  • We worked out this is our 14th visit to Norfolk over the years and cant get enough of the view as you go down the walk way to the beach and get the wide open view of Holkham beach. For me, it is magic...  more »

  • Didn't specifically do the whole nature reserve as was more on the beach side. However, the beach was in low tides and was super spacious. Dogs are allowed in the allowed area and no problem to be in the beach. On the way back to the car park we walked along the beach but in the woods of the reserve and was quite relaxing. We didn't venture further inside due to time but we saw lots of people doing the walk or possibly riding their bikes as well. We finished with the beach cafe and wow local produce of sausage and burgers, made instantly on a BBQ and self serve as you want, was just fantastic. So this place could have been a 5* but I never went into the reserve fully but definitely recommended and people there were superb.
  • Glorious coastline and beach, accessible on good quality mobility scooter (I have a Shoprider Sovereign 4), could get right down to sea on wetter sand. Coming back to pine trees across dry sand and dunes (outside nature reserve area) got a little stuck - had to push - but coming back throughout trees was peaceful and beautiful. Wonderful day.put capped by tea at Victoria Inn, dog friendly accessible hotel slash pub. Parking expensive us the only reason for one dropped star - £7 all day, £4 Four hours. It does cards though so that's helpful.
  • If you have never been to the seaside at Wells Next The sea, your missing out, it's one of the most beautiful spots in Norfolk, at the harbour you can enjoy fish and chips and a quick browse around the array of nicknak shops. Then walk up the harbour wall or get the little train and arrive at a spectacular piece of beach, lined with pinewoods and countryside walks, the water here in the spring summer months is as clean and clear like being abroad. Lots of wildlife to view and dogs are welcome too, outside the roped area. A must visit even in the colder months.
  • Wow!!! We absolutely love Wells-Next-The-Sea beach. It is very clean and dog friendly. The little cafe is good too. It sells cold and warm snacks with plenty of picnic benches outside. There is a shower station for dogs too.
  • One of our favourite spots on the Norfolk coast. Plenty of space for a lovely walk and some lovely scenery. So peaceful and quiet.
