Intoxicating Sloe Gin Cottage! Sloe Gin Cottage, in the delightful village of Heacham, is a charming and cosy home-from-home. Beautifully decorated and with a wonderful light and airy kitchen/diner, it was the perfect base from which to enjoy the lovely area of West Norfolk. There is a small garden at the rear of the cottage which is a day-long sun trap and makes a great place to relax with a glass of wine after a long day's sightseeing. The owners Angela & John were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We can give no higher praise than to say that we would love to live in Sloe Gin Cottage all the time!

The cottage is ideally placed within easy walking distance of the coast which suited both the adults and the dogs and the weather added to the charm of the cottage as with the evening sun shining the courtyard garden was perfect to sit with a glass of something cold and relax. Overall the value for money was excellent and we would both recommend this cottage to others and book it ourselves again in the future.
