Guest Reviews

Great cottage, Great location, very clean and well equipped.

Brown Family - 21/10/2017

This is a beautiful cottage refurbished to a high standard and well stocked with all the basics you could need, add to that the close proximity to the town and quayside.

O'Leary Party - 16/09/2017

Thank you - lovely cottage in lovely Wells.

Kirkpatrick Party - 21/07/2017

Loved it - Thanks so much.
Lovely cottage- super nicely renovated and clean. Worked very well for our family.
Close to everything we needed, but far enough off the harbour to be quiet and peaceful.

Work Party - 05/06/2017

A lovely week once again in this warm, cosy, well equipped cottage. Thank you for the milk, bread and butter on arrival - so practical to arrive to when turning up late with hungry kids. We will be back. Many Thanks.

Howarth Family, Herts - 19/02/2016

Another great weekend away, thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home. Chocolate Deli was as good as ever and the walk along the beach was as windy as ever. See you next year!

I had so much fun making chocolates at the Walsingham Deli and going to Norwich was great. The beds are the most comfortable in the world.

- 11/12/2015

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay in this comfy cottage. A great base for a Christmas shopping weekend. Loads of nice places to eat out. Also appreciated the speedy response to our light bulb issues!

The Chard Girls - 28/11/2015

Another enjoyable stay here. We really appreciated the loaf of bread and milk left for us so we celebrated with a slice of toast and a cup of tea. Never seen such a well equipped holiday cottage. Really comfortable twin beds. We engaged in our usual activities: pumpkin trail in the walled garden on the Holkham Estate, a meal on the Albertros on the sloping deck - all part of the fun.

Toynton/Warrington Family - 30/10/2015

A really lovely stay - Well equipped, clean and comfy beds - We will come back. Great meals out and in the cottage too, thank you We loved the Albratros - such fun and different to anywhere we've ever been!

Wells-next-the-Sea

Location

Wells-next-the Sea is the runaway winner of the first Sunday Times "Beach of the Year" award. 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. 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 medieval 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 sandy beach flanked by pine forest is about a mile from the quay and can be reached by road, on foot along the causeway or via the miniature railway.

Holkham Hall with its impressive 18th century Palladian architecture and 3,000 acre deer park is only a couple of miles away along the coast road.
