Dog friendliness: 10/10
Awesome! Lots of beach and acres of dunes for running and sniffing. No restrictions all year round.
Really good for reactive dogs as you can stay well away from other dogs as there is SO much room on the beach and the miles of dunes. Some great circular walks inland too from here.
Restrictions: There is a tern nesting colony in the summer and seals breeding on the beach in the winter but these are signposted when applicable.
Access: Easy, slight sandy slope to beach and level access to dunes area.
Facilities: Large privately owned car park – pay and display but not expensive.
Dog friendly pub The Fishermans Return and fish and chip shop in the village – both an easy walk. Public and disabled toilet. Great village shop and post office which also has a little dog friendly cafe – Poppys – attached and sells take away cakes and coffee too. There are now also American airstream trailers on the beach car park selling hot and cold drinks and some really good, interesting food. Outside seating available. The Edge
It’s a short drive from St Benets and it’s well worth the drive from any of the properties.
What the locals know: Just how fabulous Winterton beach is! When the tide is high, no need to turn for home as you can walk north or south along the dunes – meandering through a maze of paths. The area of dunes to the south of the car park is know as the Valley and takes you past some funny little ‘Hobbit’ houses which are part of the Hermanus holiday camp (which also has a dog friendly restaurant).
