Wells-next-the-Sea sits on the North Norfolk coast between the resorts of Hunstanton to the east and Cromer to the west.

Wells as it is often referred to is a beautiful historic town with a harbour and many independent shops.

The long sandy beach is actually two (Wells and Holkham) and is in a beautiful unspoilt setting backed by pine woods and the Holkham National Nature Reserve.
