Although there is no designated off-street parking, there are no parking restrictions on The Buttlands and it is usually possible to park outside. It is just a few steps to the renowned Crown Hotel and also The Globe Inn. This is a fantastic location right in the heart of Wells within walking distance of numerous shops and the quay.


With its big blue skies and sandy beach, Wells award-winning beach is a popular family destination about a mile from the quay. It's well known for its long stretch of sand, iconic row of beach huts, sand dunes and pine woods.


It's a delightful unspoilt historic town on the North Norfolk Coast with a jumble of old buildings and lanes still existing from its heritage as a port and former maltings industry. The picturesque quay and waterfront is still very much a working port with fishing boats still berthed in this small harbour and stalls selling locally caught shrimps, crabs and whelks. A popular place with sailors with many sailing and leisure craft here and local sailing tuition available. A distinctive landmark on the quay is the granary building with its overhanging gantry. Children enjoy the facilities round the quay and the challenge of crabbing (gillying) from the steep harbour wall.

The main shopping area of Wells is Staithe Street, a narrow, mostly pedestrianised lane with surviving Victorian and Edwardian shop fronts, that runs from the water's edge right up to the top part of town. In the centre of the town is The Buttlands which is a large rectangular green lined with Georgian and late Victorian houses, which used to be used for archery practise in mediaeval days. Now it is home to the excellent Crown hotel and restaurant which is run by Kiwi celebrity chef Chris Coubrough, as well as the popular The Globe Inn.

The quay has become one of the North Norfolk’s most popular and well-loved seaside destinations with a great selection of shops, galleries and places to eat, including the award winning French's fish & chips.


The name derives from the spring water which rises up through the chalk area. Guella is the name given in the doomsday book and later derived from Wella meaning spring. The supply of corn and grain was the main trade for the town of Wells, its seaport dates back to the fourteenth century. Wells was also known for the supply of malt, the town boasted to have up to twelve maltings and in 1750 this equated to a third of the exports of malt from the country. Wells port widely relies on the tides to gain access to the harbour as there is not a river running through it. Between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries its mariners were the first to bring herring and cod in large quantities from Iceland.


Only a couple of miles away along the coast road is Holkham Hall with its impressive 18th century Palladian architecture and 3,000 acre deer park. This is a must visit location for all the family with many lovely events taking place at Holkham throughout the year. There is also a nature reserve in and around the Holkham which includes all manner of wildlife habitats, flora and fauna. You can visit the Lookout for panoramic views whilst enjoying a cuppa located at the top of Lady Anne’s Drive. The beach at Holkham is absolutely beautiful and has often been used as the location for many films and music videos including ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and ‘The Duchess’. You will often see families with their four-legged friend or even weekend horse riders, or if you are lucky the Household Cavalry at the beach.

Guest reviews

Our 3rd year at 3 Monteagle absolutely wonderful , I can,t think of anything to complain about, all our party ,loved it. This year the apartment was immaculate when we arrived, last year there was a bit of a blip as the cleaners hadn't serviced it, but Sowerbys rectified the problem quickly. Each year we,ve booked the same week and have been blessed with terrific weather. Monteagle is just an ideal apartment for a holiday, The Globe was a favourite place for us all as was the hotel in the corner. We also hired a beach hut for 3 days which proved a hit, and the coastal bus was more than handy. Theres always the worry of not finding a parking space but we always managed to find a space in The Butlands. All in all a 100% success.

Better than expected. Such a lovely apartment in a great position. The property was extremely clean and spacious with well stocked crockery/glassware etc. The beds were very comfortable, in fact we were a group of 6 adults and my partner and I slept in the twin bed room and the beds were so comfortable. The location is just great as we pottered between the Globe and the Crown after our walks to Holkham Hall, the Victoria and along the beach.
