Our North Norfolk coastline is awarded 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and it really isn't hard to see why when you visit our many beautiful beaches right on the doorstep. A diverse landscape boasting centuries of ecological and historic character, there is so much more to our coastline than just beach huts and sandcastles.
Award winning Wells beach is best known for its sand dunes, pinewoods and the iconic, colourful beach huts that line the horizon. Forming part of Holkham Estate, if you are a keen walker, then trek a few miles along the golden sands and you will arrive at Holkham. For the bird watchers among you, wells beach is a popular nesting ground for oyster catchers, ringed plovers and many more. The pinewoods is a great place to explore, build dens and collect pinecones. You may even stumble across a secret rope swing hidden within the wood! You can access the pinewoods directly from the beach via a boardwalk and steps.
