Village

Docking is an attractive central village only 3-4 miles inland from the North Norfolk Coast, making a great base to stay and explore the whole of North Norfolk. It's a  traditional farming Norfolk village which boasts a village shop with post office, traditional pub and a fish and chip shop too! Its located close to Burnham Market within easy access of the coast with Brancaster to the north and Hunstanton to the west. The village also has a lovely church St Mary’s, village school and a ‘must visit’ farmers market which takes place on a Wednesday morning in the ‘Ripper Hall’ village hall

History

The village has an elevated position, in the past was nick named ‘Dry Docking’ as it had no water supply other than rainwater. In the 1760’s a single well was dug for the village providing domestic use for a farthing a bucket. The water was also transported around the village by horse and cart selling the water by the bucket.

Visit

There is such ease of access to all villages and attractions with Houghton Hall to the south and Royal Sandringham Estate and House also nearby. The superb coastline with RSBP reserves and all of the areas of outstanding natural beauty are nearby to explore. There also are lots of routes from the village for cyclists and walkers.

Guest reviews

We've had a lovely holiday visiting all our favourite places in Norfolk. New to us was hiring the private swimming pool in Hunstanton - a hit with our 3 girls. The cottage was lovely and cosy to come back to, and we've had sunshine but it's been cold! Love all the decor, colours and pictures. Very calming and relaxing.

The Stacey's, 7th of April 2023

We had a great week at the cottage, it wasn't too small for all 7 of us (including baby) for the weekend yet not too big for just the 2 of us plus baby for the rest of the week. We enjoyed exploring the beaches and would highly recommend breakfast at Thornham Deli. Lots of little extras in the house that we really appreciated - night lights on the landing, gro clock in the children's bedroom, binoculars for all the wildlife we could see out of the bedroom window! The shower was great.

Electric Vehicle charging

Cars may only be charged if there is an EV charging point fitted at the property. The cost of electricity is NOT included in the rental price and Sowerbys Holiday Cottages must be notified if the charger is used and an additional surcharge will be made. Due to insurance purposes, guests must never charge their car using a standard outdoor plug or an extension cable linking to a domestic plug.
