I adored the little cottage . the caretaker was very sweet to come out to sort out how to heat the place and tell me how to get the hob alight. he gave me good directions on how to find the cottage from the bus stop, too. I made myself at home completely in the fully equipped kitchen and very much enjoyed wells-next-the-sea. . thank you. Angela from Andover (28 April 2017)
Take towels - bath towels are not provided which we missed in the write up. . great location. We got a season ticket for the council car park which was a few minutes walk away and had no problem parking overnight. . each of the bedrooms is up a separate flight of stairs - think spiral staircase rather than standard. Our preference was for the room upstairs from the dining room - more headroom. James from London (23 April 2017)
Excellent Confirmed Guest (22 January 2017)
We really enjoyed our stay, in fact we have booked again for next month. just a few minor issues: nowhere to hang towels in the bathrooms (a few more hooks on the door would help): no small drinking glasses (for fruit juice): only 5 teaspoons: could do with some more cereal/fruit bowls - there are 5 but some are chipped. a comfy sofa in the lounge would be good, but it would probably not be easy to get one through the narrow doors. internet access would be useful. . . we found the cottage to be nice and warm and clean and the location could not be better. parking is a bit of a problem but nothing can be done about it and we coped ok. thank you. David from Ilkeston, Derbys (04 January 2017)
Super cottage with a great location in a lovely town.. the only downside being no adjacent parking.. not a problem, when staying out of season, [as we did] but I could imagine it being a real issue in high season.. parking aside highly recommend.. Stephen from Ruislip (25 November 2016)
This was our 2nd time at anchor cottage. Great cottage, very central location. Wells is a beautiful place. We will probably be back again! Kathryn from Derby (22 October 2016)
Lovely little cottage in a perfect location. . could do with towels and dishcloth.when I come away now I don't want to bring a bulky towel or run out and get scouters and dishcloths. . carbon monoxide battery had run low and the alarm was going off when we arrived.it was attended to immediately by mr clayton. . beds were comfy and it was very peaceful. Tracy from Rickmansworth (05 October 2016)
Excellent cottage, position and amenities very modern equipment just requires full length mirror in bedroom (preferably harbour side) thank you for a pleasant experience Geoffrey from Mansfield (16 September 2016)
Privacy should be improved by the installation of bedroom doors.broadband would also be an asset in this day and age. Overall the cottage was very comfortable and very conveniently located. Would definitely go again and have no hesitation in recommending to others. Michael from Nottingham (08 July 2016)
Loved being bang in welles next the sea. Niamh from London (30 May 2016)
Great cottage but could do with a larger sofa or 2 sofas as it would be very more comfortable if there are 4 of you staying in the cottage. it is a lovely place to stay very central to everywhere. would definitely stay again. Confirmed Guest (14 March 2016)
The cottage was as described, ideal for two couples. Jean from Warwick (05 March 2016)
Lovely cottage in a perfect location. Only thing that would be nice is doors on the bedrooms to keep the warmth in but other than that it is a perfect cottage with a lovely log fire. Lovely for a romantic weekend can't wait to stay there again. Jo from Romford (30 November 2015)
A lovely cottage which is ideal out of season when parking is less of a problem. Margery from Reading (30 October 2015)
Great stay at anchor cottage. Superb location, well equipped and cosy house. would recommend. Eleanor from Waltham Abbey (29 August 2015)
Excellent holiday ideal location just missed wifi and parking Mark from Carlisle (08 August 2015)
A good location with views of the sea, only down side is not having parking. David from Colchester (10 July 2015)
Excellent - just the oven that desperately needs a professional clean! Rob from Wraysbury (13 June 2015)
Lovely ! sadly sofa in sitting room not comfortable but otherwise very good! Judith from Sheffield (15 May 2015)
Outstanding stay in wells and anchor cottage. Beautiful cottage, location perfect, everything was there that u could need. Only small thing was no double bed, that's the only thing I can think of!! Kathryn from Derby (06 March 2015)
Great location but very difficult with young children as steep stairs which meant we really had to keep an eye on our youngest. Possibly the most uncomfortable sofa ever so good job we were out most of the time. No towels!? maybe this was an error on my part to assume there would be towels provided but in all honesty, we are seasoned cottage renters and I have never had to take towels. The cottage is pretty and the beds comfy. Rachel (20 October 2014)
Was very surprised that the two bedrooms have separate staircases and are not connected. This was ok for us as we only needed one bedroom but it could cause problems for a family. Apart from that the cottage is lovely and ideal for the harbour, the beach and the coast path. Philomena from Bolton (20 September 2014)
Over priced needs updating, carpet tiles in bathrooms is very unhygienic kitchen very dirty, bad smell of damp sleeping arrangement isn't very good when u have children and parking wasn't made clear when I first booked it. Confirmed Purchaser (30 August 2014)
Many wonderful things about this charming cottage, mainly its wonderful location right next to the quay. The only problems we experienced were that there was not enough comfortable seating for 4 people in the sitting room as one of the chairs was very rickety and uncomfortable, also one of the showers kept blocking and needed to be unblocked with a plunger twice. As described the stairs are indeed extremely steep but we had not realized that they were open plan, with no door to separate the bedrooms from the stairs, and as we were travelling with a young child this was a little worrying and meant we couldn't allow him to sleep on his own up there without supervision. It also meant that one of the bedrooms above the sitting room was quite noisy if anyone wanted to stay up longer to watch tv or talk, as the lack of door meant noise traveled more. Other than that it was well furnished and had plenty of equipment in the kitchen. Could have done with some drawers in the bedroom above the sitting room or a dressing table. It has alot of homely touches and was a very pleasant place to stay, in a lovely little town. Helen from Leicester (16 August 2014)
Stayed last july and it was as lovely as I remembered. Excellent location, so close to the front. Good eateries well within walking distance. . went to blakeney and hunstanton and both pretty journeys and close by. All in all a lovely stay. Lesley from Ely (09 June 2014)
Great little cottage in central but quiet location. only drawback is the lack of parking, so you either have to pay or find some free roadside parking elsewhere in the village. we really enjoyed our stay. Linda from Barton Le Clay (30 May 2014)
We're looking forward to open fire but no logs or coal available Ronnie from Gt Yarrmmouth (10 March 2014)
Excellent location, some of the crockery needed cleaning before it was used. Jim from Northampton (07 March 2014)
Lovely cottage, in a lovely quaint village,will stay again Tracy from Newcastle (13 January 2014)
A lovely cottage in a fantastic location. Step out the door and you can see the estuary and the fresh fish stand. Wells is a great location. Plenty of walking and great seafood. Cottage is cosy but would suggest a bit more seating and instructions on the open fire. Parking is available a street away or pay on the car park. Stairs are steep so adults only or adults with teenage children. Lovely kitchen and in general a lovely quirky house. I will definitely go there again. A perfect place for me Alison from Redditch/ Worcester (19 October 2013)
Was not told until phoning for the key day before that it is two cottages, cleanliness down stairs could have been better ,and strong smell of onions in kitchen met us and lasted for days. bulb went at top of one staircase,very scary to lean over to replace, no more bulbs available had to take one from downstairs lamp and two torches and no batteries in a drawer.one bulb missing from set of three in living room ceiling and no shade on the other set in the dining room. also parking problem, yes one can get a permit at a cost of £27 Ian from Oxfordshire (05 October 2013)
Although a lovely cottage and we really enjoyed our stay, the damp smell really was a problem!! this was mainly in the front bed room and shower room :( Hannah from Sleaford (30 August 2013)
Very happy holiday. Could have done with a double bed and a forth comfy chair in living room but small grumbles in an otherwise lovely place. Mike from Gloucestershire (24 August 2013)
Very comfortable and well equipped cottage barely 20 metres from the quay side (you can see the quay from the second bedroom/landing). steep stair access to bedrooms likely an issue for the less agile but no concerns for us or our young children. The properties caretaker very informative and helpful. The issue of no parking space is easily resolved by purchasing a parking permit from the tourist office in town (allows you unlimited parking in stearmans yard just 2 minute walk away and the permit can be used as we did in other coastal towns). great location with norfolks attractions an easy drive away and wells itself has everything you need. Have recommended to friends and likely to return ourselves in the future. Paul from Standon, Hertfordshire (17 August 2013)
Lovely spot- perfect for beaches and north norfolk and beautifully quiet! parking was a bit of an issue and I think it would have been nice to have had better dining facilities..but other than that, lovely! Carey from Saffron Walden (10 August 2013)
Delightful cottage. Well furnished. Comfy beds.ideal location. Very quiet due to excellent double glazing. A lovely break away from it all. Lesley from Ely (15 Jul 2013)
Close to harbour. Good restaurants nearby, recommend wells tandori, the edinburgh inn. Tim from Ashford/Kent (22 Jun 2013)
Location and bedroom furnishings Laraine from Leeds (18 May 2013)
Location fantastic, cottage very spacious, lovely place to stay Rebecca from Nottingham (04 May 2013)
Close to amenities, harbour and beach. Kitchen well equipped. Very clean. Janet from Farnborough (06 April 2013)
My recent stay at this cottage was perfect. Literally ten meters walk from the harbour made the location ideal. The cottage itself was tidy and comfortable with a very nice kitchen. All appliances throughout worked fine. In summary, stress free relaxing place to stay. Tom from Leicester (28 September 2012)
Great cottage , 3 people had ample room and lovely kitchen, all very nice Denise from Leicester (21 September 2012)
Beautiful cottage, very well appionted . ideal location for town and harbour. Melvyn from Downham Market (17 September 2012)
It was a lovely cottage just a short walk to the water and shops.we had a lovely time would love to go again. Frances from Stowmarket (14 September 2012)
Brilliant location, comfy beds. My daughters loved having their own staircase. Showers were good. Katie from Diss (31 August 2012)
Aside the lack of parking, the location of the cottage is perfect. Arrangements to collect keys was good. Good pre-travel info. Price appears to be comparable with other similar properties. John from Hitchin (27 August 2012)
The cottage was lovely and in a great location Nicola from Bristol (30 June 2012)
Very quaint and quirky, near to the sea front and the shops, good places to eat close by. Carolyn from Wolverhampton (16 June 2012)
Anchor Cottage was in a beautiful location, a few steps away from the sea front. There were good places to eat nearby. The only slight issue initially was parking. On our second day we went to the tourist information centre and purchased a weekly parking permit. The cottage had all home comforts, the kitchen was well equipped although we only made breakfast, sandwiches and salads. I would definately recommend this quaint,quirky accomodation but make sure that you can cope with steep staircases. Customer 49 (June 2012)
Great little cottage in a superb location. Owners agent is excellent and could not do enough for us. Accommodation is very clean and tidy throughout. Beds are nice and comfortable. We stayed with friends and it proved the perfect break for us. Strongly recommended. Customer 50 (April 2012)
Fabulous small cottage in great location for all of North Norfolk locations. Well equipped and cosy cottage for couple or small family. Although there is no garden the quay is seconds away and the beach a short drive. Although there is no parking at the cottage and parking rates are expensive there is free parking in the streets only a few minutes away and space to drop things off at the cottage door. A lovely spot to spend a holiday enjoying the Norfolk coast. Customer 51 (May 2011)
Good location and access to amenities. Customer 52 (August 2010)
