Am going next week for a week and trying to budget for eating etc... anyone been and care to recommend eating places kid friendly and is there a supermarket in wells like a sainsbos, tesco, morrisons etc... also bewilderwood - worth viiting or to far really?
dc are 4 and 8 - i found the sandwich deli and was hoping to see the prioces <tight arse is me>, i see there is a morrisons in cromer so dont know how far that really is to consider. I dont intend on cooking much apart from dh will insist on his daily full englsh he will be sorting. Thanks thisyesterday
no prices i note on either of them sites and as its carnival week when we go i expect it wont be cheap . I am about to announce to dh i will fund all hospitality lol but was hoping to know if i could actually manage such a feat before i offered! Ha!
There's a morrisons in fakenham too. Fakenham's about fifteen mins away. Pensthorpe's just outside fakenham and worth a visit too. It's where they filmed springwatch for the previous three years and my nearly three year old loves going there.
Two fish n chip shops next to each other. Go to the one with the queue going out the door! Its the best fish n chips you'll ever have. Imo! Theres a little playpark over the road where you can eat n then play! Canoeing and other activities next to the campsite by the beach. Little mini train from the town to the beach. There was a massive massive storm in 1953 which flattened the town as it then was closer to the sea, which is why the town is now a mile or so inland. Beaches are brill. Get a kite!
i have just google earthed our cottage - seems were about 4 doors up from a tandoori, there is a cafe 3 doors up that does full english breakfasts according to the sign outside its door and then about 100, up the road is the arkroyal pub which looks the roughest in the whole of wells - so should be good then!
Ollies at the Edinburgh Pub opposite the Costcutter doesn't look all that from the outside but does lovely food and is very child friendly - there's a big room separate from the pub where you can have meals with the kids - think they start serving quite early too in the evenings. The fish and chip shop that has queues out the door is called Frenchs . The deli is pretty expensive but the sandwiches are delicious. The Costcutter is a reasonable size but if you want to stock up agree with the others that you need to go to Fakenham for Tesco or Morrisons. Have a great time
Also a Lidl in Fakenham, for cheap and cheerful holiday groceries There's an indoor soft play area in Wells itself should the weather let you down. Depending on the ages of DCs, Wells quay is great for crabbing and all the gift shops on the quay sell the equipment. Sheringham's not far and there is a big indoor swimming pool with slides, wave machines etc called Splash.
I grew up in Fakenham (my dear ol' pa works in Tesco Fakenham btw) and spent most weekends in Wells. Fakenham does indeed have a Morrisons, Lidl, Tesco etc and is about 9 miles away from Wells down the dry road. Holkham beach next door is good (a bit of it's nudist though I warn you) and the Burnhams/Brancaster are worth a visit if you want to stomp along some lovely beaches.
Bewilderwood is superb. The Dinosaur Park too if you're happy travelling a little way. All the best MNers live in Norfolk btw...
