Lovely house in a good location
We stayed in the house for 4 nights during the half term holidays and we had a lovely time. Firstly the communication was very good which made the booking process easy. We stayed as group of 3 adults and 5 children (ranging from 1 to 7 years old) and the house was a lovely space for us all. We had a high chair, stair gates, travel cot and toys left for us to use which was great (the kids loved the wooden train set). The location is wonderful for exploring the very child friendly north Norfolk coastline, but you will need a car as the house is in a tiny village. The house has a lovely little cottage garden and it is practically opposite a 'fish and chip' shop which is extremely handy. We had a great stay, thank you.
Lovely cottage. Only one problem, not enough hooks or places to hang clothes. It would have been useful to have known that there were no coat hangers!
What a wonderful place to stay ...everything we wanted and more .. for a very special event - my daughter's wedding. We had a lovely family time in this beautiful house. Thank you for making it so special.
Pleasantly located and near to many places of interest. Cottage well laid out with sufficient room for 6 persons. Enjoyed a family get-together.
Beautiful clean property . Lovely spot in the village.
We loved the property. It had everything we needed for our large group. The kitchen had everything we needed for eating in and the chip shop opposite was handy for our takeaway . The property was well situated for exploring the North Norfolk coast and surrounding area. The village is lovely too. Would definitely return to this perfect property. We loved it !!
Spacious well equipped cottage. We loved the little courtyard garden and appreciated the plants.
The cottage was exactly as advertised, with a lovely welcome pack which included a bottle of prosecco. A very well designed , modern conversion which suited all of us and was safe for my 18 month old granddaughter. Very close to the sea and conveniently near the chippie ! We hope to come back!
The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk Coast and its long, fine sandy beaches. Brancaster and Thornham are closest but Holkham and Wells are also worth a look.
We are 1 hour drive from Norwich airport and 2.5 hours from Stansted. The closest train station is Kings Lynn (20 minutes drive). Car hire and taxis are available in Lynn.
Burnham Market is 6 miles away, Kings Lynn 16 miles, Norwich 38 miles and Holt 24 miles.
All roads in North Norfolk seem to lead to Docking. It's a busy working village with an excellent small supermarket and post office, a fish and chip shop, blacksmith, village pub, a large village playing field, tennis court and bowling green. Docking also has its own coarse fishing lake that is available on a day ticket basis.
