Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Enjoying seascape views and a well-equipped cinema room, this family-sized property is the perfect base for a relaxing break away.

Set in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Wells-next-the-Sea, Crow’s Nest has been thoughtfully furnished to provide everything that discerning holidaymakers could need for a great seaside break. Complete with sea views, this semi-detached property boasts a spacious kitchen, light and airy living room and a peaceful, enclosed garden. Down in the cellar, you can take the film-watching experience to the next level with the cinema projector and state of the art surround sound.

Offering parking, which is something of a novelty in Wells-next-the-Sea, guests may well be tempted to park their car up and stay within the town for the full duration of their stay. Popular with locals and tourists alike, this pretty little coastal town offers a beautiful quay, which lies just opposite Crow’s Nest, a mix of traditional seaside shops and artisan boutiques, great places to eat, potter, shop and more. There’s a narrow gauge railway that runs past the pitch and putt golf course down to the pine woods and wide sandy beach with its candy-coloured beach huts. From the quay itself, there are boat trips to fish or see the seals, and you may also see people “gillying”, the local term for catching crabs by hand line. The harbour is also home to Wells’ water ski club, sailing club and various other nautical pursuits. For a change of pace, hop in your car and head to Hunstanton, known by the locals as “Sunny Hunny”, but make sure you allow the time to explore the pretty coastal villages along the way. There are breathtaking marshes and pristine beaches scattered along the coastline that must be seen to be believed.

History buffs will be spoilt for choice with the medieval city of Norwich, with its fine Norman Castle, the Hanseatic Old Quarter of Kings Lynn, Royal Sandringham, Holkham Hall and the Blickling Estate all within easy reach. Equally, lovers of nature and birds will find a wide range of habitats from which to view the local wildlife. After a day’s sightseeing, you can retire to the sun room or the garden at Crow’s Nest and raise a glass to adventures yet to be had. The owners live nearby, so help is always at hand. Beach 100 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Bathrooms all very dirty and down at heal. Most of the kitchen cupboard doors were damaged, kitchen utensils were either dirty, stained or damaged. Outside eating area was filthy as were the sun loungers. Beds were very uncomfortable. The cinema room had a musty smell. It was very hot the week we stayed unfortunately a number of the windows were broken so couldn't be opened. We live reasonably locally so could tell that some of the local information was out of date. The day we arrived there were no car park notices, I tried to phone the owner on the telephone number included in emails but all I got was a recorded message saying this number was not available! The lounge was really lovely, comfy sofa's, nice wood burner (obviously not used during our week) and lovely big dining table. Just a real shame that the rest of the property appeared to have been able to fall into such disrepair.

    Crows nest is a large family friendly cottage. Very Well equipt! (Just one small problem the drains in the upstairs bathroom stink! :/) needs sorting. But cottage very clean, bedding fresh. (Maybe have lighter bedding for summer as very warm) Fabulous location 2minute walk to harbour and shops/pubs.

    Generally a lovely cottage to stay in, with plenty of room for all the family. Well equipped, but some of it needs updating/cleaning to warrant the 4 stars it claims to have. First impressions were not good - we entered through a very dusty yard with worn out furniture and equipment, to the main lobby at the rear of the house. There was some beautiful woodwork on show, but the large deep stains on the stairs carpet to the main living area drew more attention. Once upstairs there is a well laid out living area with more space than photographs give justice too. Again some beautiful additions to the house like an owl in the rafters, boat shelves. Delving into the kitchen was sad. Cupboards worn out, on loose hinges and crockery that needs to be in a budget holiday park. Fridge freezer was a good size, and pleased to have a working dishwasher and washing machine. Bedrooms were laid out well and linen was clean and fresh, beds comfortable. The mezzanine bedroom has no cupboard or drawers - so you would have to live out of your suitcase. Bit hard for 2 to share. Bathrooms generally okay, working showers with good water pressure, but could do with updating. Cinema room a really good addition, with lots of dvd's supplied, again super to have, but cupboards need updating as it felt like the doors would fall off. The heating down there needs updating too - as it was very difficult to get warm - even in June. We generally enjoyed our holiday in Crow's nest,and would probably return. As we were leaving we were a bit put off by the cleaning crew who turned up before 10 and asked if we were going to be long. I did not appreciate that at all. Give us time to leave with a good memory please!! Thank you for the use of your cottage. Please take my honest criticism as a help to improve.

    Fantastic place to stay very close to the quay and shops. The house was wonderful with everything you could want and high quality furniture and decor. We had 3 elderly relatives with us so it would have been helpful to have a room with 2 single beds in rather than a double - probably best situated on the ground floor. However realise that this would have personally benefited us rather than others. Fabulous time would definitely recommend.

    We loved this house. Great location and plenty of room. The only thing was the heating wasn't on when we arrived and it took a long while to heat up - but this was sorted quickly. There was also no welcome pack? Would definitely recommend this house. Great cinema room too.

    This property is in a great location, however is in need of some TLC. Kitchen cupboards hanging off, dirty cushions on sofas and questionable bedding. The Cinema room was a let down, it stank of damp and was unpleasant. The house had not been cleaned well on arrival, dirty showers and the courtyard was a mess ! Leaves and overgrown vines everywhere. I wouldn't stay here again.
