About Liz and James Hitchcock

Hebe Cottage is owned by Liz and James. We fell in love with Wells and North Norfolk about 6 years ago and followed our dream of owning a cottage there. We bought Hebe Cottage in November 2014 and have enjoyed furnishing it as well as staying there as we prepare to welcome guests. We have two young children, hence our experience of Norfolk is from a family perspective, however we are looking forward to learning more as the family grow up. We hope you enjoy Hebe Cottage as much as we do!

Why Liz and James Hitchcock chose Wells-next-the-Sea

We chose Hebe Cottage because of its proximity to the stunning beach at Wells.

As a family we have spent a lot of time cycling to enjoy the countryside and visit some of the local attractions. There are a huge number of events taking place throughout the year so it is also worth while checking out what's on before booking.

We are constantly surprised by the quality and number of places to visit; it really is a very special place.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the fact that we can walk to shops, high quality restaurants and even the beach.

The cottage is light and airy with a beautiful outside space meaning that we can enjoy evenings bbq-ing in the sun. It's rare in Wells to find such a secluded space at the heart of the town.

Lovely well located property

  • 4 of 5

I really loved Hebe cottage!! It was light and airy with really good facilities and easy parking nearby and many other places of interest within walkable distance.

My only slight issue was that we couldn't change the temperature of the radiators so had to take a duvet down to the sofa.

Overall though a wonderful place and good value for money compared to similar properties

Location

Coast/Beach:

The Quay is only 420m away, reached along Staithe Street where cafes, shops and restaurants can be found.

The stunning beach fringed with pines and colourful beach huts is located a mile away from the Quay, accessible by car (5mins), on the minature railway or by foot along the sea wall (20mins). The beach is several miles long and a fantastic place to walk, swim and enjoy beach games. The 'big skies' of Norfolk are certainly found here!

Travel:

A car is useful to access many of the local attractions however the Coastal Hopper Bus stops within 50m of the cottage and can be used to visit locations and attractions along the coast.

Distances:

Holkham Hall - beautiful beach, estate, deer park, walled garden and stately home 1.5 miles

Morston Quay, Blakeney - seal watching trips 6 miles

Sandringham - HM the Queen's Norfolk retreat 20 miles

Walsingham - place of pilgrimage 5 miles

Wells to Walsingham miniature railway - 0.5 miles

Cley-next-the-Sea - beautiful windmill, birdwatching 10 miles

Further Details:

Wells has an award winning local butcher, fish shop and bakery all located within a 5 minute walk of the cottage. There are also two small supermarkets, a chemist and many independent shops offering clothing and coastal souvenirs.

You are spoilt for choice when deciding where to eat out. Behind Hebe Cottage you'll find the Buttlands, a green space surrounded by mature trees and many historic buildings including the Crown Hotel and the Globe Inn which are well regarded eateries. Further restaurants and coffee shops are found in Staithe Street and around the Quay including two fish and chip shops.

There is one bank with a cashpoint machine.
