  • We stayed over New year and had a lovely week in this cosy cottage. It was nice to arrive to a warm house with a Christmas tree and a welcome basket of treats. The kitchen, although quite small is well stocked and it was nice to have a separate dining room. The garden was perfect for our spaniel. It's location was good for walks onto the dunes/beach and the shop and pub. We would definitely stay again.

  • Wonderful stay at Ketch Cottage, well equipped kitchen ,comfortable furnishings. Lovely quiet location within 5 mins of the sand dunes and the beach, ideal for our dogs. Lovely to see the seals swimming in the sea at Winterton and we walked to Horsey Gap to see the seal colony.

  • Great holiday last week staying in Ketch Cottage. Lovely holiday & a perfect location for everything Winterton-on-Sea. Cosy cottage ideal for dogs with its enclosed garden. We will definitely be coming back to Winterton-on-Sea in the near future.

  • Excellent cottage for my wife and I and our Collie. Very well positioned. Pleasantly furnished and with all the bits that one might need. Good back garden meant that we were able to sit outside well sheltered from the cold north easterly which kept temperatures below 15 degrees all week! Hoping to return next year and beyond. (Tip - if you want to use the fish and chip shop phone your order in advance. Their system works well!)

    — Richard Gerlach, 12 Jun 2023
  • Another excellent stay at Ketch, the owner kindly with prior arrangement allowed us a slightly earlier check in given the weather and housekeeping being complete. Cottage lovely & warm, plenty of hot water and cosy, given the minus temperatures it was needed :)

  • Had a lovely comfortable week in September at Ketch Cottage. Cottage had everything you needed and was very well equipped. The garden was very secure for Spud our dog who loved it. Conveniently situated in centre of village, short walk to dunes and beach and ideal for lovely meal at Fishermans Return. Have already booked again for next year. Milk and biscuits much appreciated too. Thank you

  • This cottage is in a Beautiful location, quiet and has a lovely outlook onto a grass area. Parking for several cars making it safe and secure. Well equipped cottage, warm & homely. The cleanliness is pretty good too, which is quite rare of late! The garden is very secure - there is no way a dog could escape - we have an escape artist so this is a high priority for us! Loved our stay - we have re booked!

  • Spent a lovely week staying in Ketch Cottage. The house was warm, comfortable and well equipped. I liked that a list was provided stating items like washing up liquid and hand soap were provided. Winterton is a lovely village with easy access to the beach and sand dunes. We walked along the coast path to Hemsby one day and also did the circular walk out via the church ruins at Somerton. We had dinner in The Fishermans Return one evening which was very enjoyable and also used the chip shop and local shop. Will definitely return to Winterton.

    — Carol and Ed, 03 Oct 2020

  • Very comfortable & cosy cottage,enclosed garden. 5min walk to the beach and sand dunes. Fish shop near by or go to the dog friendly pub ( food very good) just over the road. Being to Ketch cottage quite a few times now. Back again next year.

    — Rita. & Malcolm + Max, 18 Jun 2019
  • Arrived Easter weekend for a week. Went to the beach 2/3 times a day, as the weather was so good. The cottage was very comfortable and a lovely place to come home to. Went to Hemsby and the café on the beach was dog friendly, which for me being on my own, was a bonus. Dunes Café at Winterton do not allow dogs*, so could not say what it is like, as I would not leave my dog outside on its own. When I saw that thatcher's were next door, I thought it would be a problem. But the lads were very considerate, polite and friendly. Will be coming again.

    * owner's comment - the Dunes cafe does have seating outside where you can sit with dogs, and also beach huts for people to sit in with their dogs in case of bad weather.

    — Susan Westwood, 29 Apr 2019
  • What a great cosy cottage. Clean and comfy beds. We visited in March so weather was not kind enough to allow to sit in garden but imagine in summer it lovely. Loved the log burner. Will definitely visit this cottage again.

    — Sue & Vince, 25 Mar 2019
