    • “There were 5 adults and 2 children in our group. This bungalow was amazingly spacious but very homely, on a quiet street in a lovely village. 5 minutes walk to the beach and within easy reach of the other coastal spots, the broads as well. We all enjoyed it”

    • “Superb Holiday accommodation”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Rose Bay Cottage offers a superb holiday accommodation. It is decorated and equiped to a very high standard, offering a home from home feel. It is large and spacious and can accommodate a family or group of people upto 11 with no problem. There is also ample off road parking and is situated in the idyllic village of Winterton on Sea, which is approximately 8 miles from Great Yarmouth and other seaside resorts. The cottage is approximately 2mins walk from the local corner shop/post office and fabulous fish & chip shop, and is about 5/10mins walk from the beach. All in all, Rose Bay Cottage offers a fantastic holiday retreat. My family and I had a fabulous time and we have already booked to go back again next year.”

    • “Perfect setting for a relaxing and enjoyable family holiday, Furniture fixtures and fittings were all a1. Thought long and hard about something to complain about but the only thing I can think of is the lack of a barbecue (We bought one & left it for others to enjoy).”

    • “Really lovely holiday”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “This is a really lovely cottage in a great location. I would recommend it to anybody. I would give it 5 stars only a few tiny things stopped me. Firstly there is no blind in the top bedroom so we had to try and hang a towel on a roof window every night which was a bit annoying. Also there weren't really enough single beds for our family. We were travelling with extended family and while yes there is sleeping space for 11 there were only 3 single beds so it meant some children had to share beds and 1 of the adults had to share a double with a child which means they didn't sleep very well. Also no wifi which is only a minor problem but it would've been nice considering the cost of the rental. These were only minor issues and everything else was really lovely. Especially the location, walking distance to a lovely beach. Had a really lovely time.”

    • “very enjoyable”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is stunning. The only negative I have about my stay is the fact that the boiler is installed in one of the ground floor bedrooms. It is not practical or healthy as there was water continually leaking from the boiler (my husband had to put a bucket in there) We did tell the landlord so I assume that problem will have been dealt with now. There is a premanent smell of oil coming from that cupboard and if you are sleeping in that room it becomes quite nauseous.”

    Mr Holliday, Birmingham, August 2014

    • “The property was excellent and surrounding area just as stunning. If you want a quiet and peaceful stay then this is just the place. The people were so friendly, I would recommend it to anyone!”

    Mrs Andrews, Rainham, June 2014

    • “Rose Bay is a beautifully decorated and positoned holiday bungalow with a fantastic lounge and conservatory. The kitchen is very well equipped and you can choose whether to eat in the dining room, lounge, conservatory or patio as they all have dining tables & chairs! The bedrooms are all individually decorated to a high standard and plenty of towels are provided. The location is very near to the beach, local shop & chippy which is well worth a visit. The beach is a long stretch of sand and dunes with no distractions other than a cafe.”

    Mrs Fox, Sheffield, June 2014

    • “Great size property, plenty of room. Beach was within easy walking distance as was the pub and local shop. The village church was attended on Christmas Eve by members of the party and were made to feel welcome. Great walks along the beach to see the seal colony.”
