Property code: OC-1979

Escape with your loved ones to this beautiful flint-and-brick holiday home in the picturesque port town of Wells-next-the-Sea. Sleeping four people across two inviting bedrooms, this lovely cottage offers a great escape for small families or groups of friends who want to spend quality time together on the stunning Norfolk coast. See seagulls soaring overhead and colourful fishing boats bobbing in the bay when you spend the day discovering Wells Harbour; and in the evening, come home to the cottage’s pretty garden to dine alfresco and wait for the stars to come out.

Step inside this stylish cottage and you’ll be welcomed by the spacious, well-lit living area bathed in a gentle colour palette of coastal hues. Make yourself at home in this inviting area before heading to the sleek, contemporary open-plan kitchen/diner to channel your inner-chef and cook up a storm for your loved ones. Get everyone together at the dining table to eat, or head out to the lovely courtyard garden to dine alfresco. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of wine and watch the stars come out, or head back into the living area to stretch out on a sofa and unwind in front of the TV. At the end of the day, climb the stairs and you’ll find two cosy bedrooms to choose from.

Pull on your walking shoes and go for a beautiful stroll at Stiffkey Saltmarshes (4 miles). Soak up the serenity of the landscape and keep your eyes peeled for curlews and brent geese. Alternatively, make your way to the historic Wells and Walsingham Light Railway (1 mile) to ride a little steam train through the picturesque Norfolk countryside.

This cottage was an excellent find. It's a lovely house, located close to the sea-front. The shops, pubs and restaurants were all easily within walking distance. I would happily book it again.

Samphire Cottage is beautiful and ideally situated to the quay at Wells. Very comfortable, very clean and fully equipped. I would definitely re-book the same accommodation and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family. Although I would rather keep this a secret.

Everything was excellent. Only issue is that the off road parking is very difficult and not appropriate for anything bigger than a small Car as it is enclosed by a low wall and shared with another property so manoeuvering is very difficult

The double bed was a little on the hard side. Outside furniture could do with updating, and a basic welcome pack of tea, coffee and milk would have been appreciated along with a welcome book of instructions and local information.
