Coxswain’s House is a beautiful, spacious character holiday property enjoying sea and harbour views in the heart of Wells-next-the-Sea on the North Norfolk coast.
This lovely double fronted mid terrace house is superbly located; so close to the heart of Wells, its harbour and amenities, yet is still a haven of peace and tranquillity with its sheltered south facing patio garden, which is a real sun trap.
Spread over three floors, Cosxwain’s House (pronounced ‘coxon’s’) used to be the home of the town’s Lifeboat helmsman and skipper, hence the name!
Stylishly decorated and comfortably furnished throughout (with the odd tasteful nod here and there to its seaside location), the owners have paid great attention to every small detail to ensure guests have the best and most comfortable of holidays.
There are four bedrooms over two floors (one super king, and two super king/twins on the first floor and a twin bedroom on the top floor), and three bathrooms.
A private and spacious sunken courtyard, with garden furniture and kettle barbecue.
There is parking for two cars within the gated courtyard garden belonging to Coxswain’s House.
Coxswain’s House is definitely the perfect holiday house for families, couples and friends to enjoy the very best of times in this popular seaside town.
**The house is also available as a Sleeps Eight all year round if you have a larger party, which enables you to enjoy the lovely sea and harbour views from the top floor twin suite. Please Note: When booked as a Sleeps Four, there is no access to the top floor or third bedroom.
You have such a lovely house thank you for letting it out, one of our best stays. We love Wells and will be back for sure. Lovely seeing the seals.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a charming, traditional seaside town with sandy beaches protected by a pinewood forest.
A visit to Wells wouldn’t be complete without trying your luck at a spot of crabbing on the quayside, or simply relaxing and watching the world go by whilst sampling the best in local fish and chip cuisine.
Great local pubs include The Crown Inn, The Globe and The Victoria at Holkham.
