Tern Cottage is a Georgian end terrace house in a great location in the popular seaside town of Wells. This is a much loved family home, not a show house and as such is perfectly set up for children and bucket & spade holidays. The owner has taken care to give the house a more modern contemporary look whilst still retaining the old world charm. An added bonus is the opportunity to become a real local and rent one of the iconic beach huts on Wells beach for your stay.

Wells-next-the-Sea with its maze of narrow streets and alleyways offers a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. The quay is about 5 minutes (350-400 yards away) - once a busy port it still has a number of fishing boats and a sailing club. A miniature railway can take you down to the long sandy beach with its renowned Beach Cafe and long row of colourful beach huts. The area is ideal for walking or bird watching.

We very much enjoyed Tern Cottage, location and beach hut. Discount card is a great idea and encourages trying different places. We have been to North Norfolk many many times and always finds new places to visit as well as old favourites.

The cottage was lovely - decorated very tastefully - a home from home.
