Property details

A lovely old fisherman's cottage just bursting with character and charm only minutes away from the Quay and the heart of this popular seaside town.

Harbour View Cottage is a delightfully cosy and inviting 300-year old fisherman's cottage tucked away in a quite loke set back from the Quay. With beams made from the masts of old fishing boats, original wooden and tiled floors, a reclaimed pantile hearth, latch doors and steep Norfolk winder stairs to both floors, you can step back in time and let your imagination wander to Wells days gone by. But, don't worry, when you drift back to the present, you will find all mod cons, including WiFi, central heating and Sky TV! You can catch a glimpse of the Quay and sea from the bedrooms, there is a lovely sunny and private terraced garden to relax in and the availability of off road parking - on a first come, first served basis. Once you are parked, you don't really need your car, because everything is within walking distance and, if you want to venture further afield, just catch the Coasthopper bus that regularly stops in the town all year round.

This two bedroom character cottage is set over three floors, and a very comfortable and secret hideaway that will appeal to all kinds of holiday makers - families, walkers, bird watchers, couples and friends - at any time of the year.

Harbour View Cottage holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-Sea is a hub for North Norfolk coastal activities. From the picturesque harbour (where crabbing is a must) you can either walk, take the narrow-gauge railway or drive to the spectacular beach with its famous array of colourful beach huts. Stop at the Beach Cafe afterwards for a drink and snack!
Wells has a pretty, leafy green peaceful square,The Buttlands, which is surrounded by fine Georgian buildings. There is a bustling high street with all kind of independent shops, some lovely tearooms and great gastro pubs and restaurants.
This beautiful coastline is a top destination for birders and walkers all year round.
Beautiful Holkham Hall is just down the road.
You can hire a bike from the quayside and spend a day exploring the coastal paths, or perhaps Holkham estate.
And, don't forget to reward yourself after a busy, active day with some of the best fish and chips in the area.

Guest reviews

Me and my fiancé stayed in this beautiful little fisherman’s cottage at the end of September for a week. We was greeted upon entering the cottage with a lovely welcome pack-bread,milk,bacon,butter,eggs,box of maltesers and a bottle of my favourite Wine!!! Fantastic location and had no problems with parking. Had a great week only downside we couldn’t get the heating to work. But this wouldn’t put us of from booking again.

The cottage was ready on time and was a lovely place to stay with my 2 children for a week. I parked the car and left it for the week, with the cottage being ideally located to explore all the amenities of Wells on foot.

Lovely cottage - The cottage is very cosy and comfortable although be warned the stairs are steep. Location is amazing - almost immediately at the beginning of the quay so you are right in the heart of delightful wells. All creature comforts available at the cottage - 2nd visit for me and it was as good as the first. Would recommend.

Harbour View is a very cosy and quirky cottage... You`ll chuckle or weep as you climb the Norfolk winder stairs.., a task even for the most ardent keep fitter..! But that is all part of this great cottage`s character... If you`ve never stayed in Wells-next-the-Sea then try here first as you`ll not be disappointed at all... Very well equipped and well furnished, we thought that the owners had done a great job, also if you do have children with you then there`s plenty for them too, even crab lines in the shed..! It`s in a superb location, only a couple of minutes walk to all the amenities on Staithe Street, baker, butcher, greengrocer all of them selling excellent local produce..!! Enjoy.., we did..!!
