We hope you love staying at our home from home cottage as much as we do!

We had a fantastic stay in this lovely cottage. There is everything you could ask for provided. The cottage is homely and cosy with good quality and comfortable furniture. Lots of information was provided prior to our stay by the owners and the Welcome Pack was a really nice touch. Our 8 year old loved his room and didn't want to go home. Its in such a good location - a short walk to the beach and local pubs offering great food and close drives of buses to some great places for days out like Sandringham and the West Norfolk Steam Railway.. Would recommend this as a fantastic base.
This was the first time we had stayed at Carpenters cottage. When we arrived at the cottage, Teresa, the owner showed us around and also left us a lovely welcome basket which was a nice touch. The cottage was well equipped with everything we should possibly need for our stay. It was emaculately clean and furnished to a very high standard, and the bed was just so comfortable.
The location was within walking distance of the beach and you can even walk along the wide walk/cycle way towards Hunstanton, where they have great fish and chips!
We found the bus service in this area to be very frequent and reliable especially important for anyone completing the coastal and pedders way path.
Teresa was very helpful throughout our booking and nothing was too much trouble for her. I would highly recommend this property as a home from home to my family and friends.
We had excellent communication with the owner, who even greeted us on arrival (we were left a lovely welcome basket too). The cottage is clean furnished to a high spec including the bed linen - always a nice touch. My little girl loved her bedroom. The enclosed garden was a sun trap and a perfect size for small children.
Heacham itself is an excellent location, but the cottage is right in the centre of the village, literally a minutes walk from Tesco. We normally do an online shop for a weeks holiday, but being so close to Tesco, in hindsight we didn't need to. There are also plenty of take aways in walking distance.
The surrounding area is brilliant for shoppers and beach lovers. We love Brancaster beach and shopping in the local areas from little villages such as Thornham and Brancaster Staithe to the town of Holt which we particularly love. Bradfields in Heacham village itself was also a nice suprise. Sandringham is worth a visit as is Norfolk Lavender which is within walking distance.
We would definitely visit this cottage again.
I came across Carpenters Cottage when I was searching for a weekend stay for my family attending a wedding in the area. What a great find this was. The cottage is less than 5 mins away from the venue at Heacham Manor which was a perfect location for us and the property was like a home from home. It is very well appointed, the owners have taken such care to provide everything you need and many more special touches to make your stay comfortable. The beds were lovely and comfortable and the linen fresh and clean. The garden and garden furniture again perfect. The welcome basket with fresh eggs, lovely coffee and wine was much appreciated. The customer service was great, the description and facilities were just as described and the email and phone contact with the owner was clear and easy. I would definitely recommend this property and would love to return.
Such a lovely, clean and tastefully decorated cottage. The owner had made every effort to make us feel welcome. My 8 year old daughter loved 'her room!!!'. Tesco express is literally a 2 minute walk away which is extremely convenient. The owner kept in contact leading up to our stay and shared information about local attractions should the weather be bad. Would certainly recommend to friends and family and look forward to returning for another short break.
Carpenters Cottage is lovely. Very tastefully decorated, very clean, very comfortable, everything you need including extras such as hand cream, wipes, tissues and other toiletries. The welcome basket was much appreciated especially the bottle of wine! We also made good use of the pretty sunny walled garden and the BBQ. The cottage also has a secure garage which is perfect for storing bicycles. It also has its own parking space so no need to worry about going out for the day and not knowing if you'll have space when you get back. FishnChips and Indian Takeaway the shortest walk away and so is a Tesco Express. Would recommend this area for cycling as it is nice and flat. Route maps are available from Bircham Windmill (which is also worth going up) which use farm tracks and very quiet roads. A great way to go to Hunstanton is to cycle / walk along the sea wall. We had a lovely week and the owners are very friendly and helpful.
