  • "Overall a lovely house ..."

    Overall a lovely house Felt the glasses could have been more plentiful for the amount of guests and of the same style only 2 gin glasses and an array of oddball sizes and lack of water glasses, no dustpan and brush, lacked large dishes for cooking, furnishings are tired in the main lounge and quite stained in the kitchen dining area, felt the garden would benefit from a permanent fence where the sheer drops around the steps area, found the heating to be a bit tiresome having to boost it to heat the lounges and bedrooms This is meant as constructive comment not moaning based on previous stays in other properties

  • "Stunning property in a great location which feels relaxing and comfortable."

    Lovely family home which affords enough space if you want to take yourself off to read or be alone but also the space to all be together, if that makes sense :)

  • "This house is amazingly huge."

    We had a party of eight and it very comfortably housed us all. The inside is nicely decorated with certain aspects of the property finished to a very high standard. The photos don't do it justice in terms of size. It also had decent broadband which we have found to be a rarity in holiday homes. The house does suffer from trapped heat so you'll want to open those wonderful bi-folding doors at the back, which instantly cools down the house. Also, we booked through Sykes Cottages who advertised it as 3 bathroom - it isn't. There are two very generously sized bathrooms and a downstairs cloakroom. This makes showering a large party slightly challenging, but then again, you're on holiday so what is the rush? The location is excellent if you are wanting to explore the North-West Norfolk region. Being at Heacham, which is west facing, the sunsets are wonderful to watch out the front of the house. I highly recommend this property and would definitely use it again.

    Dishwasher had broken down. Owner needed access to property during our stay to install replacement. Replacement was not completely installed, it was not fully safe as dishwasherd oor was not installed. I discussed with owner. He accepted the criticism.

The property

Approached by the main coastal road, this large property sits on a quiet stretch of country lane that runs through the village of Heacham.

Sunset View is a modern property, finished to an excellent standard throughout with touches of a nautical theme, this house would be an excellent home-from-home for large families, or gatherings of friends.

The front door leads into the long and spacious entrance hallway, with the front room being the snug to the right, a perfect spot to leave the kids in to watch some TV, play some of the provided games or have a quiet moment on the plush seating.

Moving out of here, past the downstairs cloakroom with basin and WC, find the sitting room which contains plenty of inviting sofas for all to nestle into their own spot and relax for the evening when you have decided what to put on the TV, or simply switch the devices off and let the wine flow as you catch up with old friends.

For cooking, dining and all things food, head into the kitchen/diner, discover the many appliances integrated into the sleek kitchen design, enjoy a morning coffee at the breakfast bar, and in the evening dine around the large farmhouse style table.

Large floor to ceiling glass bi-folding doors lead you out to the garden, featuring a patio with a long outdoor table and bench seating, perfect for enjoying food cooked on the gas barbecue on a sunny summer day, while the kids run up the garden steps to play on the lawn.

If the weather isn't in your favour, close the glass doors and take a seat in the soft chairs and watch the rain hit the glass as you sip a warm drink on a slow afternoon.

The sleeping arrangements are very favourable with attractive bedrooms offering lovely resting spots, the master bedroom featuring an impressive super-king bed as well as an en-suite shower room and a balcony which overlooks the front of the house, with views towards the golf course and the sea beyond on a clear day, but best of all this is where the sun sets, so you can share a perfect moment sat on the balcony as the sun disappears into the sea.

The other bedrooms include three doubles, and a twin room all complete with built-in wardrobe storage and pretty furnishings, served by the bathroom which contains a classic slipper bath and a walk-in shower for the best of both worlds.

This is area is superb for exploring the natural scenery of the area, as in one direction you can travel to the Norfolk Coast AONB, and in the other you come to The Wash National Nature Reserve, both bursting with wildlife and stunning vistas to behold.

In the former a network of country roads, lanes and bridleways can be traveled by walking or cycling, bringing you through varied landscapes and villages, never being too far from a pub, cafe or shop to get some refreshments.

Head over to The Wash, the biggest nature reserve in England the most important wetland in the UK, as well as being one of the best breeding areas in England for seals!

Follow on of the number of footpaths to access the reserve to experience the stunning natural beauty of this place.

Sunset View will be sure to impress you with it's gorgeous layout and decor, and so will the wonders of the Norfolk Coast.

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.
