Heronsway is conveniently located within a short walk of the Norfolk coastal path and the glorious sandy beach at Holme (within a 15 minute walk) and a good local pub, The White Horse. It is only a short drive to the NWT Holme Dunes nature reserve and the village of Thornham with a wide choice of excellent places to eat and drink as well as Drove Orchards farmshop.



A pretty village which is a hidden gem located on the North Norfolk Heritage Coast. Holme has an expansive flat sandy beach, ideal for beach games and sand castles during low tide.

In Autumn Holme Dunes is a great area to spot migrating birds from the NWT Nature reserve with a number of hides and trails.


Holme is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is also where the 50-mile Roman Peddars Way walking route meets the North Norfolk Coastal Path. The village is also on the coastal hopper bus route for those of you that wish to travel the coast line. In the centre of the village is the traditional White Horse pub which has a splendid garden with play area to enjoy a bite to eat on a fine day.


As well as various military remains from the Second World War that can be glimpsed from the Nature Reserve, the beach is famous for the 1998 discovery of a hidden Bronze Age timber circle known as ‘Sea Henge’. Now on view at Kings Lynn Museum.


Old Hunstanton is the neighbouring village and the Golf club course boarders onto Holme. Old Hunstanton has some great eateries, lighthouse and fabulous walks along the unspoilt beaches. Hunstanton has its iconic striped cliffs, many amusements, Sea-life centre, leisure pool and traditional promenade. There is also a horse riding stables close by too!

We loved Heronsway and hope to book it again! Cannot think of ANYTHING negative. The cottage was spotless! Bathrooms are all perfect, great showers!!!! Beds are comfortable, very well done on providing king size beds. The kitchen has everything very well equipped! Garden is extremely well maintained and looks so nice. The decor is lovely. Well done!!! Keep the cleaner! Whoever designed this renovation is brilliant!
Parking is ideal. Honestly simply perfect! Unfortunately the Pub is currently closed for renovations but it simply means we need to come back! Loved it! It was the first visit to Norfolk for our Canadian friends (stayed with us) what a lovely introduction!
The cleanliness of the cottage, the perfectly enclosed and maintained garden, perfect for our little dog! The wonderful kitchen, fully equipped! Perfect location to access so many lovely beaches including Holme beach.The very comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms, nice touch with the showers!Thank you!

The Mine's, 30th of April 2024

This was our third holiday at Heronsway. The cottage is so lovely, clean and comfortable, with everything needed to make a home from home experience. The location is good for walking and close to good places to eat and shop for essentials. Would highly recommend. Although the weather was cold and sometimes very windy going back to a warm and welcoming property was a delight.

The Oldham's, 20th of April 2024

What a fantastic place. We had a great stay in this beautiful cottage. Benji was especially happy (that's the dog!) The garden was securely fenced and walled and had extra gravel areas for him to explore. Kitchen was magnificent, showers great, beds comfortable and the lounge warm and snug. Oh and I must mention the laundry room which was excellent. Great interior design and up to date appliances. We hope to be back very soon. Janice, Steven, Molly, Marek and of course Benj.

Janice, 11th of April 2024

Our third visit; lovely as always. Glorious walks - some from the door - and lunch in the garden on the sunny days. Coffee and scone at Norfolk Wildlife Trust cafe after a long walk also Old Hunstanton Beach Cafe.

The Atwood's, 6th of March 2024

Lovely cottage - excellently equipped. Holme Beach at sunset and Fish & Chips from Eric’s in Thornham. A lot of thought has gone into equipping this beautiful cottage - we were really impressed.

The Watson's, 26th of February 2024

A wonderful property, warm and very well equipped. Excellent WiFi. Very welcoming and perfect for a holiday on the North Norfolk Coast. The warmth of the cottage. The local and amazing complex of farm shop, fishmongers, fish and chips etc. The well explained house manual and recommendations for pubs and stores. Walking the North Norfolk coastal path.

Thge Patterson's, 20th of November 2023

Lovely clean cottage with a well equipped kitchen and nice furnishings.

The Lewis's, 13th of October 2023

This was our second stay at Heronsway this year. Everything about the cottage is perfect, well equipped, clean and comfortable.
The location is good for beaches, places to eat and shop that sell good quality food.
The beds are so comfortable, we slept well every night.
It was good to have the garden furniture out so we could sit outside to have a drink or lunch some days as the weather was good for our holiday.

The Oldhams', 29th of September 2023

Lovely property - very comfortable and well appointed. Great location for exploring the nature reserves and fantastic beaches.

The Bennett's, 18th of September 2023

Fabulous cottage with everything you need for a family stay - a home from home!
So many nice touches, well appointed kitchen and bathrooms and a large, fully enclosed garden. Would stay again and would recommend.

The Mason, 1st of September 2023

Our second stay here and it is an excellent cottage with everything we need and in very good order. Holme is a good centre to base yourself at. Being able to walk from the property to the local nature reserves and some beautiful countryside is a big plus. The village of Holme is a real gem.

The Reynold's, 10th of July 2023

We loved this cottage. The owners obviously love it too. Extremely well equipped and comfortable. I spent ages watching the bee's in the garden, which is beautiful. Taking the long walk to the beach every morning. The dogs were in heaven, as we were too Watching a Red Kite predate a Jackdaw nest - and the furore that followed. It was like an episode of Spring Watch.

The Price's, 29th of June 2023

Fantastic property - very well appointed, good set of kitchen utensils and pans and very comfortable to stay in. Hard to fault. The cottage is lovely - the nicest one we have stayed in, in Norfolk. For hosting especially. The location and village itself we know well and that speaks for itself.

The Clark 's, 21st of June 2023

As previous home owners in Norfolk this was a real home from home. Everything worked really well even for our 2 dogs. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect place to stay and will certainly return Having owned a house in Norfolk for 7 years and actually living there for 9 months it was lovely just to revisit old haunts and relax.

The Niell's, 19th of June 2023

This was our second stay at Heronsway. It was as good as the first. It was also the first time in over 40 years that we have returned to a holiday cottage. (We have 2,3 and sometimes 4 breaks a year.) I don’t think any further comment is needed.

The Cannon's, 20th of May 2023

We stayed in this delightful cottage 2 years ago and found it just as charming, clean and delightful as it was then. Comfortable, warm delightful. You'll love it and want to return.

The Howes's, 26th of April 2023

Highlights were proximity to the beach; we walked back for lunch each day and even sat in the garden on two days as it was so warm. The home-from-home feeling of the cottage where we feel so comfortable. This was our second stay at Heronsway; the first was Christmas 2021 with 4 people. This time just the two of us. We have booked again for next March as we love it.

The Allison's, 20th of March 2023

Beautiful cottage. Really felt like home from home. Immaculate inside, garden was dog proof, excellent facilities and location.Would highly recommend. Location was excellent. Visited local restaurants and pubs.

The Maskrey's, 15th of March 2023

Excellent property. Very welcoming. Very well equipped with everything you would need for a stay.Lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. Comfortable lounge and lots of space for two dogs.Great garden too. Very warm and cozy on cold days. Great place to come back to after a day out.

The Shoesmith's, 7th of March 2023

Excellent property. Holme is a wonderful place to stay. Cottage is big and beautifully furnished with a great garden. The side gate to the lane is great as the cottage is on the main road. Getting out of the driveway is a bit tricky.

The Dinwiddy's, 17th of October 2022

Fantastic property, best Norfolk cottage we have stayed in. Rare combination of comfort, attractiveness, practicality and really well equipped. Appreciated the detail in the visitor notes on dog walks and local places to shop and eat.

The Parry Family , 2nd of October 2022

Heronsway is by far the best cottage we have stayed in for many many years of holiday cottages in the UK, both with your company and other companies. Everything in the property had the WOW factor.

The Cannon's, 23rd of September 2022

Wonderful stay. Really well equipped cottage with everything we needed and in a great location to explore the North Norfolk coast. Welcoming and relaxing . A home from home.
