Overview

About the property

Amazing views, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, terrace, enclosed garden and parking

This newly-renovated cottage sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms - 2 of which overlook the creek and marshes. The sunny landing has a desk and is a great work/play-space. There is an upstairs bathroom with a shower over the bath and downstairs is a wet room. A boot-room/utility room with ample hanging space houses a large larder-fridge, a small freezer and a washer/dryer. The open-plan living space has a large oak table with benches, sofas and armchairs for 6, wood burner (with a supply of logs), sky tv (family bundle), dvd player and music system. The well-equipped kitchen is separated from the living area by a room divider and features an electric Aga, microwave and dishwasher (but no conventional cooker). Directly opposite the cottage is an idyllic private terrace directly on the creek with tables and chairs. To the side of the cottage is a completely enclosed (and sheltered) walled-garden with more outside furniture. This area is also ideal for storing bikes, pushchairs etc. Opposite the cottage are two private parking spaces.

About Jane Chick

My husband and I live a couple of hours away from Wells-next-the-Sea on the Suffolk coast and we have five grown-up (!) children.

Jane Chick purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Jane Chick chose North Norfolk & Coast

As a child I spent the long 6-week summer holidays camping at Wells with my mum and my brother. They were perfectly idyllic times - no rules, no shoes, chocolate sandwiches for tea and a constantly changing supply of playmates. It has always had a special place in my heart and the rest of my family have had no choice but to also fall in love with it. For many years we have talked about buying a holiday cottage here and when Hampden House came on the market we simply couldn't let it go. We spend as much time here as we can.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is just a couple of minutes walk from the harbour, the pubs and the shops in Staithe Street and it only takes about 20-25 minutes to walk along the sea wall to the beach. East End is a no through road and feels like a retreat from the noise and bustle of the town - Hampden House benefits from the best of both worlds. In 2016 we completely renovated the cottage, changing the layout and maximising the views and the light. We have installed a wonderfully effective wood burner so that the cottage is cosy and welcoming even during the winter months. However, the main feature of this property is its position and the views that change constantly as the tide ebbs and flows. The terrace can be enjoyed all day long and if the wind is just too cold, then we can retreat to the delightful walled garden. Having 2 parking spaces is invaluable in Wells, especially during the summer months.

Perfect place to stay in Wells

  • 5 of 5

As regular visitors to Wells we really appreciated the position of Hampden House with it's stunning views over the marshes and quay. The house has been beautifully renovated and is very comfortable and extremely well equipped. We were fortunate to have lovely weather during our stay and spent all of our days on the beach, perfect!

Fabulous cottage with amazing views

This is the perfect place to stay in Wells. The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished, and the views are spectacular. We didn't want to leave. The owners have taken such care to make sure you have everything you need, we really felt at home from the moment we arrived.

Wonderful holiday.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful week in Wells, the cottage was everything we hoped for, fantastic location, comfortable and tastefully kitted out. We loved sitting on the terrace watching the sunset (on the days the weather permitted!). Highly recommended.

A well presented, clean and warm place to stay with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely welcome from Jane in the form of a bottle of red really set this holiday off to a good start! The weather for the first two days was poor with cold wind and grey clouds. Never mind , we lit the wood burner and enjoyed the ambience!!! This property is sparkling clean, and everything you need is there. The views across the harbour in the morning from the bedroom windows are idyllic and worth the money on their own!! I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone and award it 5 stars!!!!!! Thankyou Jane once again. Bernie and Gill.

Wells-next-the-Sea
Car: recommended

Wells-next-the-Sea is a picturesque and unspoiled seaside town that has a wealth of small individual shops, pubs, restaurants and galleries. Walk along the seawall to the endless sandy beaches, cycle or walk through the pine forests bordering the beach, or fish for crabs from the harbour wall. This area is a bird watcher's paradise and the coastal path runs past Hampden House. Alternatively, you can lie in bed and watch the wading birds on the mud-flats and skeins of migrating geese flying overhead. The attractions in the area include Pensthorpe Natural Park, the grade 1 listed Holkham Hall estate and the fashionable town of Burnham Market.
