We’ve just returned from a holiday in North Norfolk…
…Wells-next-the-Sea to be precise.
A lovely coastal town with a busy working harbour, shops and fantastic sandy beach.
We stayed at Sailmakers Barn – a wonderful cottage, full of character, very comfortable and only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre & quayside.
Around the corner from the cottage was The Buttlands, an impressive Georgian square fringed by mature lime trees…
…with gorgeous buildings and dog-friendly pubs at either end!
As you can see from our photos, we had lots of blue skies…
…so spent long days walking, soaking up the sun, picnicking and shopping.
We watched beautiful sunsets, picked strawberries, beach combed and spotted the local wildlife.
We did a lot of al fresco dining – breakfast on our balcony, fish & chips by the quayside, barbecues and relaxed pub lunches.
In addition to Wells, we visited some of the surrounding towns and coastal villages including Blakeney, Cley and Holt. We only scratched the surface – there are lots more places to see, but we’ll just have to save them for our next trip.
It was our first time in the area, but it definitely won’t be the last… we really fell in love with Norfolk!
