Albert's Cottage holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-sea is a charming, traditional seaside town with sandy beaches protected by a pinewood forest. A visit to Wells wouldn't be complete without trying your luck at a spot of crabbing on the quayside, or simply relaxing and watching the world go by whilst sampling the best in local fish and chip cuisine. Bicycle hire is available on the quayside. Great local pubs include The Crown Inn, The Globe and The Victoria at Holkham. Head to Holkham to explore the parkland, beach and house or go east to take a boat road from Morston to see the Seals or f you're lucky you may see the seals swimming in the channel from the beach at Wells!

Guest reviews

Great little cottage in the heart of Wells will definitely go back again. Great stay in a great cottage in a central location . Comfortable stay nice & quiet.

We have stayed at "Albert's" a number of times and keep coming back. Each time we find the owners have made improvements and changes, some small others more extensive, and all of which have added to our enjoyment of the cottage. The rooms are quite small, but that is no problem for us, we love the convenience of a central location, so near to shops, pubs and restaurants and the sea front. "Albert's" provides everything you need for an enjoyable and comfortable holiday self catering.

Return to Albert's - This is our third (or fourth?) stay at Albert's Cottage and we will be returning I'm sure in the future, probably next year!

What a beautiful cottage! Perfectly appointed and SO comfortable. All made extra special by the lovely touches by the owner, we loved the iced buns! We have stayed in Wells a number of times but this is by far our favourite cottage. We are already looking for dates for next year!

Charming and perfectly situated

A wonderful week at this beautifully appointed cottage. A personal note from the owner and iced buns was a perfect start.
All amenities are within five minutes walk, literally, butcher, baker and fishmonger. Bracing walks along the beach, coffee at the Beach Cafe and almost too many pubs to choose from! A return visit is in the diary.

Albert's Cottage has been a delightful base for a restful week in Norfolk. We have thoroughly enjoyed the people we have met, the places we have explored and especially finding so many waders in the coastal marshes to identify!

Thank you for all the thought and care, work and artistry your I have put in to making this cottage so lovely!

Right by sea and dog friendly.

The cottage was perfect for all our needs and so handy for everything. It was clean and comfortable and the treats left for us were scrumptious and the fresh flowers were a nice touch too. All in all a fabulous holiday.

We have had a lovely stay here at Albert's Cottage. The weather was great and so was the cottage. We would definitely recommend staying here to our family and friends. We hope to come back again.

We had a wonderful week at Albert's Cottage with my 90 year old father. The location was perfect as the mains street was a few seconds away and the quay a few minutes. We all loved wandering around Wells and could all have our own independence as the cottage was perfectly situated. The outside seating area was very sunny and my father spent hours sitting outside reading his newspaper. We found the cottage comfortable and parking was not a problem. A perfect week for us all.

This is the fifth year we have had a holiday at Albert's Cottage as the first time we stayed there we found it an ideal position for the harbour,shops, restaurants etc. We have found the cottage clean,cosy and comfortable with facilities which we need for a week,also the hire charge very reasonable.

Woodward Family, July 2017

The cottage is in an ideal location. It is right in the centre of Wells close to a top class butcher ,baker and fishmonger yet it is still quiet and peaceful. As it was a fishermans cottage it is not very spacious and the stairs are very steep but for a couple it is more than adequate. It is our fourth stay and we will definitely be back!

Bradshaw Family , June 2017

Lovely stay in this pretty cottage. Immaculately clean and full of everything you could need. We had just a little trouble finding and using the key box but no big deal. Only other problem was a neighbours noisy yapping dog but no fault of the cottage itself.

Keel Family, June 2017

We were delighted with the location of Alberts cottage and although it's tiny it's really well equipped, peaceful and comfortable.

Alberts cottage was very compact but very cosy,clean and absolutely central. The stairs were very steep, my partner is 70 but didn't find them a problem. We did manage to park on the lane outside each day. It was a little walk to get to the cottage, but was no problem. It's ideal for 2 people, we thought it would be tight for 4 adults. A great break.

Our first visit to Albert's Cottage and what a superb, cosy, comfortable cottage in such an excellent location. We have had a really lovely week although the weather has been cold and windy, Wells is a very special place. Thank you for making us so welcome, lovely brownies on arrival, we plan to come again!

We had a great week in Albert's cottage, one of the best cottages we have stayed in on the Norfolk Coast. The location could not be better. the cottage clean ,cosy and welcoming. We found it worrying on arrival due to no space to park, but thankfully it was sorted, we were lucky, otherwise the problem could be solved later on in the day. We understand why holiday makers want to return to Albert's cottage, It certainly does not disappoint..

What a gorgeous cottage! We have had a fabulous week here, thank you so much! the welcome package was great and the children were thrilled that the Easter bunny had found us in Norfolk.

Mum and I celebrated our birthdays at the cottage (90 and 60 respectively) and we are so glad we decided to stay at Albert's Cottage. The stairs were a bit of a challenge for Mum at first but were soon mastered (she came down backwards!). The cottage was small and compact and had every thing we needed. A bonus for the week was the lovely weather (very fortunate in April) and we sat for many hours outside the cottage which was an absolute sun trap. Wells is a favorite destination of ours and we have stayed in many cottages but Albert's Cottage is one of the best.

A great week in this lovely cottage with my Wife and in-laws. The weather has been kind with plenty of sun and no rain! We came for a family wedding so the sun was a real blessing! Plenty of great walking and eating out, thank you.

This is a beautiful little cottage in an excellent location right in the centre of Wells. We had a very comfortable stay here and spent lots of mornings eating breakfast in the little sun trap of it's back garden. Everything had been thought of with lots of care in evidence, from the provision of welcome brownies (that's the cake not the small folk!) to crisp white bed linen. We will be back!!

Marshall Family, March 2017

our first visit to Alberts cottage but it won't be our last! We have loved this little gem with its perfect location. We walked on the beach despite the icy winds, eaten at the local hostelries and a enjoyed a bottle or two in front of the fie, we'll be back!

We have had a wonderful time here at Alberts Cottage, a little gem in a perfect place! Wells is lovely and provided us with an unforgettable winter holiday. We have walked a lot, eaten too much, opened too many bottles and snoozed too much in front of the TV, just perfect!

“This was our first holiday in Norfolk and we have loved it! Alberts cottage is just lovely - perfect location, cosy and so welcoming. We parked the car and haven't used it all week with beautiful walks along the beach which is magnificent and returning on the coast hopper bus, what a brilliant service, we have had just such a perfect time. We have had some lovely meals out we will definitely return to this beautiful part of the country! Thank you!”

It is so well equipped and fitted out too. I love this area and will definitely come back to Alberts Cottage, thank you!”

“Brilliant cosy cottage that was very well equipped and perfectly located for popping to the shops. We loved the little courtyard garden which was very pretty and peaceful. Lots of places to eat within a few minutes walk, including award winning fish and chips, what could be better! We had a lovely holiday.”

Goldingay Family, August 2016

“Albert's Cottage is by the far the best cottage we have stayed in. Although small we did not feel at all cramped at any time (there were 2 adults and 2 children), it is cosy and so well equipped with quality furniture and fittings - beds were amazingly comfortable. The little seating area/patio garden is a sun trap. Location is perfect and although right in the centre of Wells and just off the main street, was incredibly quiet. We visited in August and were able to park for free each day in the adjoining road. Perfect cottage to visit Wells and amazing towns and villages nearby.”

Shaw Family, August 2016

Our forth stay at Albert's Cottage and look forward to the next. Most items supplies in the cottage to make a pleasant stay. A delightful cottage, conveniently situated for the shops, cafes pubs and resaturant. A few minutes walk from the key and Butlands for the Hopper buses to take you around the coast.

Woodward Family, June 2016

Very clean cottage, close to everything we needed and lovely comfy beds! We travelled all along the coast on the Coast Hopper buses and walked down to the key most evenings, so peaceful. Sad to be going home and leaving this lovely coastline, thank you Alberts Cottage and thank you Norfolk.

Albert's cottage is a cosy , comfortable and perfectly situated cottage for the shops and quay.

Very cosy and welcoming little cottage so convenient for the shops and harbour - perfect! We had everything we needed here including great weather! The little back garden is a real sun trap so lots of breakfasts outside this week! Thank you for taking such care in creating a delightful place to stay - hope to come back if we can get booked in to your busy schedule!!

Marshall Family, April 2016

This little cottage couldn't be handier for the shops, pubs and restaurants and only a minutes stroll to the harbour front.The location is nice and quiet, in fact you wouldn't really know that you are in the centre of town as it's so peaceful. The cottage itself is kitted out with all that we needed with very nice bed linen (Egyptian cotton) and the towels are lovely and fluffy so in a nutshell,,there is nothing that the cottage hasn't got.The little freezer (and washing machine)in the outhouse behind the property were very useful too. We have stayed in several cottages in Wells over the years and although all were very good and we had no complaints, we will be returning to Alberts' as it is now our first choice
