We highly recommend the local pubs & restaurants. Chapel Cottage is lucky enough to be only a few hundred yards from The Warham Horseshoes which is a gastro pub. There is also The Carpenters Arms in Wighton which makes for a great walk to lunch or dinner. Of course Wells itself also has much to offer and is only a 5 minute drive from the cottage. Shopping in Holt or Burnham Market, both of which are within easy driving distance is always pleasurable. A visit to Baker & Larners is always a must as is a wonder around the Burnhams.
In the summer the marsh which is a pleasant 1.5 miles walk from the Cottage. It is alive with nesting waders, such as redshank. Lookout for skylark & hare. In the winter flocks of up to 20,000 pink footed geese can be seen at dawn and dusk along with the ever present Brent geese. Marsh and hen harriers are regular visitors to the marsh. Look carefully and you may see the peregrine falcon.
