Extra Amenities

Nestled in the sought-after coastal village of Heacham, The Old Gatehouse, is the perfect retreat for discerning guests looking for a stylish getaway with lots of indoor and outdoor places to relax. Part of the house was an old railway cottage, ideal for railway enthusiasts.

Boasting off street parking for three cars and an electric gate through to a parking space, this property will delight families and couples alike. With two sitting rooms and a sunroom and an outside decked area with seating and a bar you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding somewhere peaceful to unwind. With exposed brick and Norfolk stone and filled with the kind of personal touches that will make you want to linger a little longer, you may find it very hard to tear yourself away from this light, airy and chic property, but being so close to the beach, it would be a shame not to explore.



Regarded by locals as one of the best beaches in the area, Heacham beach offers a wide sandy vista that is perfect for a spot of sunbathing in summer or a blustery beach walk in winter, which is sure to blow the cobwebs away. The owners provide beach towels for your added comfort. Both Heacham golf course and the course at Old Hunstanton will appeal to golf enthusiasts. There is also a pitch and putt, public swimming pool and gym at Hunstanton. Farmer Fred’s big ball pit park and farm at Heacham Lavender, is ideal for somewhere to take the kids on a rainy day.

There is a selection of places to eat and drink close by, should you choose to park up and head out on foot, but venture just along the coast and discover the bustling seaside resort of Hunstanton, which is packed with even more dining options.

Here you will find a great beach and lots of traditional seaside attractions, including a small fair and a Sealife Centre. You can also take seasonal boat trips on the Wash Monster, which will take you on a sea safari to remember. You may even see some of the famous local seals! Travel a little further along the coast and discover an array of coastal habitats, including beautiful salt marshes, such as RSPB Tichwell Marsh Nature Reserve and quays at Wells-next-the-Sea and Blakeney - perfect for a great photo opportunity, or even a spot of crabbing.

History buffs will be pleased to hear that the Hanseatic Quarter of Old Kings Lynn, the Sandringham Estate and Holkham Hall are all within easy reach and you can travel a little further and enjoy a trip to the medieval city of Norwich or the Blickling Estate. Beach 1 mil
