Archway Cottage is a delightful Grade II listed period property (circa early1800) with a traditional Norfolk chalk and carrstone facade.  An unusual property which is situated over an archway which in the past was the south entrance to Heacham Hall.  This charming 'bijoux' period property is perfect for romantic getaways and has open views to the front over Heacham village green and across to St Mary's Church.  To the rear there are numerous mature trees together with other period properties in this quiet corner of old Heacham.

This hidden gem for 2 is the perfect base to explore all that Heacham and the Norfolk coastline have to offer and the property has been thoughtfully renovated, whilst still retaining a number of period features and old beams which add to its character.

The property can be booked, if availability permits, in conjunction with Church View (Property Ref 2013) in order to accommodate slightly larger groups/families.

Note: On entering Archway Cottage there is a staircase which leads up to the accommodation.  There are also low ceilings and compact spaces in some areas such as the shower room and part of the bedroom.  We like to think these features add to the property's character – but it may mean it is not suitable for guests with mobility issues or children.

Why we love this property: Small but oh so perfectly formed, Archway Cottage offers holidaymakers a romantic getaway.

Sitting Room: Comfortable seating, fireplace, Smart TV and electric stove.
Kitchen/Diner: With built-in electric hob and cooker, microwave, fridge and freezer.  Dining table and chairs for 2 people.
Bedroom: Double bed, bedside tables with lamps, wardrobe and chest of drawers. 
Shower Room: Shower, wc, washbasin, shaver point and heated towel rail. Please note that this shower room offers a compact layout.

Outside: Sitting area with bistro table. Outside Storage: Lockable storage with space for bikes and golf clubs. 

Parking: Driveway immediately outside the front of the cottage on the lane for one car.  Additional roadside parking available within 50 metres of property.
Please DO NOT drive through the Archway and park or turn on the other side as this is a private road.
Heating: Electric storage heating and electric stove. 
Notes: Wifi, bed linen and towels provided. This is a non-smoking property.  Mobile reception – variable.  Please note that the driveway is shared and the entrance to neighbouring property shouldn't be blocked when parking.  Also, please do not drive through the archway as this is a private road and no turning is allowed

A lovely week at Archway Cottage – cosy and peaceful!

Lovely, cosy cottage in a quiet location.

Miss G,


Heacham is famous for being at the heart of Norfolk's lavender growing industry and in the summer, the landscape and air is filled with the colour and aroma of lavender. It is also close to the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path and several RSPB sites. Also worth a visit is Caley Mill, Gothic revival in architectural style and unique because of its exposed waterwheel on the outside of the building. The visitor centre has a tearoom and farm shop
