About this Holiday Cottage

Originally an Inn frequented by drovers herding livestock to boats on the harbour, and was one of the first buildings to be built in Wells-next-the-sea when it was founded in the 15th Century.  At the corner of the house remains the old settle where the patrons drank their ale hundreds of years ago.

Now, however, it provides luxury accommodation to holidaymakers looking to relax and explore the stunning Norfolk countryside.


The interior of Laylands Cottage is beautifully decorated with modern furnishings, with a large barn style kitchen and dining room with glazed doors leading to the patio and back garden.

In the living area, guests have use of entertainment systems including a 42" flatscreen TV with a BT vision TV package. There is also a wood- burning stove, comfortable sofas and underfloor heating in some parts of the house.

The kitchen is equipped with a wide range of appliances including a large range cooker, microwave, American fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumbledryer.

Bedrooms / Bathrooms

There are 5 bedrooms at Laylands Cottage: 3 double bedrooms with 6' beds, two of which have en- suite bathrooms, and also 2 twin bedrooms with 3' zip and link beds and a shared shower room.


Laylands Cottage is detached and is surrounded by secluded front and back gardens. The back garden is large and is walled, with mature fruit trees and large patio with outdoor furniture.

Other Things to Note

Strictly no smoking, and no pets allowed. Free WiFi for recreational use, however the speed and service of the internet may depend on the broadband package obtained by the owner. A travel cot, stairgate and highchair are available on request.
