Property details

A secret little hideaway right in the heart of the town, less than a minute's walk from some lovely shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.

Newgates Cottage, once part of The Chantry and dating back to the 17th century, has been sympathetically refurbished to retain many of the original features, with latch doors and exposed beams throughout. Set over three floors, this charming and peaceful mews style cottage offers comfortable and cosy accommodation for up to five people, and will appeal to families and friends who enjoy the convenience of being able to walk out of the door and find everything they need right on their doorstep. On the ground floor there is a good sized open-plan country style kitchen with adjoining dining area, and a handy shower room. The dual aspect spacious sitting room is on the first floor, along with a king-size bedroom and family bathroom. On the top floor is a triple bedroom with both a double and single bed. Outside there is a small sunny courtyard garden to enjoy.

It's only a five minute walk to the Quay where you can try a spot of crabbing. From here, stunning Wells beach in a further ten to fifteen minute walk (or you can let the little train take the strain). This quaint and vibrant seaside town ticks lots of boxes and offers something for everyone at any time of year.

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 - you can also hose down a sandy dog!
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, 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

Couldn’t be a better position. We really enjoyed our stay at Newgates Cottage. We felt at home straight away and had everything we needed. A short walk from shops, great pubs and restaurants. Will miss our morning coffee in the sunny little court yard.

Homely well equipped cottage. Great place to stay - spacious and close to all amenities. Very well equipped and comfortable. Dog friendly, as are most shops and cafes in Wells which is great. Only down side is rear garden is rather small but no big deal as lots of walks nearby. Will be back.

We had a lovely weekend spent mostly on the beach, in the dunes, sunbathing. Newgates Cottage is so homely that both Lily and I felt very much at home.
