Property details

A very attractive detached character house in a super elevated and peaceful location, with a pretty cottage garden and, what everyone wants in Wells, a parking space!

Tusker House has been a much-loved family home for many years. Recently updated, the house still has a very warm, welcoming and homely feel and will particularly appeal to families but is also perfect for couples and friends to enjoy. Furnished with an easy mix of family heirlooms and modern furniture, the house is a comfortable and relaxing place to be. Downstairs you are spoilt for choice with three reception rooms - a sitting room with open fire and french doors to the garden, a dining room and a snug/children's TV room. The well-equipped modern fitted kitchen is a new addition to the house and overlooks the garden.There's also a shower room on the ground floor - very handy for dealing with small sandy people after a day on the beach! Upstairs there are four bedrooms (two doubles, a twin, and single) and a family bathroom. The charming enclosed garden is at the back of the house. At the bottom of the garden is an off road parking area where there is space for one medium sized car.

From the house, you are only a few minutes' level walking distance to the centre of this ever popular seaside town, with its bustling quayside, independent shops, cafes and some great gastro pubs. It's just a five minute walk to the Quay and from there you can reach Wells beach in another ten to fifteen minutes. It's well worth the walk - this is one of the most stunning beaches and stretches as far as the eye can see. Bliss!

Tusker House holiday cottage location

Surrounding local area

Wells-next-the-Sea is a bustling seaside town located in the centre of North Norfolk and right next to Holkham beach, often voted the best beach in the UK which you can walk to at low tide, although Wells beach must come a close second! Meander up the narrow Staithe Street to browse the numerous independent shops which cram this little town, or hop on the little train down to the beach. Lined with over two hundred beach huts, Wells beach itself is perfect for families with its white, soft sands and dunes which is backed by a glorious pine forest. Being so vast you are sure to find a quite spot somewhere. Don’t miss 'crabbing' from the quay (you will enjoy endless hours of fun with a bucket, bait and line), hot fish and chips from two of the best fish and chip shops along the coast, locally-caught seafood at The Crab House or Dutch pancakes for breakfast (or for lunch or dinner for that matter) on The Albatross moored in the harbour. Looking for something completely different? Then take an Alpaca for a walk on the outskirts of the town. For a lovely day out, head to Holkham Hall where you can explore the splendid hall, museum, parkland, see the deer and wildlife and even take a boat across the lake, before heading down to its famous beach. The Wells and Walsingham Light Railway is the longest narrow gauge steam railway in the world and is well worth a trip. Or jump on the train and take the Poppy Line from Sheringham to Holt, a beautiful market town which is well worth a visit too or drive a little further to Morston or Blakeney where you can take a boat trip to see the seals in their native habitat. Head to Wells Deli or Walsingham Farm shop to pick up some great local produce for lunch or supper, or meander through the town to see what other local delights tempt you! Looking for culture? Then head to Wells Maltings Arts Centre with its seasonal programme and children's activities. This beautiful town won’t fail to disappoint whatever time of year you choose to visit. Further afield you have Houghton Hall, Blickling, Felbrigg Hall to explore and of course the numerous little fishing villages, harbours and wonderful beaches that populate the North Norfolk coastline. And with so many fabulous award-winning pubs, restaurants. delis and cafes within the town itself and just short drive away, you won't go hungry either!
