Stayed for a long weekend and the accommodation was superb. Very well equipped in all areas. Had parking for two cars and even a barbeque in the rear courtyard. A short stroll from the town centre but nice and quiet.

The accommodation was brilliant. Every facility you wish for. Everything provided to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Off road parking also parking outside the Mousetrap which is also off road.
just a short walk into Town and the harbour.

Wells must have the nicest beach in Norfolk.

Thanks Eileen...we agree, Wells does have the nicest beach in Norfolk! Nice to hear your comments about the Mousetraps free car parking. Trying to get parked in Wells, in summer, is crazy!

Four of us spent a fantastic weekend at The Mousetrap in early May. The house is situated across the road from a beautiful church, metres away from a family pub serving great food and only a short distance away from the seafront and town. The kitchen is really modern, and well stocked with cutlery and equipment, plus the lounge and bedrooms are very comfortable. Loads of activities nearby including alpaca trekking, crabbing, pubbing and the beautiful Holkham Hall. Will definitely recommend The Moustrap to friends and family

“A perfect retreat and bigger than expected”

On arrival, the Mousetrap looks quite small, but once inside its a pleasant surprise with plenty of space and having two separate showers and toilets meant our teenage daughter and friend had their own space and we had ours. The kitchen and living area are a good size and everything is well laid out. Beds were comfortable so good sleep all round.
Its location is also a real plus as it is on the edge of everything in the town but really quiet and away from the busy streets. Parking is good and safe.
In all whether you are popping out to eat and shop (5 mins) or walk to the main beach (20mins) . It is all perfect and would highly recommend the Mousetrap to future guests. We shall certainly return

A lovely friendly town where people actually talk to you. The pub just a few doors from the Mousetrap serves good food and apart from breakfast we enjoyed good pub grub. The house is just modernised and is really comfortable and light. The car parking is a bonus as we just parked up and walked around the district. Lovely walks along a great beach Can't wait to go again.

Thanks for the review Joan. Nice to know that we can compete with Murcia, Spain. Perhaps, not always on the warmth of the weather, but certainly on the warmth of our welcome and service....Hope to see you at the Mousetrap again in the near future.
