Church Plain, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk, NR23

££495,000 Guide

2 Bedroom Cottage For Sale

This pretty period cottage has been in the same family's ownership through three generations. If walls could talk, there would no doubt be many stories to be told…

Situated close to the church and within walking distance of all that Wells has to offer, our seller's grandchildren have enjoyed stepping out to the quay and the shops. Better still, the family have spent much of their time in the delightful garden to the rear.

The property has been modernised over time and now provides two reception rooms, a galley kitchen and a ground floor bathroom. The views over the garden can be enjoyed from the kitchen window and the pretty stable door, bringing the outside in.

The two bedrooms to the first floor are both generous and the addition of a WC and hand basin to the principal bedroom is both practical and useful. The second bedroom has been known to sleep four of our vendor's grandchildren.

The garden is a particular feature of the property, beautifully maintained, with a generous patio and lawned areas. The planting is mature and includes flowering plants and shrubs. The painted shed in the far corner of the garden is another nod to the family's past, as it started out its life as a 'Wells-next-the-Sea beach hut'.

The cottage is an ideal investment opportunity and surely will bring joy to its new custodian and remain the sanctuary that our vendors family have enjoyed for so many years.

WELLS-NEXT-THE-SEA Wonderful Wells! With its sandy beach and pretty candy-striped huts, it's easy to understand why this sleepy coastal town is a Mecca for day trippers and holiday makers, but there are plenty of reasons to make Wells-next-the-Sea your permanent home and explore this sweet spot forever.

There are plenty of ways to explore the waterways that surround the area. For a nautical adventure, jump aboard one of the Coastal Exploration Company's traditional wooden sailing boats and adventure hidden creeks, marshes and open sea. Or test your balance with a stand-up paddleboarding session with Barefoot SUP.

The lanes behind the harbour and surrounding the town have plenty of tucked-away fishermen's cottages which are highly sought after, as are apartments with sea views in the converted buildings overlooking the harbour. Head out of the town centre to discover plenty of spacious, grand houses along with fantastic new-build developments which are ideal for young families and downsizers alike. With a bustling community, the town is well-serviced with a primary and secondary schools, plus a GP surgery and library.

For a hit of culture, head to Wells Maltings, an elegant heritage and community centre just off the quay which houses a theatre, cinema, gallery and caf魢ar. While away an afternoon browsing the town's galleries - The Staithe Gallery, Gallery Plus and Quay Art - for some artwork to adorn your home. Discover gorgeous homewares at Nomad and the Bowerbird, relaxed country clothing at Christopher William Country and eco-friendly clothing and toys for little one at Ele and Me. Traditional butcher Arthur Howell is the place locals go to for high quality meat, and you might be lucky enough to bag some freshly caught fish straight off the boat, on the harbour wall. The Real Ale Shop at nearby Branthill Farm is a must for craft beer drinkers.

Alternatively treat yourself to a delicious meal at The Globe Inn or Crown Hotel overlooking the green, or push the proverbial boat out and head to Michelin-starred Morston Hall. For a simpler, yet equally quintessential Wells experience, share a box of fish and chips from French's on the harbour wall and watch the sun slowly set over the water. Imagining yourself here already? Let's find your dream coastal home…
