  • "The property suffered through having to go down two steps into kitchen and bathroom, not for the infirm!"

    ! Starter pack for woodburner was missing, also hairdryer. Cottage warm and clean. Wooden floors easy to clean after the woofers' walks.

  • "A wonderful cottage within easy reach of many amenities, friendly local pub, shopping, vets (if needed) and we had a great stay."

    Kitchen was very well equipped and the downstairs cloakroom was very handy too. Lovely garden and completely enclosed for our two nosey dogs. Cottage was easy to navigate, clean and the street parking was easy. Much easier to park outside your home than London suburbia! We loved the place and would recommend highly. We will most definitely be returning ourselves too.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to read you enjoyed your stay. We hope to receive you again in the future, the owners! Property Owner

  • "The cottage wasn’t as clean as some I’ve booked through Sykes."

    It looked ok on the surface but the kitchen drawers looked like they hadn’t been given a good clean for some time, the floors under the furniture were dusty and I found some fingernail clippings under the dressing table in the main bedroom! We had some issues with the shower for the first couple of days, it wasn’t hot enough, until we found the button that you need to press to be able to turn the temperature up further. Suggest you mention this in the information sheet in the cottage. We also had some issues with getting the main oven to light and some of the hobs. The contact number in the information sheet is out of date, we phoned it for some help and the lady who answered said she had been trying to get her number removed for some time.

    Thank you for your constructive feedback. We have had our cleaning company investigate the cleanliness issues you raised and it seems there are some scratches on the floor which could appear at a glance like nails. The following notes you have made about equipment in the property have been taken into account, we will produce a new welcome book answering these questions and populate it with helpful information, kind regards the owners!

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.
