to go in a wok? Nor me...), the windows in the living room open like any other velux windows and are not locked and there are keys to the bedroom windows and doors very obviously hanging on a hook in the hall. I only knew for sure it was our cottage when I asked our fantastic cleaner about 'the spider in the oven' incident and found that a spider had indeed managed to inveigle itself between the two glass sheets of the oven windows (and was therefore not inside the oven) and she had had to get her tools and dismantle the oven door in order to extract it but, sadly, she could only do this after our guests had left! (You'll see from our other reviews that one of the things that is invariably commented on, is how spotless our cottages are.) The television signal is very occasionally temperamental but that is due to the rather lovely but tall church tower which sits between us and the mast. So, as I say, rather perplexing particularly as they had called afterwards to say they were looking at availability for next summer and, therefore, could I give them a discount for the stay they had just had! Rather taken aback by this strange request, and without them mentioning a single one of the issues that appeared in their review, I said that would not be possible. Perhaps not so perplexing after all.......

We (my husband, myself, our two children aged 2 and 5 and our dog) had a great stay at Herring House with extended family staying in Marram House, next door. The property is nicely decorated and very spacious, with a large living room, a good size kitchen/dining room and separate en-suite to the master bedroom as well as family bathroom and a bunkbed room. The owners have provided everything you could want and the house is spotless. The garden is also larger than it looks on the pictures. The area is absolutely lovely with a great beach cafe offering fab homemade cakes and a local pub that serves great food. Winterton beach is absolutely lovely with excellent sand dunes to walk through, both of which are dog friendly. What more could you want?
