Guestbook comments from the owner

starWe have just enjoyed a wonderful stay at Compass Cottage, 5 mins from dunes and gorgeous Winterton beach and 30 seconds from the fabulous pub! The cottage has everything you could hope for and more with a lovely complimentary goodie bags and fluffy dressing gowns to wear for the stay, and every other thing to make it an amazing home from home. Great location too, we enjoyed crabbing at Walberswick and lovely days at Southwold, Thetford Forest and Dinosaur Adventure! Great fish and chip shop in the village too we will be back!

Super cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent Easter at Compass Cottage and despite the weather had a fantastic time. The cottage is in a wonderful location, opposite a welcoming pub and minutes from the sand dunes. It has everything you need, including games and puzzles and is well equipped. Beautifully clean. Would definitely book this cottage again.

Christmas idyll

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing Christmas in this wonderful cottage. The welcome pack was very tasty and a nice touch to welcome us. The cottage is very well equipped and we wanted for nothing. The position of the cottage couldn’t be better, being in the centre of the village and just opposite the pub! Highly recommended!

A charming cottage, beautifully presented and well equipped for a family of 4.

  • 5 of 5

We have had a wonderful week staying in Compass Cottage. The cottage itself is lovely - a perfect size for a family of 4 and well equipped. The en-suite in the double room was an added bonus, and we found everything very comfortable. We will definitely be returning to stay at Compass Cottage soon!

excellent

  • 5 of 5

On arriving we were so impressed by the cleanliness and the homely feeling of the property the situation was ideal as it was close to the beach dunes and coastal path. We enjoyed our stay very much and would not hesitate to book again at this beautiful cottage.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for one week with our dogs. We all had a great time in Winterton and rest of Norfolk. Great location to walk the dogs on the sand dunes or the beach. Although you have to pay to use the car park. The cottage was near to the pub and not too far to walk to the chip shop or shop.

Cottage garden fully enclosed, although a little small.

This is the 2nd time we have stayed at the owners property and would thoroughly recommend. Will need to book early.
