Primrose Cottage

Winterton-On-Sea, Norfolk

Primrose Cottage is situated in the lovely village of Winterton-on-Sea.  It is famous for its miles and miles (and miles) of sandy , glorious beaches and dunes, which are all wonderfully dog friendly. The picturesque village of Horsey is just a few miles away via a coastal path walk and that’s where all the beautiful seal colonies congregate, especially in the winter and in more recent years, the colony is spreading along the Winterton beach and dunes too.

Private parking

We stayed at Primrose Cottage in late April. We really enjoyed our week in the cottage. It is very well appointed and the decor is fresh and modern, it was scrupulously clean. We liked the village and close proximity to the beach and local beauty spots and walks. We also enjoyed the quiet location and private outside area which was perfect for relaxing especially as it is south facing so gets the sun all day. We will be recommending the cottage to friends and family and look forward to revisiting it ourselves in the future.

Reactive Friendly Award Details

2 Star⭐⭐

Primrose 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. 

Snowdrop is situated in a slightly quieter area of Winterton village (and not directly in the centre of the village).   It is in a residential street so there is more activity than in a very rural location,

The garden is secure with 5-6 feet high fencing on either side of the garden (there are neighbours on both sides. There is a 3 feet gate to enter the garden directly from the private car parking space.

The front of the house has an alley way used by Snowdrop and Primrose for access (and bin storage).

The garden is accessed via the conservatory patio doors and dogs can be seen clearly/supervised from the conservatory and living room.

Whilst there are neighbours on either side, the height of the fencing at Primrose means that being overlooked is limited and people could only be seen if they chose to pop a head ‘over the fence’.

It is a 5 min walk out of Chapel Road and to the right to access the dunes. This is by far the quietest way to access the beach, but you can choose to go via the centre of the village if you choose.

As it is in the village we have had no reports of bird scarers being heard in the village, but as there are other residents locally you may hear other residents dogs barking on occasion.

Parking is in a private space to the rear of the property with access directly through the cottage courtyard gate and to the front door. The parking area is open so please be aware of this when exiting the car with dogs. The dogs are secure as soon as the garden gate is closed.

Guest Feedback

A fantastic weeks stray at Primrose Cottage, so comfortable a home from home.  The dogs settled in really well and enjoyed exploring the house and garden.  The village of Winterton so welcoming, the locals friendly and helpful.


Primrose Cottage, Winterton-on-Sea

Lots of lovely places to walk with the dogs.  The dunes and beach, both north and south, are within walking distance of the house and other places such as Hickling Broad are a short drive away.  The local chip shop is brilliant.   Best to phone your order through as they cook to order and will give you a collection time.  Fishermans Return  is open all day, does food and dogs are welcome in all areas of the pub

Thank you for such a wonderful week!  Cottage was perfect, immaculately clean and had everything provided and more.  Great access to the beach.  We loved seeing seals in the waves!  Our furbaby loved his first beach holiday too!  Good shops nearby and very central to a lot of locations.

Our first Pack Holiday of many to be sure!! There was time to relax but also lots of things to do.  We hired a boat from Martham which was lovely and so convenient.  Thanks so much we were not disappointed.

You really thought of everything for pets too, patch of grass for fussy bums like our two, poo bags, towels, bowels and even a toy!  We cannot recommend Primrose Cottage enough !! We had had a fabulous holiday.  Thank 🙂 You xx
