About Wells-next-the-Sea

Until very, very recently the North Norfolk coast was one of Britain's best kept secrets: stunning views of sea and sky, miles of glorious, unspoilt coast, sandy beaches, and a quality of life that is both unbeatable and affordable.

And right at its Northernmost point is Wells next the Sea: picturesque and full of charming surprises, those who know it return year after year to enjoy its legendary beach, with the iconic mismatch of beach huts set against the pine trees, the astounding choice of gastronomic experiences - from the Crown Hotel's prizewinning restaurant and bar to the best fish 'n chips in Norfolk - and all the friendly bustle of this lively family holiday destination, recently voted by readers of the What Holiday Guide the second best holiday destination in Britain.

And yet, although the world has discovered Wells, one sometimes gets the impression that Wells has not quite come to terms with the world. It still has a working harbour, small fishing community, and a local population which continues in its traditional way of life quite regardless of the arrival and departure of holidaymakers.
