Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Great Yarmouth & Coast - Henry's Cottage

Winterton-on-Sea Holiday Cottage

Henrys’ is a cosy relaxing cottage, sleeping 4, it's well equipped and contains, an entrance lobby, downstairs shower room, brand new and much extended dining kitchen and lounge, upstairs are two double bedrooms and is ideal for families and couples alike wanting a seaside holiday or to use as a base for exploring the broads and this delightful area.

A suntrap garden, multifuel stove and open fire make this an ideal holiday cottage all year round.

Pleasantly situated in the small village of Winterton-on-Sea Henry's cottage is just 5 minutes walk from the beautiful sandy beach and dunes. The village also boasts an excellent local pub, shop, post office, fish and chip shop and beach cafe all close by.

Henry's is a former fisherman's cottage that dates back approximately 150 years with comfortable lounge, fabulous newly fitted kitchen dining room seating 4, shower room and two double bedrooms, with draws, wardrobe or hanging space. (one also has a cot bed suitable for a small child). As an old cottage I have tried to remain sympathetic to it's rustic character and charm, allowing you to enjoy it's relax and unwind in pleasant surroundings.

Outside there is parking for two cars and pleasant gardens both front and back, a decking area with garden furniture to enjoy the first cup of tea of the day, a brick built barbecue and sun loungers available for the most relaxing of days.

Situated in the heart of the village there's always someone to talk to, and you're never far from anywhere, in addition to the pubs and shops there is an excellent children's playground for a change from the beach, while on the edge of the village is a beautiful church dating back to the 1500's and seals often seen on the beach and playing in the sea, meaning that there is always something to do or somewhere to visit.

About Marie Ungless

Although I live in Nottingham I've owned the cottage for a while now and this is my 'special go to place' where I have had many happy times. The cottage is named after my son who is now 14 but has been going all his life - it was his first holiday! We have spent many wonderful days in the cottage and exploring the surrounding area regardless of the weather! I'm sure you'll have a fabulous holiday too.

It was fate when I found the cottage, (I wasn't even looking at the time), but a series of events led me to the cottage and to buying at auction - one of the best decisions of my life - other than having my son and marrying my second husband!

Marie Ungless purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Marie Ungless chose Great Yarmouth & Coast

Henrys cottage is in the heart of the village and is a wonderful homely place that immediately welcomes you, allowing you to relax and unwind ready for your holiday adventure. Open fires make it cosy in winter and the fantastic sun trap of a garden make it the ideal relaxation spot on a sunny day on the sunloungers provided. The garden has a seating area and BBQ with parking for upto 2 cars.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is essentially a two up two down fishermans cottage, with a unique feeling that wraps itself around you - its a house that makes you smile. It's not the poshest or the most modern but it's warm and welcoming and the moment you walk in the door, you start to relax and unwind - the perfect holiday destination. Set in a friendly village with just enough facilities to satisfy your needs but not so many that it overwhelms.

A lovely family country cottage

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my 2 children had 4 lovely relaxing days at Henry's cottage.

Our half term holiday was perfect (despite the fact that it was February and a bit chilly)

The cottage was warm (electric blankets a great touch) and cosy, with plenty of DVDs and games for the kids at the end of the day or on a rainy afternoon.

With Winterton beach a 5 minute walk away and Great Yarmouth a 30 minute drive the cottage is perfectly placed.

Everything you need is there, all you have to take is clothes and food,and Marie the owner could not have been more welcoming or accomodating.....none of us wanted to leave!!

We will certainly return

Thank you

Brave grandparents

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Norfolk with our own 4 children, it had to be a 'must' for a holiday our 4 grandchildren. What a great choice we made by choosing Winterton and staying at Henrys cottage. Our 3 grandchildren loved the cottage and the provisions offered enabled us to have a very relaxing stay. We loved the area and on a daily basis walked the dunes (often singing Going on a Bear Hunt for some reason - our grandchildren being 6,4 and 3). We also enjoyed meeting many friendly locals on our walks and the local provision store provided everything that we needed. The shower cubicle was large enough to put all 3 grandchildren in together and on the whole the 'quaintness' of the cottage became so appealing to all of us. There was such a variety of things that we did that the week soon went! My husband and I loved our holiday and will always talk about Winterton with great fondness. There were moments with our grandchildren that we will always cherish. I am in the process now of making a 'holiday book' for them to keep and recall the lovely time that we spent at Henrys Cottage. I am hoping though, that we will be able to return soon!

Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just booked for our second stay!!! We stayed at Henry's cottage in august last year and have just booked again for this August too. What a beautiful clean and well equipped cottage in an ideal location. The garden is lovely to sit out on in a summers evening while the children play. A 5 minutes stroll takes you to a stunning beach where you can see the seals or even visit the Dunes cafe. Ideal for children or couples. You could park your car up for your stay and not use it again until you travel home. We travelled with our 2 children aged 14 and 10 who absolutely loved their holiday here. The village has all local amenities a pub, post office, fish and chip shop and another small shop. I did an online supermarket delivery which arrived as we did. A short journey takes you to the amusements in Hemsby. Our favourite UK holiday cottage by far in a very relaxed and quiet village.Looking forward to August for our return visit to Henrys cottage and the fabulous changes I see in the photos of the extension and brand new kitchen. You would not be disappointed if you booked Henrys cottage for your holiday.

Fantastic little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a few nights over the october half term and had the most fantastic time. I hadn't realised it was in easy walking distance of a beautiful beach where we could see seals. The cottage was charming - plenty of space for all five of us (the kids were happy bunking down on airbeds) and it was the perfect base for exploring the local area. Fantastic

Perfect Get-away!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Henry's Cottage for 3 nights and it was perfect for what we needed. There was a cot in the main bedroom for my 16 month old son along with a stair gate and travel chair for eating. The location is gorgeous and the cottage is delightful. Quaint and pretty, it made for a great base for our exploring of this side of Norfolk. I also found it to be excellent value for money. I would highly recommend this cottage, particularly for a small family who want to get away and stay somewhere quiet and peaceful but also be near to Great Yarmouth and some excellent local attractions. I would also recommend Pettits Animal Park if you have little ones, low cost and a great day out, only 30 mins drive from the cottage too. I am pretty sure we will return to henry's Cottage in the future.

Winterton on Sea
Car: recommended

Winterton-on-Sea is a small, quiet and historic fishing village on the east coast of Norfolk on the edge of the broads, and is approximately 8 miles up the coast from Great Yarmouth.

Unspoiled sand dunes and beautiful beaches make it ideal for relaxing seaside holidays. For those looking for a bit more activity the dunes nature reserve is within an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (SSSI and SAC), and is ideal for bird watching and walkers. What's more an large seal colony has made it's home just north of Winterton, and are a delight to visit.

Winterton also provides easy access to the broads with numerous place locally to hire boats or exploring the broads.

And if you fancy a change of pace Great Yarmouth is only 20 mins away with all the bright lights and entertainment you'd expect from a large traditional seaside town with lots of varied activities to keep the whole family entertained.
