Wells next the Sea in Norfolk

 Introduction 

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 !!!!

Restaurants

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.

Handy tips when caravanning

This blog will help you when caravanning away. My family and I have been on caravan holidays since I was quite young. We started off in a static caravan in Cromer, Norfolk and went most school holidays. We then stopped as it was not as convenient as we had a dog and the caravan site was not dog friendly.

As a family we had a break from caravanning for a number of years but decided about 8 years ago to get a tourer caravan as we could go to different places and take our dog. We basically bought the caravan for the dog, he is very spoilt. Olly our dog loves going on his adventures in the caravan.

Here are some tips I would highly recommend.

  • Check out the local area and see how far it is to the areas you want to visit.
  • Wifi. Some sites do not have great wifi  so always check 1st.
  • Read reviews of sites as it a good giveaway of what the sites facilities are like.
  • If you are sleeping on the bed that is made up make sure you turn the cushions upside down as you will not feel all the ridges.
  • For the best comfort get a duvalay they are so comfortable.https://www.duvalay.co.uk/duvalay-freshtec-sleeping-bag
  • Get a Mia Tui Alex bag to take over to the shower block. They fold up and a perfect size to take all your stuff to the shower block.https://miatui.com/collections/alex-folding-travel-bag-1
  • If you can choose your caravan pitch look at map before hand to see where you want to be.
  • Take spare blankets as some nights it can get quite cold.
  • If travelling with a dog have a box of all their stuff together.
  • Use shower as an extra storage. We always use the shower block for showers.
  • Use a old milk bottle and cut off the top to use as a bin.
  • Don’t forget your chairs to sit outside.
  • If you join the Caravan and Motorhome club and using your caravan several times a year and like using wifi join for the year as it is better value.
  • We always use Crocs as they are quick and easy to pop on.
