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.

A great week in Field Cottage. Well equipped, comfortable and cosy and a perfect location for us. Off road parking too!The weather was glorious for us, an added bonus, Norfolk blue skies are like no other. Hope to return next year. Walks at Thornham : exploring old Kings Lynn and the museum. Castleacre Priory and Binham Priory. Churches with angel roofs… South Creake in particular. And then the profusion of wildflowers and blossom in the hedges and verges…. Stunning, Oh yes Docking market on Wednesday morning was a delight!

The Goodwin's, 28th of March 2023

Fantastic location with close by amenities such as Spar shop, local chip shop, park and village pub. Field Cottage has easy access to touring Norfolk and visiting other areas of interest. For us it was a lovely bolt hole for dog walks on Brancaster Beach, Heacham & Hunstanton.

Anita , 26th of August 2022

Nice, light and spacious property. The garden was perfect for a dog, and the property was more than spacious for a family of 4.

The Shepherd's, 17th of June 2022

A last minute booking found us a great cottage and the booking process and follow up communications all excellent. Website pictures gave an accurate reflection of the property. Great location, ideal size for us.

The Orton's, 3rd of May 2021

A great family cottage!

Field Cottage in Docking was better than expected - It had games, tea/coffee etc. Little touches that made our stay more comfortable A perfect location - central to everywhere

Lawrence Family, 21st of August 2020

10 out of 10 for cleanliness and the garden. Clean and comfortable, feels like a home from home.

Sam Moody, 8th of December 2018

Better than Expected. Had a much more spacious feel downstairs than we were expecting and the "Welcome Hamper" was a lovely touch which we were not expecting - Thank you from all of us 10 out of 10 for cleanliness - It was spotlessly clean 10 out of 10 also for the garden. The best bit was the fact we all liked it!! Also, the owners have ensured the heating is set to keep the property very warm and cosy. This was very much appreciated by ourselves as not all rental properties will do this. We hope to come again and would recommend this property to others too.

Fiona Flynn, 2nd of November 2018

 Pics of the downstairs in particular do not do it justice.  Upstairs has been refurbished in a more modern style since photos were taken. 

The O'Byrnes, 3rd of August 2018

Very light and tastefully furnished with some lovely pictures.

My second stay at this very comfortable dog friendly cottage.

It is superbly situated to be convenient for beaches and town. It was beautifully clean when we arrived and the garden was very good being really secure for the dog.

We would definitely stay again.
