    We did so much without travelling far with our 3 year old. Cottage was really nice, had most things we needed and was thoughtfully decorated. The only changes I'd like would be to address the doggy smell, install black out blinds in the bedrooms and put mattress toppers on the beds as they weren't comfortable. XXXX OWNER RESPONSE XXXX We are glad to hear you had a good stay at the property. We can confirm that the property has been pet free for over 2 years and been fully renovated since the last pet stayed, therefore we are unsure how there was any 'doggy' smell. There are currently black out blinds in the 2 front bedrooms however, we will look at putting a black out blind in the back bedroom at our earliest convenience.

About the location


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.
