Property details

A peaceful holiday cottage ideally located close to the Quay, with a beautiful walled garden and private parking.

Samphire Cottage is a comfortable detached property situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the centre of town. Decorated in a contemporary and relaxed style, the cottage has a twin bedroom and wet room on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms (king size and double) and a bathroom on the first floor, making it an ideal spot for multi-generational families, as well as couples and friends. The well-equipped breakfast kitchen is open to the hallway and the bright, dual aspect sitting room has a dining area where doors open to the pretty walled west-facing cottage garden. The cottage has gardens to both the front and rear and the rear garden is fully enclosed. Well-behaved dogs are welcome to stay at Samphire Cottage, but are asked to abide by house rules.

A short stroll takes you through to the main shopping street, where you will find everything you need for your holiday as well as some lovely places to stop for a bit to eat or drink. Wander down to the Quay, and watch the fishing boats come in at high tide to unload their catch, or try your hand at crabbing. At low tide, all manner of wading birds will come in search of food in the shallow waters. From the Quay you can walk along the raised sea defence to the beach and wonder at the beauty of this stunning wide open coastal stretch. There is so much to do in this popular seaside town, you might not need or want to venture further afield but, if you do and want to leave your car behind, the Coasthopper bus runs through the town on a regular basis and takes in all the other villages along the coast between Cromer and Kings Lynn.

Samphire Cottage (Wells) 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 - 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.

Thanks for a great stay. Lovely cottage. Excellent location and a very warm welcoming home for the week. The walled garden is perfect for dogs and we have been blessed with fantastic weather so have spent most ofg the week outside. Not bad for the end of October!! Excellent local good (The crab House - very nice!), plenty of ice cream and lovely shops to browse in. We love Wells!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Samphire Cottage.It was very clean with excellent beds and provided bed linen. All the facilities we needed,and a nice secure walled garden for our dogs.Very quiet and yet only a couple of minutes stroll into the shops and Quay areas. I would also highly commend the speedy response of Norfolk hideaways who immediately sent a plumber to replace the failed water heating thermostat. Excellent service.

Lovely cottage gave us the perfect base to relax and explore. Simply the best location, our 3yr old would have stayed in and looked out the window all day if it wasn't for the excitement of the beautiful Wells beach and playpark. Bana in Wells and Golden Fleece very family friendly and a visit to Holkham is a must.

A lovely week. The house was perfect for us. we went crabbing, seal trips and walking the dog. Crabbing was fantastic - caught over 80 crabs! Go to the muddy beach front to catch lots, bring wellies! Thanks for a lovely week.

Samphire Cottage is the perfect holiday property in a fabulous location, Spotlessly clean and thoughtfully well equipped. The cottage was extremely comfortable with lovely high quality furniture and cosy beds. It is in a quiet yet central location, handy for shops and quay. We had a lovely week with great weather. Look forward to returning.

Perfect home from home in a beautiful village. We enjoyed our time in your lovely home. Everything we could have wanted was provided. Everything was spotlessly clean. A perfect base for exploring the local area.
