About Winterton Valley and surrounding areas

The village of Winterton-on-Sea is situated 25 miles from Norwich and about ten miles north of Great Yarmouth. The Norfolk Broads with their many miles of waterways, are just two miles away at West-Somerton. The pretty village of Winterton-on-Sea is a very quiet place with a village store, post office and an excellent pub, serving delicious home cooked meals and where families are most welcome.

Our privately owned chalet is a 10 minutes walk from the village. It has its own access to a broad expanse of dunes and uncrowded sandy beach where nature-lovers can walk for many miles - if you are lucky you may even spot seals swimming close to shore or sunning themselves on the sands.

Winterton Valley has a real feeling of space, with all the chalets placed to get maximum light and sun. It is very peaceful, whilst those seeking traditional seaside fare, will find the resort of Hemsby just a mile or so walk along the dunes, or you can drive to Great Yarmouth with its bright lights, fun-fare and shows.

    The chalet park has its own private access to miView across the chalet park to the seales of delightful sandy beach and dunes and it's perfect for those with young children, cycling or on foot as there are no roads to cross. Additionally, a leisurely 10 minute walk along the dunes or via a quiet track will bring you to the village.

    Winterton-on-sea has a small post-office, a well equipped general stores, Norfolk Beach at low tides, wet fish supplies (great for Cromer crab!) and a fish'n'chip shop. No trip to the village would be complete without a visit to the 300 year old Fisherman's return. Here you will find excellent food and a range of Norfolk beers with names like 'old nog' or 'great eastern'; and where children are welcome and there is a large garden to the rear.

  • Hemsby

    Lying a mile or so along the dunes you'll find Hemsby, a typical English seaside haunt with the kind of amusements and entertainment you'd expect to find at a small English seaside town.


    Inland from the beach resort you'll find a spar shop and the nearest chemist. Those looking for the bright lights and seaside shows should head along the coast to the market town of Great Yarmouth with its golden mile, Marina, Pleasure Beach and Sea Life Centre.

    For a more leisurely pastime, you might like to take a boat trip or even hire your own boat from the many boat yards scattered between Potter Heigham and Stalham. Latham's store in Potter Heigham sells just about everything imaginable and is situated in the heart of the Broads.
