Winterton On Sea

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.

Book NowAvailability Calendar


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.

Reactive Friendly Award Detail

2 Star ⭐⭐

Poppyland is a 2 star Reactive Friendly Pack Holidays cottage but very much heading to a 3 star.   Here are the reasons why, but also more importantly, what aspects of the cottage may not be suitable for your reactive.  Poppyland is situated in a very quiet area, off the beaten track and facing directly onto the dunes.  Whilst there are neighbours on either side, this is the end of the road and there is no passing traffic/people at the front of the property.  

The 8 feet gates, once closed ensure that the garden is secure from the front.   Fencing on either side of the house is minimum 4 feet with some hedging on the neighbours side  The hedging and gate to the dunes side is just under 4 feet high so may not be suitable for jumpers (as there is a pathway leading down to the dunes from the other side of the gate.  

The dunes do tend to be very quiet, but do note that other people do walk through the dunes to reach the beach.  This part of Winterton is by far much more quiet that the village beach entries/exits as people need to walk 12 mins from the village location to reach this much more isolated spot.

We have had no reports of bird scarers at any time in the past 4 years, and there is no farmland round about.  There is a chicken farm across the road from Poppyland but to date,we have heard no noises, so very little risk to noise reactive dogs.

Lovely Pre-Christmas break with our 4 dogs:  Cracker, Lola, Bailey & Bella.  Perfect location especially with the gate that leads straight onto the beach.  We were lucky to have great weather on our trip also. 

Due to it being seal season, we saw many seals swimming in the sea at Winterton, but we went to Horsey beach, around 10 minutes away to see more seals.  There were over 2000 seals on the beach when we visited. 

The bungalow is in a wonderful location with private access to the beach.  The dogs loved running up and down the dunes and by the time we left we had lots of extremely tired dogs. 

The main village is only 5 mintues from where we’re staying.  The bungalow itsself is very clean and well equipped, especially for dogs, with towels, treats, poo-bags and blankets all provided.

We have very much enjoyed our stay at Poppyland.

Merry Christmas from

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.
