Property Details

Step inside The Cranny and you've found your perfect holiday cottage. This pretty property is all on one level, and has a fantastic location in the centre of the village - yet only five minutes walk from the beach. The cottage has been completely renovated and refurbished throughout by the current owners, to provide a high standard of accommodation.

The front door opens into the entrance hall, which leads through to a living room on the right with comfortable sofas and a smart TV. The round dining table has seating for five people, or you can dine al fresco in the wonderful private garden. The cottage has an unusual layout, with one bathroom leading off the living room which has a shower over the bath, WC and a washbasin.

Outside The Cranny is set within it's own cottage style garden - a private oasis in the middle of the village. It also has a shed which guests are welcome to use for storing bikes. There's off road parking for 1-2 cars, and the cottage also has wifi. Up to a maximum of two dogs are welcome at The Cranny.

  • Fabulous stay. Already booked again! Very friendly village. Beach and dunes 5 minutes walk away. Nice local walks and seals a-plenty at Horsey. Chippie superb. Even had decent weather. Well recommended with a very secure garden.

  • Having just returned from 'The Cranny' - Home from Home, one of a kind 'Round House' in private hands. It was great to not use the car as EVERTHING is right on the doorstep. Ideal base with a dog with the beach and sand dunes - all year round access. See you next year!! Thank you 'Winterton Cottages'

  • This is our third holiday in this lovely area of Norfolk and The Cranny is definitely the best cottage we have stayed in! It has a lovely garden and the cottage has everything you could possibly need. The beach is so close, a great dog friendly pub just round the corner and lots of lovely dog walks!

  • We have stayed in Winterton-on-Sea many times and the Cranny was a perfect place to stay, lovely cosy and well kept property and our dogs loved the garden...would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone

  • Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. Winterton is the perfect beach holiday. The Cranny is the perfect cottage.

  • Just returned from a week at the Cranny which was great. It's the second time we have stayed there and would definitely recommend it. The cottage is very nicely furnished and comfortable. It's well equipped, very well located with the beach just 5 mins away, and the pub, corner shop and Poppy's tea room 2 minutes away - what's not to like!

  • OMG what a fabulous place to stay, chocolate box perfect, extremely clean and modern inside. Cottage garden was a dream to sit in and enjoy the sunshine, so many beautiful flowers. Five minutes from the beach, Fish and Chip Shop fabulous, pub excellent, Poppys cafe to die for. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would definitely recommend. This is a 5* holiday accommodation.

  • Our family had a fantastic stay at the Cranny spending 2 days on a sailing boat on the Broads with Martham Boats and body boarding on your amazing beach and spotting fantastic wildlife (heron, water vole, seals, an adder, marsh harriers to name but a few). A perfect setting, garden, location and cottage itself, beautiful inside and out!

  • My husband, myself and our Cockapoo Pipkin stayed at the Cranny for 7 nights from 26th April and loved it. It was very well equipped, very comfortable clean and tidy. We loved the house and garden and would stay there again. The village was lovely and so close to the Dunes ideal for walkers so close to the Norfolk Coastal path and for Dog walkers. We enjoyed two meals in the local pub The Fishermans return both were lovely and good quality and value for money. They were also dog friendly which was great. Thank you for the bottle of Prosecco and the pint of milk both gratefully received. I would recommend this lovely cottage.

  • Booked a 4 night break at The Cranny for Dad's 80th birthday, they had a lovely time, it was even nicer than the photos in a great location and would definitely return, thank you.

    — Sharon Housden, 08 Apr 2019
  • A wonderful property. Very clean and cosy with top notch furnishings. A nice touch having a smart tv and wi fi. Was blessed with fantastic weather from the 22nd 29th Feb. Very dog friendly village. Nice local pub (Fisherman's return) serving decent food. Would definitely recommend the Winterton Fish n Chip shop. If you want to see seals, a walk through the dunes up to Horsey,is a must. Standing on the top of the dunes overlooking the beach, depending on what time of year, you will probably see them. Would definitely stay at the Cranny again.

  • We have just spent a lovely few days in the wonderful Cranny with our dog. The cottage has everything you could need and is furnished to a high standard.. The location is superb and the online booking was easy. It was our first time staying in Winterton but we intend to return again.

    — Ian & Janet, 26 Nov 2018
  • Thank you for a wonderful stay in The Cranny. Just a gorgeous cottage. Loved the gardens - especially as we sat out in shorts in the little sun trap in late October! Perfectly placed for all amenities. We love Winterton anyway! Had a relaxing week and look forward to staying again. Bliss.

    — Helen and Antony, 29 Oct 2018
  • We came across Winterton by mistake in the hot summer, what a lovely surprise, so much that when we got home we decided that we would like to spend our 50th Wedding Anniversary there. We saw that The Cranny was available for the exact week that we required.
    What a wonderful surprise when we arrived. The Cranny is in a good location, lovely place, secluded garden ideal for our Toy Poodle (Teddy) Good parking. A lot of thought has been given to all requirements in The Cranny, very beautiful cottage.
    Winterton itself is a lovely and pretty place, with a lot of history to it. Some great eating places, i.e The Dunes cafe. Local fish and chips shop. The Fisherman's Return. The village store and Post office well stocked with requirements. Great walks to see the wildlife and lots of interesting places to visit.
    We had a wonderful time wish we were still there. We will certainly return next year to The Cranny and would recommend it.
    Thank you for a lovely stay and for the Prosecco.

  • Had a fantastic week 14th to 21st September. Fabulous cottage, perfect. Marvellously situated, pub nearby with good food and the Highwayman at Hermanus next door served the best Sunday Lunch we have had for a long time. Had a couple of evening meals there. With shops for essentials a short walk and a host of interesting sites within a short drive it made for a great week. So good that as soon as we returned my wife said she wished to return again next year, which we will be doing.

    — Clive Buckley, 28 Sep 2018
  • Beautiful cottage set in the heart of the village close to an excellent beach and pub restaurant. Excellent garden for children and dogs. Would definitely return.

    — John Riley, 05 Sep 2018

  • We stayed at The Cranny 14th-18th May. A very pretty, cosy and comfortable cottage. Well positioned to visit the local beaches plus Winterton beach five minutes walk away. The Dunes cafe makes an excellent cuppa and the pub just over the road has a good selection of generous sized meals and beer. A very enjoyable stay.

    — Jane Rawlins, 23 May 2018
  • What a smashing cottage and surrounding area! Five minutes to the beach - we loved it.

    — Mr & Mrs Bullot, 18 Feb 2018
  • I have recently stayed at The Cranny with a group of my friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was spotless and very clean which made our stay even better. We were able to cook in some nights as it also provides a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed a complimentary bottle of Prosecco from the owners in the evening with an amazing entertainment system on the TV. Very short walk away from the beach and the local pub which is a stone throw away from the cranny serves lovely food. Will definitely recommend staying here if you want a get away in the UK.

    — Lavinia , 08 Jan 2018
  • We have just come back from a weekend away at the Cranny and we want to go back already! It was in a really good location, very close to the beach and a local restaurant/pub. The Cranny provides everything we needed and it was decorated really nicely and was very clean! Also, there was a smart TV which came in very handy for the evenings in. We were very impressed at the added touch of the owners leaving us a bottle of wine out! Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

    — Katie, 07 Jan 2018
  • We had a lovely time. The cottage was perfect and spotlessly clean. Our friends own a cottage in the village so we were really close which was great. Winterton is a lovely place to stay especially the walks along the beach and all those seals and seal pups.

    — K Low, 04 Jan 2018
  • Ideal base for seal watching and catching up with our family in Norfolk. Recommend Dunes Cafe for breakfast and Hermanus for carvery/veggie version Sunday lunch. Thank you!

    — T Turner, 18 Dec 2017
  • What a gem of a cottage! Tastefully furnished & decorated with everything you could need & a lovely enclosed garden in a quiet location.
    A nearby pub accepts dogs & does a good range of vegetarian meals, not to mention that the staff are absolutely lovely. The beach is a 10 minute walk away. Highly recommend.

    — Sharon Fisher, 18 Oct 2017
  • I took my Mum to Norfolk to visit some old neighbours and we stayed here for the weekend. It is in a perfect location so close to the beach and the local Pub! The cottage itself is lovely with two good sized bedrooms (one ensuite) and a generous kitchen and living room with plenty of outside space. All mod cons are there yet it is full of character, we had a lovely time and didn't want to leave! Thoroughly recommended.
