                                                                                                    As soon as we arrived our children (aged 9 and 5) were bursting to explore the cottage and to see their room. None of us were disappointed - from the welcome pack to the size and cleanliness of the property. Although we came prepared the outside store (I couldn't resist a peek) contained a treasure-trove of items you might require. We find on reviews that people say many things and make out that properties are either super fantastic or pick at silly little things and I don't believe in doing either. The simple fact is that if we were to return to Winterton-on-Sea then this is the first property I would look at to see if it were free for our stay. This says it all - we took weeks looking at different properties until my wife stumbled across this one which ticked all of our boxes. As an aside the local beach is so close, although we prefer to drive as it is easier to "hose down" the kids with water afterwards, the post office and chip shop you pass on the way as well as the other shop - all handy when returning from the beach, needing a paper and some extra items to make sandwiches. Handy hint for Winterton beach : Don't follow everyone else who go down the slope by the side of the café - instead drive further (just say you want to do this when paying for parking) inside the car park over towards the black huts - there is an additional path there that takes you away from everyone else. Hemsby (for the "slot machines") is a five minute (if that) drive away with a huge choice of arcades - "Mrs B's" suited us for all round family safety - go right in and use the beach car park followed by a round of crazy golf.

We had our dog with us and the access to the beach is closeby for his daily walks. The Hickling property was clean and well equipped for our stay. A lovely relaxing holiday, and we will be returning.
