It’s as English as England can be – a beautiful inn on a Georgian green. Potter down to the water and find a sandy beach for family fun, then a small harbour, where day boats land their catch on the quay. As for the Globe, it’s an inn for all seasons. Outside, there’s a sun-trapping terrace at the front, a flower-filled courtyard where you can eat in summer, try a pizza from the wood-fired oven; there’s a colourful roof terrace too. Inside, wood-burners sit at both ends of the bar, there are sofas and armchairs, games for rainy days, then local ales and excellent wines with which to wash down delicious local food. You eat in an airy restaurant with local art on the walls, perhaps clam linguini with chilli and garlic, dressed Wells crab or a rib-eye steak, then chocolate mousse with pistachio ice cream. Rooms upstairs and in the courtyard wing have the comfiest beds in the land. Those at the front have views of the green. Rooms connect for families, dogs are very welcome, boat trips can be arranged. Sandringham is up the road and there’s a hut on Wells beach that can be hired for the day. Bliss.
