Location, location, location! You will be hard pressed to find such a super, stylish little cottage that's got a better view of the Quay than this one. And there's a parking space too. Bingo!
Situated at the far end of Wells harbour, this lovely character cottage enjoys fabulous views from both the kitchen and master bedroom across the Quay towards the marsh and sea beyond. Refurbished in 2018, Creek Cottage has been sympathetically updated and furnished in a low key relaxing style with comfort foremost in mind. There are two bedrooms (double and twin) on the first floor, along with a shower room, and down on the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen/diner, cosy sitting room and a further bathroom. Outside is a small courtyard garden with seating. Perfect for enjoying a relaxing glass of wine or two at the end of a busy day. This bijou cottage is a true delight and is sure to be a very popular holiday choice for families, couples and friends.
At full tide the harbour comes alive with fishing boats unloading their catch and local sailors setting out and returning from a day's sailing. Step out of the front door of Creek Cottage and you are just a two minute walk from the heart of this popular seaside town - Staithe Street, with its eclectic mix of cafes, restaurants and independent shops to browse selling absolutely everything. If you have left something behind, worry not, you will find it here and, if cooking is not your thing, you are spoilt for choice with places to eat. The Maltings, which re-opened in 2018, is a major new cultural hub providing the town with arts and entertainment (art and craft exhibitions and films, including NT Live ballet, opera, theatre). So much to see and do, and that's before you have even got to the beach.
From the picturesque harbour you can either walk (around twenty minutes) or take the narrow-gauge railway or car to the town's most spectacular beach, renowned for its colourful beach huts and sands stretching as far as the eye can see. This beautiful coastline is a top destination for walkers, bird watchers and seal trip excursions, not forgetting catching crabs, the local favourite activity. With the spectacular country estates of Holkham, Sandringham and Blickling just a short drive away, Wells provides year round enjoyment for all ages.
Please note: Creek Cottage has steep Norfolk winder stairs, which might not be suitable for anyone with mobility issues, and little ones may also find them tricky to negotiate. There is a door at the bottom and a stairgate at the top of the stairs.
