Welcome to Admiral House! Stylish B&B in Wells-next-the-sea

Admiral House is a stylish, elegant yet affordable B&B in the heart of Wells-Next-The-Sea.

It’s the perfect bolthole from which to discover this breath-taking corner of north Norfolk - close to the sea but a million miles from the rat race. It's just a short hop to Sandringham, Walsingham, Holkham, Blakeney Point and Burnham Market through ancient villages and unspoilt countryside.

Our rooms are smart, modern and spotless, with large en-suite bath and shower rooms and the attention to detail you’d expect from a large hotel or luxury guesthouse. Set in a quiet road, Admiral House is only minutes walk to stunning Wells Quay and the town’s shops, galleries and eateries.

We’re here if you need us, but we won’t intrude, leaving you to really chill out and enjoy your break.

Around Wells-next-the-Sea

Wells-Next-The-Sea is a charming, unspoilt seaside resort, a place to enjoy life’s simple pleasures; long walks on the beach, good food in a local pub, bird watching, sailing, mooching around eclectic shops or just chilling out with the papers.

The town is a delightful network of narrow streets, old alleys and yards, awash with impressive Georgian and Victorian architecture. Many buildings are centuries old, including former coaching inns and public houses – lots are listed.

Just off the Quay a miniature steam train takes you the mile or so down to the beautiful, wide, flat sandy beach, with its pine trees, sand dunes and colourful beach huts. It stretches for miles towards Holkham and was famously featured in the film Shakespeare in Love. It’s ideal for collecting shells – you can often spot oyster catchers and ringed plovers nesting on the beach, along with common and little terns.

For the energetic, there's boating, sailing, swimming, wind surfing and water skiing. A five minute drive away is Holkham Hall, one of Britain’s most majestic stately homes. Royal Sandringham is just over 20 miles away and Blakeney 15 minutes by car. Here you can take a boat trip to Blakeney Point, famous for the colony of common seals that bask on the sandbanks. Cley Marshes, 10 miles away, is a twitchers’ haven and Little Walsingham, a place of pilgrimage since Medieval times, is only five miles away and is linked to Wells by a miniature railway.
