Project Description

Poppyland is NEW for August 2020

Cottage Description

Poppyland is situated in a quiet and peaceful spot on a private estate, well outside of the hub of Winterton village and is the perfect place to get away from it all.
It is a recently modernised detached bungalow decorated with a beach theme throughout.
There are stunning, uninterrupted views of the dunes and the sea and the sea is about 250 metres away, with private access to the dunes and beach directly from the fully enclosed garden.  Please note that there are steps from the garden gate leading down to the dunes.  There is a rail for support if needed but for those with mobility issues, please do be aware as the steps are a little deeper than a normal ‘pavement’ type step.
Winterton on Sea is famous for its miles and miles (and miles) of sandy, glorious beaches and dunes, which are all wonderfully dog friendly.   The lovely village of Horsey is just a few miles away via a coastal path walk.

Location & Directions


Poppyland, 2 Bush Road, Winterton on Sea, NR29 4BZ


Coming from Winterton, follow Hemsby Road out of the village and take a left onto Edward Road.  Follow the road into the chalet park and follow the route around until you exit the park (you’ll see a red brick private house on your left.  Follow the road for a few yards more and you will see the gates of Poppyland between two larger houses on your left .


Poppylands was a most enjoyable retreat for me and my collies – they couldn’t believe they could go to the beach everyday – twice a day.  The bungalow was very comfortable and had everything we needed.  Loved the privacy and security.  Hopefully will come again.

Thank you so very much for a wonderful stay at Poppyland.  Excellent location and facilities.  We have walked and adventured everywhere! and our feet our killing!  We have avoided the busy touristy areas due to covid, but havae really relished the space and quietness.

What a fantastic place!  We will definitely be back.

The house is amazing!  The “cake” was yummy, and views awesome.

So many childhood memories re-lived this few short days away.  Even swam in the sea 😍

We had a really lovely time at Poppyland – perfect locations for our big dogs.    Just open the back gate and we were on the dunes!!!  The garden is secure as well which is perfect.    Thank you Gail for coming up with another gem for us!!! 🙂
