Wells is in the centre of the North Norfolk coast with a unique mixture of sandy beaches, salt marshes, pinewoods and sand dunes. Wells has a small harbour, a large sandy beach surrounded by pinewoods, and thus caters for most tastes and weathers. In summer the extensive beach and sand dunes are popular with families. The harbour is home to a small fishing fleet, but in summer is busy with a range of vessels from kayaks to sea going cruisers with several hundred moorings, some vessels morring here all year round. In winter the salt marshes are home to very large numbers of geese and visiting waders. The house is situated about 200m from the quay in a quiet, small road known locally as a Yard.
WALKERS & CYCLISTS
Wells is popular with walkers as it is right on the North Norfolk Coastal Path. Merchant's Barn provides an ideal resting place for them as it is a few yards from the Path. There is secure place for your bikes and a convenient porch to leave your boots and gear.
Wells is also popular with birders as it is situated between the RSPB reserve at Titchwell and the NWT reserve at Salthouse. There are also reserves at Snettisham and Welney, within easy traveling distance.
