About the Owner

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!

Had an amazing time at Hebe Cottage!! Beautifully kitted out and great location!! Thank you :-)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 nights and loved every day staying in the cottage. Everything is that you need is there!! Both bedrooms are spacious enought and having 2 young boys they had their own bed next to each other which worked well. The double bed was very comfortable!! It has an open kitchen with sofa, tv area where you can relax and socialise and a lovely outside area to have a summers drink and dine. Location is perfect in the centre of wells. Only minus point is no parking however I managed to find spaces only a few minutes walk away. There are temporary spaces outside if available. We went to brancaster beach, holkham beach and Wells beach. We know the area very well as have holidayed for the last 6 years. Would 100% go back and book Hebe Cottage.

A charming property

  • 4 of 5

The property offered a town centre location just of the main high street. The property was well equipped and very comfortable. We know the Norfolk coast well so offered a great base to explore the areas around wells next the sea.

We really enjoyed our recent stay in Hebe Cottage. It's a lovely little place, within easy walk of the shops and harbour. The cottage was clean, beautifully decorated and had everything we needed.

A very comfortable and well equipped little cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had a super week at Hebe Cottage with our little grandson (6). The place was very clean and had everything we needed. The weather was marvellous so we got out and about all the time. A great week. We would return.

A better indication of where to recycle glass bottles would be helpful.

Thank you for sharing your lovely cottage.

Very clean, quaint, cosy little cottage situated in the heart of Wells

  • 4 of 5

Me and my two sons thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hebe cottage. Everything you could need was at hand especially in the kitchen area. We all found the beds very comfortable and slept really well. Hebe cottage is very well situated being only 1 minutes walk from The Buttlands and 5 minutes walk from the Quayside. We would certainly consider returning and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hebe cottage to friends and family

Delightful, cosy holiday cottage

  • 4 of 5

Spent a very enjoyable week at Hebe Cottage which was very well equipped and ideally situated within Wells for both exploring the local area on foot and visiting other places within North Norfolk by car. We ate out locally most evenings and all meals were most delicious but would recommend booking as both the bars and restaurants appeared to be busy. We also found the very pretty courtyard garden area with table and chairs an added bonus for enjoying a bit of relaxation in the sun on our return after a day's sightseeing.

Both the booking procedure and information for accessing/vacating the cottage after our stay was very clear and the information provided by Liz and James on parking was also extremely helpful considering how busy Wells gets with all of its visitors!

We will definitely be recommending Hebe Cottage to any friends or family visiting the area .

Location

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

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.

Facilities

From the Owner

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.
