Wells-next-the-Sea

Wells-next-the-Sea, a small picturesque town, is situated at the heart of the North Norfolk coastline, which forms part of the largest coastal nature reserve in England and Wales, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is central also to that part which is recognised as the Heritage Coast. The beaches of Wells, together with those of neighbouring Holkham, must be among the largest and most beautiful sandy beaches in the UK. Equally distinctive and attractive along this stretch of coastline are the sand dunes, pinewoods, creeks and salt marshes, appealing to families, sun worshippers, walkers and bird watchers alike.

Bexwell Cottage full details

Bexwell Cottage is a charming, newly-built, cottage-style detached house. The use of traditional brick and flint for the walls and red tiles for its roof ensures that the house sits well with the attractive houses typical of North Norfolk. The interior has been finished to a high standard, with careful attention paid to a layout and detail that are designed to enhance convenience, comfort and enjoyment.

The house is situated very close to both the centre of Wells and the quay. Shops, post office, library, bank and other facilities are a minute away. Set in sizeable grounds, the house has parking space for three cars.

On the ground floor, the accommodation consists of entrance hall, sitting room, garden or sun room, combined kitchen and dining room, conservatory, bedroom and shower room/wc. On the first floor, there are two bedrooms, each with en suite facilities.

The house offers accommodation, ideally, for up to five persons, though there is scope for a sixth. The first floor bedrooms, each of which has its own room with shower and wc (and one a bath also), have, respectively, a large double bed and twin beds, all with pocket sprung mattresses.

The third bedroom, on the ground floor, has a single bed, as well as a truckle bed, stored beneath the single bed, which could be used in appropriate circumstances. The room with shower and wc on the ground floor is adjacent to the third bedroom.

The sitting room, conservatory and garden room have a southerly aspect and a view over a lawned garden surrounded by trees and shrubs, inviting relaxation both indoors and out. The conservatory, facing east as well as south, is ideal for comfortable and leisurely breakfasts, as an alternative to the main dining area.

The comprehensive range of equipment and facilities, in the kitchen and elsewhere, includes two electric ovens, with grill, gas hobs, microwave oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dish washer. In the sitting room, there are TV and DVD player and, elsewhere in the house, audio equipment and additional TVs.

A gas boiler supplies hot water and provides heating through radiators, on the first floor, and under floor on the ground floor. A wood burning stove, in the sitting room, offers luxury or alternative heating.

For overall comfort and enjoyment, smoking is not permitted in Bexwell Cottage and, regrettably, pets cannot be accommodated.

Bed linen and towels (other than beach towels) are normally supplied – unless users of the cottage prefer otherwise.

Wi-Fi is available.

Places of interest

Beaches, dunes and marshes

There is no shortage of things to do and see in an area of such beauty - walking, cycling, lazing or playing on the beautiful beaches (where some of the beach huts may be hired by the day), swimming, sailing, bird watching and generally appreciating nature in fields, pine woods and marshes, and on sea and sand.

Not only the quay and beaches in Wells itself but also the beaches, dunes, woods, marshes, creeks and bird reserves in Holkham, Stiffkey, Morston, Blakeney, Brancaster, Titchwell and Cley-next-the-Sea, all between two and ten miles away, present fascinating activities, sights and sounds.

Get active

For something different, water-skiing and windsurfing are permitted at Wells' beach, along with sailing (with a sailing club that welcomes visitors) and canoeing. In Wells, also, or in the surrounding area, there are opportunities for ballooning, boat trips to view some of the many seals in the area, bowls, fishing, golf, horse riding, parachuting, squash, tennis and ten pin bowling.

Railways

Between Wells and Walsingham, there is a regular service, from 1 April to end of October, using the longest 10 ¼ inch narrow guage steam railway in the world, while, within Wells, the Harbour Railway runs from the harbour towards the beach, a distance of just under a mile. Further afield, the North Norfolk Railway (Poppy Line) connects Sheringham and Holt, via Weybourne, giving access to sea-side and countryside walks and the Bure Valley Railway runs between Aylsham and Wroxham.

Churches, Houses and Gardens

Beautiful and interesting churches are thick on the ground in North Norfolk and nearby, as well as several ruined abbeys and priories, including those at Walsingham - a place of pilgrimage since 1061, Binham, North Creake and Castle Acre.

There are many impressive houses and stately homes in the area, including Holkham and Houghton Halls, Sandringham House , and the National Trust properties Blickling, Felbrigg and Oxborough Halls. Nearby, villages and towns, such as Walsingham, the Burnhams, Holt and Cromer have an abundance of eye-catching buildings.

In addition to those at the grand houses already named, there are many other gardens in the area that are worthy of visit - Mannington Hall, Wolterton Park, Pensthorpe Nature Reserve, East Ruston Vicarage, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Gardens, Heacham Lavender and Bressingham, to name but a few.

Museums and working Mills

A wealth of exciting heritage is to be found in North Norfolk at museums in Holkham, Walsingham, Cromer, Fakenham, Holt and Mundesley, and in the Muckleburgh Collection of military vehicles, the Norfolk Shire Horse Centre and the Thursford Collection of steam agricultural and fairground machinery and mechanical organs.

Working wind mills and bakeries can be seen at Bircham and Denver, and demonstrations of a working water mill are available at Letheringsett.

Places to eat

Wells itself offers a wide range of cafes, restaurants, pubs and hotels, all serving good food during the day or evening. A further range can be found in villages nearby, both along and away from the coast, notably in Stiffkey, Morston, Cley-next-the-Sea and Blakeney, Burnham Overy Staithe, Brancaster, Thornham, Burnham Market, Burnham Thorpe, Warham and Walsingham.
