The Constable's House, Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk
This semi-detached Victorian townhouse is a truly arresting sight, and is conveniently situated close to the centre of Wells-next-the-Sea, a popular North Norfolk coastal town.
A charming holiday property which sleeps up to 6 people, the Constable's House has a gorgeous private garden as well as a prime location just a few minutes' walk from the centre of this splendid seaside town. Decorated and furnished in a very relaxing contemporary style that enhances the character of the house, this is a super comfortable and well-equipped holiday home.
With two generous reception rooms and a breakfast kitchen on the ground floor, and three good-sized bedrooms (king, double and twin) and two bathrooms (one is en suite) on the first floor, this spacious house will appeal to families, couples and friends around the year. French doors from both the kitchen and dining room/snug lead out into the private, enclosed rear courtyard garden which has an additional dining area, just perfect for lazy dining when the days and nights are warm.
The house is ideally situated in the quiet residential area of Church Plain on the southern outskirts of the town, where you will find the magnificent Victorian St Nicholas Parish Church at the end of the road. Take a short walk in the other direction and you arrive right the heart of the town. Here you will find absolutely everything you need, and more, to make your holiday complete - a choice of some great places to eat, an array of interesting independent shops to browse and the fantastic Maltings art complex to explore. Maybe try your hand at crabbing or sign up for a day's sailing from the picturesque Quay. If you fancy just watching the boats come and go, or the world go by, take a seat outside one of the many cafes.
And, of course, don't forget the beach! Wells beach is a hard one to beat - it's absolutely stunning, with golden sands, framed by pine woods and a row of colourful beach huts, stretching as far as the eye can see. The beach is around a twenty minute walk from the Quay, but you can always take the car or let the little gauge train from the Quay take the strain. In the unlikely event that you ever tire of Wells-next-the-Sea, there are endless delights to explore not too far away - Holkham Hall and its beautiful deer park where you can hire bikes, and the chi chi village of Burnham Market with its boutiques and restaurants, to name but two.
