We look forward to welcoming you to Westward House, just a few steps from the centre of Wells-next-the-Sea but beautifully peaceful and secluded.
We offer a self-contained annexe to our historic eighteenth-century house, perfect for a couple or a small family. It has two lovely bedrooms, bathroom, well-equipped kitchen and living room.
The annexe was a small barn attached to the house and has been recently converted to a high standard. Plenty of character but all mod-cons!
The annexe is available as self-catering accommodation throughout the year – perfect for holidays or short breaks.
No pets, no smoking.
Westward House is just a few steps from the centre of Wells-next-the-Sea, on the beautiful North Norfolk coast.
The house is set well back off the road and is peaceful and secluded, but only two minutes from Staithe Steet, the main shopping street, which leads to the quay, and The Buttlands, the village green.
Wells is a wonderful seaside town with lovely walks, a beach, great pubs and family-run shops. Stately homes, nature reserves, boat trips, beaches and many places of interest are within an easy drive.
Wells is a wonderful seaside town and small fishing port: a bustling little holiday resort in summer and a great centre for walking and bird watching in spring, autumn and winter.
The Norfolk Coastal Path takes you westwards through dunes and pine trees, or eastwards along the edge of the marshes – delightful walks in either direction.
Just round the corner from Westward House is The Buttlands, the village green, focal point for the annual summer carnival and other events. Cafés, shops, bakery, delicatessen, supermarket and bank are all within five minutes’ walk and the view as you walk down Staithe Street, the main shopping street, is of the quay and marshes. There are several pubs and restaurants offering good food all within ten minutes walk, and many more in neighbouring villages.
Children of all ages can enjoy ‘gillying’ (fishing for crabs), pitch-n-putt, the beach and the pinewoods. A mini train can take you down to Wells beach and a slightly larger train heads to Walsingham.
About a ten minutes’ drive away (or a two mile walk or bike ride) is Holkham Hall, a wonderful eighteenth century stately home set in a beautiful park, and its famous beach and nature reserve. Medieval Blickling Hall, the seals at Blakeney, chic Burnham Market, Cley nature reserve, Houghton Hall, Overy Staithe, royal Sandringham, Titchwell bird reserve, the ancient pilgrimage town of Walsingham and many delightful smaller villages are all well worth exploring. The beautiful city of Norwich is about an hour away and the ancient university town of Cambridge about two hours.
