Chalet Bungalow With Superb Sea Views And Private Access To Beach
Eastview is in the village of winterton-on-sea arguably the prettiest old fishing village on the Norfolk east coast.Just 5 minutes walk from the village centre it has been completely reconstructed and modernised within the last three years. A new German design central heating system was installed in October last year providing controlled heating to each room. At the end of a culdesac with a gate to the path to the village it is quiet and only has traffic from residents of bush road and delivery vehicles. The dunes, beach and sea are just below and from the rear garden you view them from a commanding position.
The garden has been completely redesigned to include mainly grass and boarders with roses and a few fruit trees to separate the grassed area from the patio. You are separated from your immediate neighbours by fences and hedges so that you are completely secluded without destroying your views. Your neighbours are quiet and private people not interfering in any way. You can sit on the patio enjoying your barbecue and the views without interference.
The Winterton parish church has the second highest tower in the county, it is said by 'one herring' from its rival Cromer. An access gate,next door to the old light house, as featured on TV, will take you to the village centre. The light house is now a private house but it can still be seen for miles. Its owners visit rarely so it does not feature lights shinning out to sea. The top appears to be a viewing gallery.
Walking down the steps from the garden you are immediately on the dunes some 200 yds from the beach. This is triple SI territory and they are full of wild life if you can spot it. Mostly rabbits,foxes, deer and many others types. There are rare birds amongst which are the marsh harrier and on the beach the little tern. Both protected and watched over by rangers.
Winterton is a dogs paradise, there are no restrictions on their freedom and they can run for miles. Discipline is only required in consideration of other visitors and to make sure that they don't attack the wild life. In the winter the seals come ashore to have their pups and each year the numbers increase, 500 plus pups this year. Certainly a sight to be seen. Dogs on leads please near the seals and pups. This period is from November until February.
Our local pub is well known throughout the County and provides good food and pleasant company.We have a post office, two shops for general goods and a fish and chip shop.
The front garden at Eastview is laid to grass with a parking area of concrete and gravel. It is surrounded by trees and a border bed given over to shrubs and roses.
Walks in and around the village are excellent and can be from 2 miles to 15, depending on your inclination and fitness. One has been recently chosen as the 7th. best in the country. You have easy access to the broads and fishing, golf, riding, all within a short distance. Fancy a day's racing then great Yarmouth has an excellent course? A day out in superb Norwich with its medieval streets and cathedral. The 'Time and Tide' museum in Great Yarmouth is internationally famous and has won many awards. A must in my view if the weather is inclement.
By providing a wood burning stove, for those who like it, you can be snug and warm on a winters evening by the fire. The insulation in the chalet is excellent so few if any draughts and the heat remains in the building. In the fall you can witness the superb flight of many water birds flying in formation to their feeding grounds. The logo on our literature features this.
We in the village are restoring our old life boat and starting to build a reconstruction of its old shed, this is behind the toilet block near the café. It will be open to the public. There is always lots to do in the village. Local events include parades, church fetes, open gardens, but you may prefer to remain at Eastview in the garden relaxing and watching the ships go.
