Stay here every year. Always immaculate & well equipped and so close to all local amenities. Love the log burning stove for chillier evenings but weather was glorious so didn’t need it this time. Wells is a beautiful seaside town with loads to do for adults and children alike.

The cottage is a perfect size with plenty of space for 6 adults. The booking process and contact with the owners has always been fantastic. The cottage has everything we needed for our entire stay. We can’t wait to return next year!

I did not stay in the house personally, however put some business colleagues up here for a total of 3 weeks (Carl kindly let us extend our stay at short notice). I only heard great things about the house and they were thrilled with their stay in total! Thanks so much for your help!

March 2018

Lovely stay at The Mousetrap, 10 minute walk to the quayside, its own parking is very useful, quality of mattresses, pillows, linen etc all very good.

October 2017

We stayed at the Mousetrap for 4 nights. I wish we had more time to spend there as our stay was so lovely. The house is fantastic, well equipped, very cosy, spacious, quiet, well located and we really felt like at home.

Location is great as everything you need is in walking distance. Some great pubs around the corner! And North Norfolk is just beautiful. We had some questions before our stay and Carl was really helpful and responsive. Overall, we couldn't have wished for more - fantastic stay!

Everything we need from a holiday home: clean, good beds, great location and everything worked. Wells is a good base for a break in north Norfolk.
