Wells next the Sea
Wells-next-the-Sea is a small but lively seaside town situated between Stiffkey and Holkham and is undoubtedly one of the most attractive towns on the North Norfolk Coast. There is a long sweeping beach bordered by pine woodland where many an old fashioned, picturesque beach hut can be found. A gentle harbour with small fishing boats, children crabbing with lines along the quay, an array of small shops in Staithe Street and The Buttlands, a tree-lined park surrounded by handsome Georgian houses and a selection of quiet pubs and restaurants – The Crown and The Globe – are all situated here. Grab some fish and chips from French’s along the quay if you fancy something quick and simple to eat – many rate these as the best fish and chips in the county!
A beautiful and historic seaside resort, Wells is a great location if you are choosing Norfolk as a place to stay and Kett Country Cottages have a number of holiday cottages in Wells and the surrounding areas, to suit all your needs – however long you chose to holiday in this stunning location.
Wells and the surrounding towns and villages provide opportunities for sightseeing, water sports, golf, and bird watching in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Nearby Cley Marshes Nature Reserve is one of the finest bird watching sites in Britain. Country walks along the coastal paths and Peddars Way also offer plenty of fun for all the family. Why not take a boat trip from Blakeney to see the seals at Scolt Head island, the nature reserve or how about a shopping trip to Holt or Burnham Market or fruit picking at Wiveton Hall? Want to learn how to handle a powerboat or take part in a RYA sailing course with your children? All these things can be organised in Wells. There are also the stunning stately homes of Holkham and Houghton Hall that are easily reached from Wells and are open to the public.
Throughout the year there are fairs and fetes, exhibitions and galleries and the highlight of the year must surely be the annual Wells Carnival Week at the end of July which culminates in a Carnival Day procession around the town featuring floats, fancy-dress and live music, giving the Notting Hill Carnival a real run for its money!
Let Kett Country Cottages help you organise a memorable and magical holiday in Norfolk – we bet you’ll come back next year too!
