Great for families and on the Norfolk coastal path with two great beaches on the West coast overlooking The Wash: North beach and South beach (aka Stubborn Sands) are both dog friendly and form a huge 20 mile bay and enjoy the most dramatic sunsets. A perfect spot to watch the sun going down and hit the sea on a fine evening. The village enjoys a range of small shops, arcade, cafe and fish bar.

If keeping mind and body in check is your cup of tea, then a visit to Heacham Manor where you can dine, spa or book a round of golf on the lake side championship 18-hole course.
Famed for association with Pocahontas, the Rolfe family are the most famous inhabitants of Heacham, from the 16th century. After seeking adventure in The New World it was John Rolfe who married the Native American Rebecca (Pocahontas), and along with their 2 year old son took them back to his family home the former Heacham Hall. 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.
A visit to Sandringham House, gardens and country park is a popular destination for all. Whether you simply want to take the pooch for a stroll, or discover the royals much loved country retreat, you’ll have the grandest of days.

Great time all week. Lovely.
We had a great stay. Nice walks along the beach.
A lovely, well equipped beach chalet. Stunning views of the sea, changing tides and visiting birds. Not to forget the amazing sunsets! Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to take a four legged friend to the seaside. We have already booked our next stay
Perfect beach location. Great sea and sunset views. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable living area. Effective heating.
The sunsets are always a highlight along with dog walking on the beach. Also the local fish and seafood and the variety of pubs and restaurants within a few miles. Highlights were regular visits from a flock of goldfinches.
A wonderful place.The situation is the best, it’s not a disguised caravan as are some, and the decor is simple but really welcoming.
Cockle beach has a brilliant position with the back garden adjacent to the sandy beach. It is ideal for a relaxing beach holiday, particularly with your four legged family members. Nearness of the beach for those early morning or evening walks with or without your dog.
This was our 4th visit in 6 years and it won't be our last! We absolutely love the location - the uninterrupted sea view is what brings us back year after year. The amazing view and incredible sun-sets. Long beach walks. Bird-life. (We witnessed the 'Snettisham Spectacular' which was AMAZING!) The BEST fish and chips from Heacham fish bar!
Location, location, location. Couldn't fault it! Fantastic beach side accommodation. Flying a kite on the beach. Going for swims. Fantastic sunsets.
Easy access to the beach. Beautiful sunsets. Relaxing time. Long walks on the beach. Great visits to Sandringham Estate, Holkham and Wells. We had a wonderful time at Cockle Beach. The weather was very changeable unlike last year when it was blazing sunshine,but that didn’t matter. Lots to do in the local area. Found great restaurants this time, Silk Road II and Northgate Indian. Sandringham Country Park was a great place to walk with or without dogs and you only have to pay for parking.Holkham beach and Wells next the sea are amazing places to visit. The cottage is very well equipped and perfectly positioned. It has plenty of amenities for a family to stay and not have to bring too much from home.
We have been coming here every year for about 8 years. We have never been able to find another place like it for positioning - right on the beach.
The owners do upgrades most years which is great - and needed to keep it looking lovely.
It always restores and nourishes us.
Myself my husband and my dog Leo, had a lovely Stay at Cockle Beach. The Property had everything That we needed to make our stay comfortable. We stayed here last year and have already booked For next year. Such a lovely place to stay. The highlight for us is that the property is right on The beach, which makes things easier for our 11 Year old dog Leo.
Absolutely love this chalet, literally on the beach but fenced and secure for dogs and children. Best view 24/7 particularly the sunsets. Being on the first line of the beach is a unique position and provides hours and days of entertainment watching the sea, water sports, people watching etc.
This was our 5th stay at Cockle Beach. The location is the selling point. Can’t be beaten. The cottage has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Except for a fan, the evenings can be very warm an electric fan would have been very welcomed. We were impressed by the new paved deck area, a big improvement. Also the fenced area is now more secure for doggies. New front gate and safer steps. The Parasol was broken, it also requires a base so it can be used on the paved areas, for alfresco dining. Thank you Cockle Beach for another wonderful stay.
This was our second stay at Cockle beach and we were not disappointed! It's in a fabulous position and wonderful for walking our dog. We found the owner had fixed the back, misty windows since our last visit which made looking at the wonderful view so much easier. The view, the sunsets and fabulous beach walks with the dog. The birds are amazing and, in the summer there are plenty of places to eat and drink in the vicinity. wonderful holiday have booked our winter break already!
