Property details

This Grade II listed 1850's former grocery and provisions store has been beautifully converted into a super, light and bright contemporary ground floor apartment with easy access to the Quay and beach.

The Old Store is a lovely seaside bolt hole. Stylish and comfortable, it is ideal for a small family, couples or friends looking for a convenient base from which to explore and enjoy this popular seaside town. The apartment has a generous open plan sociable living space, two bedrooms (a king size and twin), a bathroom as well as a cloakroom, a private fully enclosed, sunny courtyard garden, and a private parking space. The Old Store has a welcoming and relaxing feel as soon as you walk through the door, and the well-equipped accommodation has been thoughtfully planned to ensure you have everything you need for a wonderful holiday.

Park your car, and you may well not need to use it again until you go home! Everything you need for the perfect holiday is within walking distance - some fantastic places to eat, an interesting collection of independent boutiques and galleries, as well as a superb butcher, fishmonger and bakery for when you prefer to dine in. The bustling picturesque Quay is only a few minutes' walk and you can reach stunning Wells beach in another fifteen minutes - this dog-friendly sandy beach, with its colourful array of beach huts, is well-worth the effort. If you are tempted to wander further afield, the Coasthopper bus stops nearby and will take you to all the neighbouring coastal villages along this beautiful coastline.

The Old Store 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

Really enjoyed the stay in this well maintained, clean & tidy accommodation. Garden brilliant being enclosed/secure and tastefully completed to be able to sit and relax in the sun & evening too. Home from home care and attention! The only one minor thing to mention, which is nothing when compared to the overall experience, is a lack of storage for food etc, however if the intention is to eat out then no probs. Would let be to stay again:-)

Great location for getting around the Wells & Holkham area with lovely walks from the door - we didn't use the car all weekend. We ate at the Globe every evening as enjoyed the menu & very dog friendly. The property itself was spacious & clean & well equipped. Beds were very comfortable. We would definitely return. Don't be put off by the exterior as inside it's a little gem.

Super stay we all had here at The Old Store, facilities were great, very clean and tidy. We have a 6 month old golden retriever called 'Angus' it was his first holiday with us and our young family, a four year old and 9 year old. The beach was super, we went into Hunstanton and Blakney on adventures. We went crabbing and jogging on the sands. We visited the pancake boat after spending hours in the arcade with the children. Super quality holiday and relaxing time had by all.

Had a lovely break in this wonderful apartment. Spent time in Holkham but mainly in Wells - which we love. Great meal in The Golden Fleece. Also sampled the Chinese takeaway- pretty good. Pancakes on the Albatross- delicious! Would definitely recommend Wells and The Old Store to anyone.

The Old Store has not let us down one bit! We have spent four fabulous days in North Norfolk. Leo our bearded collie has been spoilt by locals and made feel very special. Wells Crab House was excellent. Leo enjoyed his ride on the Sheringham to Holt steam train. Beautiful cottage and location would highly recommend to friends and family. We have stayed all over the country in dog friendly cottages and we all agree yours has been the best.

A lovely weekend away - my husband and I love Wells-Next-the-Sea and wanted to go away for a long weekend to explore the North Norfolk Coast with our one year old cocker spaniel Alfie. The Old Store was ideal, a home from home, had everything you needed and was very cosy. Ideally located, walking distance to the town, sea front, pinewoods & beach. The Old Store is ideal for couples & families. We will definitely be back.

Thank you for letting us stay at The Old Store, fantastic accommodation in an ideal location. We had a couple of bracing walks through the pinewoods and along the beach, our cocker spaniel Alfie loved it and then back to The Old Store to warm up with a cup of tea whilst watching a movie. Had a couple of lovely meals at The Globe and The Crown, batteries now recharged and cobwebs blown away. We would love to have the opportunity to come back and enjoy all over again.

We have had a brilliant weekend at The Old Store. A great location within easy access to all we needed- hardly used the buggy for the toddler and had baby in the carrier. 'Season' restaurant was incredible, really recommend. The place is very baby friendly with all we needed- highchair was just like home. Thank you so much.
