3 Star Reactive Dog Friendly

3 Star Reactive Dog Rated

This Winterton on Sea dog friendly cottage is a 2 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage. Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive dog. Herring House is situated in a quiet area of Winterton village. There are neighbours around in the surrounding cottages and a cottage next door that shares a dividing wall. The height of the courtyard wall and fence is between 5 and 6 foot high around, and the courtyard is accessed via the main door. Parking is in a designated parking space outside of the courtyard, so do secure your dogs when exiting the car until you are in the courtyard. There are quiet walks nearby (some local bridle paths and access to the dunes) via a pathway at the end of the lane. As Herring House is in the village, there is no surrounding farmland and no reports of hearing bird scarers at all. As there is a path to the dunes at the end of the lane, you may well see other people/dog walkers taking this route.

Herring House, Winterton on Sea

(26 customer reviews)

Herring House is an absolutely stunning ‘upside-down’ barn conversion in the gorgeous seaside town of Winterton on Sea. This dog friendly cottage in Winterton on Sea is only a 10 minute walk from the lovely sandy beach and dunes as well as The Fishermans Return dog friendly pub and a smashing local fish and chip shop.

Winterton really is one of Norfolk’s prettiest coastal villages, and as Herring House is so close to the glorious sandy beach and dunes, it really is a fab place to spend a short break or a week long holiday.

  4. Carol, Alex and Monty

    Our first time at Herring House and really pleased, as lovely house and ideal location for some lovely walks, used the car just once. Weather was a bit hit and miss but did not stop our enjoyment on a lovely relaxing holiday.
    Great fish and chips in the village.
    Once again, a lovely holiday, all thanks to Pack Holidays xx

    Lovely holiday again at Herring House. Loving the new walk in shower and the change to the bedroom.
    Beautiful weather and lovely walks to Hemsby, Hector swan all the way again. He is very sad to be leaving! Thank you Gail for help and support and a great booking system! xx

  6. Ray, Karen, Kathy and woofers Remy, Wilma and Daisy

    Great location to the beach and dunes, our woofers loved it!! Had all we needed in the house
    Loads to do – went to Hemsby, Great Yarmouth, Thrigby Wildlife Hall (highly recommended), the greyhound racing (good night) and went to The Boathouse for Sunday roast. really good and good value for money
    Fishermans Retreat in the village had great food, very dog friendly and we have had great weather. Poppys Tea Room in the village is lovely and well worth a visit
    All a high standard from Pack Holidays as always!!!! No complaints xxx

  7. Ruth Graesser

    What a wonderful week the 3 of us had at Herring House. As soon as we arrived at the property we were just in love with it. The photos on the website are true to form but even with those great photos the property is even better than we could have imagined.
    So clean, so welcoming with the little arrival pack and everything we could need.
    We were blessed with warm weather for walks along the dunes, by the Horsey Mill and via footpaths and bridleways.
    It honestly was the most relaxing week and it was a sad day on Friday when we had to pack up.
    Thanks Gail for making it a wonderful dog-friendly, stress-free location. We for sure will plan another visit.

  8. Denise and Mark

    Anniversary long wekeend. A lovely quiet place to relax and reflect away from the usual busy life
    Great location with lots of activities, if you want, just a few miles radius 20 to 30 mins
    Lovely little village with well stocked supplies, fish and chips, pub a few minutes walk away.
    We were very lucky with the weather too
    Both feeling chilled now, but back to the hustle and bustle of Kent now

  9. The Hares

    Two hoomans, 4 then 5 dogs – this was a great place to stay. Loved the super comfy beds, the great upstairs and the ability to segregate different dog groups if necessary!
    Yard worked well as did the road exit from the bedrooms
    Easy, pleasant walks to the dunes, the beach and the countryside. Beautifully quiet!
    Well equipped and quirky space.
    Gail, as ever, super helpful.
    Wonderful stay we will be back! Thank you!
    PS Tried Nawdab Indian (cash only). Prompt (20 mins) delivery and food was good.
    PPS Club sandwich at Dunes cafe was a treat and bought some more lovely dog biscuits from Happisburgh – self service shed outside the house

  10. Janet and Steve with Jazz, Pixie and Mabel

    A lovely comfy holiday home in a perfect location for the beach, the dunes and the pub. Lovely to just walk there most nights for dinner. We’ve worked our way through the menu. The dogs have had the best holiday – they went on a train for the first time – Bure valley Railway and ate at the Doggy Diner in Cromer. Well worth a visit with the pooches. They also had fun at the K9 Unleashed field. But their favourite thing and ours was peaceful walks across the dunes early evenings and then back to The Fishermans for dinner. I’m going home feeling very relaxed. Thank you! xx

  11. Wendy Hesketh-Dewar

    We recently stayed at Herring House with our 5 dogs over Easter.
    Three of our dogs are rescues from Many Tears Animals Rescue and it was their first ever holiday and experience of the sea.
    We wanted somewhere they would be relaxed in but close to the sea.
    The holiday let was so lovely and comfortable. The dogs were very relaxed and enjoyed exploring.
    We would definitely rebook again as we found it the best accommodation we’ve stayed in at Winterton

  12. Colin and Lorna

    An exceptional cottage superbly furnished and all hooman and doggy needs thought of. We have stayed in three Pack Holidays cottages and each has its own wonderful charm and exquisite location. Very highly recommended

  13. Geoff and Ginny and Blue

    Lovely cosy week here at Herring House. Coffee and Norfolk shortcake at The Dunes cafe, amazing shellfish at Dabs Crabs and huge portions at The Fishermans Return pub. Many thanks from us all. PS What a great idea to have dog tags for use during the visit!! xx

  14. Bev, Mike, Archie, Bert, Sid + Stan

    Lovely week, lots of attention to details, dog beds and biscuits. A lovely cake as well as the weather which was incredibly hot, speaking to the locals it always is lol.
    Lovely place, lovely village, lovely people.

  15. Jim, Penny, David, Jo +Tia

    Lovely cottage, beautiful weather and stunning location. We enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing holiday in very pleasant surroundings. Lovely food at the pub, very friendly village. Poppyfields at Horsey is well worth a visit.
    Thank you for a lovely holiday

  16. Trish and Family

    Had a woderful time helped by great weather, Local beach fantastic for walking with Stan. Travelled inland to Reedham and walked along the river to the Mill. Nice pub on the riverside there just people-watching. Cromer and the beach at West Runton are well worth a visit. The cottage is very well equipped and clean. As promised all the throws and dog equipment were more than adequate.

  17. Clive and Deirdre

    A lovely holiday for us two and our four flat coated retrievers. Loved the dunes and the beautiful pristine beach with seals close to the shore and bobbing up as if they wanted a game with the dogs. Best visit was the gardens at East Ruston Old Vicarage and we enjoyed Cromer (fresh crabs) and Thrigby Hall walled garden. Herring House was lovely and had all we needed

  18. Horne Family

    Lovely holiday. There were 4 dogs this year. Max is a black poodle about 1 year old – he was found abandoned in a skip along with his two brothers. We couldn’t resist him, he loved the beach and the sea. The other three, Lucy, Mylo and Tilly couldn’t keep up with him. Thank you from them all ! Doggy paradise

  19. Anonymous

    Had a fabulous time at Herring House, weather was kind to us too! The cottage was very clean and well equipped, everything we needed for us and our gorgeous Springador Maisie. Fab beach walks….lovely food at The White Horse, Neatishead. Thanks Gail and Co. We will be back xxx

  20. Mitch, Lynne Emmi and Tam Tam

    What a lovely place, well kitted out with everything we needed, loads of throws and towels for the dogs. Was a bit worried it may be cold as its November, but there was a log burner and we didn’t need it!! The place was super toastie and warm and comfortable. The TV even had Netflix which was a bonus for dark nights. It was a minutes walk to super beaches and sand dunes for the furbabies and a real dog friendly pub for the hoomans. 5 STAR!

    Would highly recommend the Royal China Chinese takeaway in Martham just 5 mins drive. You’ll never go hungry with their large and tasty portions. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended for a quiet, restful holiday

    Thanks

  21. Paul and Nadine

    Herring House was lovely accommodation for the three of us plus dogs. The beach was great and the dogs had lots of exercise. We recommend the local fish and chip shop and the pub. The local shop has most things anyone could need – even during the heatwave. The large lounge was a blessing

    Thank You

  22. Sandra, Jim, Jasper and Ivy

    We have had an amazing time in Herring House. Absolutely perfect for our needs, super dog friendly, close to the beach and and a very quiet village.

    The large upstairs is fantastic and we were able to relax after long walks out and about. We would recommend visiting the beaches at Happisburgh, Horsey, Overstrand and Wells-Next-The-Sea. We also visited Sheringham, Blickling Hall and our facourite Felbrigg Hall. Poppys Cafe was fantstic also Poppylands and a visit to the Broads at Potter Heigham. We have had a fabulous time with sunny dates and sandy paws!!

    Thank you

  23. Martine, Rob and Hector

    Absolutely fantastic stay – our third year and it feels like home at Herring House. We have loved the beach at Winterton as usual, walked to Hemsby and taken Hector swimming at Sea Palling a few times. Hector loves Herring House and I think if we left him here he would be most happy!

    Thank you Gail and Pack Holidays

  24. JC, Laura and Hugo

    Once again a fabulous week! Norfolk never fails!! Weather could have been better but we are waterproof!

    Hugo loves the beaches as do we. Loving the double bed in 2nd bedroom, great idea! Thank you to everyone involved with making our stay memorable, Gail you’re the best!!

  25. The Topliss Family

    This is our 3rd stay in Herring house, such a relaxing break for us and the dogs. We love it so much we are coming back next year. This is our dream cottage. The beaches, surrounding villages and Winterton itself are absolutely gorgeous x

  26. Mel, Sara, Charlie 🐾& Shade 🐾

    We have all, both humans and canines had a lovely time at Herring House. Winterton is a very beautiful part of the Norfolk coast. Fantastic long walks over the dunes and cosy nights in the cottage. Thank you, as always for the amazing hospitality.
    See you again very soon
