Wells-next-the-Sea is a popular town on the Norfolk Coast. The picturesque harbour and estuary are a continuous hub of activity and a photographer’s dream location.  With fresh fish, lobsters, crabs and shellfish landed every day, it is easy to see why so many visitors enjoy fish and chips on the Quay; it is practically a Wells ritual! Take a stroll to the beach along the harbour footpath or hop aboard the narrow-gauge steam railway, where you are rewarded with views of colourful beach huts decorating the vast sands elevated against a woodland backdrop. From Buttlands Green to the Quay, you can search out plenty of local pubs and restaurants, delicatessens, butchers, fishmongers, boutique shops, cycle hire, and you can even take a llama for a guided walk. The unspoiled coastal scenery surrounding Wells-next-the-Sea is a haven for walkers, cyclists, bird/wildlife enthusiasts, photographers, sailors and anglers and seafarers young and old will delight in taking a seal trip run from the harbour.   There is also much to explore beyond. A 5-minute drive away is Holkham Hall, seat of the Earl of Leicester, which has a stunning house and deer park to visit, and which also hosts numerous events throughout the year. Holkham beach can be reached along the shoreline from Wells-next-the-Sea, as well as by road and is the chosen beach of the Household Cavalry who can be seen galloping along whilst taking a well-earned break in the summer. Other delights nearby are Burnham Market and its sister villages, Brancaster, Blakeney, Cley-next-the-Sea and the Georgian town of Holt to name just a few. The area is bursting to the brim with places to visit and things to see, we think it will capture your heart.



This was our ninth visit to this property and we have found that the standard of cleanliness has been first rate. We found that the property is situated just a short walk from the centre of town and the all important arcade for the kids. Sad that the train will not be running after September and will have to walk both ways to the beach but overall I am still looking forward to next year already and only got home yesterday.

Mr M,

Great location, handy for walking around Wells or down to the beach. Spacious, well-appointed and well-equipped accommodation. First floor lounge/dining/kitchen space was a pleasure to spend time in. Plenty of bathroom / toilet facilities. Garage + enough room for parking additional car within back yard was also a big plus. We would happily stay there again.

Mrs B,

Excellent accommodation. Very well furnished and very comfortable.
