About Phil Rix
My wife and I have lived in West Norfolk all our lives and raised a large family (now mostly adults). We both work full time and family is very important to us - all the more so since we now also have 2 grandchildren.
Phil Rix purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Phil Rix chose Docking
Although we live locally and have travelled abroad for both work and pleasure the North Norfolk Coast is still a special place for us. The area holds so much for visitors to do and see and we never tire of exploring the many pretty villages or walking along the coast. We also have many favourite pubs and places to eat within a short drive of the property which we can recommend to visitors. We fell in love with Halfpenny Cottage the first time we saw it and although we looked at many properties we could not find another house that charmed us like Halfpenny Cottage. We hope you will feel the same after your visit.
What makes this Cottage unique
We have raised 5 children so understand the type of accomodation required for larger families or groups. Deceptive from the outside Halfpenny Cottage offers the space for larger groups, with 2 double and 2 twin rooms, a large living room and a garden room. Also with 1 ensuite, a large family bathroom and a downstairs shower room there is plenty of room to clean up when you get back from the beach.

Fantastic property in a lovely part of the country. Well worth a stay.
Cosy well equipped cottage conveniently situated for beaches and other resorts.
Enjoyed our stay very much. Burnham Market was well worth a visit. Very nice restaurants and shops. Brancaster Beach very good and enjoyed a day in Wells. Excellent fish and chips from Docking. The welcome basket in cottage containing apple juice, wine and cake was a nice gesture as well as milk in fridge to make a cup of tea. Also spent a day in Hunstanton.
We had a lovely week at the cottage.
The cottage was well equipped and we were very comfortable. It had everything we needed. The only problem was the TV - the signal was not consistent which meant you could not really watch the TV. Difficult also to get mobile phone signal everywhere in the house. Some of the party were ok but some were not.
Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. The cottage has a signal booster which sometimes gets switched off.
Unfortunately North Norfolk can be a bit of a lottery for mobile coverage and can depend on which network you are on.
Halfpenny, but not half-measures.
Great cottage, lots of space, plenty of crockery etc for the number of guests. Safe enclosed garden for children and dogs. Garden a nice little sun trap and a great 'snug' room which opens up to the garden. A good place for exploring North Norfolk. Owner very helpful.
Ideal place to stay for visiting the coastal towns & places of interest.
We had a very enjoyable week thankyou
The cottage was cosy, comfortable and well equipped. Appreciated the logs etc at the beginning of the week but by mid week we were enjoying the hottest April in 70 yrs. Lovely week and will definitely recommend the cottage to friends and family.
