Overview

About the property

2 bed cottage in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea, walking distance of beach.

Located on the historic high street, Elgin Cottage is just moments from the shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants, 450 yards from the bustling harbour and an easy walk (or v short drive) to the beach. Perfect for a family holiday or a get together with friends it provides the ideal base to explore this stunning area of North Norfolk. The cottage is full of character and furnished to a high standard. The building is on three floors. Downstairs is a well equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room with a fold-out dining table. A door from the kitchen leads to the courtyard garden. Stairs from the living room lead to the master bedroom with views over the High Street. A bathroom with a shower is also on this level. Stairs accessed via a door from the master bedroom lead to a large room with three beds, tucked away at the top of the house. A door from the kitchen leads to a courtyard garden and an outbuilding with a washing machine and tumble drier, toilet and electric shower.

Please note that access to the second bedroom is via the master bedroom. Although the cottage sleeps 5, please bear in mind that the living room is not large, so up to 4 is the ideal number. Families of 5 are very welcome but it is probably not ideal for 3 older children (i.e. teenagers).

NB We are very happy to do short breaks out of the main holiday season, but please ignore the quote Owners Direct give you as they just divide the weekly rate by seven and multiply by the number of days. It doesn't take into account extra cleaning and laundry costs. Please send an enquiry and we will provide a quote. All rates are listed on our website at www.elgincottage.co.uk

Very cosy, and easy for a family to use

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, well placed (we were attending a wedding in Holkham. Super comfy beds. Our children (aged 6 and 3) loved being in the top room, which has the sensible precaution of a gate. Thoughtful provision of equipment. It all worked for us very well.

Lovely cottage in the heart of Wells

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas at Elgin cottage. The cottage is easy to find and is in close proximity to local shops and restaurants. The cottage had everything we needed and the mince pies and wine on arrival was a lovely welcome.

We'd definitely recommend this cottage and would love to return in the summer.

Thank you :)

Wells-next-the-Sea
Car: recommended

Coast/Beach:

The bustling harbour is 450 yards away. Wells has a beautiful wide sandy beach with colourful beach huts set against a backtrop of pine trees and sand dunes. Either drive, take a walk from the harbour or catch the miniature steam train (very popular with children!). The stunning beach of Holkham is just 2.5 miles away.

Travel:

A car is ideal to allow you to explore this beautiful area of North Norfolk. There is a frequent Coast Hopper bus that runs along the coast road so it is easy to walk to other places and bus back or just visit other places without using the car

By bus

Services run from King's Lynn, Norwich, Fakenham and Sheringham.

By train

The nearest train station is at Sheringham - larger stations with main line connections are located at Norwich and King's Lynn.

Distances:

Wells-next-the-Sea beach - 1.5 miles

Holkham Hall (beautiful beach and magnificent estate) - 2.5 miles

Cley-next-the-Sea (pretty village and wonderful birdwatching) - 10 miles

Seal trips at Blakeney point - 6 miles

Pensthorpe nature reserve (featured in BBC's 'Springwatch') - 12 miles

Sandringham Estate - 20 miles

Titchwell Marsh RSPB Reserve - 12 miles

Wells and Walsingham Light Railway - 0.6 miles

Sheringham - 17 miles

Further Details:

Staithe Street with a plethora of local independent shops and cafes is just moments away. Around the corner from Elgin Cottage is the Buttlands, a quiet green lined with lime trees and elegant Georgian and Victorian houses. The name originates from the days it was used for archery practice. It is now home to The Crown Hotel, a former coaching inn from the 16th century, and the recently renovated Globe Inn - both fabulous places to eat and drink.

You will be spoilt for choice for things to do in this beautiful part of North Norfolk. It is a wonderful destination whether you're looking for a family holiday, or a place to unwind and relax. From birdwatching to building sandcastles on some of the country's most beautiful beaches, bracing coastal walks to visiting stately homes, there is plenty to do and explore and Elgin Cottage provides the perfect base!
