Family gathering

  • 5 of 5

All 9 of us, from the baby to the 70 year old, had a great time at The Pilchard. The property exceeded our expectations, as it was so beautifully furnished and so well equipped for a family birthday. We all loved the sense of style and quality of the furnishings, the spacious kitchen and dining area, the huge comfortable lounge, and the sunrises and sunsets from the windows.

The position in Wells seemed ideal. Close enough to the harbour to go crabbing in the mornings, and easy enough to run back.

Perfect family house

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a wonderful family holiday at the Pilchard. We loved it - really well appointed (and immaculate - looks even smarter than in the photos!). Comfortable beds and great decor, and very convenient location right by the centre of Wells. Annette the owner has been very helpful. Highly recommended.

A long family weekend spent in this lovely property.

The Pilchard was very relaxing and within good walking distance of all that Wells has to offer.

All of the rooms were furnished to a high standard and the kitchen had a lovely big table that we could all fit round for breakfast, lunch, dinner and card games in the evenings!

The showers were some of the best we have ever had in holiday accommodation, powerful with loads of hot water.

We would highly recommend and hope to use again in the future.

Quiet, calm and relaxing..........!! Ah.... until next time.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

The whole of the North Norfolk coast is a haven for bird watchers and walkers and also photographers

Fishing and sight seeing trips can be taken from the harbour and seal trips go from Morston


The Pilchard is situated on the North Norfolk coast which has many beaches.

Wells still has a working harbour where the fishing boats land their catch, and is about a 10 minute stroll.

Wells beach is a beautiful sandy beach with a row of pretty brightly coloured beach huts on stilts and a big blue sky. It is a half hour walk on the flat.

In the holiday months a small train operates from the harbour down to the beach, or alternatively there is a car park near the beach and the Beach Cafe.


We are situated on the edge of Wells which has many pubs, shops and restaurants

The whole of the coast is dotted with lovely flint villages and places to eat

There are many National Trust places to visits

There is a small train station at Sheringham ( half hour drive ) where you can catch the train into Norwich, travelling along the Norfolk Broads

Further Details:

Wells has a butcher, baker, deli's, fishmonger, small supermarkets, doctors, chemist, cottage hospital, chandlers and numerous pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops. There is also a bank and post office.
