About the Owner

We are a young family and purchased the The Old Barn, Holme, in 2006. We carried out a completed refurbishment and modernisation and continue to make little changes here and there every year. We live near Stamford and travel regularly to The Old Barn to escape work and immerse ourselves in the sheer beauty of all that the North Norfolk coast has to offer.

In 2007 we also bought two properties next to the beach at South Beach, Heacham. We thought these would be perfect for our children to grow up around and play by the beach in the traditional way.

An Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is just great, all on one level which is brilliant when you have young kids (no near vertical stairs, as we have experienced in some holiday cottages!). The inside of the property is kitted to a high level all the bedrooms are very comfortable and the kids loved the TV's in each of them. The beach is literally a 5 min walk, there are plenty of shops and amenities in Heacham and Hunstanton. We were made to feel very welcome with some milk and cake waiting for us on our arrival. Overall it was perfect would highly recommend this property.

Neptune - What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The property more than lived up to our wishes! Not only was it an ideal spot (for us) between sand dunes in front of us and the Heacham Creek behind. The cabin was spotless and had been most thoughtfully & thoroughly equipped and the fact that a BBQ was supplied was great. Everyone in our party loved the balcony, and watching the wildlife. The owner was very obliging - nothing was too much trouble. Friends of ours booked into the next cabin along (owned by the same person) so we had a really good family time together. I would recommend either of these cabins - Neptune or Beachside - to anyone wanting a quieter type of break although Hunstanton is only 10 mins drive away and there are plenty of things in the area to occupy & amuse anybody.

Fabulous beach holiday in February!

  • 5 of 5

Neptune for us was a very welcomed pleasant surprise!

Its clean and tasteful on the outside and the same, only a few fold over on the inside. This accommodation accompanied by the fact that its a few steps from a beautiful beach sets you up for a great break. The interior design is aesthetically pleasing through its high quality of materials and finish. comfortable kitchen, modern bathroom and 'additional' wc. beds are comfortable too with a lovely panoramic view 'on waking' of the sunrise over a little river and fields to the rear, from one of the double bedrooms.

This place is well insulated and keeps very cosy.

We had a wonderful time here, with beach walks/runs, family meals and warming family board games in the evening.

We don't generally return to the same place twice, however Neptune has helped us discover a lovely British beach only an hour or so from where we live.

Thank you David for sharing Neptune with us and for a pleasant booking experience.

Excellant find

  • 5 of 5

Re-furbished to a high standard using original features blending with contemporary materials .A cosy heating system and tasteful fabrics makes this a grand cabin for all year breaks. Quiet and relaxing,great sunsets over the sea, with a river, open views across meadows to woodland at the rear. Numerous eateries and fine dining within 15 minutes. drive.

Neptune is next door to sister property Beachside which is ideal for extended families and offers the same quality of refinement.

Thank you for a most enjoyable stay.

A Beachside Haven

  • 5 of 5

I have to say I've never booked via Owners Direct before, but the whole experience has been fantastic. We booked a last minute break away at Neptune in Heacham for 4 nights during October half term. Our stay far exceeded our expectations.

David, the owner, was friendly, helpful and courteous in his immediate replies to our enquiries. Neptune itself? It's a little beachside haven. The pictures and description actually don't do the place justice. It's impeccably decorated, extremely clean, very well equipped and completed to a high finish; an impressive blend of seaside charm, contemporary design - with just the right amount of authentic quirkiness (I believe the place started life as a boat!). Neptune is everything you could want from a holiday let.

Booking out of season for an October break we were concerned the place may be cold - but the place is extremely well insulated, holds the heat superbly and was even toasty warm ready for our arrival late Monday night. As a result Neptune would definitely be suitable for staying in all year round.

Situated down a private road in South Beach, Heacham we had stunning views from the rear of the property over looking the river and panaromic countryside views from the master bedroom. We were especially thrilled though to find that we were located virtually on the beach - a 30 second stroll over the road we were straight on to a beautiful sandy beach. It was wonderfully quiet - perhaps it would be less so in high season. My 3 children loved collecting shells and having a paddle in the sea each morning.

Neptune is so lovely a low key holiday just enjoying the local beach would be perfectly enjoyable. However, amenities wise - there's a popular holiday park a 5 minute stroll down the road from the property, with a little shop and swimming pool on site. A little further down the road there's also a more well equipped mini-mart situated on the main road. Neptune is just a 5-10 minute drive from Hunstanton, which is a small seaside town, which has Sainsburys, Tescos et al in additional to some fabulous ice cream vendors and amusement arcades and bowling for the kids.

All in all I couldn't recommend Neptune highly enough - we will definitely be re-booking!

Location

From the Owner

Neptune is a perfect base from which to enjoy beach activities. A fabulous vantage point to watch the sun rise over the grazing fields and snettisham woods, through to setting over the sand dunes. Surrounded by nature and an amazingly tranquil location. Sitting out on the terrace overlooking the river is a stunning place to relax and pass time. The fabulous interior is a constant reminder that you are on holiday and away from home.
