Description

This beautiful getaway offers a great base for a large family or friends alike, and boasts breathtaking views.

In a fantastic setting, enjoying stunning views across the harbour, quay and marshes to the sea and pine woods beyond. The detached Pirates Lookout provides a great base for discerning guests seeking a well-appointed getaway, with a great mix of style and home comforts. This detached holiday property has been thoughtfully designed so that the living space, from which the views are simply breathtaking, is on the first floor, the vaulted living room offers patio doors on to a Juliet balcony so you can breathe in the sea air while taking in the vista. Thoughtfully designed, all the living areas and bedrooms have USB charging points fitted into a variety of well-placed sockets and all the bedrooms have their own LED TV with Freeview and DVD player built in! Double designer, digitally controlled shower room letting the temperature of the shower be pre-set before entering. The double shower with multi-head showers allows for plenty of room.
Wells-next-the-Sea is popular with tourists and locals alike and offers a mix of traditional seaside and artisan shops and cafés, amusements and a narrow gauge railway that runs virtually from Pirates Lookout and takes you past the pitch and putt golf course down to the pine woods and beach, voted one of the best in the country. The much photographed quay is also a staging post for boat trips including fishing expeditions, booking boat trips to see the seals and is famous for its ‘gillying’ catching small crabs by hand line from the quay wall. Wells also has its own 9-hole pitch just 300 yards away and the two Links cliff top gorgeous golf courses, the Sharingham Golf Club and the Royal Cromer Golf Club. Horse riding is also available at the North Norfolk Riding School just 5 miles from the cottage, as well as various schools and stables along the coast.
The harbour is also the home of Wells Sailing club, Water Ski Club and other water sports and visiting yachtsmen from far and near. Wells offers something for all the family, including the 19th century ‘Albatross’ Dutch sailing barge on the quay, now used as a restaurant and bar with live eclectic music on Fridays, Saturday and most Sunday lunch times. A large well-appointed children’s playground and adjoining skate park, the cinema and theatre on Staithe Street and the myriad of boutique, craft and traditional shops, as well as the ever popular with children amusement arcades for rainy days. Why not try the local horse and cart rides or alpaca trekking along the fields and marshes? An experience the whole family will enjoy.
For all the fun of the fair, head to Hunstanton but making sure you take the time to explore the pretty seaside villages along the way. Enjoy the Sea Life Centre, visit the small fun fair or just relax on its beach with its famous cliffs and rock pools. There are National Trust properties and stately homes to explore too, including Holkham Hall and The Sandringham Estate, both of which host events throughout the year. Bird watchers will also be spoiled for choice with Norfolk being described as the ‘birdwatching capital of the UK’ and there are marshes and nature reserves aplenty to explore, including Titchwell Marsh, which is just a short drive away. With ample cycling routes and walks, water sports, fishing and golf, as well as great places to eat and to just potter around and unwind in, you really will be spoilt for choice. Children will also love the playground nearby. And, after a fabulous day out, you can kick off your shoes at Pirates Lookout, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sun go down while planning your next adventure. Shops 60 yards.

    Fab house with everything you need, amazing views and very easy access to everything that's on offer on the North Norfolk coast. Love how the living accommodation is at the top of the house, you could sit all day watching the world go by. The only thing I would change is to have curtains up at the living room, just for when it's dark in the winter months. Would definitely go back again.

    Pirates Lookout is an excellent holiday cottage, finished to a very high standard and we would definitely recommend a visit! It is in a great location with fantastic views of sea. The children ranging from 7-12 especially loved walking to the park, amusements and to the local shops. Car parking was always available and very close in the public car park - we would suggest getting the weekly parking ticket as makes life much easier. The cottage itself has four large bedrooms each with good storage and everywhere was well stocked, especially the kitchen. We had a lovely week of crabbing, walking the dog, and relaxing in and around Wells. This was a great location for seeing North Norfolk.
