About Tusker House

Tusker House is a real find. The traditional property has been beautifully renovated, has stacks of space, and sits in one of the best beach towns in the UK. Wells-next-the-sea combines a stunning and safe sandy beach with a fabulous centre packed with independent shops, cafes and galleries. All of this is within walking distance of Tusker House which provides super comfy post-beach accommodation with plenty of room for all the family upstairs and down. A concierge service takes the hassle out of your holiday, and you’ll also have your own parking space- a rarity in Wells!

The House

Gorgeously renovated throughout with log burner, traditional fireplaces and a mix of modern and antique furniture, Tusker House is perfect for comfortable and relaxing family holidays.  Downstairs there’s space for everyone in the 3 reception rooms - a sitting room with log-burner and doors to the garden, a dining room and a snug/children's TV room. The downstairs shower room makes for easy post-beach clean ups.  

Upstairs you’ll find 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, a twin, and single) and a family bathroom.  Outside the pretty garden is enclosed and has a seating area perfect for sitting down with a glass of wine in the evening while the children play. The off-street parking is behind the garden.


The location of Tusker House makes it perfect for strolling into the bustling quayside at Wells where you’ll find plenty to keep everyone amused including crabbing for the kids.  A 15 minute walk from the town takes you to the beautiful beach with facilities, a lovely cafe, shop and some super cute instaworthy little beach huts. There’s loads of space for families to play and relax - take it easy on the way back and take the little train into town. You’ll also be able to catch a steam train from Wells to the beautiful village of Walsingham on the light railway.

Take buckets and spades, wellies and windbreaks to make the most of the fab location, and some DVDs for some post-beach downtime back at the house.

If you want to explore more of North Norfolk then Holkham Hall is a great place for a day out - explore parkland and wildlife, take a boat across the lake, and relax on the beautiful beach.

For a wilder coastal experience head to Blakeney where you can take a boat trip to see seals in their natural environment. And for inland water adventures then cycle, canoe or hire a speed boat and explore the wonderful 125 miles of the Norfolk broads.

Norwich is a gem of a city, with fabulous shopping, restaurants and cultural heritage - great for all the family.

Food and Drink

The kitchen at Tusker House has recently been updated and has everything you need for family meals. Head to Wells Deli or Walsingham Farm shop for provisions. In Wells you’ll find a range of great cafes, pubs, restaurants and fish & chip shops, plus there’s plenty of lovely places to eat within driving distance.

Kids and Parents

Take the hassle out of your holiday and make use of the concierge service for restaurant and activity bookings, newspaper deliveries, or even to have your fridge stocked when you arrive. In the house there is a travel cot and high-chair, plus a children’s snug/TV room for little ones to have some quiet time.
