Blackbird Barn


Blackbird Barn is hidden away in a tranquil position, in the adored seaside town of Wells-next-the-Sea. This beautifully converted barn can be found behind the owner’s property, set back off the charming High Street, and offers roomy accommodation for 2-4 guests in luxurious style. You couldn’t be in a more ideal location to enjoy a fabulous holiday in this popular seaside town with its extensive sandy beach and pine forest.

This stylish barn has everything you need. With relaxing furnishings and a cosy wood burner for the colder seasons, the cottage is the perfect place to unwind after a long walk on the beach. The kitchen and utility room are very well equipped, and the large, open-plan living space is ideal for sharing time with family and friends. On the first floor is a relaxing area to read a book or write your journal in the peace and quiet. A beautiful king-sized bedroom with a Juliet balcony, and spacious twin bedroom, provide the sleeping accommodation, and the bathroom room has a very large walk-in shower.

The centre of the town, with its lovely shops, galleries, cinema, and cultural centre, is within a few minutes’ walk from the doorstep. Blackbird Barn is the perfect base to enjoy a holiday at any time of year, with wonderful walks, stunning beaches, and excellent dining all close by. With the Coasthopper bus stop not far from the front door, you can adventure along the coast without using the car too.
