Set in the heart of the popular seaside resort of Wells-next-the-Sea, Crow’s Nest has been thoughtfully renovated in 2020 to provide everything that discerning holidaymakers could need for a great seaside break, with solid oak floor, granite worktops in the kitchen, brand new heating system throughout the whole house and updated shower room. This gorgeous house now has three double beds and four single beds sleeping in ten in total. 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 and now connected to the internet for streaming services.

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.

This property has the potential to be a really good place to stay. It is very spacious, and located close to the waterfront and the main street in Wells Next the Sea. HOWEVER, there is no mention in the advertising information that the house is actually located in a public car park, and the standard of cleanliness was totally unacceptable. Many of the windows had cobwebs on them, and the frames were covered in dead flies. Some of the pots and pans are in a disgraceful condition, especially the two frying pans which are in urgent need of replacement, as is the plate drying rack which is rusty and unhygenic. Some of the curtains in the living room are hanging off the rails. The door rails in the downstairs shower rooms are filthy with mould and limescale. The carpet in one of the downstairs bedrooms is heavily stained, and looks to have been like that for some time. The youngsters were unable to use the cinema roon in the basement as it is very damp, and one of them suffers from asthma. There seems to have been no attempt for a while to dust properly, nor to clean under the three sofas in the living room, all three of which smelled strongly of dogs. It would be bad enough if this was a one-off, but the comments in the visitor's book echo this lack of cleanliness going back at least 12 months to August 2021. I always try to be helpful and constructive in any comments I make, but this really is inexcusable. The rental market is fiercely competetive, and for the cost of our week's stay we expected something much better than this. Would we go back to Wells? Yes, definitely. Would we stay in this house again? No. It needs a thorough deep clean, some urgent TLC, and then maintaining to the high standard that guests have a right to expect. I just felt that nobody could be bothered.

I think that more input should be put into cleaning, the house looks a bit scruffy in parts and needs some TLC. As a family of 7 adults I’m not sure the house is really suitable. The single beds are small and very tired. A replacement of mattresses and bedding would go amiss. They are clearly pretty old. The space in the house is great but just needs some TLC. The outside area also needs a good tidy and smartening up.
