Property details

Holly House is a beautifully refurbished period property situated on the leafy Georgian square 'The Buttlands', in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea, an historic fishing port and popular seaside resort on the North Norfolk coast.

The property has been lovingly renovated in a contemporary and fresh style, with quality bathrooms and kitchen. The ground floor is open-plan providing very spacious accommodation.

On the edge of the Buttlands between The Globe and The Edinburgh, this is a perfect base from which to walk and explore Wells and all its nooks and crannies. Holly House is joined on either side by Holly Cottage (sleeps four) and Holly Lodge (sleeps six). All three are completely self-contained and have private secure gardens which are individually fenced. Booked together they would make an excellent base for larger groups.

Holly House holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-Sea is a popular destination around the year. A charming, traditional seaside town with sandy beaches protected by a pinewood forest.
From the picturesque harbour you can either walk, take the narrow-gauge railway or drive to the spectacular beach.
Stop at the Beach Cafe afterwards for a drink and snack, and perhaps some clothes shopping.
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 kinds of independent shops, some lovely tearooms and great gastro pubs and restaurants. Great local pubs include The Crown Inn, The Globe and The Victoria at Holkham.
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.
This beautiful coastline is a top destination for birders and walkers, and Holkham Hall is just down the road and well worth a visit.
You can hire a bike from the quayside and spend a day exploring the coastal paths, or perhaps talk a walk around Holkham Park with its herds of deer and picturesque lake teeming with wildfowl, adjourning for a well earned bite to eat at The Victoria afterwards.

Guest reviews

Holly House is the perfect place to stay in Wells. It is a comfortable, well equipped house with a safe garden for escapologist dogs! It is within spitting distance of three lovely dog friendly pubs that serve delicious food, so not far to go in the evenings for a decent pint and supper. If you fancy eating in, as we did a couple of times, the kitchen has everything you need to produce a decent meal or there is excellent take away fish and chips or pizza within a 10 minute walk. We had the most wonderful stay and the dogs really enjoyed exploring the beach, pine woods and the rest of the Holkham Estate. Thank you Norfolk Hideaways, we will be back!

This is the second time we have stayed in one of the 'Hollies' , Holly House is spacious, has all home comforts including books, DVDs and games and is in a fantastic location next door to pubs and restaurants in Wells-next-the-Sea.

“Both stays have been excellent. House extremely comfortable. Location superb. Pub and shop close by. A little expensive but well worth the cost.”

“We had a great week. The house was clean and ready for use, beds made up and felt really welcoming. This was our third year so we did know what to expect. It is ideally placed near the shops but with the space of The Buttlands handy. The girls at Norfolk hideaways could not have been more helpful when we had a problem. We loved it and would hope to go again.”
