Property details

The Boat House is a well-presented modern town house ideally located within a few minutes stroll of Wells quayside.

The accommodation is very comfortable with a spacious sitting room and a separate snug, with games console and table tennis - ideal for children. There are lovely views towards the pinewoods and sea from the upper floors.

Wells-next-the-sea is a charming, traditional seaside town and is home to expansive sandy beaches, protected by a pinewood forest and decorated with the biggest blue sky on a kindly sunny day. Stroll to the beach at Wells and along to the highly commended Holkham Beach (awarded Best Beach in Britain) and discover the famous beach huts parading themselves in such a fabulous location! Or, just meander through the pretty Georgian streets, browsing the independent shops, stocking up on old fashioned sweets, sample some sumptuous goodies from the local deli or sample traditional fayre at one of the many cafes or local inns. A visit to Wells wouldn’t be complete without trying your luck at a spot of crabbing on the quayside. Or just simply relax and watch the world go by whilst enjoying the best fish and chips around. Bicycle hire is available on the quayside. Holkham Hall, surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland, is less than a mile away.

Guest reviews

We spent a very enjoyable week at The Boat House for a 3 generation family holiday at the end of August. The house itself was very well appointed - especially the kitchen and games room, which made cooking for 6 and keeping the kids entertained really easy. On the one wet day we had, coming back to the house after a pub lunch we settled in to play several of the board games provided. The table tennis table also proved a big hit as well. The house was a great base for Wells - only a few minutes walk from the harbour, and we had no problem parking two cars at the back of the house. Would thoroughly recommend this property to others.

The Boat House is well equipped with good quality fittings and furnishings. It is ideally located a few minutes from Wells town centre and about half an hour walk from the beach.

Thank you for a lovely stay at The Boat House. Had all the equipment that you could possible want. The welcome pack of goodies
just fantastic, especially the fizz. The location is excellent just off the quay, and very close to all the shops, pubs and eateries.

We all had a wonderful week in The Boat House in Wells and would strongly recommend the property for a family/couples holiday. Great place and great location.

Family weekend break. We booked The Boat House for a family get-together (6 adults & 19 mth old grandson) for 23rd March. The location is great - just as short walk to the harbour; the accommodation has everything a family needs and the "welcome items" were a nice touch. We have been recommending The Boat House to family & friends for future stays as it - and Wells is a super base for exploring the coastline.

"We had a great week here. The house is excellelent and the boys loved the table tennis and wii games for the first time we have seen seals at Wells beach, and the boys loved the little train to get there. We hope to come again!"

"A wonderful week, the weather has been kind. We saw seals on Wells beach, toured Holkham on foot, then another day on our bikes. We cycled to Stiffkey stores alonf the Norfolk coast path. We ate at both fish and chip places but preferred 'Frenchs. We had pancakes on board the Albatross and the children enjoedthe great selection of treats at the bakery. Croissants and pan au Chocolat. The children liked hot chocolat at the raggedy hat. We liked coffee and tea at the grey seal."
