Simon and Avril welcome you to Merchants Barn, a very old character cottage, parts of which date back to the 14th century.  Long ago it was the barn to Merchants House,the oldest house in Wells, it was then added to until it became two cottages, each with a room downstairs, and a bedroom above, now modernised and extended, including two staircases, one of which is a winding staircase in a former chimney breast. You will occupy the old part and have your own front door to come and go as you please.

Wells-next-the-Sea

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 mooring 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 as it is a few yards from the Path.  There is a secure place for your bikes and a convenient porch to leave your boots and gear.

For those walking or cycling the North Norfolk Path or Peddars Way Wells is right in the middle and an ideal base with plenty of restaurants and shops available all year round (and saves you lugging all of your luggage around and packing/unpacking each day).  The coast hopper is a great reliable bus service to use as transport to and from your start and finish points each day.  

We have had a number of guests stay with us for 2 or 3 days and we have helped them to plan their routes to make the most of their stay and see as much of the North Norfolk coastal path and this beautiful coastline as possible. 

 

BIRDERS

Wells is also popular with birders 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.
