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.

McCullum Family , 10th of May 2024

Lovely flat, comfy and spacious, great location. North Norfolk has so many interesting places to visit, great galleries, fabulous coastal walks - is a favourite ‘haunt’. a great stay and excellent place for a friends’ reunion. Fabulous Gormley exhibition at Houghton Hall - the gardens there are a wonderful setting for large scale sculptures - never disappoints! Binham Priory and the fantastic restaurant there - lovely tasteful atmosphere, friendly, excellent food and had the bonus of a view of a newborn calf learning to walk! Binham Priory is a beautiful, peaceful site in a stunning landscape.

The Cooper's, 4th of November 2022

We have always enjoyed our stays in the flat, roomy and very comfortable with a gorgeous little garden suntrap. Following a stroke a few years ago my horizons are a bit limited but Wells is a lovely little town and I was able to take walks every day using my stroller. We tried a few meals out , coffee at Wills, and an early evening pint of Wherry at the Globe. Just Perfect!

The Snells and Woods, 30th of November 2017

We couldn't have enjoyed our time at Monteagle Gardne Flat more - it was the perfect home for us to enjoy wells from and the first time we've stayed somewhere that we would love to rebook.
Perfect in every way.

We loved the open plan layout of the living space, the way the flat had been decorated was beautiful and the way it felt like a family home rather than a holiday rental.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug.
