Winterton-on-Sea is lovely village on the Norfolk coast located on the edge of the Winterton Dunes Nature Reserve, an area of outstanding natural beauty and the seaward side of Martham Nature Reserve and Horsey Mere.
Winterton once a simple fishing village in days gone by, has grown into a fantastic place to stay if just for a relaxing short break or for longer - even forever. There is plenty of accommodation to cater for all visitors wanting to get into the Norfolk laid back lifestyle. The village pub produces great food, wonderful ambience and a warm welcome to the tired and sandy dogs that find their way in with their owners. The lovely church provides a haven of tranquility and the beach cafe a great cuppa.
Winterton boasts a beautiful sandy beach and marvellous dunes, great for visitors and dog walkers alike and if you are really lucky, you will see the colony of Terns that have recently taken up residence amongst the dunes. The Terns are not the only residents to be found in this idyllic Norfolk coastal village. Natterjack Toads and adders have been spotted but thankfully are rather shy.
Just a little way south along the coast is the village of Hemsby and north can be found Sea Palling and Waxham Beach. The beaches along this part of Norfolk entice walkers of all ages, especially those with an interest in bird and seal watchering. The seal colonies bask in the winter sun with their pups, the males patrol in the water just off the beach and the mothers are very protective, so caution is advised, keep dogs on leads when watching the seals.
