About Penny S
We are relatively new to renting out holiday properties and have just this one apartment. We are Penny, Rob and our three children - Matthew, who is now 20 and studying to be a doctor in London, James 16 and Emma 13. We live in South Norfolk (about 60 miles from Wells) but fell in love with the location of Quayside Court and wanted to be part of the project. It is very important to us that each and every one of our guests has a wonderful holiday!
Penny S purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Penny S chose Wells-next-the-Sea
We were lucky enough to be part of the development of Quayside Court from the very beginning as Rob was involved with the legal work buying the land and obtaining the planning permissions! There is very little scope for new building in Wells and so we could see how exciting this project was going to be. It is truly a wonderful location for modern, luxury apartments and the view is possibly the best in Norfolk!
What makes this Apartment unique
As we have probably mentioned elsewhere, the unique benefit of our apartment, 2, Quayside Court, is definitely the view!! Sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and watch as the tide ebbs and flows; the fishermen bring in their catch and the children go crabbing. It is a bird-watchers paradise and the view is never the same from one minute to the next.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Fabulous position, well equipped and very clean. Spacious flat -could easily live there.

Amazing view of the quay
Very clean, well equipped and laid out
Large, very smart and relaxing space with lovely views.
Great position with wonderful views
Great short break in this lovely apartment, despite the weather! The apartment is very well presented and equipped, the beds are so comfortable slept really well. The tides were extremely high and the windy weather kept us indoors but it was fascinating to watch the sea, luckily there was no flooding.
A great location to stay for our short break. A clean, well presented, comfortable property.
A perfect place for us to stay in the Feb half term. The apartment had great views across the harbour and was central for shops, eateries and the beach! Lovely and clean and with a fully equipped kitchen. We will be back!
The East Anglia region
Wells-Next-The-Sea is a charming English coastal town on the beautiful North Norfolk Coast. It offers all that is traditional: ice-cream, fish 'n' chips, cockles, hungry seagulls, sun, sea and sand but it is so much more; a most interesting and fascinating place. It is charming and picturesque, having lost none of its historical character.
The town is a delightful network of narrow streets, old alleys and yards, and boasts some impressive and interesting architecture. Many of the buildings are hundreds of years old, listed, and include former coaching inns and public houses.
Wander along the sweeping beach bordered by pine woodland, or the gentle harbour with small fishing boats and children playing. Spend an hour exploring the eclectic mix of unique shops on Staithe Street, with not a chain store in sight, and discover the tree-lined park with its fine Georgian houses, quiet pubs and restaurants - Wells is indeed a beautiful and historic seaside resort.
Quayside Court is located in the very heart of Wells, on the quay itself, less than a minute's walk from the newly renovated "Golden Fleece", Staithe Street and The Granary Theatre.
The Dutch sailing barge, The Albatross, is one of the oldest sailing ships still afloat and is now permanently moored in Wells Harbour. It is a bar, restaurant and pancake house with live music on Saturday evenings.
Fishing has been a mainstay of Wells for centuries and it is still the home of several fishing boats. Watching them come and go and unload at the quay is still a great attraction and can be enjoyed from your balcony with a glass of fine wine!
Wells is a thriving resort and certainly comes alive in the summer. Staithe street bustles with shoppers and browsers who are well served by a diverse selection of small and friendly shops selling everything from buckets and spades, books and paintings, to high end clothes and designer gifts.
At the top of Staithe Street lies the Buttlands, a quiet green lined with lime trees and elegant Georgian and Victorian houses. The name originates from the days it was used for archery practice. It is now home to The Crown Hotel, a former coaching inn from the 16th century, and the recently renovated Globe Inn.
A miniature steam train runs from the end of the quay the mile or so to the beautiful sandy beach, which stretches for miles towards Holkham and was featured in the film "Shakespeare in Love". The wide sandy beach is ideal for collecting a variety of shells and marvelling at the bird life. Oyster catchers, ringed plovers, common and littler terns are all regular visitors. With its pinewoods, salt marshes and sand dunes, Wells attracts a rich variety of bird and animal life throughout the year. Wild flowers, rare birds and squirrels can often be seen.
Tucked behind the dunes is Abraham's Bosom, an outdoor leisure area by the side of a natural 5-acre boating lake, where canoes and rowing boats can be hired.
The lifeboat house on the beach is often open to visitors and houses a fascinating collection of items illustrating the history of the Wells lifeboat.
Wells is the perfect base from which to explore the many delights in the area. Holkham Hall, one of Britain's most majestic stately homes, is a 5 minute drive along the coast road or a lengthier walk along the coastal path.
Royal Sandringham is just over 20 miles away.
Drive to Blakeney, only 15 minutes away, and take a boat trip to Blakeney Point, famous for the colony of common and grey seals you can see basking on the sandbanks.
Cley Marshes Nature Reserve, one of the finest bird-watching sites in Britain, is just 10 miles away.
Little Walsingham, a place of pilgrimage since medieval times, is only 5 miles away, linked to Wells by a miniature railway similar to that which links the town and beach.
