A town in north Norfolk has been named one of the most romantic destinations in the UK. 

Wells-next-the-sea has made it into Holiday Cottages' list of the top six most romantic locations for a weekend break in the UK.

Experts at the holiday lettings company chose Wells as a staycation that works for couples looking for a beach holiday without having to venture abroad.

Visitors can go crabbing or fishing in the harbour or enjoy a walk on the beach next to the town's famed stretch of colourful beach huts.
