About Winterton-on-Sea

When Daniel Defoe visited this quaint coastal village in the year 1725, he famously wrote that almost half the houses in the village where built of timber taken from wrecks. He could well have been right, for this is a coastline that has seen some turbulent seas and over the centuries many ships have lost in the howling gales that have lashed these shores. Today, the sea continues to give up it's treasures and fragments of wrecks can regularly be found on the sands.

Winterton-on-Sea is a spacious village with a miss-match of quaint cottages and houses strewn along neat grass verged lanes. Charming, half timbered cottages with dormer windows hiding under thickly thatched roofs vie for position with handsome buildings of reddish brick and tile. The village's 300 year old pub is built of brick and flint, and the sign pronouncing that you are indeed in Winterton, is charmingly reminiscent of a Constable painting. The parish church dates 12th-century, it was built by the Monks at St.Benets Abbey, it stands close to the entrance to Winterton and has a magnificent tower that soars 132ft high. The interior of the church has a corner dedicated to all those lost at sea.

The area to the north of the beautiful golden sandy beach consists of high, grassed, sand-dunes and is a designated Nature Reserve. Many nature lovers descend here for the position of the dunes make it ideal for bird watching. The sea road takes you down to a wide golden beach from which it is possible to launch boats at any time and the sea is often thronged with gaily coloured fishing craft and yachts.

Winterton is fortunate to enjoy a favoured position on a magnificent stretch of coastline and to be amid some of the finest countryside scenery in Norfolk. There are many attractive villages to explore and at nearby Horsey you can see the Horsey Windpump owned by the National Trust. For those who seek a more lively time, all the attractions of Great Yarmouth are but a few short miles away
