Wavecrest in Heacham
"With central heating and a log burner, this is a perfect year-round beach retreat."
"Wavecrest" was originally built as a beach chalet in 1933 and has been completely renovated in 2015, with a new kitchen and bathrooms, while retaining the charm of original features such as the stripped pine floors. The house now has several large living areas, including a new first floor sitting room and balcony with spectacular views over The Wash. The total internal area is over 3,000 square feet, and there are two large balconies and a side deck. With its exceptionally spacious accommodation, the house is ideal at any time of year for family groups of all ages to come together and enjoy a holiday right by the sea.
