Guestbook comments from the owner

starWe have just enjoyed a wonderful stay at Compass Cottage, 5 mins from dunes and gorgeous Winterton beach and 30 seconds from the fabulous pub! The cottage has everything you could hope for and more with a lovely complimentary goodie bags and fluffy dressing gowns to wear for the stay, and every other thing to make it an amazing home from home. Great location too, we enjoyed crabbing at Walberswick and lovely days at Southwold, Thetford Forest and Dinosaur Adventure! Great fish and chip shop in the village too we will be back!

We all loved it.

  • 4 of 5

A very well equipped, charming cottage with many thoughtful details - pictures, ornaments and colour decoration. A real home-from-home.

Minor problems were dealt with swiftly and efficiently by Mark. The area is ideal for dog-lovers as is the secure garden.

Many thanks for a happy two weeks.

Fantastic property in great location

  • 5 of 5

Yet again we were not disappointed. Our 6th visit to Compass Cottage, a comfortable and homely cottage in the lovely village of Winterton on Sea. An addition since our last stay of a new all singing all dancing T.V. And some very comfy sofas in the conservatory were a nice surprise. A welcome pack was very much appreciated. Our holiday was made even better by a week of glorious weather!

Absolutely lovely

  • 4 of 5

Another very relaxing couple of weeks spent at Compass Cottage. The weather has been glorious and our black Labrador has had a ball on the beach. Winterton on Sea is a lovely little village and the long walks so relaxing especially when followed by an excellent lunch at The Nelson Head at Horsey.. The cottage is vey well equipped and comfortable. A problem with the boiler which was fixed the very next day. Have already booked for next year.

Compass Cottage, Winterton on Sea

  • 4 of 5

Very well equipped cottage very close to the sea. Ideal for dog walkers as the dunes are less than a 5 minute walk away.

All you would hope for in a cottage at this price. Excellent "Welcome pack" of wine, chocolates etc. Central Heating highly efficient 100%. Winterton a good base for getting to other interesting places in Norfolk. Village quiet with few amenities apart from Post Office, general store, fish and chip shop and pub.

Compass Cottage was all round a very good place to stay for a week.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest properties we have ever stayed in. Clean, fresh smelling, comfortable & extremely well equipped. Set in a quiet location in a picturesque village the cottage has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Five minute walk to the beach. Dogs loved the vast expanse of dunes & everywhere is dog friendly. Would definitely return.
