Property Description

The Apartment

The Lookout is a beautiful two bedroom apartment, styled to create the perfect coastal retreat using a palette of warm, neutral shades and comfortable yet luxurious furnishings.

This second floor apartment forms part of the smart Mainsail Yard development of town houses on the edge of town and has views out towards the pinewoods on the coast from both bedrooms. There is allocated parking for one car in the covered garage and the whole apartment has been recently refurbished by the owners with soft carpets throughout to sink your toes into and a fabulous new shower room. 

On entering the apartment, you immediately feel relaxed and cosy. The large sitting room is currently arranged with both a two seater and three seater sofa and a comfy armchair, with a big coffee table and smart TV and the kitchen / diner is perfect for the sociable preparation of meals and relaxed dining. The modern kitchen is well equipped with integrated appliances including a full size fridge freezer, dishwasher, induction hob and washing machine. This is a lovely bright room, with a window out to the front of the apartment and has plenty of storage and worktop space.

The newly fitted shower room has a large walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall shower head, WC, wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Both the double bedrooms are located to the rear of the apartment and look out across the development and out over the countryside to the pinewoods and coast beyond. 


There is covered garaging on the ground floor of the apartment building and The Lookout has one allocated space within it. There is a height restriction of 2m inside the garage area.  There is also a large storage cupboard within the garage area for The Lookout.

The apartment is accessed via a shared main door and up two flights of wide stairs to the second floor. There is then a fire door leading to the front door of the apartment.

Whilst there is no private outside space with the apartments, Mainsail Yard is perfectly located to explore Wells-next-the-Sea and lovely walking out to the coast and beach from the front door.

The Location

The Lookout is located at Mainsail Yard, a luxury development of coastal townhouses with one apartment block in the corner. The homes at Mainsail Yard are mainly second homes and holiday lets and this makes for a relaxed and friendly feeling to the whole area. Mainsail Yard is located on the edge of Wells-next-the-Sea on Freeman Street and is within easy walking distance of all the vibrant seaside town has to offer.

Wells-next-the-Sea is a super popular holiday destination which has a thriving permanent resident community and working fishing fleet. There is a lovely mixture of independent boutiques, galleries, food shops and cafes located along Staithe Street, which runs from the harbour up to the Buttlands, home to the famous Crown Hotel and The Globe, perfect for a spot of lunch or supper when you get back from the beach.

Wells Beach is renowned in Norfolk and beyond for its endless sand and row of pretty beach huts that back onto the pinewoods. Walk for a couple of miles or so along the golden sands and you’ll end up in Holkham. Whether you decide to sunbathe, swim, fly a kite or build a sandcastle, Wells beach has something for everyone.

For wildlife lovers, wading birds can be seen on the foreshore, including terns, oystercatchers and avocets. If you’re lucky you can even spot common and grey seals basking in the sun.

There is a car park and wonderful beach cafe just behind the pinewoods, so if the stroll out to the beach from the harbour is a bit much carrying all the beach gear, you can drive up and walk over the dunes to the beach.

Wells has so much to offer for a holiday in Norfolk, whatever the age of guests, it's the perfect base to explore both the West and East sides of the North Norfolk coastline and plenty to do if you decide not to leave at all!

Distance to Beach : Around 5 mins in the car. (There us parking at the beach). It is maybe a mile and a half to walk out.
