Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk

Property Overview

Walnut Cottage is a beautifully restored and presented 18th century cottage situated in central Wells, located on the old High Street in a quiet position just 5 minutes walk from the quayside.

A quintessential cottage with beams, a pine kitchen and a very spacious and luxurious bathroom with a free standing roll top bath. Victorian style cast iron radiators and a wood burning stove make the house a cosy place in wintertime.

The cottage sleeps four, having a king-size four poster bed in the main bedroom and a further twin bedroom on the top floor with lovely views. There is a secluded, very pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage with seating and outside lighting.

Walnut Cottage has 5 star reviews and guests return for many years.

Further Details

The cottage is a delightful Georgian double fronted house with an enclosed rear garden, which is very private. Rear access is gained from the adjacent Green Dragon Lane. The cottage was built in 1720 and renovations were completed in May 1998, to provide a very comfortable and attractive home.

The cottage comprises a fabulous sitting room, a really cosy and comfortable room with chairs and sofa, cast iron wood burning stove, LCD TV with DVD player, music centre and iPod docking station. There’s a good selection of DVDs, books, games and magazines. Logs and coal, available locally, are supplied for three days of fires.

The kitchen is the heart of the home, a traditional pine kitchen with pamment floor. It is well equipped with gas cooker, fridge, washing machine and microwave. There is also a large dining table with chairs and a wonderful old door with enormous key leading to a pretty and sheltered rear courtyard garden.

There is an enclosed and carpeted spiral staircase leading to the landing area (please note the stairs are steep), with chairs, original Georgian floorboards and built in pine wardrobe.

The large family bathroom is quite simply a stunning room with an amazing original mural, a free standing Victorian style roll top bath, a very spacious frameless walk in shower, WC with high level cistern and basin. The perfect bath to enjoy a bottle of champagne and candles.

The main bedroom is a romantic and calm room with a pine four poster king sized bed surrounded with single white fairy lights. A Tempur mattress promotes a fabulous nights sleep. There’s an iPod docking station, wardrobe, mirrors, hairdryer, bedside tables and lamps.

On the second floor is a twin-bedded room with flat screen LCD TV. This room has a lovely view over gardens to the Buttlands, the village green, which in the 18th century housed the town bandstand. It’s a very pleasant area surrounded by mature trees and this is the most suitable place to park being just moments from the rear of the house.

Outside there is a secluded and sheltered, very pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage with seating and outside lighting, perfect for al fresco dining. The garden is walled and has a tall gate with bolt, it is totally private.

Parking is available for free on The Buttlands and is a two minute walk to the cottage.

We had a lovely few days here recently. It is 10 years almost exactly since we last stayed, and it is just as delightful now as it was then! Brilliant location - quiet yet very central, with great facilities and has a lovely cosy feel. We will be back!
