Property details

Driftwood is a first floor apartment (lower two windows in main image) close to the the Quay in Wells-next-the-Sea. The apartment has been superbly furnished and designed with attention to every detail. The owners have used contemporary fittings and quality linens, making it a comfortable place to holiday.

With two bedrooms (a king-size and a twin) Driftwood is ideal for couples, families or friends who want to take advantage of this enviable location. The apartment is a perfect base from which to explore Wells, being close to the Quay, and has the added benefit of allocated parking.

Children love Wells for its many amusements, crabbing from the Quay, its boating lake and beach hut lined sands - a day at the beach can be easily filled and it is often a favourite spot for families.
The Wells to Holkham walk, either via the beach or pine woods, takes you through a North Norfolk Area of Natural Beauty and is a great thing to do at any time of year. You can stop at The Victoria at Holkham for a drink and snack before either walking, or catching the Coasthopper bus service, back to Wells.

Driftwood holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-Sea is one of North Norfolk’s popular coastal destinations, offering visitors a wide variety of ways to while away the hours either exploring the vast beach or the town. Formerly a major port for the export of grain, its harbour is now used by smaller craft offering fishing cruises and boat tours. The Albatross, found on the Quay, is a former Dutch cargo ship built in 1899 as a North Sea clipper. One of the oldest sailing ships still afloat, instead of sailing the high seas, she is now permanently moored alongside the Quay and used as a bar, restaurant, music venue and B&B.
The Maltings, which re-opened in 2018, is a major new cultural hub providing the town with arts and entertainment (art and craft exhibitions and films, including NT Live ballet, opera, theatre). So much to see and do, and that's before you have even got to the beach.
The town offers a wide selection of places to eat, whether it's just a snack or something more substantial. Worth a mention are The Crown and The Globe, both of which are on ‘The Buttlands’ and excellent gastro pubs. For a taste of locally caught seafood, the Wells Crab House Cafe or French's fish and chips are hard to beat.
From the picturesque harbour you can either walk (around twenty minutes) or take the narrow-gauge railway or car to the town's most spectacular beach, renowned for its colourful beach huts and sands stretching as far as the eye can see. This beautiful coastline is a top destination for walkers, bird watchers and seal trip excursions, not forgetting catching crabs, the local favourite activity.
With the spectacular country estates of Holkham, Sandringham and Blickling just a short drive away, Wells provides year round enjoyment for all ages.

Guest reviews

A lovely warm ''hideaway.'' A beautiful flat with plenty of room to relax, well-equipped, and just a very short walk into Wells itself. It was great to return after a day spent walking in the cold, rain and wind to such a lovely warm apartment - it had everything we wanted including wifi (some of us still had to work while we were away!).

We stayed in Driftwood for 4 nights and it was absolutely beautiful! It was the week before our little girls 1st Birthday as well as her first time to the seaside! The location was perfect, only a short walk to the shops and a lovely walk to the beach! We could not fault the apartment and our little loved it so much she hid my shoes when we were leaving haha!! We are already looking to plan our next visit! We all had the best nights sleep thanks to the super comfy beds which was an added bonus! Thank you
