I would highly recommend the Boxwood Guesthouse- Paula was very welcoming and friendly. The room was excellent and they have really gone out of their way- there is home made cake in the rooms! The room was absolutely spotless with the added bonus of a shoe tray. We would definately go back.

There are dozens of B&B's to choose from in Wells if you plan properly - and our party of 7 did plan, and it turns out that we chose well. Location is Ace with only a short walk into Wells, We all found Richard & Paula to be welcoming, affable - in fact, it was very much like visiting friends.... More

We chose this B&B for its location, a 5 minute walk from the harbour. In terms of the area, there is a great choice of restaurants, pubs and fish and chip shops. We chose take away fish and chips which we shared on the picturesque quay. The following day we drove (5 minutes) to Wells beach, which can be as... More

Unfortunately we only had one night here but what a welcome! Freshly baked home made cake and fresh milk for our fridge. A very friendly welcome and use of the lounge. Well appointed bedroom with plenty of storage space..Breakfast was superb with plenty of choice. The owners made us feel at home. Would certainly stay here again.

We chose this guest house as we wanted somewhere convenient as a base to walk the North Norfolk Coastal Path and this certainly is as it is just a short walk to the Coasthopper bus service. We had a phone call from Paula before departing for our break, apologising that she may not be in when we arrived but explaining... More

If you are looking for a warm welcome this is the place! We got greeted by lovely hosts bearing cake for us. The size of the room and quality of the breakfast mean it can't be 5/5 but you get more than what you pay for :)
