Wells-next-the-Sea is a hub for North Norfolk coastal activities. The picturesque harbour leads onto the most spectacular beach beyond the lifeboat shed, which can be accessed by walking or taking the narrow-gauge railway or car. The town has many old buildings, along with a traditional main street with all sorts of small shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants.  The beautiful coast is a top destination for bird watchers and seal trip excursions, not forgetting catching crabs, the local favourite activity. With the spectacular country estates of Sandringham, Holkham and Blickling just a short drive away, Wells provides year round enjoyment for all ages.

It was our first time in Norfolk - We'll come back! We had a really wonderful seaside break in a very well equipped and spacious cottage.
