After many years as one of the most popular Bed & Breakfasts in Wells-next-the Sea Machrimore now offers a gold standard self catering unit simply called Macks Shack. Nestled in its quiet corner this detached accommodation offers peace and tranquility all a short stroll from the centre of the seaside town of Wells. This luxury conversion was completed in May 2016 and we were delighted to be given a 4 Star Gold Award from the East of England Tourist Board .
The jewel of the North Norfolk coast
A pretty port town on the North Norfolk coast of England, Wells has a population of just over 2,000. The city of Norwich lies 32 miles to the south-east and, as well as Burnham Market, nearby villages include Blakeney, Burnham Thorpe, Holkham and Walsingham. So up-and-coming is this seaside spot that the Sunday Times even named it the runaway winner of their first Beach of the Year award. The spectacular sandy beach is fringed by pine woodland and adorned by the famous beach huts.
Wells sits along side a peaceful harbour with clusters of small fishing boats gently bobbing on the surface and a beautiful town peppered with fine Georgian houses, quiet pubs and quaint independent shops.
Once you step inside this light, airy and contemporary ground floor accommodation its sure to feel like home. Unique design touches like the glass panel divide from an old local victorian school to the stunning canvas depicting the nearby salt marshes at Stiffkey gives Macks shack originality and character.
BIRD WATCHERS HAVEN
With so many of our loyal guests avid twitchers it would be no surprise to learn that north Norfolk is a bird watchers paradise with rare birds often paying a visit due to the proximity of the European continental mainland. There is a wealth of nearby nature reserves including Holkham, Titchwell and Cley to get up close to unique species of the area such as the red breasted nuthatch or of course the avocet.
SWITCH OFF OR SWITCH ON
Whether you choose to switch off or switch on at Macks shack you'll find all you need technology wise from digital tv, DAB radio to complimentary wifi throughout. If just relaxing with a good book is more your style then reading lights by the sofa and bedside should more than illuminate a great read.
Your only struggle at Macks shack is making time for all there is to see and do in this beautiful part of the country. Once settled in stroll into town stopping at one of the many local pubs for a pint of Norfolk Wherry or crisp sauvignon. Passing the quaint local shops on your way to the seafront, freshly cooked fish and chips await, best enjoyed watching the fishing boats bob past as the sun sets over the magnificent marshes.
