About Henrys Cottage


A Family Holiday or a Friends’ Retreat

Henrys Cottage is a cosy relaxing cottage, sleeping 4 plus an optional cot for a young child. The property is well equipped, containing an entrance lobby, shower room, brand new and much extended dining kitchen and a traditional original lounge. Upstairs there are two double bedrooms with excellent window views. Located in the delightfully picturesque coastal village of Winterton-on-Sea the cottage is ideal for families or couples seeking either a seaside holiday or a base to explore the Broads and wonderfully historic Norfolk.

Norfolk is the sunshine county of England with the highest number of sunny days and the least amount of rainfall – the attraction of Norfolk and the Norfolk Broads are therefore well known.

Dating from when Winterton was a thriving herring fishing community, Henrys Cottage is just five minutes walk from the beautiful sandy beach which extends for many miles in both directions. The cottage is also on the doorstep of the renowned Winterton Dunes, an extensive area of outstanding natural beauty with protected wildlife that is also a designated RSPB bird sanctuary. The rapidly growing colony of grey seals now extends to Winterton beach too, all of which make Henrys Cottage ideal for both family holidays and Norfolk weekend or weekday breaks.

There is also the much written about Winterton Beach Cafe – the cafe has featured in a number of travel articles when ‘discovered’ by travel writers not too many years ago. Please feel free to browse through the information links in my website, both for Henrys Cottage and for Winterton-on-Sea. You can check out the extensive facilities in Henrys Cottage and what’s included in your stay by visiting my Included in Henrys Cottage page.

I have a long association with Winterton-on-Sea, having a keen interest in the village history and the fascinating links the cottage has with a traditional Norfolk fisherman’s way of life.

Henrys Cottage is a Pet Free holiday option for visitors with pet allergies, with this in mind I make a genuine effort to maintain high levels of cleanliness. There is also a growing need to reduce the increasing pet related pressure on local wildlife, such as the seal colony and the valuable Little Tern bird sanctuary. Please read my No Pet Policy for more information.
