About the property

Cottage in Wells-next-the-Sea, North Norfolk, England - Very close to harbour.

Grey Goose Cottage is a delightful fisherman's cottage which sleeps 3 in 2 bedrooms. Fully centrally heated and completely redecorated this year, the house has a wonderfully sunny, south facing enclosed courtyard in which to relax with a glass or two, after a busy day on the beach. Downstairs the cottage comprises of a sitting room and kitchen with dining room table and upstairs there are two bedrooms (one with a glimpse of the sea!) and a light and airy family bathroom. There are books, games, toys and wifi. The house is dog friendly. Grey Goose Cottage is situated within minutes of the Buttlands where there are fantastic award winning gastropubs. Wells Quay is a few yards away where you can watch the local fishermen bring in their catches and children can have great fun fishing for crabs off the 'Albatros' clipper boat. We are also delighted to see a new ice cream parlour which has opened at the bottom of the street just before you reach the playground. From the harbour you can take the miniature steam train down to Wells beach with it's brightly painted huts and if you are lucky, spot a seal or two. There is so much to do here from sailing and bird watching to enjoying the outdoor cinema at Holkham. The Chocolate Deli in Walsingham is also worth a visit especially for their fantastic chocolate making workshops. Wells Carnival in August and the Pirate Festival in September are also great fun. There is wonderful Christmas shopping in the area too. Burnham Market has some fantastic shops and Christmas is celebrated with pretty lights and a skating rink on the green. Father Christmas arrives in Wells Quay by boat, under a display of fireworks at the beginning of December which is quite magical.

We also have Grey Seal Cottage in Wells 8172238 and The Boat House in the Norfolk Broads 1803562

About Jane Wilson

Grey Goose Cottage is owned by Jon and Jane. We live in Norfolk and love coming to Wells with our 3 children and our dog Nelly. We spend many happy hours on the beautiful beach here and enjoy exploring the wonderful North Norfolk Coast. We always leave feeling a lot more relaxed than when we arrived!

Why Jane Wilson chose Wells-next-the-Sea

Wells is fantastic for it's 'bucket and spade' lifestyle. Our children love to wander about the town, buying sweets from the sweet shop, fishing off the quay and swinging off the ropes in the woods next to the beach. Grey Goose Cottage is in wonderful location and is a lovely place to retreat to and recharge the batteries. Nothing beats opening the door to the smell of the sea and the sound of the swifts in the summer!

Cosy and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Grey Goose cottage. It had everything we needed for a comfortable, relaxing stay. We experienced some extremely windy, cold weather and it was nice to be able to return to a warm, comfortable, cosy cottage.

We loved the decor/accessories of the cottage; very home from home. To be able to enjoy a roaring fire was a bonus.

We would definitely recommend this beautiful cottage

I can only add to all the good reviews. Grey Goose is of course in a fab location right in the middle of Wells. In the winter you can park right outside the property but the carpark is just a minute away. It was super clean....the oven was spotless!!! The kitchen is absolutely gorgeous and I spent many a happy hour in there listening to the radio whilst cooking. It has everything you need for straightforward cooking. It’s really warm and cosy. The shower is fab. The bed was really comfy. It’s beautifully furnished. It feel safe and it’s quiet. My sister and I and my little dog stayed for 4 nights and we loved it. There is a fab selection of books to read. The WiFi is very good. A little info about Wells if you’ve never been. It’s has a fab high street with mainly independent shops which is a rare joy! Great butcher and greengrocer, charity shops, lovely arty boutiques, a great hardwear store and endless cafes and fish and chip shops. Highly recommend doing the long walk out to Holkham beach, stop for a coffee at the stall or a beer at The Victoria and then walk back through the forest. The coast hopper bus is simple to use if you are too tired and absolutely everywhere is super dog friendly. Can’t recommend highly enough for a couple or a couple of friends as the smaller room is very small but still very comfy for one grown up.

A clean, quaint cottage in an excellent central location, most enjoyable time. Ate at Delia's NCFC, The Victoria at Holkham and The Fleece, all were fantastic.
