B&B in Wells-next-the-Sea
Wells-next-the-Sea, often just shortened to Wells, is 1 of the premier beach hotspots in North Norfolk. Here, all the retro delights of a British seaside resort, like fish and chip shops, amusement arcades and ice cream parlours, sit side by side with a picturesque harbour and streets lined with fine Georgian houses and centuries-old slate cottages. Its biggest draw is, undoubtably, the enormous stretch of golden beach. That's backed by a long row of colourful wooden beach huts, and sweet-smelling pine forests that provide a habitat for rare coastal birds and squirrels. During the summer, the town bursts at the seams with families who come to stay in the Wells-next-the-Sea bed and breakfasts and while away their days on the beach. During the cooler months it reverts to a sleepy fishing town, with time best spent walking along the coast or holing up next to the fireplace in 1 of the cosy pubs.

Some are housed in the handsome brick terraces along the harbourfront, where the traditional decor, original period features and antique furnishings offer luxury from a bygone era of travel. Others are a little more modest, but still offer plenty bang for your buck in their handful of guestrooms. If you'd rather stay outside of town, there are several flint cottages further along the coast, offering views directly over the secluded coves and glistening ocean.

Some go a little further, with personal touches like bowls of fruit or freshly cut flowers waiting in the room when you arrive. In the morning, you can wake up to the sounds of the ocean before heading to the dining room downstairs for a home-cooked full English breakfast. When you're rested up after your beachy break, hop on the train and head for the bright lights of London.
