A quaint spot on the coast, the village boasts an historical parish church, All Saints, which has one of the tallest towers in the county with parts of the building dating back to the 13th century. Other amenities include a shop, Post Office and Winterton Fish Bar.
The expansive beach is a crowning glory for Winterton; the sandy stretch is backed by sand dunes, a Site of Special Scientific Interest filled with a variety of fauna that continues all the way north to Horsey.
The area is also infamous for its colony of grey seals. They can often be seen along the beach, bobbing in the sea, and in December and January put on quite the display when they come out of the water for weeks on end and have their pups. With around 100 pups born every winter, it can be a big attraction for visitors to the area to witness the memorable occasion.
Black hut on the beach
The beach has its own little stop off, Dunes Café, where you can escape the winds of winter or enjoy a refreshing drink in the summer. Choose from a range of food throughout the day, including a full English breakfast and selection of sandwiches, and for those with a more particular dietary requirement they also cater for gluten intolerance and vegetarians, as well as smaller dishes for children.

The cute individual beach huts also on the decking mean you can sit in shelter with your four-legged friends no matter what the weather.
Dating back 300 years, the Fishermans Return is a popular spot in the village with locals and tourists alike. Priding itself on the local ingredients used in the dishes, there is an ever-changing specials menu and an extensive drinks list.
Great Yarmouth is within easy reach of Winterton-on-Sea, featuring even more tourist attractions and seaside fun, including amusements, The Pleasure Beach funfair, and the Sea Life Centre.
Slightly further afield is the beautiful city of Norwich, with its picturesque riverside walks, abundance of shops, cathedral and variety of events throughout the year.
