Being situated on the quay, it is only steps away from the local shops and path leading down to the sandy beach.
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.

A lovely apartment that feels like home-from-home, with amazing views over the quayside and beyond Great location with stunning views. Lift access was very helpful.
The apartment is spacious and very comfortable, equipped as a home with everything you might need. Its location, not only in Wells, such a nice town, but also so central on the quayside meant it was easy and quick to get around nearby. Although not used, the bus service and coastal hopper bus was available very close by. Car parking very close to the apartment entrance was very useful and convenient. The apartment being on the second floor (the lift was very useful) meant there were wonderful unbroken views to the North and East. It was interesting to watch the fishing boats at close quarters depart and return with their daily catch. Our second day, unexpectedly, coincided with the Wells Xmastide day: large craft fair, live music, food stalls, parades, Xmas lights turned on, a flotilla of lit up fishing boats cruising the harbour the last of which has Father Christmas for the kids and finally, a large firework display.
3rd. visit to 6 The Granary. We had a lovely few days including a visit to Thursford Christmas show, fairly kind weather and great fish & chips!! Wells was lovely and peaceful and we were able to appreciate it without the crows that summer brings.
The location is unbeatable, the views over the harbour and out to sea are wonderful. The views and walking on the coastal path and through Holkham . Many lovely places to eat as well.
We had yet another wonderful week staying at 6 the Granary- it’s the 12th time we’ve stayed there so you can guess that we really love staying there - sadly it may be the last time we stay there as the owners have put it on the market . The apartment is really lovely & feels very homely so each time we stay it’s like going home !!! If the new owners decide to continue to rent maybe you could let us know? The ease of parking is an asset as is the lift to get our stuff up to level 2 & down when you leave . When you step into the apartment you instantly feel at home . The views from every window are spectacular so we’ve spent many hours looking out at the ever changing scenes , tides etc . The welcome gifts are very thoughtful & much appreciated. . The apartment is very well stocked with all you need for cooking & the bed is extremely comfortable. All in all it’s a wonderful place to stay & we will really miss being able to stay there . It’s very close to everything you need for shopping, bus service, coastal paths etc etc .
As always a lovely apartment, warm and homely with superb views whatever the weather.

Very much enjoyed our stay! We have stayed elsewhere in Wells and feel this will be hard to beat with wonderful views. Such a well equipped apartment with all one could possibly want after coastal walks and birdwatching! Many thanks for your hospitality and we hope to come again.
Had a wonderful opportunity to stay in your apartment. We felt we could quite literally just remain glued to your armchairs and watch the ebb and flow of Wells, alas no room service so had to venture out!! Thank you for the experience, we truely enjoyed our stay. Thank you again.
The flat is ideal for a mid-winter break, cosy, quiet and those wonderful views!
Wonderful relaxing weekend break. Apartment perfect for us. Loved the views and the paintings. I am sure we will return.
