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.

The Whiting's, 19th of June 2023

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Holly Cottage it was very comfortable and handy for access to local beaches. As usual we spent a lot of time on the local beaches with our dog.

The Ruffy's, 7th of October 2022

We have visited Holly Cottage from time to time with our children in previous years. It was fun to return with a grandson and his parents this time! Thanks for another stay and this was ideal for four adults and a young child, plenty of space and the back garden was great for the child to safely run around in. As ever the North Norfolk coast is stunning and coming outside of school holidays meant it was easier to get around to see things and also park the car. Thanks again, we had a great time.

Holly cottage was excellent and thank you for the lovely welcome basket. The mid-term clean was very good indeed. With 3 teenagers we were not sure before going but everyone agreed it was wonderful.

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.
