Nestled opposite historic St Nicholas church and just 10 minutes walk to the quayside, this attractive and comfortably furnished holiday cottage, on one level with enclosed rear courtyard, is a super holiday base to explore Wells next the Sea and the wider North Norfolk Coast.

The space

The Mousetrap is a great base for a holiday or short break to Wells next the Sea, because it has space for 2 cars to park and it's in a central location. It also has other advantages, which makes it attractive to a wide range of guests, other than families on summer holiday. For example, it has a walled, enclosed rear terrace...great for cyclists who need somewhere safe to keep bikes. Entering the Norfolk Triathlon? You'll need somewhere to hang wet suits - Mousetrap has the space apartments don't have! The entrance is tiled and has plenty of coat hanging and boot racking...ideal for autumn bird and wildlife watching. Because it's on one level it's an ideal place to bring older relatives for cheaper low season breaks. You will be renting the whole house...changeover day is Friday. See 'Other Things To Note' section.

Guest access

No need to worry about arriving at a particular time - this is your break - relax and enjoy it! Guests will be mailed a code for an external key safe, allowing out of hours access. All parts of the house are accessible to guests apart from a couple of locked cupboards containing end of term bedding and towels...

Interaction with guests

Guests can contact the owners by email and mobile in case of emergency...

The Mousetrap offers a beautifully designed home-from-home experience and a fabulous base from which to enjoy the delights of North Norfolk. Our trip involved two families on holiday together and the two 'wings' of The Mousetrap enabled our privacy. We were then able to come together into a warm and comfortable social space. The luxury of a parking space was also much appreciated and we enjoyed catching a few warm rays of sunshine in the enclosed yard area. Highly recommended.

Lovely house. Location is brilliant right in the centre of wells - 5 minutes walk to restaurants and shops. Wells is a great place to stay with lots to do for families. Last year we stayed elsewhere in Norfolk but this was far better - there much more to do in and around Wells. House was as advertised - same as photos - all facilities were there. Clean and very well looked after. Everything u need for a home away from home. We enjoyed our stay.

The Mousetrap was very comfortable on in a great location, we could walk everywhere around the village. Bonus of a pub two doors down with excellent food. The house was as described and very comfortable.

As well as being hosts we have started using airbnb to travel and find out about other countries. Airbnb, is perfect, as it is less formal and stuffy than a hotel. It's also more interesting as you get to meet some very nice people. As guests we appreciate we are staying in someone's home and are respectful of their property and culture.
