Visit Wells-Next-The-Sea and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, is a village, a small port and a seaside resort, on the North Coast road, the A149. There are three focal points, the church, the Buttlands and the quay. St Nicholas' Church is the Victorian (1880s) rebuilding of the original church destroyed by fire in 1879, and stands just south of the large green known as the Buttlands, an attractive green lined by trees and surrounded by Georgian houses. The upper end of the green leads to the quay through narrow streets like the “rows” at Great Yarmouth and the “scores” at Lowestoft.
The quay still sees activity with local boats as well as some pleasure craft, but the beach to its north is perhaps more popular nowadays. The little bathing area is about 1 mile from the village and is locally known as Abraham's Bosom, a name which may owe something to its earlier use as a harbour. Only 2 miles to the west is Holkham Hall with the National Trust reserves at Scolt Head and Blakeney some 6 to 8 miles on either side of the village.
