Dove Cottage


A tastefully refurbished cottage, with views across the marshes in the much loved seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea.  Tucked back from the road, but within easy reach of the pubs, shops and beach, this spacious retreat sleeps 2 – 6 guests in luxurious style. Not only does Dove Cottage have enviable private parking for three cars, it also has a gated yard, in which to keep your boat, canoes or bikes secure, and a lockable shed. 

The newly furnished cottage has everything you need, including a wonderful fire place with an instant gas ‘woodburner’ to snuggle up in front of on colder nights. Dove Cottage has a well-equipped kitchen/diner and utility room all with new appliances to make your stay easy and comfortable.  The large living room has comfy recliner sofas in which to lie back and relax after a long walk on the beach. Doors leading on to the bright and airy conservatory take you into a peaceful space in which to read the morning paper. 

With a double bedroom and ensuite downstairs, this bolthole has good access for those who may find stairs a challenge. Upstairs is a twin bedroom, family bathroom and a wonderful master king sized bedroom with ensuite facilities. This beautiful room has doors which open on to a decking area with a glass balcony, from here you can enjoy the marsh views through the roof tops with your early morning coffee. Dove Cottage is a truly special holiday retreat which can be enjoyed at any time of year.  Shop/pub within walking distance.

All of our cottages have qualified for the ‘Good To Go’ Visit Britain Industry Standard mark

We have enjoyed every single minute staying here in this superbly renovated cottage. What a fantastic property with every home comfort you need after some lovely walks in wonderful sunshine. The cottage was spotless and Justine was so very helpful. Thank you to everyone, we hope to return again very soon.

This is an absolutely fantastic house with a huge ‘WOW’ factor. Wells is always a lovely place to visit, but Dove Cottage made it even more so.
