Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 5
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!
