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!

A charming cottage, beautifully presented and well equipped for a family of 4.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful week staying in Compass Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely - a perfect size for a family of 4 and well equipped. The en-suite in the double room was an added bonus, and we found everything very comfortable. We will definitely be returning to stay at Compass Cottage soon!

excellent

  • 5 of 5

On arriving we were so impressed by the cleanliness and the homely feeling of the property the situation was ideal as it was close to the beach dunes and coastal path. We enjoyed our stay very much and would not hesitate to book again at this beautiful cottage.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week with our dogs. We all had a great time in Winterton and rest of Norfolk. Great location to walk the dogs on the sand dunes or the beach. Although you have to pay to use the car park. The cottage was near to the pub and not too far to walk to the chip shop or shop.

Cottage garden fully enclosed, although a little small.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the owners property and would thoroughly recommend. Will need to book early.

Lovely cottage and stay in Winterton

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a lovely stay at Compass Cottage with everything you need for a peaceful break by the sea, ideally located near the pub with good food, fish and chip and corner shops. The cottage itself has been tastefully decorated and all linens were clean and provided. The garden is great for dogs as is completely enclosed and not overlooked. Fully kitted out kitchen with everything you need and a welcome pack which is a nice touch.

The beach is lovely and 5-10 mins away we preferred to walk right and along the coastal path for 5 minutes away from the cafe (not impressed) to avoid crowds, saying that beach is huge and plenty of space even in the height of summer. We went to the Fishermans local pub and had good meals each time and also Nelson Head at Hornsby where the seals are - we were very lucky to see so many seals. We also stopped at Poppylands cafe for cream tea which was a nice vintage cafe.

We had days out to Yarmouth for the rides, Wells (1.5 Hours with traffic) for the town , Cromer pier and sea front (1 hour). We hired a day boat from Sutton Staithe boatyard highly recommend a beautiful day - we had the whole day 7 hours for £90 so went up and down the Broads 4 of us plus 2 medium size dogs and was just right. Our teenage daughter also enjoyed steering!

Overall a lovely quiet beach holiday in a great village we will definitely revisit and hopefully to Compass Cottage, only room for improvement would be Wifi as this was pretty rubbish but with so much to do it's not a hardship.

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.
