Property details

Tucked away in a peaceful location on the edge of town, but still only few minutes' walk from the bustling, picturesque Quay and heart of the town, is this lovely secret Norfolk hideaway.

Aptly named by the owners as their relaxing coastal retreat, this brick and flint modern detached house greets you with a lovely air of calm as you walk in the door. Decorated in a low key seaside style, with comfort foremost in mind, The Haven is an ideal all year round getaway. A well-equipped house with three bedrooms (two doubles and a twin) and two bathrooms (one is on the ground floor), it has a spacious dining kitchen with adjoining utility room. The delightful sitting room has year round appeal, with an efficient electric stove to supplement the heating on cooler days and nights and french doors, that lead out into the walled, private south facing landscaped garden, to open on warm sunny days.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a hub for North Norfolk coastal activities. From the picturesque harbour you can either take the mile long walk or ride aboard the narrow-gauge railway to the most spectacular of beaches, framed by scented pinewoods and colourful beach huts. The town is blessed with some fine Georgian architecture, especially around the beautiful Buttlands green at the top of the town where you can enjoy good food at both The Crown and The Globe. The busy main street is packed full of independent shops and cafes, as well as a greengrocer, butcher, bakery and fishmonger, all selling fabulously fresh and local produce. This beautiful coastline is a top destination for birders, walkers and cyclists, and the popular activity of catching crabs and taking boat trips to see the seals. Holkham Hall is just a short drive away, where you can hire bikes for the day and cycle or stroll around its beautiful parkland.

The Haven 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.

Guest reviews

We thoroughly enjoued our week's stay at The Haven. The house is stunning and so well equipped. A fantastic base for exploring Wells and the surrounding area. It has made for a very special week away for my daughter's 10th birthday. Would highly recommend.

I stayed in this house for one week with my husband, two young girls and parents. It is gorgeous! Spacious, clean, wonderful showers, comfortable beds, lovely large sunny garden and a nice utility to dump all our wet towels after a day at the beach. Five minutes walk and you are at the quayside and lovely quiet location. It was so nice to not be cluttered as well - a few choice "ornaments" and nice lamps but no clutter. The owners even provided a couple of games, kids games, kids books, loads of DVDs and a lovely fluffy floor cushion for the kids to chill on. I would definitely recommend and hope to return. We love Wells and this part of Norfolk. {The drive way is quite narrow and steep and we found it difficult to get up at times but I believe this is being addressed}
