Guest Reviews

it was a lovely property, very well located and definitely had the WOW factor.

Goulsbra Party - 26/03/2018

The location opposite The Buttlands was perfect and the whole house felt very homely and comfortable.

Abbott Party - 03/11/2017

Had a lovely long weekend at The Haven. Beautiful house so uniqely decorated. In a perfect location with the green and beach a short walk away. Amazing memories made that we look forward to re-living on our next visit.

Anon from Bury St Edmunds - 26/04/2017

Another fabulous Easter in Wells. We love The Haven, the town, the beach and the walks. Thanks again.

The Gibbards - 07/04/2017

Lisa and Wayne and friends - 29/12/2016

We like the house so much we're booked for New Year. Greatly appreciated the logs for the fire! Linen is beautiful. Lovely decor.

Andrew, Lynette and friends - 11/11/2016

House is lovely in such a great location. Brought the family here after 24 years and it is as beautiful as I remember it!!

Chris, Peter and family - 03/09/2016

Been coming to Wells for 20 years since daughters were tiny. Fabulous stay in a lovely house. What a great house to celebrate our daughter's 'first' from Uni in. Lovely stay!!

Bryony, Phil and family - 24/06/2016

We just wanted to say what a wonderfully relaxed stay we had. The house was just gorgeous, beautifully finished and a pleasure to stay in, the space worked for our family perfectly. The superb location with a pretty outlook topped with good weather induced much sadness when the time came to leave it all behind...even our little terrier, Bunter, hid in the sitting room because he didn't want to leave! Undoubtedly, we will return to The Haven soon! We had such a lovely welcome and the property was well equipped for a short stay, we appreciated the prosecco and nibbles on arrival...I will certainly recommend your services.

Hope to be in touch soon to book a week next year,

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.
