The image of Pocahontas adorns the village sign and also the St Mary's the Virgin Church.
For a great family day out and only a few miles away is Snettisham Park Farm. A working Farm with lovely activities for the family from egg collecting, bottle feeding lambs and pony rides to a ‘not to be missed’ deer Safari.
There are plenty of wildlife spectacles to explore, with tens of thousands of wading birds to observe from the hides at Snettisham Nature Reserve.
Hunstanton Town is just 3 miles from Heacham and is a traditional seaside town with the added addition of fun water sports such as kite surfing and windsurfing.

We first came to Beachcomber when the kids were small and returned a number of years. Having had a bit of a break (teenagers, house not big enough!), we came back with our now adult daughter and partner and it was perfect! So clean and well appointed, felt like coming home! Thank you for a lovely long weekend, we are looking forward to repeating the stay in the Autumn/Winter. Beautifully clean, weather for Feb was exceptional. Everything in the house was so well appointed and comfortable. Just a thank you.
Beachcomber has everything you need for a fabulous holiday but No 1 must be the location 👍
We had a lovely week at Beachcomber. The house is cosy, well-equipped and perfect for a beach holiday. We loved the location. The gorgeous conservatory gave fabulous extra space. Fabulous en-suite bathrooms! We would highly recommend it if you want a peaceful stay.
Loved the supply of books and jigsaw puzzles too. Also was impressed that umbrellas were available (not that we needed them fortunately) but a nice thought. We also liked the welcome gift.
Thank you to the owner - this was a lovely place to stay with nice quality items but a really easy going feel. Also very happy with service provided by Sowerbys. This was our third booking through Sowerbys and will definitely come back again.
Beachcomber was an absolute joy, the location was amazing, out of the house and straight on the beach with the dogs every morning. Such a cosy, comfy house with everything you could possibly need. Our dogs Elvis and Rhona had the best time. We will definitely be back. The location is amazing.
Really quiet. Big enclosed garden for the dogs. Felt like home the minute we walked in.
We have stayed in Heacham many times and this was probably the 5/6 time to Beachcomber. Which is our favourite. Fantastic location and very peaceful, lovely cottage and furnishing is of extremely high quality. There are lots of things to do & places to visit nearby. Seal trip from Blakeney was a lovely day out not managed to for it before and also Castle Rising. Love this property soooooo much I wish I could live there! Thank you to the owners who are kind enough to let us stay in their lovely home.
We had a great holiday good fun on the beach Lovely place to stay Would recommend Beachcomber as a great place to have a family holiday.

Once again we have had a wonderful relaxing week at Beachcomer. The accommodation was clean and comfortable and is situated in a superb beach location just made for dog owners! We already have made 2 more bookings as for us it feels like 'Home from Home' on every visit. Just so so peaceful and relaxing!.

Guestbook review: What a wonderful place and situated in a peaceful and fabulous location, with close promiity and easy access to the sea. We had a superb week's break with two dogs.

Had a wonderful week at "Beachcomber"...lucky to see a couple of amazing sunsets from the bench in the dunes. Brilliant location, with direct access to the beach which was excellent for walking my two Labradors.
Location was clean, spacious and very comfortable for teh pair of us and our 3 dogs.We will definitely stay at Beachcomber again but hopefully for longer next time.We know the local area and had a fantastically chilled long weekend. Good weather with lovely peaceful walks on the beach and fenland.
Great (and secure) front garden area for the dogs to mooch around in.
Fabulous as always, very comfortable, looking forward to coming back later in the year. Everything was perfect, even the weather behaved itself!Lovely walks for the dogs along the beach.Lots of wildlife, especially enjoyed watching the Red Kites and also the Barn Owl hunting most nights at dusk.
A well needed break came home refreshed.
Wonderful place to stay, very relaxing.
Perfect for our purpose. Surprisingly spacious, small but well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable and homely. Would hope to visit at least once a year.
It's a lovely property and the setting is idyllic. It felt like being somewhere like Maine in the States rather than the Wash! Probably helped that we had such nice weather.What a gorgeous property!
Warm, Spacious, proximity to the beach, enclosed front garden for our dog, well-equipped.
Loved our stay there, will definitely like to come again, thank you.
Excellent location,enclosed front garden,peaceful and relaxing setting.

Our 3rd year at this gorgeous property, we absolutely love it! This year the weather was the best it's ever been so made our stay even more memorable! Enclosed garden great for our dog, spacious rooms inside, lovely conservatory, but the best bit is being able to sit on the bench up top and admire the glorious sunsets! We will be back!!!!
The location and front garden, it's location - Stunning.
A secure front garden was also a major reason for choosing this property.
