Heacham

Location

Heacham is a large village located on the West Norfolk coast and home to two sandy beaches originally called North and South beach.Heacham has historic ties to Pocahontas who married John Rolfe, a native of this village on 5 April 1614 at a church in Jamestown, Virginia! The Church of St Mary the Virgin is the oldest surviving building in the village. It dates from 1230 and is Norman  in style. In the cupola on the tower hangs a bell dating from about 1100, making it the oldest in East Anglia, and the seventh oldest in the country.  The beaches at Heacham are on the east banks of The Wash. They are among the few beaches in eastern England where the sun sets over the sea instead of over the land. A perfect spot for a romantic glass of wine! There is a wide selection of shops and pubs and the delightful Heacham Manor Hotel with its 18 hole golf course. Also in Heacham is Caley Mill which is an early 19th century water mill and now the site of Norfolk Lavender which has all the known varieties of lavender and is open to the public. For the smaller people in your party, take a trip to Farmer Fred's Adventure Play Barn with it's 3D farm themed adventure fun!!  The village has three pubs, The West Norfolk, The Fox & Hounds and The Bushel & Strike.
