“Super place to stay in ideal location”
Reviewed July 20, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The cottage was clean and very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Comfortable beds too! The location is great, short walk to shops/pubs/restaurants and the quay.
Would definitely stay again!

“A great place to stay in a brilliant location”
Reviewed July 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A lovely cottage with modern kitchen equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. The décor was bright and clean and the beds very comfortable. The location meant you could walk into town within a few minutes, perfect if you want a few drinks with your evening meal! Also a bonus to have parking for two cars.

“Lovely cottage, ideal base........................”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Arrived to a very clean well equipped cosy cottage ideal for 5 adults but would suit 6 adults with no problem at all. Everything provided , including new dishcloths, wash up liquid, BBQ stuff ( replace if used), logs if needed (we didn't), and so on.
Main bathroom very slightly dated but very clean so OK. Beds, bedding, towels immaculate.
Wells is pretty and you can walk everywhere from the cottage ( one of our party has mobility issues but had no problems) Supermarkets ( 2) very close by. Pub virtually next door. Beach a bit of a walk ( scenic ,flowers, boats) but railway or car park available for tired legs. Nice cafe at Beach
Thanks Carl for a lovely week.

“Fantastic, quiet homely place to stay close to the harbour”
Reviewed June 27, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Fantastic home from home. We went to stay for the half term week. The mousetrap is lovely and overlooks the church. You can tell the owners stay here as it is well equipped and homely. Games for the kids in the cupboards, crabbing lines in the shed, all just add to the care and thought that has gone into creating the perfect family destination. The woodburner looked fab but the weather was glorious so we didn't get to use it. The place is immaculate and clean and well serviced. The shower looked brand new and one in the main bathroom as well as one in the twin room was really useful when we'd all been to the beach and were trying to get ready to go out in the evening. Literally a 2 minute walk to the green and five minutes to the harbour which was just perfect. I love Wells it's just a fantastic place and now having found the perfect place to stay too we'll be going there more often.

“Brilliant location!”
Reviewed June 24, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Central location - easy access to the town, supermarket, harbour, beach and Holkham Hall. Secure private parking meant we parked the car up when we arrived, and didn't use it again until we left! Well equipped cottage with plenty of space. A really lovely holiday

“A brilliant week”
Reviewed June 9, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Just back from a glorious week in lovely Wells. This cottage is the perfect base to use to explore this lovely seaside town.
Very big and comfortable, spotlessly clean when we arrived, very helpful owners and a really nice courtyard area too.
The walk down to the beach is lovely; the nearby shops are very nice to walk around the the bowling green pub almost next door served lovely food.
Fantastic pricing when compared with similar holiday lets in the area.
Will hopefully be returning very soon!
