There has been a village at Winteringham since Roman times. It was then that it gained its current name, generally agreed to be ‘the place of Wintra’s people’. By the time of the Domesday Book, it was quite prosperous, with three mills, a fishery and a ferry. By the middle Ages, it had grown into a ‘town’ with its own Mayor and Corporation.

Many of Winteringham’s fields have specific names such as Otter Close, Nanny Willey, Kettle Bottoms and Puddingpoke. The existing house dates from the 16th century and all of the rooms are named after former owners, residents or local dignitaries.

The old beams, the sloping floors and sunny rooms speak of many centuries filled with happiness and laughter. We hope that this spirit remains and that each guest will share with us the enjoyment and very special atmosphere that Winteringham Fields offers today.

The ten individually designed luxury en suite rooms are named after former owners, residents or local dignitaries. The Lord Fitz Hugh room for instance recalls the nobleman who was ‘given’ the village of Winteringham back in the 14th Century by the King. It features a huge four-poster bed and an unexpected beamed bathroom. The Burkill Suite in the Courtyard has a spacious lounge, attractive bedroom and sumptuous bathroom.
