Property details

Experience coastal living and book a stay at Fisherman’s Cottage. This lovely little characterful self-catering cottage is centrally located yet quietly positioned and features beams, painted wood, a Norfolk winder staircase and nautical charm, plus best of all it has a sea view.

With its stunning dog-friendly beaches, Fisherman’s Cottage offers a stylish self-catering break in Wells-next the-Sea. Rustic interiors and views of the quay from the second floor make this a wonderful cottage to escape to whatever time of year and equally suited to a single couple, family or two couples wanting to holiday together.

In the height of summer, take in the sun’s rays on the front terrace and relax in the knowledge that you only have a short walk to one of the many pubs and restaurants which populate this vibrant little town. With so much to do, don’t forget that you literally have one of the best beaches on your doorstep. Wells beach is unique and is a photographer’s dream with its pine forest and quirky beach huts.

Surrounding local area

Don’t forget to head to Wells Deli on the quay for picnic fayre for a day on the beach, or for the best pancakes along the coast, climb aboard The Albatross where you can enjoy Dutch pancakes for breakfast!
Children and adults will adore gillying (or crabbing) from the quay and you will love watching the children excitedly count their catch before returning them to the sea.
With the best fish and chips on the coast and fresh sea food from the quay, Wells is a perfect place to enjoy a short break or longer stay any time of the year.
The beautiful little seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea sits in the middle of the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
An amazing area to cycle, walk in and explore the local wildlife, you won’t find a nicer town to stay.
Shop till you drop in the Staithe Street, the little high street that joins the lower and upper parts of the town together, dine at The Crab House if you love fish, head to The Crown Inn on The Buttland’s for fine dining or their good bar menu, have breakfast or morning coffee or afternoon at Bang! In Wells, or call in for a freshly brewed and ground coffee at Grey Seal Coffee on the harbour.
With so many places to eat and dine in Wells, we are limited by space but there is literally something for every taste.
Head to Holkham Hall, deer park or beach to explore the agricultural heritage of this coast or visit Blickling Hall or Felbrigg Hall for a day out.
Trendy Burnham Market offers more retail therapy or explore nature at Pensthorpe or any one of the NWT or RSPB nature reserves nearby.
For adrenalin junkies there is sailing, paddle boarding, kayaking.
If you are looking to the ultimate beach and escape, take a boat from Burnham Overy Staithe to Scolt Head Island, you won't find a more beautiful place than that.

An absolutely wonderful 4 day stay in Fisherman's Cottage - didn't want to leave. Tips in the welcome folder spot on. Managed to spot seal pups on Brancaster beach after walking from the White Horse. Very comfy bed. Loved the sound system and Now TV. Would love to visit again. Thank you.

Top notch cottage with very good finishing. Excellent location in town, and within a 25 - 30 minute walk to the beach. No parking in season, but we managed to park at local car park at a reasonable rate. Stairs are quite steep so wouldn’t be suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet.

Cosy and stylish. We are a family of four, and stayed at the Fisherman’s Cottage over a rainy Easter week. The cottage is warm and cosy, and location couldn’t be better, right on the Quay, and within minutes of delicious fish and chips!
The cottage is stylish with huge soft beds, a roll top bath, warm blankets and a wood burning stove. Be aware though that as an old building, the stairs are extremely steep, not for small children or anyone with mobility issues perhaps.
The owners kindly left us a great hamper to enjoy after our journey, much appreciated!
