Winterton Ness is an area of foreland on the North Norfolk coast of England.

Winterton Ness is located to the north of the village of Winterton-on-Sea between grid reference TG489216 in the north to TG506181 to its south.[1] Technically it is a narrow cuspate foreland with a high obtuse angle between its two shorelines. A number of studies appear inconclusive as to the nature if erosion or, conversely, accretion of sediment in the area.

The area was described by Daniel Defoe[2] during the first of his trips for his account A tour thro' the Whole Island of Great Britain.
