Property code: KT050

This property enjoys a fantastic position, just a few minutes’ walk from all the amenities of Wells-next-the-Sea, and yet backing onto open fields across which glimpses can be caught of the sea. Wells is a historic harbour town, situated on the estuary, nestled between the sandy beaches of the Holkham Estate and the tranquil creeks which meander through the marshes. The town itself has an excellent range of shops, making it easy to stock up on supplies as well as spend a pleasant afternoon browsing for gifts and souvenirs to take home. There is a fantastic choice of places to eat in the town, many of which serve the delicious local seafood for which the area is known. The beach, which lies just over a mile from the town centre, is a wonderful stretch of sand which is backed by pine trees and makes up part of the Holkham Estate belonging to nearby Holkham Hall.

Guests approach this cottage via an archway which takes them along a private covered alleyway at the side of the house and to the French doors leading to the garden. Once inside, they will find the spacious open-plan living space which runs the full length of the property. The lounge area of the room is located towards the rear and has two plump sofas which sit next to the double french doors and allow guests to easily relax at the end of a busy day, perhaps with a favourite programme on the Smart TV. The dining table seating six is situated in the middle of the space, beyond which the kitchen has been finished with some carefully chosen pieces which reflect the cottage’s position close to the coast. There is a good range of equipment for those guests who want to eat-in, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine. On the first floor of the cottage, guests will find the house bathroom with its bath having a hand held shower attachment, WC, as well as two of the property’s three bedrooms. The first of these is a king size  boasting views towards the coast, whilst the second is a pretty room which can be set up as either a single or a twin, thanks to the pull-out trundle bed. A further set of stairs leads up to the master bedroom suite on the second floor, a delightful room with a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room with WC.

To the rear of the property, there is a decked sun terrace for which there is garden furniture and a BBQ provided and which offers panoramic views across open fields and beyond to the coast.

Excellent location, all local amenities within easy walking distance. A cosy cottage, ideal for a break anytime of year. On street parking was available during our November stay, but the pay and display is an ideal alternative and at 34 for the week is good value.

Super little place to stay if you're looking for something straightforward and right in the heart of the town. Clean and well equipped. Enclosed rear garden was perfect for our little dog and the view of the park and footpaths to the beach beyond was great for a spot of people watching. So many fabulous places to visit if you're based in Wells.

Lovely cottage in ideal location. On street parking was a bit hit and miss though there is a fee paying car park almost opposite. We had problems getting and keeping the cottage warm during the intense cold spell in February. Had most of the amenities you would require for a stay but strangely no tea strainer or sieve.
