“Great location and very peaceful with lots of good walks to the beaches”- Mr Hooley, October 2019
“On arriving garden path in was overgrown, inside there was a damp musty smell, couldn't open windows as they sealed shut, cobwebs with inhabitants behind lounge door, mould in downstairs shower, whole cottage is worn and tired, it's a shame because it could so nice if it was loved not just used to make easy money.”- Ms Smith, September 2019
“Picturesque setting, lovingly restored cottage, had a relaxing week.”- Mrs Gardiner, September 2019
“A beautiful cottage, that has been renovated to a good standard.”
There is a outside area with a table and 4 chairs. The cottage was built 1700 so upstairs ceilings are quite low. A good location to explore Norfolk.- Mrs Bainbridge, July 2019
“Briar Cottage is in an idyllic setting overlooking the village green and is a base to explore the delights of North Norfolk.”- Mrs Hodgson, July 2019
“Only drawback was the cabin built at bottom of garden on the drive, a party of 3 adults came on the Monday and they overlooked the garden etc.”
, as the garden sloped down towards the cottage kitchen door which was the only access for the property. We thought it was all part of the cottage overflow not a seperate unit to book independantly, otherwise would have looked elsewhere. Shame because cottage was lovely and loved the surrounding area. The garden not good to sit out in either because of slope and all the gravel.- Mr Burnell, May 2019
“Shower has not much pressure in flow.”- Mr Grand, April 2019
“STAIRS WAS A SRUGGLE BUT WORTH THE EFFORT FOR THE COMMFY BED.”- Mr Adams, March 2019
“Most holiday lets have a folder containing details of appliances, this cottage did not have one although there were no problems with those that we used.”- Mr Sheldrick, March 2019
“Briar Cottage is the perfect getaway for a cosy break near the sea.”
It has a great kitchen for home cooks to enjoy before snuggling up on the sofa in the comfort of the living room. It is secluded without being remote, being near a fantastic farm shop (and various supermarkets) and bus routes etc. We had a wonderful week there - highly recommended.- Ms Manley, December 2018
“Property was very clean, with all the facilities you could wish for, with safe secure parking, In a lovely quite village location.”
Would recommend.- Mr Wingar, September 2018
“Lovely cottage but people need to be aware there are beams in ceiling in both rooms!”- Mrs Chalk, September 2018
“Beautiful old cottage in a great location for touring the area.”
Very comfortable and cosy inside with a large kitchen breakfast room. Upstairs are the two bedrooms-one double and the other two singles. There is a bathroom and toilet upstairs and a shower room and toilet downstairs, so its great for 4 people sharing. Outside there is a section of garden for outside dining on warm nights. Highly recommended.- Mr Howlett, August 2018
“A really lovely cottage, very well appointed.”
A quiet location, even though there was a nearby road. Also a very handy base for exploring the surrounding attractions. We were greeted by the owner Mrs Gedney, a very nice lady. We would recommend, it would be very nice and cosy for a Christmas break !!!- Mr Howarth, August 2018
“We enjoyed staying at the cottage very much, it's very comfortable and is quietly situated in a pretty spot, but within a very short walk of the amenities of Heacham.”
The whole of the North Norfolk coast is accessible via the local bus service. a great way to get around without having to fight for a parking space at popular destinations.- Mr Stallard, June 2018
“This is a lovely cottage, from booking to leaving the cottage everything was perfect.”- Mr Crouch, June 2018
Stayed here for one week and it was a lovely little cottage as described. As per the other review in my mind it is a detached property. Everything you need is in the cottage and so much to do in the area. Couldn't have asked for any more.- Colin C, June 2018
“A quiet haven of peace”
Never been to Norfolk before although we have had many cottage holidays in the UK and abroad. Its easy to find. with its own parking site with a shared parking area with Bluebell Cottage next door. It is as described in the blurb above but for us it was a detached property rather than as described. All the utilities and utensils are available with a comfortable double bed that allowed us to get a good nights sleep every night after our busy days. Well worth a visit- yakka186394, April 2017
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.

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.

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.
