    “Fantastic stay.”

    ..no problems except it would have been more useful to have a washing machine than a dishwasher

The property

Tucked away from the bustling high street of Heacham, Norfolk, lies Tawny Cottage, a mid-terrace character cottage perfectly situated for an escape to the seaside.

Offering one highly-sought-after, off-road parking space and a generous front garden, this pretty dwelling is sure to be a hit with friends and family alike.

Step into the property to discover a neat sitting room, home to a wonderfully characterful fireplace hosting an electric woodburning-effect stove and plush leather sofas for you to snuggle up on after a long day of exploring the local area.

From here, enter the kitchen/diner, showing off its original beams and fit with all the necessary appliances for your self-catering needs, including a dishwasher and a large fridge/freezer, with the remainder of the space hosting a dining table for you to enjoy your home-cooked meals and catch up on the day's events.

You will also find a handy downstairs cloakroom.

Moving through the property and climbing the stairs, discover two double bedrooms, one with plenty of storage space for your belongings, and the other a smaller double bedroom - More characterful beams invite you to kick off your sandy shoes and get some well-earned rest after a fun-filled day of exploring.

Completing the first floor is a family bathroom, home to a P-shaped bath, shower over with on demand hot water, basin and WC as well as a Velux window breathing light and air into the space as you gaze up while relaxing in a nice hot bath.

Savour an evening glass of wine or cup of tea in the garden; the patio with furniture offers an alternative dining arrangement for those long summer evenings, the front garden is enclosed and safe for a family dog.

Give yourself a break from the cooking one evening and venture out into the town where you will find numerous cuisines; Spice Garden is a local Indian restaurant, or for the true seaside experience, Heacham Fish Bar is within walking distance from the property and from the beach, whereas The Mulberry Restaurant, located in Heacham Manor, offers a more decadent dining experience in the heart of Heacham's history, an 18 hole golf course is on site in Heacham for the keen golfers.

If you are travelling with younger guests, the beaches go on for miles and there are plenty of attractions within an hours' drive from the abode; SEA LIFE Hunstanton is a fantastic day out for lovers of the sea and its creatures, or for an action-packed day, visit Roarr Dinosaur Adventure, home to high ropes, mazes and obstacle courses and fun for all ages.

As well as luscious sandy beaches, the area has many beautiful gardens for you to stroll around such as Norfolk Lavender, Esplanade Gardens and Boston Sensory Garden, created in 1998 the garden was designed to appeal to all, so careful consideration has been taken to create such a tranquil space in the centre of a thriving county, the Queens country residence of Sandringham is only 7 miles away.

Historians and sightseers alike will relish in the fantastic National Trust and English Heritage sites in the area; Clifton House is renowned as one of the most important houses in Norfolk's history, the Grade I listed building dates back to the 13th century and is open to visitors at certain points throughout the year, whereas Castle Acre Priory is open year round for the public to discover the 11th century ruins amongst magnificent scenery.

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.
