Cottage
Fuzzy Duck Cottage is a pretty traditional cottage, approximately 115 years old, situated in the centre of the thriving village of Heacham. Whilst the cottage sleeps up to 6 people, we can offer a small discount for couples only using one bedroom. Please ask for details. 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 & nicely appointed Summer House. The cottage is always spotlessly clean & a gene...Fuzzy Duck Cottage is a pretty traditional cottage, approximately 115 years old, situated in the centre of the thriving village of Heacham. Whilst the cottage sleeps up to 6 people, we can offer a small discount for couples only using one bedroom. Please ask for details. 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 & nicely appointed Summer House. The cottage is always spotlessly clean & a generous welcome pack greets all guests. We also have a travel cot & high chair. We have stair gates at both the top & bottom of the open staircase. There are 3 bikes in the garden shed - whilst these are not part of the cottage rental - you are very welcome to use them, but you so at your own risk. 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 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! We are happy to discuss small discounts for couples only wishing to use one bedroom in the off peak seasons. Generally our change over days are Saturday to Saturday - but during less busy periods we are happy to discuss other days. Also out of season we are more than happy to accommodate midweek breaks. Please ask. If we've missed anything in the above, we are only too happy to answer any question or provide additional photos. Please don't hesitate to get in touch. PARKING: We often get asked about this, parking is on the road outside the cottage, as its a very quiet road this is never an issue and if you can't get directly outside the front door, there's always ample spaces to the left of the cottage. As you will see from our reviews parking is not an issue. Hope this helps.More

Interaction with guestsUsually the keys will be left in a keysafe outside the cottage. However, our neighbour also has a spare set and is also available should you have any maintenance concerns. He also tends the garden & will put the bins out for you. We are also contactable 24/7 on our mobiles. On a Saturday change over, the cottage is usually ready by 2.00pm, although officially its yours from 4.00pm. We always text to advise what time we should be finished. If we don't have guests in before your stay, you can usually arrive as early as you like. Departure on your last day is 10.00am.

Perfect!
We absolutely love Fuzzy Duck Cottage! Have stayed here a few times and cannot fault it. Excellent communication from the owners who always check to see if everything is ok. Lovely welcoming basket is always appreciated. NIce clean accomodation with everything you need away from home. Loved the new kitchen! We were so lucky with the weather and made good use of the garden. Heacham is an ideal place for exploring surrounding areas. A short walk through the village brings you to the beach. We walked along the promenade into Hunstanton a couple of times during our stay. Hunstanton, Wells Next the Sea and Sheringham are well worth a visit. Hoping to return next year.

Lovely Cottage
We stayed at Fuzzy Duck cottage in June and had a lovely holiday there. Excellent communications with owner, couldn’t have been more helpful. Really nice welcome pack on arrival. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need. Rally comfy beds and lots of storage space. Large garden. Friendly neighbour who puts the bins out for you and is there if you need anything. Handy for shops with Tesco Express within walking distance and a large Lidl on the main road. Good location, handy for the beach. It’s about a six mile walk into Hunstanton if you’re feeling energetic! - or five minutes in the car if you’re not. Lots to see and do, we enjoyed Re-visiting the north Norfolk coast. Would happily recommend Fuzzy Duck Cottage to anyone.

Found a gem of a cottage
We stayed in Norfolk for a few days in May. This cottage is a gem. Had a wonderful few days exploring the North Norfolk area and it was a pleasure to return each day to this very inviting cottage. Spotlessly clean, very well appointed, we wanted for nothing. Welcome pack was an added bonus. Owner was very quick to answer any questions we had. Couldn’t fault him or his cottage. Will definitely be returning.

Perfect home from home
Fuzzy Duck Cottage is one of our most favourite places to spend our holidays. We have stayed in this cottage a few times now and cannot fault it. This was our first time in peak season and we were so lucky with the weather. Everything you could possibly need to make your holiday perfect is available. The welcome pack on arrival was much appreciated and so was having the washing machine and freezer too. The cottage is spotless. Our grandchildren loved playing in the garden and feeding the ducks in the village. Trips to Old Hunstanton Beach and the beach at Wells Next The Sea made the holiday that extra bit special. We took a ride to Winterton On Sea and came back along the coast stopping off at various beaches. It took a while but was well worth it. Dave, Helen and Claire are the perfect hosts and make booking and other requirements so easy. We had a phone call on arrival to make sure all was ok which is a nice touch. There are pubs in the village for bar meals, a Chinese Takeaway, an Indian Restaurant plus Chippy and Tesco all withing walking distance of the cottage. We look forward to our next stay at Fuzzy Duck Cottage.

Great Find
Often holiday in north Norfolk and Fuzzy Duck is as good as any stayed at. It is spotlessly clean and the owners go beyond expectations with a call before and during the holiday - plus the welcome pack. The dart board got plenty of use and sunset at Heacham beach with fish and chips was one highlight of a relaxing week.

Lovely cottage
The cottage was lovely, very clean with good facilities and everything supplied was of a very high standard. It was equipped with everything that you might need for a great self catering holiday. Really nice extra touches such as the welcome pack and washing up liquid, ice, dishwasher tablets etc. There are plenty of nice clean dishes, pans, crockery and cutlery. (Not always the case in some rentals). Two TVs had good reception and a constant supply of hot water. The garden is really well maintained with several nice seating areas and tables. The summer house is charming and there is a darts board and boukes to play.The weather meant we could not avail of the BBQ but we managed to sit outside for our fish and chips one night picked up locally. Bed was super comfortable with crisp, clean cotton bed linen. Location wise the cottage is excellent with parking right outside and within easy walking distance of a Tesco local and two restaurants/take-aways and pubs. We didn't visit any of the pubs but there is a large Lidl close by for more shopping with a bakery and wide choice of drinks and food. We went to several local beaches and were pleased there were no crowds anywhere. It was a very relaxing break and I would highly recommend the cottage for a lovely stay.
