We spent seven fabby days at this extremely well presented cottage and never went out of the village during our stay! We have visited the area before and returned to eat Brancaster oysters (the best in the country, and we have tried lots) as well as explore the local area, particularly the beach.
We arrived on a beautiful sunny, crisp winters morning and found an extremely clean and comfortable home for the week. Everything we needed was provided, even biscuits and a bottle of wine! We received very clear instructions before our arrival on accessing the cottage and once there all the information we needed for appliances, heating and places to visit were to hand. We managed to light the real fire every afternoon and watching the flames and listening to the crackling coals was bliss with an early evening glass of wine.
We spent a marvellous week exploring the area on foot and the weather for the first week of December was very kind to us. The actual village of Wells has some very interesting small shops providing everything you could possibly want, most of which were beautifully decorated for Christmas. Staithes Street was hung with colour changing lights zigzagging all the way down to the harbour where three large lighted Christmas trees adorned the harbour. It was quite magical.
Although the cottage provided cooker and microwave, we ate out every night. We would particularly recommend the Wells Crab House where we partook of the lovely oysters and the Bowling Green Inn just 50 yards down the road - great to stagger to after a long hike. Wells Deli on the harbour front was very welcoming for coffee and snacks during the day.
Thank you Jane for letting us into your cottage. We loved it so much we plan to return next year.
really lovely warm and cosy apartment - with all the facilities you need - the view from the lounge is amazing - constantly changing with the tide - always something to watch - really clean throughout and in the best position anyone could ask for - all the pubs shops etc a stones throw away - you don't need a car to go anywhere - the walk to the beach is lovely and again - on the doorstep - cannot fault it - if we come back to wells - we would definately stay here again - thank you
