Cosy Cottage Just 5 Minutes From Winterton Beach

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom, Pets Welcome, Free Wifi

Sevena cottage has all the charm of a beautiful country home, yet is situated just minutes from glorious winterton beach.

Inside: the cottage is delightful, with natural wood floors throughout, a wood burning stove and three cosy bedrooms it boasts two double rooms, one single room, a fully equipped kitchen, a downstairs bathroom with bath and shower and a spacious living room. Dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier and fridge-freezer are all provided.

Outside: with its various zones, the stunning cottage garden is perfect for pets, children and grown ups – complete with herbs to use in your cooking! A paved area with bbq, table and chairs provides a perfect spot amongst the flowers for lunch and a sunhouse at the far end of the garden provides an additional private space for a moment of calm. The cottage is situated down a private lane, where there is off-road parking for two cars.

The beach: the dunes themselves are a recognised “area of outstanding beauty” and a fantastic place to walk or spot rare birds and wildlife. Just over the sand dunes lies an unspoiled sandy beach, which is a perfect for long walks, beach games and watching the resident colony of grey seals. After all that excitement, the dunes café offers a perfect place to relax with tea and a delicious slice of cake or cooling ice cream.

The village: winterton-on-sea is a picturesque, ancient fishing village, with a 300 year old pub, 12th century church, fish and chip shop, post office and general store. Several nature walks begin in the village, which lead you through the surrounding countryside, which is an experience not to be missed.

Within the local area you can explore the norfolk broads, by boat or by foot, the medieval city of norwich, saltmarshes, quaint seaside and market villages, rolling fens, bird sanctuaries and nature reserves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This cottage is compact but beautifully decorated with everything you could need for a stay including free wi-fi. A big squishy sofa with log burner makes for cosy nights in, whilst the lovely garden with outdoor furniture meant we could enjoy the sunshine in the day and eat meals outside. The beds are very comfortable and the cottage is tucked away but just minutes from the local amenities. These include a post office, convenience store, fish & chip shop and a lovely pub at the end of the road, The Fisherman's Return, that serves great food! The only thing on the downside I can mention (and this is not a complaint), is the stairs in the cottage are pretty steep and probably not ideal for those with fellow guests and pets (like our old boy) whose legs aren't in the best nick!

Most importantly though, the cottage is literally five minutes walk to the gorgeous sandy beach. We took our dog to swim in the sea each day... delightful! There is a nice cafe at the beach serving drinks and lovely home-cooked food.

It’s also a good location from which to explore other parts of the coast too (we went to Cromer for the day).

Another lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this lovely little cottage which is just a few minutes walk from one of the best dog friendly beaches in the world. The cottage has everything you need and the secure garden is absolutely beautiful. Another wonderful holiday in Winterton and we hope to return again.

Lovely cosy cottage, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cosy cottage in the most dog friendly village we have ever been to. We struggle to find somewhere that will allow 3 dogs so were delighted to find somewhere so close to the beach. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped with everything you need to make it feel like a home from home. The enclosed garden is great for the dogs although you may need to keep an eye on them if you have small dogs as our smallest Jack Russell did find a spot she could wriggle under the fence. The beach is only a couple of minutes away with miles of dunes and sand which we loved as much as the dogs! Thank you Lynne for a wonderful week! Would definitely stay here again.

Fabulous cottage in a fabulous area

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this cottage, the village of Winterton-on-sea and Norfolk itself!

The cottage was furnished to a high standard, very clean and welcoming and had all crockery, utensils, pans, cleaning stuff you could ever need! The garden is brilliant with good furniture and well maintained. The beds were comfortable and everywhere spotless.

The village is a paradise for dog lovers, everyone seems to have at least one! The pub, two shops, beach cafe and chip shop were great. The dunes and beach are almost immediately behind the cottage. Its a delight!

The village is a good place from which to visit Norwich, Gt Yarmouth and surrounding areas inc boat trips on the broads.

We had a brilliant time!

A home from home - but by the sea.

  • 5 of 5

Pretty cottage set in a quiet friendly village with secluded garden - what more could you ask for - but there is more..... beaches, dunes, a village church and ruins with a folk tale that you must explore.

The cottage has all your home comforts and is clean with a lovely hot shower. The garden with its well established borders is both private and secure.

Whats lovely about this holiday cottage is that you can bring all of the family including the dogs, go for beautiful coastal walks seal spotting on the way and stop at the beach side cafe or village pub (Dog too) for refreshments. If your looking to relax this is the place for you.
