The Bolthole is a delightful, refurbished single storey cottage located in the heart of the pretty coastal village of Winterton-on-sea. In walking distance of the beach, local shops and the pub, the cottage is also easily accessible to the Norfolk Broads. It offers a great base for a beach holiday, walking in the dunes or watching the seals.

With one double and one twin bedroom The Bolthole is suitable for couples or families and well behaved dogs are welcome however we would appreciate them being kept off the furniture. The cottage is entirely no smoking. The cottage has a shower room, is centrally heated and boasts a comfortable open plan lounge/diner with a wood burning stove, TV, DVD, CD, and iPod/smartphone doc. Wi-Fi is also included at no extra cost.

The well equipped kitchen includes an oven and hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher. The outside space offers an enclosed garden with a patio, table and parasol. You can fit two cars into the drive, allowing off street parking - a bonus in this popular village.

In addition there is a shed where beach paraphernalia or jackets can be stored to avoid cluttering up the cottage. For November to March bookings an initial supply of logs is included, further supplies of logs can be purchased from the Post Office/general store.

The East Anglia region

Winterton-on-Sea is located on the East Norfolk coast. The popular Norfolk Broads, where it is possible to enjoy water sports as well as hiring boats and taking organised trips are ideally located nearby and are a great area to watch wildlife and birds. There are a number of interesting Broad-side pubs and restaurants which provide an enjoyable break. For those who are more active, just up the coast at Sea Palling it is possible to hire jet skis as an alternative to a lazy sail on the Broads.

Norwich, a two-cathedral city and county town of Norfolk, is half an hour away by car and offers a wide variety of museums, restaurants and pubs, and is amongst the top ten shopping cities in the country; a complete change from the peace of Winterton.

Also a short drive away are the resorts of Caister and Great Yarmouth. The award-winning 'Time and Tide' museum, of interest to both adults and children and which records the history of Great Yarmouth and the herring industry, is well worth a visit. Dotted around the county are interesting market towns and places of historic interest, all offering an insight into Norfolk life.


The pretty historic village of Winterton on Sea is located just to the south of the Winterton Nature Reserve area of the east coast. The village is separated from the coastline by extensive sand dunes which are excellent for walkers, and very popular with both local people and visitors who take their dogs for long walks there. The beach is excellent for people of all ages and the cosy 'Dunes Cafe' offers drinks and snacks throughout the day.

It is a well known area for birdwatching and there is a protected tern-breeding sanctuary within the Reserve which has been very successful in increasing the number of terns visiting the area. Further areas renowned for birdwatching stretch all round the northern coast. Just up the coast at Horsey is a well established seal colony, again protected during the breeding season, and the seals often stray down into the waters by Winterton and are fun to watch.
