Our Inspector's view

The Old Station was once part of the King's Lynn to Hunstanton Railway Line (click to see a short video) and although the last train left Heacham Station on 3 May 1969 this quaint English railway station refused to fade away. Since 1993, Terry and Judith have owned and operated the old Heacham Station as holiday accommodation and many have enjoyed this unique setting for a memorable holiday occupying either the original Waiting Rooms or refurbished railway carriage.

About the area

Discover Norfolk

The North Norfolk Coast is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and probably the finest of its kind in Europe. Here you’ll find a string of quaint villages and small towns – Holkham, Wells-next-the-Sea and Cley next the Sea are 21st-century favourites, while Sheringham and Cromer are classic examples of a good old-fashioned seaside resort where grand Victorian hotels look out to sea. Further round the coast you'll find Great Yarmouth, one of the most popular resorts in the UK and packed full of amusements, shops and seashore entertainment. And let's not forget Norwich, the region's only city.

Norfolk prides itself on its wealth of historic houses, the most famous being Sandringham, where Her Majesty the Queen and her family spend Christmas. Many of Norfolk’s towns have a particular charm and a strong sense of community. The quiet market towns of Fakenham and Swaffham are prime examples, as well as Thetford, with its popular museum focusing on the TV comedy series Dad’s Army which was filmed in the area.
