The small seaside village of Heacham, located on the north-western Norfolk coast is the perfect quiet haven for a peaceful weekend break in the UK.
You could be enjoying relaxing strolls along the expansive Heacham and Hunstanton beaches, exploring the local markets of nearby villages or simply catching up on some quiet time, curled up on the sofa, in front of the fire.
At the same time, if your idea of a break consists of more energetic activities such as water-skiing, kitesurfing or canoeing, Heacham too, is the place to be. This coastal area of Norfolk often boasts excellent weather conditions for watersports and attracts enthusiasts to the region.
The village offers a thriving community amongst beautiful countryside and lavender fields. A number of small shops and pubs in the village can provide the essentials while anything else can be bought in nearby Hunstanton. Kings Lynn, great for shopping and history, is also a great day out if you're after something a little livelier.
For a place to stay, the cosy Kath's Cottage is a one bedroom cottage located in the heart of Heacham, just a 10 minute drive from the beach and a short walk from the village shops and pubs. It offers all you need for a cheap weekend break away from the daily grind.
For £232 (£116 per person), you too could be enjoying some last minute (and well-deserved) peace and quiet on this small cottage break. Booking direct with Sykes Cottages and staying three nights on a self-catering basis in November, why not head away and enjoy this long weekend break.
