Used trusted TA again but the photos on the Web page finally sold it to me. I wanted somewhere special and a surprise birthday treat and wasn't disappointed. The owners Peter and Maddie were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. I opted for the four poster room which had wonderful views out to sea. The room was spacious... More

We stayed as a couple at the end of November for two nights. We found Peter, the owner, very friendly and accomodating as we arrived slighty early but were still able to get into our room. The room itself was very comfortable with en suite and all the coffee / tea making facilities you could want. Bed itself was very... More

Boats outside your window, lovely location and fabulous hosts. We stayed in the downstairs twin room. Very comfortable for two. Little kitchen is an added bonus. We absolutely loved it. Oh, and the breakfast was top notch.

My partner and I came up last weekend for a break and had an amazing stay here. The hosts are very friendly and provided us with fresh milk :) and a delicious breakfast which was served around one lovely table so we could talk with the other guests. I had poached eggs which were cooked to perfection! We stayed in... More

I spent a very enjoyable night at this delightful B n B. The room was large, clean and cosy. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. They served a delicious breakfast in the beautiful wood panelled dining room They welcomed my little dog, which is what made me pick them in the first place. On top of that the location right...

3 nights at the beginning of October were simply not long enough and we will certainly be returning to enjoy another break at the Old Custom House. We stayed in the lovely Four Poster room enjoying wonderful views and we liked the original wooden shutters to each window. The room also has a spacious and well appointed ensuite. If, like... More

We have just stayed for 3 nights at The Old Custom House fantastic place, excellent breakfasts and wonderful hosts. The rooms have everything you could wish for, or have forgotten to bring with you. Nothing was too much trouble and the breakfasts set you up for the day. Great views from the bedrooms and very well placed for all that... More

We had a lovely nights stay at the Old Custom House, and I wish we could have stayed longer. we will definitely return at some point for a longer stay. We loved our room with its four poster bed and great view. And being so old we loved some of the old authentic features such as the original wooden shutters.... More

Day three of our cycling tour of East Anglia and today (Aug. 16th) we are in Wells-next-the-sea. Actually, it's quite far from the sea. We are staying at The Old Custom House and have arrived into town far earlier than expected. A quick phone call to Peter confirms that a space has been cleared in garage for the tandem and... More

The location of this wonderful old B&B was superb. Right on the quay. Also a stones throw from shops and pubs. The beach was within easy reach. The building itself was full of character. There were a few nice little extra touches in the bathroom; local soaps and the bedroom; fresh milk for tea that made this a very pleasant... More
