The Property

This delightful semi-detached cottage is situated opposite the church and is right next to the village green in the Norfolk seaside village of Heacham. Built in 1700 and restored to a very high standard, it has even been given an award by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE); this Heacham cottage is the perfect location for a romantic break or for a small family holiday near to the beach. Ceiling beams abound within this Norfolk cottage and the first floor features a lovely double bedroom, a cosy twin room and a family bathroom; a wonderful place to wash away the sand after a day on the beach. On the ground floor is an additional shower room along with a well-equipped kitchen with French doors leading to the garden. The sitting room at this cottage in Heacham boasts a superb gas woodburner-effect stove, so no matter what the weather is doing outside, you will be relaxed and warm as you sit down to watch a DVD or read a book. The garden area is a superb place to catch the last of the evening sun and to reminisce about the day's adventures. Heacham is a lovely Norfolk village with a selection of shops and pubs, and of course, is home to a wonderful and safe sandy beach. Take a stroll around the village or jump into the car to discover this magical part of Norfolk. Just a few miles away is the Sandringham Estate, or you may wish to head further inland to the cosmopolitan village of Burnham Market. The coast is dotted with quaint fishing villages such as Wells and Blakeney where you can take a boat trip to see the seals; or you may prefer the more traditional seaside resort of Hunstanton which is just a couple of miles up the coast. With a wide range of activities to enjoy, this cottage in Heacham is bound to live long in the memory.

About the location

HEACHAM

Hunstanton 2.5 miles; King's Lynn 15 miles.

Heacham is a large village located on the West Norfolk coastline, on The Wash, boasting a lovely family friendly sandy beach, ideal for jet skis, kitesurfing and windsurfing. The village has many cottages built from Carstone, which is a feature of this part of Norfolk, and also offers a good range of shops, restaurants and country pubs. Within walking distance is Caley Hall, home to Norfolk Lavender with its sweet smelling lavender fields, and Heacham Hall, owned by John Rolfe, who brought his young bride Pocahontas to England to live at the hall (in the local church of St Mary you will find a memorial to her). This part of Norfolk is renowned for its abundance of birdlife throughout the year, with several local RSPB sites, while within easy driving distance is Pensthorpe Nature Reserve and Gardens, as seen on BBC's Springwatch. Nearby Hunstanton offers traditional seaside entertainment including a sealife centre, while The Queen's Sandringham Estate is just a 15 minute drive.
