Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful holiday cottage, we have stayed at many holiday properties big & small, the owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure everything is provided, even down to little things like cotton wool balls in bathroom and spare light bulbs. This cottage is delightful from the time you enter the cosy lounge.

Not far from beach so wonderful for the dogs, they had a great time. Good Beach cafe with sumptuous cakes! Winterton is a lovely village, lots of thatched cottages and roses round the doors. Although in a quiet village not far from the rest of the world!

Absolutely dreadful

  • 1 of 5

Very shabby interior, the place was dirty the carpets and flooring needs replacing, beds were so old I couldn't walk after sleeping just one night on it. The toilets and kitchen was filthy and the place reeked of cigarettes. Had to book elsewhere and didn't get a refund. This place is not as you would expect for the price.

Comfy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Admiral Cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped. We had everything we needed. Winterton is one of the loveliest villages in this part of the world, with a good pub selling good food and an excellent fish and chip shop. Dunes Cafe is well worth a visit too.

Lovely, cosy place just 5min on foot from the sea

  • 4 of 5

Peaceful location very close to the sea, no car is required as just 5minutes to walk over the dunes to the sea. Sandy beach is never ending ... Cottage is quite well equipped. Shower is quite large and the bathroom with bath & shower downstairs is huge. Definitely would recommend to stay at this cottage. One thing need to note, as it is an old cottage, that the stairs leading to upstairs bedroom & bathroom are quite steep and narrow but it, of course, adds to the cottage's charming character. We are very glad that we found this place. The owner, Samantha, was very helpful and accommodating which made our experience of booking and staying at the property very lovely.

Great cottage and great place for a relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

Cosy warm quaint well equipped cottage. Very near pub, sea, beach cafe, little store and post office. Have stayed here about 5 times. Finding it very hard to get the dates I'd like to go back again so I'm not going to rave any more about it. Ha.

The sun shone, it was bitterly cold, but no rain - hurray! We've been back to Winterton several times, the beautiful beaches and sand dunes make for great dog walks.

We'll be back.................
