Cottage Description

Herring House is a stunning barn conversion in Winterton-on-Sea.

The Cottage is only a 10 minute walk from the lovely sandy beach and dunes (with Dunes, the most excellent dog friendly cafe and 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.

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

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.

Thank you for a great holiday.

The Hibberts, Herring House

Lovely relaxing week. The walk down Low Rd across the dunes to the beach then coffee at the cafe was a daily treat. Two happy, well exercised pooches + two relaxed but tired “humans” so peaceful!

Janet, Ken, Bella and Pippa, Herring House

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

Absolutely magical stay here, the beach is stunning!!!  The property is so relaxing.  We would highly recommend Richardsons Day Boat Hire if you want to go to the Broads on a boat with your dogs!!!  Amazing!!

Bev, Simon, Ralfe and Juno, Herring House

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
