The Location

The pretty village of Heacham lies in North West Norfolk overlooking The Wash . It has been a seaside village for over a century and a half and has two beautiful beaches which are among the few in Eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land.  

The Olde Dairy is situated just a few minutes walk from South Beach with it's pretty beach huts and golden sands.  There is a well stocked village store opposite the barn and within easy striking distance of all the amenities in the centre of the village.

Heacham is perfectly situated to explore numerous nature and bird reserves, coastal and rural walks. The renowned and well loved lavender fields are certainly one not to miss and while you are there you can grab some delicious local food from their café or alternatively if you are looking for somewhere to be wined and dined then head to the Michelin-starred Neptune Inn in Old Hunstanton.

If its stately homes you are after, there is no end of places to visit in Norfolk, including HM The King's Norfolk residence Sandringham House or Houghton Hall and Snettisham Park.

The village also has regular transport links to Hunstanton and also King's Lynn which has direct rail links to Cambridge and London Kings Cross.
