Wells-next-the-Sea is a lively coastal town on the north Norfolk coast. With its fine, sandy beach, iconic beach huts and bordered by pine woodlands, it offers a playground for young and old alike, there is even a small gauge railway that will take you down to the beach if you don’t fancy the stroll. At the harbour you can see the small fishing fleet unload its daily catch and the quayside is also popular with children, fishing for crabs. There is an eclectic variety of boutique shops, cafés, pubs and tea rooms to browse, with not a chain store in sight and The Buttlands is a lovely part of the town with a tree-lined Green, fine Georgian houses, pubs and restaurant. Fishing trips, sailing, tennis, a swimming pool and fitness centre and the Wells to Walsingham Light Railway are all within easy reach and for something totally unique, why not take an Alpaca for a walk across the marshes! Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with the North Norfolk Coastal path running directly through the town, you may not wish to wander far. If you do, other delights near to hand include Holkham Hall and Estate, Burnham Market and its sister villages and gorgeous coastal villages such as Brancaster, Cley-next-the-Sea and Stiffkey, to name just a few.


Thoroughly enjoyable stay in the cottage. Plenty to do around Wells. Plenty of places to eat, if you want to try The Crab House - book early

Christopher L,

We really enjoyed our stay in this cosy cottage. Very warm and comfortable and a great location for the coastal path (great for morning/evening running) and the shops. We really enjoyed all the beaches and searching for mammoths at West Runton and catching fallen leaves at Holkham Hall. So much to do around here - we could have stayed for two weeks !

Jenny M,
