This Norfolk beach resort looks and smells good, but what else makes it special? Heacham’s north and south beaches are sheltered, with shallow water. Perfect for kids. And how about the Highway to Heaven? It’s a sparkly trail the sun makes across the sea. Not a fast lane for hearses. Whew.
Farmer Fred’s Adventure Play Barn has a great soft play and tasty food. Older kids love the sharks and seahorses at Sealife Hunstanton – a quick drive away. Mums and dads rock out to local bands at the Fox & Hounds. Yeah, you’ve still got it. Honest.
Not convinced yet? Let’s bring out the big guns. Heacham’s also the birthplace of John Rolfe, who married Pocahontas. Her face is even on the village sign. Pretty cool, right?
Pocahontas married lord of the manor John Rolfe and the family lived together in Heacham over many centuries.
