A comfortable bungalow for four guests, situated in a quiet area of Wells-next-the-Sea, within walking distance of the town centre and 1.5 miles from the town’s beautiful sandy beach.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a beautiful harbour town situated on the North Norfolk coast, and has become somewhat of a destination for those looking for a chic holiday resort. The town’s quay offers a range of boat trips, which are lovely way to spend an afternoon either cruising around the harbour or touring the peaceful marshes which lie to the east of the town. Just outside the town itself, Wells beach is a perfect expanse of fine sand backed by cool pinewoods and a string of colourful beach huts. At low tide it is possible to walk around to Holkham Bay, a huge beach which featured in the film Shakespeare in Love and belongs to the vast Holkham estate and the manor house at Holkham Hall.

Arriving at this bungalow, guests will come first to the hallway which leads into the dual-aspect lounge/diner. This sunny room offers guests a pleasant place in which to relax and unwind, with a choice of comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, and a dining table seating up to four guests. The kitchen is situated just along the hallway, looking over the garden, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and washing machine. The property has two bedrooms, the first of which is a double room with plenty of space to store clothes in the wardrobe and chest of drawers. The second bedroom, meanwhile, is a bright room with twin beds and a TV/DVD which is only suitable for playing DVDs. The owners have even provided a large box of Lego too, which is bound to be a hit with younger guests. The bathroom has been finished with a seaside theme and offers a shower-over-bath, next to which there is a separate cloakroom with WC.

To the rear of the property, guests will find an enclosed garden to the rear of the property. The lawn is bordered by mature shrubs, beyond which there is a shingled seating area with garden furniture and a BBQ. There is off-road parking for two cars on the front driveway.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Feb 2020. Property warm and everything worked. Description is accurate, its not up to date decor, however it was value for money. Beds very good. Bedding and towels provided. Parking a little tight on entry due to small wall placed just at tyre height, but once in its fine. Great location, good garden for dogs.

A cosy house with plenty of useful equipment in the kitchen for self catering. Nice garden with seating for good weather and off road parking is a bonus in this area. Good for two adults or two plus small children but small for four adults

Excellent bungalow, warm and comfortable with a well enclosed garden, and wifi provided. Ten minutes walk to Wells harbour front pass the shops on Straithe street. Don't expect the latest modern kitchen and bathroom, but we found it ideal for the week with everything we needed.

A perfectly relaxing place to stay. It has a homely feel as though we were staying with family and they had kindly gone out and left us to it.

Great location in quiet cul de sac. Garden good for dogs.

Reviewed by Gemma 18th October 2019

Lovely little bungalow, very warm and comfortable with a lovely garden perfect for sitting out in and for the dogs to roam after a long day at the beach. A 5 minute drive to the Quay meant it was a perfect location in a very quiet close. Unfortunately our dogs have recently had operations so we did not attempt walking to the Quay from the bungalow Read morebut it would probably be no more than 10 minutes by foot. It was very nice to have access to some condiments left in the cupboard also. Hide

Location brilliant. Enclosed garden for dogs ideal especially since the fence by the back door has been moved. Comfortable adequate facilities.

Nice bungalow in a secluded cul de sac. Very quiet. A fairly large garden which was good fo our dog. Bicycles in the shed for our use if we wanted to (& helmets & a padlock & chain). Only a 10 minute walk from town centre.

Reviewed by Gwynne 12th July 2019

The cottage was too small to accommodate four adults with limited storage space for clothes etc. Rather old and tired both inside and out. The one redeeming factor was its location, very quiet and within easy reach of the pub and shops

A clean & lovely cottage and amenities. Thank you for the teabags. A nice welcoming touch.We left you some of ours. Lovely quiet garden and location! Well return for 3rd visit next year

Reviewed by Graham 23rd March 2019

We had a great week here with our 2 dogs. It isnt a boutique style property so dont expect wood burners or hotel style walk in showers. And we wouldnt put it on our list of romantic getaways. But it is very clean and has everything you need. It has a fully enclosed garden for dogs (or kids!). And it is so close to some amazing beaches at Wells, HolRead morekham and Brancaster which are all within a 5 to 15 minute drive. Highly recommended for a relaxing getaway. Hide
