A lovely old fisherman's cottage just bursting with character and charm only minutes away from the Quay and the heart of this popular seaside town.
Harbour View Cottage is a delightfully cosy and inviting 300-year old fisherman's cottage tucked away in a quite loke set back from the Quay. With beams made from the masts of old fishing boats, original wooden and tiled floors, a reclaimed pantile hearth, latch doors and steep Norfolk winder stairs to both floors, you can step back in time and let your imagination wander to Wells days gone by. But, don't worry, when you drift back to the present, you will find all mod cons, including wifi, central heating and Sky TV! You can catch a glimpse of the Quay and sea from the bedrooms, there is a lovely sunny and private terraced garden to relax in and the availability of off road parking - on a first come, first served basis. Once you are parked, you don't really need your car, because everything is within walking distance and, if you want to venture further afield, just catch the Coasthopper bus that regularly stops in the town all year round.
This two bedroom character cottage is set over three floors, and a very comfortable and secret hideaway that will appeal to all kinds of holiday makers - families, walkers, bird watchers, couples and friends - at any time of the year.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a hub for North Norfolk coastal activities. From the picturesque harbour (where crabbing is a must) you can either walk, take the narrow-gauge railway or drive to the spectacular beach with its famous array of colourful beach huts. Stop at the Beach Cafe afterwards for a drink and snack - you can also hose down a sandy dog! Wells has a pretty, leafy green peaceful square,The Buttlands, which is surrounded by fine Georgian buildings. There is a bustling high street with all kind of independent shops, some lovely tearooms, great gastro pubs and restaurants. This beautiful coastline is a top destination for birders and walkers all year round. Beautiful Holkham Hall is just down the road. You can hire a bike from the quayside and spend a day exploring the coastal paths, or perhaps Holkham estate. And, don't forget to reward yourself after a busy, active day with some of the best fish and chips in the area.
