“Awesome Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012 via mobile

Being from the Isle of Wight I am very used to beaches but I have never seen a beach like this before! The sand dunes and expanse of sand goes on for miles and allows you to walk for hours on end. The sheer scale of the beach is incredible and is highly recommended that you grab your wellies and prepare for a mammoth walk. Awesome

“Beautiful and natural”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2012

Great for a long walk, you can even get from Holkham to Wells and back in half a day, just need to make parking free off season

“Stunning Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2012

We've been here several times, both for short walks (I'm disabled), and to birdwatch. From the car parking in Lady Anne's Drive (fee), there is a boardwalk out to a viewpoint for those who can't walk very far, get tired walking in sand, or are in a wheelchair. A short walk from the car park (fee) at Wells beach takes you to the colourful and attractive beach huts, backed by the pine woods at Holkham - and the most enormous expanse of sand!

“Holkham Walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

The walk from Holkham to Wells is lovely. We started from Holkham and walked along the beach with our dog and came back through the pine forests which added a different dimension.
It was about a 3 round trip walk and perfect to walk off breakfast and build up an appetite for lunch !!! we had lunch at the Witherton Bell which was brilliant!!!
