About Wells-next-the-Sea

Wells-next-the-Sea is situated on the North Norfolk coast, midway between Hunstanton in the West and Sheringham in the East. Located in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty Wells-next-the-Sea is an ideal location for walking, bird watching or experiencing a traditional seaside holiday. The National Trust bird reserve, at Blakeney Point, and the Peddars Way coastal path are a short distance away.

The historic town of Wells’ distinctive landmark is the granary with its overhanging gantry on the quay. It has a maze of narrow streets with shops and cafes, pubs and places to eat, all built around the picturesque harbour which has a long maritime history both as a port and as home to its own fishing fleet. More recently its modern role is a marina for pleasure craft and base for the Sheringham Shoal wind farm.

The stunning dog friendly beach with rows of traditional beach huts is a mile from the main town and can be reached by walking along the scenic beach bank, by taking a trip on the narrow gauge railway or by car. Whilst most of the beach and pinewoods are dog friendly, there are some areas which are designated dog free and you should always ensure that you walk your dogs on the dog friendly part of the beach.

The beach  is backed by dense pine woods, which are also extremely dog friendly, and is managed by Natural England in partnership with Holkham Estate.

The main shopping area can be found on Staithe Street, but prior to the 1960’s commercial premises were also found along the High Street which leads south towards St Nicholas’ Church. The church was rebuilt after a lightning strike raised it to the ground in 1879. John Fryer (Royal Navy officer) who was Captain William Bligh's sailing master on HMS Bounty was born in Wells, and is buried in the churchyard.

The town is very dog friendly with all of the pubs and inns welcoming both you and your dogs, the cafés are also dog friendly with some of them providing treats for your dog while you enjoy your break.

In the centre of the town is a large green, ringed by lime trees, which is known as The Buttlands. Down the hill at its south-west corner you can see Ware Hall, which was rebuilt over a period of years from the 1970s by Miss May Savidge, who brought it in parts when she moved from Ware in Hertfordshire.
