Guestbook comments from the owner

The Moorings - thank you for a super, fantastically equiped house. It was a real joy having so much space. March 2011 Tully family - Leicestershire.

`The Moorings` is very comfortable, well equipped, beautifully presented and in a great location. For bird watches – 35 species seen from the decked area in the back field! B Family May 2009 The Moorings.

We have had a lovely time. Your house is delightful – lovely decor, very well equipped and a fantastic location. Already looking forward to coming back!

Nearest Beach
1 Miles
Wells Next Sea
Car: recommended


Only a few minutes walk from the quay, 15 -20 minute walk to the beach. Wells beach is a mile from The Moorings and The Boat House, it is a beautiful sandy beach, with the famous beach huts. Holkham beach is a 5 minute drive away. All are in an area of outstanding natural beauty.


About 1 hour from Norwich airport, two hours from Cambridge. A car is recommended - but only to get here! Once you are in Wells, you will have no reason to leave. Excellent local shops, and restaurants, numerous activities for the family, and Britains best beach only 15 minutes walk along the beautiful sea-wall path.


Holkham Estate and famous beach 5 minutes in car.

Great property in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

A very spacious house, ideal for our family stay with three generations happily accommodated.

The property was clean and in an ideal location for easy access to the town, harbour and walk to the beach and for the occasions we wanted to eat out in the evenings. The welcome cake and prosecco were much appreciated. Would stay again.

  • 5 of 5

The propert was perfect for our stay, lots of space and all perfectly clean. The terrace overlooking the river was beautiful. Short walk into Wells and space to park 2 cars. The fresh homemade cake and the bottle of prosecco left to greet us was a lovely personal touch. Already planning a return trip. Cannot fault it.

The Moorings - Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the house was absolutely spotless everywhere the owner left us welcome gifts which were much appreciated.

This property was absolutely perfect for our family and was beautifully presented, we cannot find one fault with it, there was nothing missing.

Location is excellent for Wells, few minutes stroll to the town. We found it easier to walk to the train and get on the train to the beach.

I would definitely recommend this property to everyone wanting to stay in Wells.

Fabulous property, excellently located

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we could have wished for - and more! Barbara had thought of everything for the kitchen and it was a lovely, relaxing new year stay. It is very well situated just a short walk to the town and beach/harbour, and a great fish restaurant 200 yards up the road! The property is very spacious, immaculately clean and we have already booked to go there again! Can't recommend it highly enough - thanks Barbara!
