“We had a wonderful time!”

Loved the newly-refurbished Mousetrap. Really roomy, 5 of us enjoyed a week there in October. Lovely and warm, the kitchen is very well-equipped and has everything you need, beds have really snug quilts, the long sofas are great for idling! And a real bonus in Wells to have parking space. We enjoyed watching the geese fly over, had a beach hut day in Wells, had a good time eating and drinking at the Globe, walked by the deer in the grounds at Holkham - went further afield to beautiful Salthouse. We will be back.

“Wonderful Wells Holiday”
Reviewed October 5, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Had a wonderful stay in The Mousetrap - very comfortable and plenty of space for our party of 4 adults and dog. The Cottage catered for all our needs - fab kitchen. Ideally situated for the town and walk to the beach, also travelling in either direction to other places in North Norfolk. Wells is just a lovely town, you have everything you need. Great places to eat - Golden Fleece being our favourite but the Crab Pot was great too. Will definitely wish to visit again.

“Bigger than a mousetrap!”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The Mousetrap is very spacious and well equipped with a great location. The walk to the harbour is less than 10 minutes and there are a number of local shops for groceries etc.
The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped with all the utensils one might need.

“FANTASTIC !!!”

person found this review helpful

lovely and spacious!! Lovely ooen plan kitchen with every utensil, pan, plate , glass and casserole dish you can think of !! These guys have really thought of everything . The lounge is very spacious and well decorated. What I particularly think is great is that there is 2 bedrooms to the right of the lounge and a bathroom but on the left of the lounge there is the 3rd bedroom with its own toilet and shower . This would work particularly well if grandma and grandad were joining you, they get some privacy and you do too. There was plenty of room for my two boys to run around without getting under my feet . I loved the place it suited us perfectly . I will definitely stay again . If there's one thing I would have liked it would be a large smart tv so we could log into our Netflix or Amazon on a evening when the kids are in bed !! Highly recommended though perfectly located with space for 2 cars.

We have stayed in wells for years but this cottage was the best ever. It's like a tardis inside and been decorated with style and care. Would have liked a freezer compartment for ice cream and a dishwasher but these were not bug bears because the living area was a great size, parking good, outside space superb and comforts to an excellent standard. a dream cottage the sort you would buy if you won the lottery....we had such fun. So close to the Buttlands just wonderful. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful little haven within walking distance of everything in the Village. Bonus of a pub two doors down which served terrific food. The house had all the amenities we required and comfy beds. Did I mention the towels? So soft and fluffy! Would definitely recommend!

Stayed for a long weekend and the accommodation was superb. Very well equipped in all areas. Had parking for two cars and even a barbeque in the rear courtyard. A short stroll from the town centre but nice and quiet.
