About this property

Located in the traditional maritime town of Wells-next-the-Sea, 200-year old Albert's Cottage was originally home to one of the Norfolk fisherman who established this popular coastal settlement. Superbly located a mere 100 meters from Wells quay, and retaining much of its charm and early features, this hideaway has been thoughtfully curated to embody a true Norfolk seaside experience.

Achingly romantic, Albert's Cottage has starred as the backdrop to three marriage proposals in the last five years. Featuring beams and an charming fireplace, this hideaway presents a wealth of character throughout. Located close to bustling Staithe Street, and Wells quay, there are numerous cafe's, fabulous restaurants, colourful boutiques, independent shops and local art galleries to discover. Wells is famed for its expansive sandy beach which is home to a charming row of vibrantly painted wooden beach huts set in front of an fragrant mature pine forest.

The ground floor comprises of a magnificent open-plan living environment with original oak beams. The seating area provides ample comfortable seating appointed around a wood burning stove set into an exposed brick fireplace. Nestle in after a day spent in the big outdoors and enjoy the warmth of this space as ambient light from the flames flickers around the room. A well-equipped kitchen area hosts modern appliances and ample worktop space for rustling up a delicious meal made from the area's famous local produce. Seating for four guests is available around a traditional circular table. Perfect for gathering together over breakfast to plan the day ahead, or for sharing food, wine and conversation long into the evening. With a selection of books and board games available, this area makes an excellent shared social space for guests to enjoy. Ascend the Norfolk winder staircase to the first floor where two exceptionally beautifully-appointed bedrooms are located. Boasting a south facing aspect, the master bedroom benefits from being well lit by natural light, and hosts a double bed with rooftop views. Bedroom two also provides a double bed. Both bedrooms have been decorated in a muted colour palette, with beds dressed in good quality linens and sumptuous soft furnishings to ensure that guests experience a much-needed restorative deep sleep. These bedrooms are served by a shower room. Outside, a delightfully quaint courtyard garden features rattan furniture surrounded by green shrubs in terracotta pots. An accompanying barbecue beckons guests to dine al fresco on summer evenings. On-street parking is available, with a public car park located nearby.

Albert's Cottage has proved very popular with Norfolk Hideaways guests over the years. Maintained to a high standard and thoughtfully prepared to welcome guests, the owner's love for this cottage is evident. Tea and cake, or similar, is laid out on arrival, and in the winter months, an inviting fire will be warming the room.

Albert's Cottage can also be booked as a sleeps two option with bedroom two closed off: Albert's Cottage(2).

    A lovely cottage and very well equipped. Very close (just outside the front door) to all the lovely shops and restaurants and harbour.

  • H Family

    We have had a wonderful week in this beautiful and cosy cottage and the weather has been a super bonus! Highlights included the tractor ride at Holkham, lunch at The Victoria, visit to Binham Priory and fish and chips from French’s. Thank you for providing the cot and high chair and for the lovely treats on arrival!
