Fuzzy Duck Cottage is a pretty traditional cottage, approximately 115 years old, situated in the centre of the thriving village of Heacham. Within close walking distance of all the village amenities and a 15 minute walk to the beach, the cottage provides an ideal base for a holiday in North Norfolk. The accommodation has been carefully refurbished to a very high standard throughout. Real fire ideal for cosy nights in. Both TVs include DVD players, plus a Wii games console. A selection of videos are also available, plus a number of board games. Large enclosed rear garden with BBQ. The cottage is always spotlessly clean & a generous welcome pack greets all guests. Two adult bikes also provided.
Walking distance from 3 pubs that all serve good food, 2 traditional butchers, one off licence & Fish and Chip Shop. For lovers of continental food, the village also offers an Indian & Chinese Restaurant. Heacham also offers a Tesco Express & small Co-op store for your everyday essentials. Hunstanton (5 min drive) has "full-blown" Tesco/Sainsburys.
For those that like the finer things in life, we are a stones throw from Bradfield's - probably one of the areas very best shops, selling everything from Hardware, kitchen ware to beautiful & unusual furniture - well worth a visit!
For golfers there's a number of fine golf courses within close proximity, including Heacham Manor.
For those that love wild life, its not unusual to see seals swimming from the beach, with seal trips also available in nearby Blakeney. Heacham is also ideally suited for bird watching being only a short distance from a number of brilliant nature reserves (Titchwell/Snettisham). There are 3 sets of binoculars in cottage.
For those with younger children/teenagers there's the funfair at Hunstanton.
Hopefully our reviews of the cottage speak for themselves!

"Lovely, clean and cosy cottage in good location."
We had a great stay at Fuzzy Duck. The cottage is clean and tidy with all modcons and more. The owners were incredibly helpful and left a lovely welcome pack of food and drink. The location was great for local amenties and the beach and we easily cycled to Hunstanton. Would recommend the seal trip from Morston and exploring Cley, Blakeney and Sheringham Park. We also went to the wave pool at Sheringham on a rainy day, which the kids loved. Would highly recommend Fuzzy Duck to anyone visiting the Norfolk coast.

The service booking this cottage was very good. Cottage was really lovely very clean and had everything you required for a short break. Welcome pack was brilliant. Location was ideal.
The friendly phone call on the first night and how the owners keep everything one a very personal level. Certainly hoping to book another short break with husbard this time.

"Lovely, comfy, and well-equipped cottage, in a perfect location"
We travelled to Fuzzy Duck cottage in Heacham from Nottingham, with our three kids (10, 7 and 18 months) and had a lovely week there.
The cottage, was in perfect condition when we arrived, and the welcome hamper was a great surprise! Everything we needed was supplied already, and the kids made themselves at home in no time.
The location is perfect for Hunstanton, Sandringham, Castle Rising, RSPB Titchwell and the kids loved The local soft play centre.
The local chippy serves great Fish and chips, and the nearby Tesco is ideal for picking up supplies.
All-in-all we would definitely recommend Fuzzy Duck cottage to everyone!

"Fantastic place to stay"
We have just had a wonderful week at the Fuzzy Duck Cottage. The cottage is fantastic, a real home from home and it is clear the owners take real pride in it. I cannot recommend this cottage enough. The village is lovely, with plenty of local amenities. We walked to the beach most days, it is a little way from the cottage but it's a pleasant walk so you don't notice it too much. The village is a great base for visiting some of the local attractions. Would love to visit Fuzzy Duck again in the future.

"A beautiful clean and comfortable cottage"
Fuzzy Duck Cottage is the nicest holiday cottage we have rented. It is so homely and comfortable and made our holiday to Norfolk. There is plenty to do near Heacham too. Our children loved the local beaches and we especially enjoyed the seal trip to Blakeney Point. We will definitely be visiting Fuzzy Duck again in the future. The owners gave us lots of helpful information and we were greeted with a lovely welcome pack on our arrival. We much appreciated the courtesy call too :)
Thank you so much for the lovely comments and also the kind email you sent. This is really our first full year of letting the cottage and we are delighted with the great feed back we've been getting. Regards Dave and Helen.
