Wells-next-the-Sea is a popular town on the Norfolk Coast. Enjoy a spot of crabbing by the picturesque harbour and with fresh shellfish available you can enjoy the catch of the day or Fish and Chips on the Quay. Take a stroll to the beach along the harbour footpath or hop aboard the narrow-gauge steam railway where you’re rewarded with views of colourful beach huts decorating the vast sands elevated against a woodland backdrop. From the Buttlands to the Quay you'll find plenty of local pubs and restaurants to savour as well as delicatessens, butchers, fishmonger and boutique shops, which can be found nestled amongst the pretty lanes. With so many wonderful places to visit nearby why not take a short drive to the current home of the Earl of Leicester, Holkham Hall, which hosts numerous events throughout the year. Holkham beach can be reached along the shoreline from Wells-next-the-Sea and is the chosen beach of the ‘Household Cavalry’ who can be seen galloping along whilst taking a well-earned break in the summer. The unspoiled coastal scenery surrounding Wells-next-the-Sea are a haven for walkers, cyclists, bird/wildlife enthusiasts, photographers, sailors and anglers. Take seal watching boat trips or explore on hired cycles with ‘On Yer Bike’ cycle hire close-by. 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


Very well appointed house. Beautifully maintained. Gorgeous location

Mr V,

Stunning property, in the perfect location. Kept so clean, everything looks brand new! Furniture and decor lovely and of good quality, quite quirky, old and new. Very cosy and relaxing, really feel like we’ve had a good break. Lots to do around us, and many very dog friendly places to visit. The welcome pack and other bits (tea/coffee/sugar/milk/logs/loo roll/cleaning bits) made the stay and us feel very special, it’s very thoughtful, and a great start to the break after a long drive. Plenty of free parking nearby. Would definitely return/recommend. Only thing we wished for, was an extra hour/later departure, but that itself doesn’t put us off.

mrs R,

Lovely modern but still traditional cottage in Central Wells on Sea. Plenty of room to relax and unwind and near to shops and pubs/restaurants. Ideal for a break away

Mrs M,

Beautifully renovated property to a very high standard. Modern comforts but with all its original character.

Mr F,

We can highly recommend this property. The location was very convenient for everything- shops, pubs, cafes, harbour and beach. It was spotlessly clean and we loved the quirky original features of this newly refurbished cottage. The welcome pack was an added bonus.

Mrs B,
