There is a sweet enclosed courtyard garden to the rear, which can be accessed independently of the cottage from the passageway between Star and the next door cottage (ideal if you would like to store bikes in the back garden). The cottage has lovely views from the rear over the playing field and to the pinewoods, lifeboat station and sea beyond. These are maximised from the first floor deck, which is accessed via a spiral staircase from the garden and has a contemporary glazed balustrade, meaning that the view can be enjoyed to its full while sitting on the deck. There is garden furniture.

Parking is to the front of the cottage on the street. There are no parking restrictions so cars can be parked for the duration of your holiday to the front of the cottage. There is also a large long stay car park within a very short walk of the cottage and weekly permits can be purchased from North Norfolk District Council (these are valid in many of the main council car parks along the coast).

Star Cottage 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

I picked Star Cottage because it was dog friendly and was in a superb location. It was lovely to be able to go out without using the car. Luckily we were able to park on the street outside the cottage.

Very good position, very close to harbour and shops. The cottage is very spacious but stairs are very steep. Lovely place to stay.

The cottage is lovely and outside space is fantastic. 1st time in this cottage, the best we have had in Wells. Thanks for the beach hut, it was great and the view is wonderful. Huge thanks for everything.

A great place to stay. Having been coming to Wells for many years and having stayed in a variety of different accommodation, it's always lovely to be surprised by a new place. The cottage was lovely and perfectly suited to a large or smaller family. The two outside areas are a real bonus as you can ensure both privacy and comfort when outside and my 4 year old son loved the excitement of going into the bedroom from the top deck. The communal space is ideal and everyone can comfortably sit together, dine together and not feel squashed; bedrooms are spacious and very comfy with bathroom/toilet facilities almost for each. The location is one of the best things, as you're able to walk to the town or the beach easily. A great place to stay, would definitely recommend to anyone.

Lovely atmosphere in the whole cottage. Comfy beds, lovely views and great to have outside space. Central enough, but separate, too. We would definitely come back, a great place to have fun and relax. Thank you.
