Heacham is a popular Norfolk coastal holiday resort situated three miles from Hunstanton and eight miles from Sandringham on the A149 in Norfolk, England.
Heacham derives its name from its 12th century overlord Geoffrey de Hecham, and its river, the Hitch. Over the years the word and spelling have become Heacham meaning "The Home in the Thicket". Heacham has existed as a settlement since before the Romans. Indeed, evidence has been found here of passing centuries as far back as the stone age.
Today, Heacham is very much a thriving village community, lit by fabulously unique east coast sunsets and encircled by fragrant purple lavender and scarlet poppy fields. Visitors and residents alike enjoy the sloping beaches and the soft undulating West Norfolk countryside, which has remained unchanged over time.
Heacham's poppyfields are a spectacular sight to see in season and is a huge hit with photographers from all over. You cannot fail to be wowed by the sea of red spread across the fields as you drive past. In addition, the wide expanse of the famous Lavender fields in full bloom are also a sight not to be missed.
