Property Details

April Cottage is a beautifully furnished cottage right in the heart of Winterton-on-Sea. Full of character, the cottage has been lovingly restored by the current owners to provide stylish and well equipped accommodation.

Downstairs, the living room has comfortable sofas, TV/DVD, woodburning stove and patio doors leading to the cobbled courtyard behind the cottage. The separate dining room features an original stone floor, and the kitchen is equipped with an electric oven, fridge with a small freezer compartment and a microwave. The washing machine is in the outhouse which is just outside the kitchen door.

Upstairs there are two beautifully appointed bedrooms. Bedroom one has a comfortable kingsize bed, and bedroom two has a standard double bed and also has a newly installed shower. The upstairs bathroom features a slipper bath, as well as a washbasin and WC. Please note that although the stairs leading to the first floor are steep they are straight up and down (not Norfolk Winders) and easy to use.

Behind the cottage is a pretty cobbled courtyard with a bench and a table and chairs. The small courtyard is fenced, and there is also a gravel parking area with space for one car. Up to 1 large dog or 2 medium/small dogs are welcome at April Cottage.

  • The cottage was beautiful and clean. It was cosy and the bed was comfortable. We had a couple of meals at the pub and had fish and chips and a Vanuatu visit to the dunes cafe for their lovely scones with jam and cream. Walks with our dog over the dunes and in the sea we also saw loads of seals and the weather wasn’t bad either we would definitely stay there again .

  • We had a truly delightful week at Winterton-on-sea and stayed in the lovely April cottage. It is beautifully presented and has everything needed for a week away from home, very clean, welcoming and very comfortable. The proximity to the beach, the local pub restaurant and a little shop meant we had everything we could ask for right on the doorstep. Thank you for letting us stay.

  • I have stayed in a number of cottages in Winterton and April Cottage is my new favourite. It is a really lovely and cosy cottage in a great location. It is beautifully decorated and kitted out with everything you need. WiFi, log burner and parking are also great positives.

  • Spent 4 nights here last week. Lovely cottage, well equipped with all you need for a pleasant stay. Had a minor issue with tv reception which the owner rectified immediately, thank you. Fantastic walks with a great beach cafe doing lovely breakfasts, lunches and cakes !! Just check opening times out of season. We were blessed with the most brilliant weather which was just the topping on a great relaxing few days. Have no hesitation recommending April Cottage. Thank you.

  • We have just spent a week in April cottage it was beautiful, cosy & comfortable. Everything you could possibly wish for, a quiet relaxing time away. A short walk away from the beach, pub in the heart of the village. Perfect!

  • Just arrived back from a weeks stay at April Cottage. I can say it was a lovely cottage, I can say it’s cosy, I can also say you will not regret booking the cottage, I didn’t last year and that’s why I booked this year. Word to the owners Ian and Shirley, love the new colour of the cottage, more classier than the lemon.

  • We were so pleased on arriving at April Cottage to see how beautifully it was decorated and it was immaculately clean. We were even more delighted to find some lovely welcome gifts left for us on the table. Thankyou Ian & Shirley. Being detached, it was perfect as our son has autism and has anxiety and behavioural challenges. April cottage was very enclosed and quiet, even the lovely courtyard garden was enclosed. We enjoyed the early morning walks with the dog over the dunes which are minutes away. We had lovely meals out at the Fishermans Return which is only a couple of minutes walk, also at the Hermanus resort ,The Highwayman. We spent 2 lovely days at Horsey Beach (which we drove to as it was a bit too far for us to walk to from Winterton) , swimming with the seals bobbing around near us. We spent a morning at Thrigby Hall Zoo which was brilliant both for adults and children. April Cottage was so comfortable and had everything you would need including washing machine & drier in the outhouse. Highly recommended.

  • We had a lovely stay at April cottage on 4th - 11th May 2019. The location is perfect for a nice walk around the village, you have hermanus and the local pub conveniently located. Winterton is the place we often go for the lovely long beach and dunes walks. The cottage is very well equipped and the welcome treats for your stay are very thoughtful. Many thanks, and would stay there again.

  • What a beautiful, cosy cottage April Cottage is. Equipped with everything you could possibly need. Loved the log burner and the extremely comfy beds. Would definitely recommend this cottage wholeheartedly. Winterton on Sea is one of my favourite places and we have stayed in several of the cottages on the website all are of a very high standard. We will definitely be back. Thank you for having us.

  • We have recently stayed at the delightful April Cottage. Beautifully homely, quaint and quirky - just what was required for a restful break. Loved the log burner. It’s very clean, well furnished and equipped. The beds were comfy with lovely bedding. Location is perfect for a quick walk into the village and conveniently located for the pub. Would stay there again.

  • Have just spent an amazing week at April Cottage. We have stayed in many many cottages over the last few years and when we leave we do our own personal rating out of 10. April Cottage goes far above 10 in every department, although we never met the owners Ian and Shirley we would say if we had, you have the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Thank you.

  • We have just returned from a 4 night break at April Cottage. This is a beautiful cottage and we felt at home from the minute we got there. Felt so lucky to be staying there. Dunes cafe is a must. Lovely food and situated by the beach. Fisherman’s Return lovely pub and food. This was our second booking with Winterton Cottages and we are looking forward to our third in August.

  • First time to this part of Norfolk. What a lovely unspoilt village. Great walks with a lovely beach. People are friendly and it's very much a dog friendly place. The cottage is beautifully kept with lovely touches. The pub is worth a visit. We hired a day boat on the broads which was well worth it on a bright day. Went to Strumpshaw Fen and watched the starling murmeration which was spectacular. Great stay - thank you for your lovely cottage.
