Herring House is an absolutely stunning ‘upside-down’ barn conversion in the gorgeous seaside town of Winterton on Sea. The cottage is only a 10 minute walk from the lovely sandy beach and dunes (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.

Reactive Friendly Award Details
Herring House 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.
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 fences is between 5 and 6 feet 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 dogs when exiting from 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 it 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.

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
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.
Brilliant Cottage everything you need in it for humans and dogs. Easy walk to the beach over dunes.
We’ve had a lovely holiday. Thank you for letting us stay.
