 TheSmiths at Winterton on sea

This summer, we rented a large house in Winterton on sea. Winterton was chosen as being 'mutually inconvenient' for all with the level of inconvenience being inversely proportional to the number of children. The house, Rose Bay suited us well as we wanted somewhere in walking distance of the beach and large enough to accommodate us under one roof with catering and dining facilities large enough for us to eat together en-famille.

Our party consisted of: Ben and Becky with daughters Maya and Janey, Matt and Tam with daughter Lana, Katy and Ant for the weekend and Rosemary's brother Nick, partner Amanda and Amanda's mother Joan commuting from Lowestoft to join us for a couple of days.
