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


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.


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.

We had a wonderful time at Hilltop, thank you, it was just perfect, cute as a button:) Felt very much at home, thank goodness the weather held out. Looking forward to visiting again in November.

Louise, Leicestershire, 3rd of May 2024

Beautiful cottage . We had a week stay in this lovely cottage , so cosy and the beds were so comfy and a well equipped kitchen . We love the North Norfolk Coast and enjoyed Docking a great base for visiting so many places and beaches around.

The Porter's, 6th of November 2023

Have had a lovely weekend here. The cottage is great and very homely. Had a lovely meal at The Railway Inn in the village and can also recommend the Indian restaurant in Heacham.

Paula and Mike, 15th of September 2023

Totally unexpected short notice holiday. Never been to Norfolk before, definitely will be back. Can't fault the cottage at all. Ideal base to travel to anywhere. Absolutely loved it. Thanks.

Ali, Kate and Mabel the dog, 2nd of September 2023

Just to say thank you for letting us swop our dates. Great place to get anywhere.

Chris and Pete, 1st of September 2023

Such a lovely well equipped cottage. We have been impressed by Docking after usually staying on the coast roads. Managed to have a full week of sunshine and reached Brancaster beach daily (which the dogs loved!) Hope to come back again next year.

Cath, Steve, Rachel and Ian, 18th of August 2023

Thank you so much Hellen and Ben for letting us stay in your lovely cottage. It’s in the perfect location and really feels like a home with everything you need. The three of us think they are the comfiest beds, pillows and quilts.

Thank you again, we will definitely return.

Kate, Evie, Flo and Hattie the dog, 11th of August 2023

Such a perfect find! The cottage is so well equipped with the best beds ever. Hellen has thought of everything. It is so beautifully styled throughout – thank you. We love the location too. It is spot on for visiting so many places without too far to drive. We absolutely loved it here.

Richard and Alison, 28th of July 2023

A wonderful trip to Norfolk to celebrate a big Birthday. Hilltop is the perfect accommodation – it really is equipped with everything you could need. It’s in a perfect location, peaceful and friendly. When can we come back?

Joanne, Anne and Ezra, 14th of July 2023

We had a wonderful stay, home from home and an excellent base to explore. We felt very comfortable here and we will return. Thank you.

Helen and Ben, 11th of July 2023

What a wonderful stay! Dog friendly pub, The White Horse at Bracaster Staithe. Lovely walks on Brancaster beach. Evening out at Bar 29 in Burnham Market with cocktails and Socius for food. Here and there taxi Driver Dave was brilliant.

Adam, Nicky and Georgie, 11th of July 2023

This was our second visit to Hill Top and we enjoyed every minute. Thank you Hellen and Ben for the fizz in the fridge, a lovely touch. Had a lovely meal at The Gin Trap in Rindstead, delicious. Dog friendly and worth a visit if only for a pint. Thanks again for letting us stay in your lovely cottage, we will be back.

Claire, Amanda and Sophie, 11th of July 2023

Exactly a year later and we're back what a glorious week of sunshine in your lovely cottage. Another delicious lunch at Wiverton Hall. Explored Wells, ate at the Globe( highly recommend, but suggest booking as was very busy.) Also ate at the Wiverton Bell, excellent and much quieter.

Liz and Derek, 11th of July 2023

Our 2nd visit to this lovely cottage. Well equipped and comfortable. Docking is well situated for visiting this part of Norfolk. The village has a shop/PO, pub that serves meals and even a half decent chippy. Whats not to like? Spent our days visiting some lovely places. Fell in love with Wells and passed several happy hours people watching on the harbour and along at the beach. Ate at the Globe in Wells, which was excellent (no wonder its very busy) and the Wiveton Bell, which was quieter but still very good.

The Veitch's, 29th of June 2023

Lovely cosy cottage in a great location; well-equipped and laid out.. Great location for exploring the Norfolk coast and nearby wildlife reserves and then returning to relax in front of the log burner.

Super, well-equipped cottage in excellent location. We had some wonderful walks and Rowan enjoyed two swims in the sea at 'sunny Hunny.' Thank you for the fizz. On the food front, we had an excellent meal at The Duck Inn at Stanhoe and at Sculthorpe Mill and delicious savoury pies from the deli at Norfolk Lavender.

Richard, Mary, Rowan, Kirk and 2 Mini poodles ( Lottie & Frankie), 1st of July 2022

Robert and Sue, 1st of October 2021

We had a wonderful time. Everything we needed was at Hilltop and we look forward to going again in the future. Thanks for letting us stay in your beautiful cosy cottage.
We were quite lucky with the weather really. Had one particularly wet morning so we went to the Sealife Centre. A drizzly but manageable morning out at Snettisham Farm and deer park. That was particularly cute. The girls loved feeding the deer on the deer safari. Was a wonderful break.

Jo and Ian, 24th of September 2021

We had a lovely week thank you and the sun shone down on us. You have a grand cottage in Docking and we will certainly be back at some point! Thanks for letting us stay.

Rob & Sara , 17th of September 2021

Thank you for a lovely short stay at your very comfortable, well equipped, delightful cottage. The Windmill, the pine walk at Holkham, all the crab & mussels made for a fantastic change of scenery from city life. Look forward to some more good times here with some prosecco!

Paul, Kaye and Shadow , 21st of May 2021

A very wet weekend was forecast but a few showers did not stop cycling, walking or coastal path running and the sun shone for a most beautiful last morning on Brancaster Beach kite flying and even a chilly dip! All in all, a most lovely first stay in your beautiful cottage and this fab area.

Dave and Wendy , 14th of May 2021

Wonderful few days in this idyllic part of the country. Beautiful home with everything you need in a perfect location. We love Hilltop house and will be highly recommending it. Thank you so very much.

Mr and Mrs Meadows, 12th of April 2021

We’ve had a fantastic few days enjoying the space and freedom in the beautiful countryside and beaches of North Norfolk. Coming back to this beautiful comfortable house has been a real blessing. Thank you and for the bubbles.

Rebecca, Steve, Lucy and Rubee, 12th of April 2021

We had a lovely time thank you. The cottage is fantastic and is in a superb position to help launch small trips across N/E Norfolk. Our little girls enjoyed it too so it made for a perfect little getaway. Thank you so much for helping us get away! I’ll be in touch at some point to try and book another trip.

Ian & Jo, 2nd of October 2020

We had a fabulous time thanks. The cottage was beautiful and made our stay very comfortable. Our friends joined us for a couple of days and we had a great time enjoying the (very) hot weather.
On your recommendation we went to Titchwell Manor and enjoyed a very nice evening with good food.
Thanks again for everything we will certainly join the list of returning guests.

Frankie and Lesley, 7th of August 2020

We had a lovely break thank you! Over all too soon.

The traffic was quite bad but we did reasonably well on our outward and return journeys, both very hot days too. In addition to all the exploring we ate and drank far too much, thanks for the fizz btw, and generally felt so relaxed.

I’ll definitely be recommending it to friends as it was in the perfect location for so many days out.

Julie and daughter, 31st of July 2020

Super as always, thank you for the fizz. Very homely. Very comfortable. Covid-19 hasn't stopped us having an amazing holiday.

So very enjoyable. Many thanks.

Lesley from Loughborough, 4th of July 2020

Thank you for a perfect weekend in your perfect cottage. Beautiful weather bit of a strange one as places closed due to COVID-19 but it didn't spoil our break. Loved it!

Eleanor, Derek and Ringo the dog, 20th of March 2020

Fourth time here, always so lovely. People out walking on the beach supporting farm shops and local businesses at a difficult time with the coronavirus. We had an amazing time and just love Hilltop. Thanks as always,

Lindsey, Jo and Margot the dog, 16th of March 2020

Despite Storm Dennis it did not dampen our love of this coast. Cottage very good, well equipped and good location - no complaints. Local pub also served good food.

Tim and Karen, 14th of February 2020

We had a wonderful time thank you, the storm was strong but it didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves! Gorgeous cottage, so tasteful, the beds were so comfortable. The Duck Inn was fabulous and the deli in old Hunstanton. I will definitely be exploring that neck of the woods again the beaches were fantastic. We took my mum with us as it was my dads anniversary of passing, so it was very special to us! Thank you so much, I hope you get the time and opportunity to enjoy the cottage yourself!

Lynn from Leicestershire , 7th of February 2020

Thank you, everything was fine and we had an excellent break. Superb weather and those Norfolk skies were amazing. I am sure we shall return to Hilltop (for our third visit) when time permits, it is lovely.

Jeanne and Alan, 20th of January 2020

Fantastic Birthday weekend away. We had some fab walks and even ate breakfast outside as sun was shining. See you again soon. Thanks for everything

Jo, Lindsey and Margot the dog, 8th of November 2019

Thank you for letting me stay in your beautiful cottage, I just love it! I will definitely contact you again. I know this area well but have never stayed in Docking before, very much like it! Very well situated for Holme, Thornham, Holkham beaches etc. My dogs are very well behaved and after a day on the beach are just exhausted and simply go to their beds! Fire on. Just lovely. I'll be in touch. Thank you again

Louise and dogs!, 25th of October 2019

"Really lovely comfortable property and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Thank you, we would stay again."

Anon, 11th of September 2019

Hellen and family - thank you for a wonderful stay at Hilltop. We all had a fantastic time and the children loved their bedroom and the garden! We hadn't stayed in this part of Norfolk before but found that it is a great location and near to all of our favourite places. We plan to stay again soon.

Rob, Eve, Joe and Tino, 9th of September 2019

Lovely cottage, scorching temperatures, what a holiday, sad to be going home.

Steve, Karen, Jo and Andy , 30th of August 2019

A wonderful holiday was had and this lovely house has made it, so cosy and relaxing to be in. Thank you very much.

Alice, Gus, Emily and Bertie the dog , 16th of August 2019

Just as described. Beautiful cottage (prosecco!) Norfolk again lived up to all expectations. The seal trip is a must! The crab house, Wells, awesome; RSPB, Titchwell - perfect. Thanks we will be back!!!

James. Sally-Ann, Shirley and Keith , 28th of July 2019

Very comfortable, super beds. Perfect little gem. Thanks for the Prosecco. Very happy holiday can't wait to come back.

Paul , Janine, Sarah, Chris and Toddy the dog, Leicestershire, 19th of July 2019

We had an absolutely fab time thankyou, and yes the weather was really good. We couldn't have asked for better...Jess loved it too, although she is 12 she was like a puppy on Brancaster beach. We had a lovely meal at The Railway Inn and had some lovely sandwiches from the crab hut at Brancaster Staithe....we have a really busy time ahead , but dont worry we will be back. It is such a well positioned cottage for everywhere and the cooking facilities are fab too. Thank you x

Susan and Jess the dog, 17th of June 2019

Third visit, speaks volumes. Lovely meal at the Railway. Brancaster beach is Jess's favourite, we walked for miles. Discovered Burnham over Staithe and bought some lovely sandwiches from The Crab Hut. Busy year ahead but we will defo be back for another stay. We were very lucky with sunny weather.

Susan, Nigel and Jess the dog, Leicestershire, 17th of June 2019

Beautiful cottage, ideal location even the weather obliged for the 4 nights we stayed. Uut every day so many places to visit and so many are dog friendly. I think the dogs had a better holiday than we did and we had a very good short break. Highly recommend your lovely cottage. Thank you for the wine!

Ian, Jackie, Ruby and Lily, 7th of June 2019

Hill top was bright and airy feel with everything we needed, 10 out of ten for cleanliness.

Christine, 25th of May 2019

Just a quick line of thanks after returning from a splendid 4 nights in Norfolk. The cottage was delightful a real home from home, everything we needed. We look forward to going again and will contact you prior re availability.

The Brownes, 12th of May 2019

What a delightful little cottage, absolutely loved it. So cosy, well equipped and comfortable. Would definitely love to come back.

Len and Christina, Leicestershire, 12th of May 2019

Just wanted to say what another great stay we had at Hilltop! We loved that the family photo had been updated and it's such a lovely home from home which you sometimes don't get with holiday lets. We're already trying to work out when we can visit again.

, 6th of May 2019

Lovely cottage - perfect for our short stay. Has wonderful weather so not in much! Pizza van and chippy both a hit with our boys. The Hero and Burnham over Staithe is a lovely spot.

Alison, Simon, Rohan and Finan , 23rd of April 2019

Our second stay here and the weather was beautiful. We went to Brancaster beach, had lunch at The Golden Lion in Hunstanton with lovely views across the sea. Visited Burnham Market. Lovely long walk at Sandringham on the Sunday with free parking. Jess really enjoyed sunning herself in the lovely garden. The Prosecco is a lovely touch. You have to buy the local sausages and eggs from The Spar - they are fab - but for a bigger shop the Tesco in Hunstanton is ideal. Hope to be back next year.

, 1st of April 2019

Excellent cottage, very well specced and maintained - fantastic beach - looking forward to booking again in the future.

, 29th of March 2019

A wonderful cottage with everything we needed. All in all a perfect weekend. Can't wait to come again.

We're all unpacked and snuggled in. Thankyou so much for the gifts and the prosecco Hellen thats so lovely of you xxx Thanks so much for letting us stay it was lovely, we had some fabulous walks and the weather was very kind to us. Hope it's not too long until you get to enjoy some time there.

The Nolan's, 1st of January 2019

A beautiful pre-Christmas get away - just wish we could have stayed for longer. A lovely home from home which seems to get better each time we visit! See you in 2019 Hilltop!

The Pattinson's, 17th of December 2018

We had a fantastic time, Hilltop is lovely and will definitely be booking it again.

The Weston's, 26th of November 2018

What a find! Perfect cottage comfortable, cosy with a touch of class and luxury. Thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in such a welcoming place. We will be back for sure. Huge thank you xx

Karen, Ant and Luther Bear, Quorn, Leicestershire, 2nd of November 2018

Loved the cottage, beautiful part of the world and great for exploring. Had a marvellous meal at The Gin Trap, fabulous quality and value. See you again.

Rob, wife and two grandchildren, Derbyshire , 26th of October 2018

We got home yesterday evening after a superb four days in Norfolk. Your cottage is delightful and beautifully setup. Everything worked! Loved the clever retractable dog / children gate. Thanks for the Fizz!

Docking is a superb spot. That SPAR is brilliant, and proximity to the wonderful beaches is amazing. Sadly we missed the local chippy because they close at 8.00, which is the peak time for our local chippy! Eric's fish & chip shop is superb, I would suggest eating there since despite the relatively short drive back to Docking, the food was nearly cold by the time I was back.

Anyway, thanks... We had a great time and we hope to come back again.

Mike Lunch, 24th of September 2018

Our stay was lovely. The cottage is fantastic and I can’t recommend it enough.
Thank you so much for letting us stay.

Lucy Nesbitt, 21st of September 2018

"We got back from Norfolk yesterday and just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful cottage. We had a fabulous time - weather stayed dry and lots to see and do. The Railway Inn Pub is great and so nearby! We would definitely like to return so will be in touch to book again if that's ok - hopefully in the early part of next year! Thanks again - we loved Hilltop.

Emma and Iain Stephen , 7th of September 2018

We had a lovely week - thank you. Your cottage is absolutely delightful and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Especially the lovely wood burner in the chilly evenings. What a beautiful area - the beaches were amazing.

The Ovingtons, 1st of September 2018

Brilliant cottage with great facilities. Wells, Brancaster and Cromer a must – sadly no seals. The village pub a must even did scrambled egg for the dog. Chip shop and pizza van excellent. See if you can find the secret beach??

Maria, Taylor and Ted the dog, 24th of August 2018

Lovely cottage - comfortable and great facilities. A lovely base to discover this beautiful area. 'Shucks' in Thornham highly recommended and a seal boat trip is a must!

Mike, Tracey, Jamie and Rollo, 10th of August 2018

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous place. Thanks for the Prosecco – lovely touch. Walks from the door on quiet roads. Just a great area to explore Norfolk, Hunstanton, Wells and Brancaster. Disappointed not to see any seals. House really well equipped and comfortable. Village shop and pub great and saves travelling miles for one. Would highly recommend this property. Thanks very much. The dogs loved it

Simon, Collette, Jess and Belle, 13th of July 2018

Fantastic long weekend away in your lovely cottage. Great location, amazing weather – we will return. Thank you.

Clare, Sharon and Pip the dog, 21st of May 2018

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your cottage it was just perfect we had the BEST time. Thanks so much for the fizz that was so lovely of you.
We both want to book up again next year and take our men so they can fall in love with it too!! Ha ha. It's just far enough from the hustle and bustle but so close to the beach.
We went to Brancaster three times, Holkham to Wells one day then Sandringham yesterday which was superb. I go to Norfolk a lot and can't believe now that I've never thought of going there.
The Docking fish and chips were super and I have never seen a spar that good before. The village has everything you need.
You really are lucky to have such a super place xxx

Clare Nolan and sister, 18th of May 2018

What a fantastic few days! Great cottage and great weather. V.relaxing Thank you P.S go to The Railway – food was brill!!

We had a lovely stay. Went to Brancaster and Hunstanton and I'm sure we will rebook again in the future. Hilltop is a lovely well kept cottage. Thank you.

What a beautiful cottage, very well equipped, comfy and cosy. Ideal location. Bottle of Prosecco a nice touch! Thanks for letting us stay in your lovely cottage!

A great weekend away at this lovely cottage conveniently located 4 miles from Brancaster. Village has all you need from a stay with a well stocked store, good chippy and pub that serves decent food at reasonable prices. Hellen was so accommodating when we were forced to cancel our original dates due to the heavy snow fall. The better half was most impressed with the bottle of prosecco provided for our arrival! Thanks, we will stay again when back in the area.

All Sowerbys holiday cottages are supplied with bed linen and towels and the cost of heating is included in the rental price.

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. This is not permitted because of fire regulations regarding wiring, earthing rods and voltage restrictions; it poses a serious fire risk to standard 13 amp sockets and there is a real danger that the body of the vehicle could become live.
