Wells next the Sea in Norfolk is one of my favourite places in the UK. Its gorgeous and plenty of places to go and lovely walks. The beach is massive and you can walk for miles we never thought we would get to the sea but we did an hour later !!!. You could take thousands of photos there its that picturesque. I think I could live there. I have spent quite a few holidays in Norfolk as we used to have a static caravan in Cromer.
Pinewoods Caravan site
We stayed at Pinewoods touring caravan site which is 10 minutes walk through the static caravans to the beach in Wells next the Sea. This touring site is in an ideal location for both the beach and visiting the town and very modern toilet and shower facilities. They had very yummy croissants that were available from the shop onsite. . The only issue I encountered was the lack of WIFI. I had to use my parent’s data and tethered my phone. They have a little train that takes you from Pinewoods caravan site to Wells next the sea and back again and costs £1.50 per single journey. We went on our last trip but Olly our little dog was not very impressed and we were concerned he may jump out so did not go this time !!!!
We stayed for 4 days and visited a few local restaurants along the Norfolk coast. It was incredibly busy as there was an event at Holkham Hall. The weather was gorgeous as well. French’s fish and chips in Wells were fantastic and the rest of Wells seemed to have the same idea as us that evening. We went to Ollies Restaurant on Sunday which was in an area we never knew existed but I would highly recommend this excellent and very welcoming pub. They also sell a collection of RNLI products and I purchased a travel mug and my Mum purchased some lovely greeting cards.
On Monday we went to a pub that I have wanted to visit for a long time. I have seen a lot of people mention it on Instagram. I finally got to experience the amazing Hoste Arms in Burnham Market. It exceeded my expectations and the meal was amazing. We all had burgers which were massive. All the staff were so welcoming and made a lovely fuss of our dog and even bought a bowl of water without being prompted. We also visited the Beach Cafe at Wells beach which was very dog-friendly and plenty of bowls of water.
There are lots of dog-friendly places to go which is ideal for us as we took our Cavalier King Charles dog, Olly. My Dad saw several other Cavalier King Charles spaniels which Olly loved as he seems to know his own breed.
