Renovated to a high standard in 2018, 1 Honeymoon Row is a charming and characterful 300-year-old end of terrace cottage in a super, secluded location, just a few minutes' walk from the Quay and harbour and a 20 minute walk to the beach in Wells-next-the-Sea.
With its pretty, sunny, fully-enclosed garden with private access and and just a two minute stroll from the picturesque Buttlands in the heart of Wells, this cottage was formerly a warehouse and temporary home to the Fisher Theatre Company at the turn of the 18/19th century. The gentle incline suggests that No.1 Honeymoon Row was used as the stage area. By 1816 the building had been converted into a row of terraced cottages and that is how it remains today.
This delightful cottage was extended in 2018 to include a modern kitchen/diner with doors opening into the garden, perfect for letting sunshine in. The sitting room, which forms part of the original building, is comfortable and cosy and has a large gas 'stove' to warm your toes during winter evenings. A steep traditional Norfolk winder staircase (there is a twisted grab rail top to bottom) leads you up to the first floor which has two double bedrooms, both with comfy beds and a family bathroom.
Even though the cottage is in a quiet and secluded location, you are right in the heart of Wells, meaning that you can explore all the pubs/restaurants/shops and local tourist attractions on foot or bicycle. And with the coasthopper bus route close by, you can literally park up for the week and hop on the bus to take you up and down the coast.
The cottage is good for a family of four and big enough for two couples, but also ideal for someone staying on their own who wants to retreat to a quiet, private space while having all the local amenities only a short walk away.
Bedding is feather (synthetic bedding is available, please request on booking).
There is an iron and ironing board.
Sorry no pets.
From the garden, french doors lead into
A fully-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, electric oven with gas hob and extractor fan, microwave and under counter fridge (with icebox).
There is a dining table with seating for four
A dual aspect room with inglenook fireplace and gas stove, television with FreeSat and DVD player.
Steep Norfolk Winder staircase leading to
With dormer window to the front aspect and a double bed.
With window to the rear of the property and a double bed.
Bath with shower over, wash basin and WC.
There is a lovely enclosed garden to the front of the cottage with a lawned area and patio with table and chairs, wooden bench and charcoal barbecue.
There is free parking available on the Buttlands, just two minutes' walk away, or at the bottom of the High Street, off Church Plain, one minute walk from the cottage.
There is no direct vehicle access to the cottage.
Norfolk Winder stairs are, as with older character cottages, enclosed, steep, curved and narrow. Here they are wooden and have a hand rail on one side.
Wells-next-the-Sea is a bustling seaside town right on the quayside. Meander up the narrow Staithe Street past the many independent shops and galleries or hop on the little train down to the beach. Lined with over two hundred beach huts, Wells beach itself is perfect for families with its soft sands and dunes, backed by a pine forest and for couples wanting to find a quiet spot too.
Don’t miss crabbing from the quay (you can enjoy endless hours of fun with a bucket and line), hot fish and chips from two of the best fish and chip shops around, locally-caught seafood at The Crab House or Dutch pancakes for breakfast (or lunch/dinner for that matter!) on The Albatros which is moored in the harbour.
Or if you’re looking for something completely different, then take an Alpaca for a walk!
For a lovely day out, head to Holkham (it has one of the best privately-owned beaches in the UK and is regularly voted the best beach in Britain) and enjoy the beach, the hall and the museum. The Wells and Walingham Light Railway is the longest narrow gauge steam railway in the world and is well worth a trip.
Or jump on the train and take the Poppy Line from Sheringham to Holt, a beautiful market town which is well worth a visit.
Head to Walsingham Farm shop for some great local produce or pick up similar local delights in the town itself. This beautiful town won’t fail to disappoint whatever time of year you choose to visit.
Further afield you have numerous little fishing villages,harbours and wonderful beaches that populate the beautiful North Norfolk coastline.
