This is a circular walk of two halves, with the first half taking you along solid tracks through houses and along rural landscapes, whilst the second half, by way of contrast, takes you through the Winterton Dunes Nature Reserve, where you have the option of either staying on the path, keeping away from the dunes, or following one of the various tracks amongst the dunes to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. This is a Nature Reserve though, and a word of warning, you may spot adders, which are a protected species. If you start at the car park take a quick glance out to sea to spot the Blood Hill wind turbines. These were amongst the first to be installed in this country and have been operating for over twenty years. Allow at least a couple of hours for the walk. There are toilets and a cafe at the car park.

lived in Winterton as a child so regularly did this walk, winter season is great as you're greeted by seals along the coastal part of the walk, all the way from winterton to somerton gap, you also have the opportunity to walk by the witches tree which has lots of superstition and history surrounding it. definitely the best way to see the full beauty of what Winterton On sea has to offer.
