Fabulous location , plenty of paths to walk the dog and cosy quirky cottage . What more do you need !!! We were disappointed about the log burner being out of action but the heaters were adequate but didn't quite create the atmosphere of a toasty fire ! Loved Winterton and had a very good meal at the Fishermans Rest which let the dog in too !! In fact most of the pubs were dog friendly which is a big plus from our point of view ! We will be back !! Jenny , Derek and Reggie the dog .

Quality furnishings with a nice beach theme. Comfy beds and the house was warm during our December stay. It has been six years since we last stayed here and we wondered why we left it so long.
