Guestbook comments from the owner

A lovely cottage and the owner had provided more than we expected. we were comfortable and warm and enjoyed our holiday very much.A short drive into Gt Yarmouth to enjoy the sea front and the shops. After a disappointing holiday in another property here in Winterton three years ago this certainly made up for it. I found the owner very helpful and patient in making our booking and therefore would not hesitate in returning to Compass Cottage.

Kind Regards

Bill and Sandra Brown.

Fantastic cottage in lovely village

  • 5 out of 5
Compass cottage is a pretty little cottage in the very friendly village of Winterton. We had a great stay.
The owner has worked hard at making the cottage very relaxing and homely with nice extra touches so you felt on holiday (but also 'at home') as soon as you arrived. It seemed everything we needed was already there.
The village has a pub with fantastic food, and a small local store so no need to go far for boring reasons!
The garden was fenced to a good height for dogs and also had a lot of trees and shrubs so the sun got in but we never felt overlooked. Apart from an odd pigeon getting too close this also meant the dogs didn't react to the neighbours so again everything was made easy.
The local beaches were good and dog friendly.
Cannot recommend it highly enough - I am already planning how I can fit in a return earlier than I had planned!!

Lovely New Year break at Compass Cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We have just had a wonderful, relaxing break at Compass Cottage with our 2 daughters and 2 dogs. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and cosy and very easy to stay in. The beds are all comfortable, the towels huge and luxurious - very much appreciated by us all! The kitchen is well-equipped. Post office and pub very friendly and only a short stroll away. Fish & chip shop very handy the evening we arrived. We walked on the lovely beach at Winterton which is only 5/10 mins walk away. We also walked on the beach at Sea Palling which we enjoyed - cafe there for after walk Cappuccino or whatever you fancy - also a cafe on the beach at Winterton. Garden very dog friendly and I'm sure human friendly in the Summer! Very thoughtful things left if you take dogs. Also many thoughtful extras for the humans too such as milk, tea, coffee, sugar and a bottle of wine. Thanks Samantha your thoughtfulness was very much appreciated by us all. You have clearly thought about what you would like to find if you arrived for a stay at Compass Cottage - not many self-catering places do this. We would love to stay at Compass Cottage again sometime. Our first holiday in Norfolk and we loved it!

Perfect doggie holiday:-)

  • 5 out of 5
Our second stay at the lovely Compass Cottage, once again a perfect little cottage in a perfect location. As always the cottage was clean and well equipped. The beach is very beautiful and once again we were rewarded with the seals and their pups on the beaches. Throughly recommend the area and the cottage if you love a walking/eating/drinking holiday with your dogs!

Fantastic Break

  • 5 out of 5
Another brilliant stay. We keep coming back so that must say something. Fitted out to very high standard & exceptionally clean. You would not believe that most of the visitors to this property take dogs. Our dog loved the beach and the dunes which are all less than 10 minutes walk away, and is now having an extended sleep because he is shattered!!

Would recommend this property and village to anyone. Look in the visitors book and you will see the amount of people who return regularly to prove my point.
