Rental Description

Docking Cottage is a charming two-bedroom cottage that is nestled in the centre of the lovely north Norfolk village of Docking. It comes with a delightful living room, a kitchen diner, a well-established garden, and plenty of character. Docking Cottage is perfect for small families.
Nearby attractions include Bircham Windmill, Snettisham Park Farm, HM The Queen’s Sandringham Estate, Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve, and the glorious north Norfolk sandy beaches. There is an endless list of gastropubs you should visit, Wells-next-the-Sea with its colourful beach huts, Holkham and the absolutely charming Burnham Market with its trendy shops, delis, galleries, and boutiques. One week in Norfolk will definitely not be enough!
Docking Cottage is a pretty flint and brick cottage that sits in the middle of a small terrace. A tiny front garden takes you to the front door which leads you into a very attractive living room. Here you will find a period open fireplace, a comfy sofa, a sumptuous leather armchair and a gorgeous bench seat. It is tastefully decorated in calm pale greens and ivory tones. The television and DVD player sit in a neat cupboard ready for your enjoyment. It is a lovely room where you can relax with a movie after a busy day on the beach or discovering north Norfolk’s many charms. The kitchen diner sits at the back of the cottage, a modern number with good appliances and a small dining table and chairs. A door then leads out to the garden.
Upstairs you will find two bedrooms, a master, and a twin plus the family bathroom. The master is bright and airy with attractive painted panelling, a comfy double bed and minimalist décor. The twin is a lovely room, perfect for two children and with a lovely welcoming ambience. The family bathroom comes with a bath.
Outside you will find a well-established back garden, ideal for families, for picnic teas and games. There is a small bistro table, chairs, and a bench if you decide to dine alfresco. It is a lovely spot to relax with a pot of tea or a glass of your favourite tipple along with your holiday book or the newspapers.
When you decide to leave this peaceful haven, Norfolk’s endless sandy beaches and big skies are only about fifteen minutes away. You should try the beach at Holme-next-the-Sea. It is wonderful!Docking Cottage is nestled in the pretty village of Docking. The village is very charming with cottages built with carrstone or flint, the lovely St Mary the Virgin Church that has a 14th century chancel and a tower from the early part of the 15th century, a pub, a post office and shop and a fish and chip shop. Docking market offers local produce at the village hall.
There are many wonderful beaches within easy reach of the cottage. Old Hunstanton boasts gorgeous dunes, soft sand, big skies and a sea full of wind and kite surfers. At one end of the beach you will find the lighthouse and, tucked in the dunes, are some colourful beach huts. The beach continues into Hunstanton where you can enjoy traditional family amusement arcades, shops and cafes. Just along from Holme-next-the-Sea is Brancaster, a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The most famous of the North Norfolk beaches is Holkham Bay. The beach is one of the most unspoilt and beautiful stretches of sand in the country. With a glorious semi-circle basin filling to form a spectacular shallow lagoon at high tides, this beach is famous for the closing scene in Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘Shakespeare in Love’. You can walk from Holkham to Wells, admiring the dunes, colourful beach huts and small rivulets and streams along the way.
Bircham Windmill stands in the heart of Norfolk’s undulating fields. It looks as it did over one hundred years ago. At that time over three hundred mills ground corn for horse and cattle feed and bread-making in Norfolk but today Bircham Windmill is considered to be one of the best of the few left. It is the only windmill in working order in this area open to the public. Visitors can climb the five floors up to the fan stage and on windy days will see the sails and milling machinery turning. You can buy yummy cakes and bread at the windmill and enjoy may treats in the cafe.
Bird lovers head to the RSPB nature reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham or to Holme Beach, Holkham or the Blakeney National Nature Reserve. RSPB Snettisham is home to waders, wildfowl and many other birds. Between August and January you will see tens of thousands of birds leaving the mudflats and landing in the Snettisham hides. You will experience spectacular aerial displays and watch huge numbers of pink-footed geese fly over from Iceland. The estate is also home to resident barn owls and that soft hooting is joyful. Pensthorpe Waterfowl Park is popular too.
There are plenty of historical houses to visit including Royal Sandringham, Houghton Hall, and the National Trust’s Blicking Estate, Felbrigg Hall and Oxburgh Hall. Sandringham is the much-loved country retreat of HM The Queen and has been the private home of four generations of British Monarchs since 1862. You can visit part of the house, the private gardens and St Mary Magdalene Church as well as taking delightful walks through the estate. There are frequent craft shows and other events in the grounds. The Holkham Estate is huge at 25000 acres. Holkham Hall is rich in history, architecture, and wildlife. The seat of the Earl of Leicester, this elegant 18th century mansion is still a much loved, lived-in family home which visitors can also enjoy. There are six acres of walled garden, originally laid out by Samuel Wyatt in the late 1700’s. Visitors enjoy the walking and cycling paths, the lakes, watching the deer, the tree top high ropes course with its swings, bridges and ziplines, rowing boats, canoes and kayaks on the lake and the woodland play area. It is an outstanding family excursion.
Golfers can enjoy rounds at Heacham Manor Golf Club, Fakenham Golf, Searles Golf Club, Hunstanton Golf, Royal Cromer Golf and Kings Lynn Golf Club. Not only do most of the courses enjoy beautifully manicured greens nestled in a landscape of dunes, they also come with stunning sea views.
The area is also excellent for sailing. Coastal Exploration Company offers a variety of options for day and half-day trips and sailing lessons. One of the most popular boat trips is from Morston to see the seals at Blakeney. There are plenty more boat trips, one being from Hunstanton which is five minutes’ drive from Holme Cottage.
If you enjoy a potter around the shops, Burnham Market and Holt are perfect. Brimming with unique independent shops, welcoming gastropubs such as the Hoste, cute delis, cafes, and galleries, all around a delightful village green, Burnham Market is incredibly popular. The August arts and crafts fair is fabulous with craft stalls, pop up eateries, puppet shows, alfresco dining and a very jolly atmosphere. Holt is another Norfolk gem, again with wonderful art galleries, eateries, and charm. Drove Orchards between Holme next-the-Sea and Brancaster is another shopper’s paradise with some gorgeous shops, Gurneys fish shop, an excellent garden shop and the famous Eric’s fish and chips and pizza restaurants. Just a little further comes the outstanding Thornham Deli. The Gin Trap Inn in Ringstead, just a few minutes from Holme Cottage, is famous for its fantastic range of gins.
