“This is our second stay at Ruby Gem and the new owners have made some lovely improvements – we particularly appreciated the home made cakes and jam! Our dog, Ella, has loved her twice daily walks to the dunes and we loved the doggie touches round the house.”
A jewel of a cottage right in the village but a short walk to the beach!
The village location of this gem of a cottage means you can be at the dog friendly pub – The Fisherman’s Return – in moments or the chippy or the dog friendly cafes (the Dunes Cafe is our favourite, right on the beach but Poppys is great too!) and, most importantly, on the dog friendly beach in minutes! (see more about wonderful Winterton beach and dunes on the beaches page of the website!) Miles of easy walks on the sandy beach and the dunes are right there for you and your dogs. Pretty much the perfect dog friendly Norfolk holiday cottage!
Many people leave the car for their whole holiday and do a different walk on the dunes, beach and the quiet countryside inland each day. Have a look at this great little booklet of walks to give you ideas. but if you want to explore you can go down to Great Yarmouth and have a seaside day out, kiss me quick style, with the funfair, arcades, chippies, pier and crazy golf!

“Our dog, Ella, has loved her twice daily walks to the dunes and we loved the doggie touches round the house. Food wise recommend Poppys, the chip shop and Dabs and Crabs, fresh seafood”
“Lou lou our dog loved the beach again. Will visit again.”
“Great cottage in a great location. Having parking is a big plus and a secure garden (for the dog)”
“We came away very much in need of a rest, and Ruby Gem has been perfect for us. The house is beautiful and so nicely presented, and in such a great location. we’ve walked down to the beach every day! The Dunes Cafe on the beach does delicious hot and cold sandwiches and very naughty cakes!
Location & Directions
How To Find Us:
King Street, Winterton on Sea, NR29 4AU
Enter the village on Black Street with the church to your left. Turn left down The Lane or The Loke and you will come to King Street, turn left and the cottage is down there on the left. You’ve gone too far if you get to the village hall. Alternatively you can enter the village along The Craft and then onto King Street and when you get to the turning to The Loke (the pub is visible on the left) stay on King Street and the cottage is a little further on the left.
"This is our second stay at Ruby Gem and the new owners have made some lovely improvements - we particularly appreciated the home made cakes and jam! We had various day trips at this stay and if you have children with you (ours are 7 and 9) we would recommend the Mega Maze at Hemsby, Bewilderwood and Wroxham Barns. We had fun on the penny slot machines at Great Yarmouth but our favourite day was a lovely sunny day here on the beach at Winterton. Our dog, Ella, has loved her twice daily walks to the dunes and we loved the doggie touches round the house. Food wise recommend Poppys, the chip shop and Dabs and Crabs, fresh seafood"
"We came away very much in need of a rest, and Ruby Gem has been perfect for us. The house is beautiful and so nicely presented, and in such a great location. we've walked down to the beach every day! The Dunes Cafe on the beach does delicious hot and cold sandwiches and very naughty cakes! We would definitely recommend having a bite to eat at Poppylands in Horsey; a gorgeous 40s themed tea room. We also ate at Nelson's Head (horsey) which was great food too. Horsey beach has not disappointed us for seal-spotting either - we've seen lots, and they came quite close. We're going home feeling happy and well-rested, and would love to come here again!"
