Lantern Cottage 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

Second visit to this very pleasant house during the recent heatwave and it did not disappoint - in very good condition and almost every need catered for within the property. It is excellent accommodation for larger groups and a good sized enclosed garden which is ideal for children. Local supermarket within a two minute walk, plus the very recent welcome addition of a petrol station next to that makes the location of Lantern even better than before. Would certainly recommend.

We weren’t expecting the cottage to be right next to the road but, as it was extremely enclosed, this did not really hamper our spending most of our time in the sunny garden as the weather was glorious. The cottage is very well provided and has everything you will need, location good for a pleasant stroll into Wells and the Coop very handy as nearby.

Great stay in Wells - we had a lovely time staying in Wells, Lantern cottage was in a great location and all the family enjoyed our stay there. The property is very well kept and little touches like leaving us homemade biscuits supplying toilet rolls, dish washer tablets together with tea coffee and sugar etc was an unexpected extra. Our only gripe was the dishwasher didn't clean the crockery properly!

We stayed in Lantern Cottage in Wells next the Sea. Our first time to the North Norfolk Coast and we could not have picked a better location. Plenty of room for family members and child friendly and a really excellent base for exploring the area.
We enjoyed an excellent meal at the Crown and also fish and chips by the harbour which is only a short stroll away from the cottage. Lots of good walking and great if you are into bird watching as plenty of nature reserves nearby Excellent and safe beach for the grand children. We will return.
