Property Details

Ship's Timbers is a one bedroom thatched cottage full of character with a lovely secluded garden - perfect for a couple. It's a short five minute stroll to the beach, and the cottage is perfectly located in the centre of Winterton, walking distance from the local pub, fish & chip shop and post office/village store.

The living room has comfortable sofas, a dining table for two and TV/DVD player. The kitchen leads off the lounge and has a cooker, microwave and fridge/freezer. The downstairs bathroom is through the kitchen and includes a bath, washbasin, WC and a shower over the bath.

A traditional Norfolk Winder steep staircase leads up from the lounge to the light and airy bedroom with a standard size double bed. Please note that as the stairs are very steep the cottage is unsuitable for the elderly or infirm. Guests are advised to use the handrails for safety. 

Behind the cottage is a fabulous private garden with a patio area and outdoor seating for two. The garden is fully enclosed and two dogs are welcome at Ship's Timbers for a small charge of £15 per dog. There is off road parking for one car.

  • Having been visiting Winterton some 14 years now, of the 7 other properties we’ve had, Ships Timbers just has to be the best we’ve stayed in & have already booked up for next year. From the welcome pack, dog bowls & biscuits, to the most comfortable bed we’ve slept in for ages, it really is a little thatched piece of Winterton that should not be missed. Very close to everything you need, with the beach, Fishermans Return & of course the Dunes Cafe. The lovely sun trap of the rear garden, not forgetting how peaceful it is there, just loved sitting there with a cuppa, chilling out after a tiring day on the beach with the hound dawg. We really can’t wait to go back again. 5*****+ & probably 10 from Bonnie.

  • What can I say about Ships Timbers? Well we absolutely loved this cottage it was perfect for us and the dogs and had everything we needed for our stay even a bowl of doggie biscuits for the pooches. Add to that the fact that we were so lucky with the weather it was a perfect stay and I cannot wait to return. We have booked with Rachel via Winterton Cottages before so had no worries whatsoever. Thanks again Rachel and please tell the owners if they ever want to sell ................

  • I would like to say what a lovely holiday we had in Winterton staying at the ships timbers. The cottage was delightful and really homely, the welcome pack was an unexpected surprise 😊 We had never been to Norfolk before and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our dogs loved the walks, especially the beach.
