Wells next the Sea
You will find Blackbird Barn nestled in a tranquil position, in the much-loved seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea. This gorgeous converted barn is positioned behind the owner’s property, set back off the charismatic High Street, and offers spacious accommodation for 2-4 guests in luxurious style. You couldn’t be better located to enjoy a wonderful holiday in this popular seaside town with its stunning beach and pine forest.
The newly furnished barn has everything you need. With soft comfortable furnishings and a cosy wood burner for the winter, the cottage is the ideal place to relax after a long walk on the beach. The kitchen and utility room are very well equipped, and the large, open-plan living space is perfect for sharing time with friends and family. On the first floor is a comfortable area to read a book or write your journal in the peace and quiet. A twin bedroom, and a stunning king-sized bedroom with a Juliet balcony, provide the sleeping accommodation, and the family shower room has a wonderful and very large walk-in shower.
The centre of the town, with its lovely shops, galleries, cinema, and cultural centre, is within a few minutes walk from the door. Blackbird Barn is the perfect base to enjoy a breakaway at any time of year, with beautiful beaches, wonderful walks, and fabulous dining all within easy reach. With the Coasthopper bus stop not far from the front door, you can explore the coast without using the car too.
Shop/pub within easy walking distance.
Wells Beach Hut also available to book during your stay.
IMPORTANT: This gorgeous dog-friendly barn shares access with the owners and their two friendly Golden Retrievers. It may be likely that the dogs will want to say hello as you walk through, so please do not bring any dogs with you who may be in season, or who may be frightened of other dogs.
