  • "Fern cottage was absolutely perfect for our weekend away."

    Super comfy beds and a very well equipped kitchen which is a rarity in an air bnb. Would highly recommend it.

  • "From the contact before arrival to us leaving all was good."

    A well equipped, warm and comfortable holiday home. We have a winter break to take our dogs to the coast each year and many homes we would not return to for various reasons. However this was not one of them and we would be more than happy to return to Fern Cottage.

  • "Excellent cosy little cottage, with absolutely everything we needed for a restful break between Christmas and new year."

    We were really touched by all the efforts made to decorate the place and make it feel really festive! Heacham is really well placed for exploring the area and contains enough shops, pubs and takeaways for all needs within walking distance. An easy walk to miles of dog friendly beach too, and the enclosed back yard was perfect for the dog. Parking is possible round the back for unloading but we decided it was easier to park on the street at the front from then on and never struggled to find a space.

  • "The cottage was very clean."

    The kitchen was well equipped everything you could possibly need. The lounge was cosy, but the sofa throws were unpractical on leather and we spent a lot of time adjusting them, although the cottage sleeps 6 only seating in lounge for 4 adults. The steps are steep as described but the bottom 2 are small and extra care is certainly required. We parked roadside as the parking space was originally the back garden and access is extremely difficult if the neighbours car is on the their driveway.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday stay at Fearn cottage."

    It was fully equipped with everything we needed and nearby a small Tesco, pubs and within easy reach of the lovely shingle beaches. The only problem was the very steep staircase which had to be climbed with some difficulty. This however was mentioned in the itinerary. A valuable suggestion would be for a downstairs loo. This would save having to go up the stairs each time and would also be beneficial if there are several people staying at Fearn cottage.

The large front room was well adequate for the family to enjoy their interests, and with the dining room, more games could be set up on a big table. The smart bathroom was well adequate for our age groups to use, The delightful kitchen had all we needed to make our own meals , and in the village (town?) there were well enough shops to provide for our regular needs. The book completed by earlier tenants was well enough completed to provide outside public houses for eating out.And a range of places to visit.

    Off road parking is a bit hopeful, maybe a Smart car or very small hatch and then you lose the garden space somewhat. Also the house next door actually has a designated space and if they parked there you would be lucky to get back out!! It didn't bother us that parking was roadside and on a first come first served basis as to how near but potentially it could annoy some clients. That is just a comment and did not detract at all from our enjoyment of Fern Cottage, the village and the surrounding area.

    The cottage was decorated beautifully, warm and cosy and had everything we needed. The outside space was also fully equipped and safe for small and large dogs alike. The cottage is close to the beach, and you can walk to Hunstanton via the promenade which is suitable for pushchair. It has shops, pubs and food takeaways within walking distance and is a very pleasant area to stay. The on road parking was the biggest issue as the roads are narrow and you can only use the back garden for parking if the access is clear. In the height of Summer this could be a problem, but for out of season it worked well for us. We will be definitely booking again, a great cottage and good position for exploring the Norfolk coast - there are some great places to eat and out of season easy to get in without booking. A fabulous dog friendly cottage well worth visiting.

The property

Snettisham 2.6 miles.

This lovely end-terrace is situated in the seaside resort of Heacham in King's Hill, West Norfolk, less than a mile and a half from the beach.

Modern yet full of character, this recently refurbished property makes a great getaway for families and groups of friends who love being near the sea, but who also enjoy being close to the local town and amenities.

On the ground floor is a well-equipped kitchen and dining room where meals and conversation can be enjoyed, as well as a sitting room with an open fire, TV and video game console.

Heading to the first floor, you’ll find a double bedroom with a king-size bed, a twin bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom with separate shower.

Another double bedroom can be found on the second floor with a beamed ceiling.

The kitchen provides access to the enclosed paved garden which offers outdoor seating as well as a BBQ area.

There is also access to the off-road parking which is available with this property.

This Heacham property is situated within a short distance of the town centre which offers a Post Office, pharmacist, Co-op and Tesco, as well as a local vet.

Less than a mile and a half away (just over five minutes by car) is Heacham Beach, which is a great place to enjoy the weather, play with children, walk the dog or simply take a stroll in the evening.

Although it can get busy during peak periods, it's also well known for being quieter in the evening.

The famous Norfolk Lavender fields can be found less than a mile away too, with around 100 acres of lavender fields as well as a small gift shop and restaurant.

This property is ideally located for a lot of the attractions in the area, with many of them easily accessible within walking distance.

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.
