Discover the charms of Wells-next-the-Sea

Book a Holiday Cottage in lovely Wells-next-the-Sea, and enjoy all the fun of a British holiday by the seaside and the many attractions of the Norfolk coast. Wells has been popular as a holiday destination for many decades, and its appeals are easy to see. With one of the best beaches in the country, a picturesque harbour and quay, breathtaking coastal scenery and a countryside bursting with wildlife, it would be hard to keep it a secret!

The quay and harbour is the centre of Wells life, with a working fishing fleet, seaside shops and amusements, traditional crab fishing off the harbour wall, and plentiful fish and chips for hungry visitors. Crabbing on the quay is always a favourite pursuit for families visiting Wells – even if you’re just a spectator, seeing the fun and excitement such as simple pastime brings to children (and their parents!) is a real pleasure.

Wells is home to a miniature narrow-gauge railway, the Wells and Walsingham Light Railway which runs from the town to the famous pilgrimage village of Little Walsingham, and a new Wells Beach Bus service where a fully electric bus and a vintage open-top bus ferries holidaymakers from the town to the beautiful beach.

The beach is located a mile from the quay, and can be reached using the beach bus, or by walking along the raised bank which overlooks the harbour and protected salt marshes. The beach itself is breathtaking – miles of soft, pale sand, perfect for building sandcastles, playing games, giving the dogs a run, or just lazing in the sunshine. Rows of colourful beach huts on raised stilts provide a pretty backdrop and feature in countless paintings, postcards and photographs of Wells.

Behind the beach are the pinewoods, a shady dell of scented Corsican pines planted around 150 years ago to protect the land from tidal surges, providing a welcome respite from the sun and a home for local wildlife. The Norfolk Coast Path passes through the woods as it meanders along the coast through the amazing landscapes of the North Norfolk coast.

Many of the traditional fishermen’s homes have now been converted into charming holiday accommodation. Located throughout the town and in the surrounding villages, holiday accommodation comes in all shapes and sizes, from tiny “two-up, two-down” holiday cottages to spacious contemporary barn conversions. Wells offers a wide range of cottages with varying features, and you can search for your ideal holiday rental here on Wells Guide, using the filters above to pinpoint your perfect coastal getaway.

Wherever you decide to stay, you’ll never forget a seaside holiday in Wells-next-the-Sea!
