Wells-next-the-Sea  —  a safe haven The Quay The beach & pinewoods Quaint flint-walled streets — quintessentially Norfolk


There is always something to watch at the Quay. You could easily while away half a day or more may be catching crabs off the sea wall with the kids, or sat on the benches watching the birds duck & dive as the world passes by.

There are boat & fishing trips out to sea.

Amble (or cycle, or scoot, or drive) a mile down the beach road and there is mile-upon-mile of sandy beach.  The children will spend all day building sandcastles, paddling, and jumping off the dunes. It is a very safe beach. Adults may walk, or the active work up an appetite with watersports.

Walk back through the magical world of the pinewoods find the bird-hides or the rope-swing. For those wanting to go further there is the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coastal Path.


Listed in the Doomsday Book, Wells derives its name from the many spring wells that used to rise through the chalk.

It was a significant port in the sixteenth century.  It has thrived as a seaport and also a seaside town with a popular beach.  There are narrow rows & alleyway to wander and eateries & hostelries to relax in. The sea air is good for the constitution.

The pace of life in Wells is conducive to relaxation and recuperation.
