THINGS TO DO
(here are some of our favourites)
ACTIVITIES & DAY TRIPS
We think Wells next the Sea has everything you need for the perfect UK getaway. Norfolk is known for its big skies. There are miles and miles of beautiful coastal walks. The beaches are golden sand and most are dog friendly (there are separate areas that are dog free). There are lots of things to do come rain or shine. There is a bus service into Norwich for a spot of shopping, or there is the Coast Hopper which will take you to other attractions along the coast. Wells itself has many lovely restaurants and cafes. The newly built Maltings has a cinema and art centre.
There really is an endless list of things to do in and around Wells; these are just a few ideas.
Norfolk has many beautiful species of birds. If you fancy a bit of birdwatching, even if you’ve never tried it before, why not join a guided tour with an expert. Birdtours is our local tour provider and if you book a tour via Birdtours they will book your accommodation with us. Whether you are a beginner or have some experience, the Birdtours guide knows exactly where to look, when to look and what to look for.
Bring some comfortable shoes! With miles and miles of unspoilt stunning coastlines, walking the coastal path is a must. Breath-taking scenery awaits.
Stand Up Paddle Board Hire, taster sessions & guided tours in along the North Norfolk Coast'. www.northnorfolkpaddleboards.co.uk
A trip to see the seals is also a great day out. www.nationaltrust.co.uk
There are too many to choose from. Sandringham, Holkham Hall, Blicking Hall and grounds, the list goes on. Perfect for a less than sunny day.
We love the old fashioned railway from Holt to Sheringham. Stop off at Sheringham Country Park for the scenery and at certain times of year, the Rhododendrons are beautiful. www.nnrailway.co.uk
The Wells to Walsingham Light Railway, a big day out on the worlds smallest public railway. www.wwlr.co.uk
Day at the beach
Take the dogs, the kids, a picnic (we can supply you with a cool bag) and just enjoy sitting on the beach. Wells beach has an area of water that stays inland and heats up (somewhat) when the sun is out.
PLACES TO EAT
There are a lot of places to eat in Wells; our favourites are The Golden Fleece and the Wells Crab House. Both of which have unrivalled friendly service and gorgeous moreish food and drinks.
Wells Crab House
A small, intimate and informal Restaurant with an ethos to create a friendly, relaxed and welcoming dining experience centred around beautifully prepared local and seasonal seafood dishes. For Gin lovers, a visit to The Wells Crab House is a must. Kelly seeks out unusual gins and the seaweed gin is a must try (with some oysters).
The Golden Fleece
A family and dog friendly pub right on the quay. Enjoy some of the most spectacular views along the North Norfolk Coast across the harbour, over the stunning marshes and out to sea while eating some delicious food.
