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. There are three local pubs The West Norfolk, Fox and Hounds and Bushel and Strike.


Famous for its Norfolk Lavender with aromatic gardens and fields filled with all varieties of lavender. With their own oil distillery, products, tearoom and animal garden and play park. Just next door is Farmer Freds Adventure Play Barn for children and parents to enjoy indoor play farm themed fun, as well as a great Farm Shop selling lovely local produce.

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.

Second time here. The contents of house are second to so well stocked on equipment..

The Homes, 9th of May 2024

Restful, with plenty of room. Kitchen has every utensil and facility you could want.

The Bostrom 's, 30th of April 2024

The stunning location in the dunes is this house's USP. So nice to be able to pop out to the beach, and the upper floor also meant could admire the view from inside or balcony. Spacious and well-equipped with good bathrooms, and with added bonus of games room. And Heacham was nice village too.
Very relaxing stay, enjoyed by adults, teens and dog! Watching sunsets and nature from the balcony or the beach, going for long or short walks on the beach.

The Mawdesley's, 23rd of February 2024

Beautiful place to stay, even for a large group. With the layout it allowed the 3 generations to have their own space or to all be able to gather in the lounge.
Foam Crest had everything we could wish for and more

The Harwood's, 17th of November 2023

This property is perfectly situated on the beach front and has wonderful views looking out to sea. It is very well furnished and has four large comfortable bedrooms. The lounge offers ample seating for a large family and the kitchen is very well kitted out with everything that you could need. There is also plenty of parking for several vehicles. Its position on South Beach makes it ideal for dogs as the beach is 'dog friendly and runs for miles in each direction. A well-equipped games room kept our grandkids entertained for ages. These is a great beach front cafe just a few minutes walk away should you decide to have your breakfast cooked for you. We would definitely stay at Foam Crest again. Easy access to the beach. Great location. Very well-equipped property.

The Cox's, 23rd of October 2023

Such a lovely beach side house. Plenty of room and a real home from home. Kitchen has all the things you would need. This is the second time we have been and we would love to go back.

Anon, 8th of June 2019

It's a superb property, superbly well equipped. With wonderful views from the lounge balconies and a great games room.

Bye, 2nd of June 2019

Better than Expected. The property was very well equipped, spacious and lovely and snug 10 out of 10 for cleanliness. Very impressed throughout Very relaxing, and beautifully warm. We had lots of wind and rain during our stay but it never got into the property. So many windows it was beautifully light and airy even when it was dull outside. Lots of different areas to relax in comfy chairs/sofas. Gorgeous bathrooms with amazing showers. All superb. The property was very well equipped we had everything and more than we needed We had a really relaxing and peaceful stay. The time of year meant that there were only a few dog walkers on the beach so we spent our time in relative solitude which were greatly appreciated. Sometime's properties feel quite sparse and unwelcoming, or over the top with personal items that you feel you are intruding on the family, but Foam Crest was just right, lovely seaside related bits and pieces and a couple of personal photos/information - just right.

Diane Davis, 30th of November 2018

We love Foam Crest and have booked again for August 2019! The location is perfect. Open the back door and you are on an unspoilt beach with fabulous sunsets over the Wash. The kitchen has everything you need and more besides. Loads of room for everyone around massive dining table. Three bedrooms have an ensuites plus another toilet in laundry room. Shower at front door that stretches outside to clean sandy dogs. Upstairs the lounge has very comfortable reclining chairs and leather settees. The sea facing balcony is perfect for watching sunsets and star gazing. Loads of parking space. We had an amazing three generation family holiday.

Stevens family, 10th of August 2018

It is always a pleasure to arrive here!

Very comfortable all round.
The beach was our garden which was amazing to see in the mornings and evening.
The lounge was such an amazing space to watch the sea and sunset at night.
Lovely property.

Phillippo Family, 29th of December 2017

Location was exceptional and the house had everything I needed - really good.

Cunningham Party, 6th of October 2017

Foam Crest" was a fantastic discovery for us. The accommodation, house or whatever you would like to call it, was absolutely brilliant ! We cannot find enough words to describe how pleased we all were, from my grandchildren, son and daughter and husband, everybody was really pleased with everything, so much so that several other forthcoming occasions are now under consideration for bookings !

It is a venue that we have already forwarded information on to some friends of ours and I am sure that they will want to experience the same.

It was a brilliant few days, all made possible because of "Foam Crest" and the owners must be congratulated on such a great home.

Best wishes,

Julie Belson

We recently rented your rental property 'Foam Crest' at Heacham. We were completely delighted with the property rented and the help from your office staff. The property was a complete joy - a wonderfully situated beach property. We loved the way it was furnished and stocked. Well done to all concerned.
