Idyllic Beachside Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with direct access onto Winterton valley and dunes straight from the garden gate. 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.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

It was our first stay here and the property was clean and welcoming. The location was ideal as we took our two dogs with us who loved the dunes and especially the beach. The only negative was that some places were closed, but we only stayed for a couple of days and that is no reflection on the cottage.

A perfect family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th week away at Beachside Cottage and we had another fantastic holiday. Winterton itself is a beautiful place with plenty to do for children nearby. The cottage itself is perfect - it's always spotless and has everything you need for a family holiday. We love stepping out of the back gate onto the sand dunes. We're looking forward to returning for our 5th holiday soon!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Beachside - we feel it is a real home from home. We love the position, a short walk from the beach over the dunes. The beach is dog friendly and great for walking or just sitting. The fish and chips sold in the village are to die for! Great place to relax and unwind. We have already booked for next year!

Location perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in this cottage having stayed in others in Winterton but found this cottage to be the best positioned if on holiday with dogs. We have two dogs and found the back garden gate straight onto the dunes was perfect. A long walk along the beach every day of our holiday meant the dogs are now exhausted, and so are we! We went to the Fishermans Return most evenings to eat, drink and relax and found the short walk was just enough. The cottage itself was clean, tidy and had a lovely welcome pack waiting for us on arrival. We never used the second bedroom but did have a peep in there and found that to be prepared to the same high standard. Overall I can honestly recommend Beachside Cottage for a holiday or even a long stay and my next time in Winterton will be here too, if I can get booked in this popular property.
