About the neighborhood
Wells-next-the-Sea is a wonderful seaside town on the stunning North Norfolk coast. Its beautiful wide sandy beach with colourful beach huts is set against a backtrop of pine trees and sand dunes. The lively working harbour is busy with small fishing boats and children fishing for crabs. The independent shops on Staithe Street (not a chain store in sight!) and the tree-lined park with its fine Georgian houses, quiet pubs and restaurants make it an unspoiled seaside destination. Further afield, Holkham, Brancaster, Cley and Blakeney are all within easy reach. You will be spoilt for choice for things to do in this beautiful part of North Norfolk.
Getting around
The harbour is a short walk from the cottage (450 yards). To reach the beach, either drive, take a walk from the harbour or catch the miniature steam train (very popular with children!).

Most local destinations are easily accessed by car.

The nearest train station is at Sheringham, which connects to Norwich via the Bittern Line. Sheringham is approximately 17 miles from Wells.

The Coasthopper bus is a great way to fully explore the North Norfolk Coast
