Quayside Lookout holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-sea is a charming, traditional seaside town with sandy beaches protected by a pinewood forest. 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. Bicycle hire is available on the quayside. Great local pubs include The Crown Inn, The Globe and The Victoria at Holkham.

Guest reviews

Lovely apartment in a fantastic location. Loved watching the seabirds, the comings and goings in the harbour and the queue of walkers to the beach.

Our third holiday in the Lookout. It's been wonderful. The view and the sounds in hales, hail and torrential rain are fantastic. Hope to be back next year.

Fantastic Outlook. Close to places to eat and drink, shops, and the parking place is a bonus. However, still a very peaceful spot and the apartment is well equipped with everything you need. The beach is 1 mile and the ever-changing tides and boat activity makes it an ideal place to stay. Have been here twice now and it is brilliant

A lovely flat in an excellent location...it exceeded our expectations! A comfortable, tastefully-decorated flat with fantastic views. Great parking, walking distance to all facilities in town. We had a fantastic week here discovering Wells and the surrounding area.

Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in an excellent location with lots of things to do. Superb Norfolk weather helped to make it extra special.

Excellent location and accommodation. Very pleased with our experience on our first visit to Quayside Lookout, so much so that we have reserved the flat for next year. The flat being 4 years old this year is very well presented and the availability of Freesat TV and an Internet hub is a bonus for holidaying here. The price we paid for the week in early May was the most we have ever paid for holiday accommodation along the North Norfolk coast and doubtless reflects that holiday let’s in Wells with sea views are very limited. Quayside Lookout is well located for access to most facilities. We particularly liked it because we spend a lot of time in our holiday accommodation and the ever changing sea view added to the enjoyment of being in such an excellent and well equipped flat.

The perfect Wells apartment. Even if the weather is poor, the views from the flat are wonderful. The tidal landscape is always changing and the skies are dramatic. The flat is well equipped, comfortable and immaculately presented. We're returning next year for our fourth visit.

Our yearly holiday - we think it speaks for itself, the fact that this is our fourth year at Quayside Lookout, its not a cheap holiday but we love it, the apartment is excellent with everything you need, the views are breath-taking, we always have felt that its like home from home, we park up and don't use the car again until we go home, we use the coast hopper bus, it takes us to all the places we love to visit, we never realised how beautiful the Norfolk coastline was until we moved here, we simply don't think about going anywhere else, it suits us, so we think that just about sums it up.

This is our third year, and you never get used to the view, as you walk in, it takes your breath away, lovely place, lovely location, the apartment is always clean and tidy, it's like home from home, as I suffer with anxiety we don't travel too far from home, so it's just right for us, we have our own parking space and just use the coast hopper, it's great, so yes next years booked and ready to go, thanks so much.

Excellent location with ever changing views. Well placed for plenty of walks and wildlife spotting. Good range of pubs etc for eating out..

Judith Stocks, April 2017

This is our second stay at the Quayside Lookout and we are about to book for a third.. The apartment is comfortable, stylish, and well equipped and maintained. The location is unbeatable. It's difficult to drag oneself away from the balcony as the seascape alters by the hour, with tides ebbing and flowing, constantly changing light, varied birdlife and the activities of the fishing boats moored on the quay. Highly recommended.

Brierley Family, March 2017

We’ve been coming to this area for many years and have enjoyed every moment of this week in this perfect location. The Lookout is exceptional and a perfect spot for a relaxing week. Wonderful views and we’ve spent time just watching the tides and the fishing boats. Lovely walks on the coast path. Superb food and drink. What more could we want ?

“This was our first visit to Norfolk and we were not disappointed. The property was superb and could not have been better placed. It was a joy to come back to after a busy day out and perfect to walk back out later to one of the excellent pubs or to pick up very good fish and chips. A fair bit of time was spent watching the very hard working fishermen returning in the evening with their catch and then cleaning their boats down ready for the next day. This we could do from the comfort of our lounge with amazing view. The main reason for visiting this particular time of year was to take a boat trip to see the grey seals and their pups which was fantastic. A great weeks weather meant that long walks were very enjoyable with Brancaster beach being our favourite. We shall return and will probably book the same property.”

By far THE best apartment we have stayed in. Well equipped and comfortable with the added attraction of a superb view. It is not called the “Lookout” for nothing !

Our arrival at this lovely apartment with its unique view took our breath away. We even had a resident cormorant below fishing at low tide. We’ve enjoyed our stay immensely. Many thanks.

Of the numerous holiday lets we’ve stayed in on the North Norfolk coast this was hands down for views, weather and boat watching and the activities on the Quayside whilst being able to enjoy a glass of wine on the balcony. Beautiful apartment – thoroughly enjoyed.
