Docking is a popular village just a few minutes drive from many coastal villages with many long sandy beaches to explore. The neighbouring village of Brancaster is a popular place especially with families and dog lovers just a few miles from Docking. At nearby Old Hunstanton children can play in the soft sand dunes against a back drop of impressive beach huts followed by a paddle along the water’s edge.
A little further around the coast discover Wells-next the-sea; with picturesque harbour excellent crabbing can be had. The beaches are adorned with colourful beach huts and endless walks along the shoreline where you can often spot grey seals basking on the sand.

Take a walk along the beach from Wells and discover Holkham beach; a firm favourite including the Queen’s Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment. On summer days listen to the sound of galloping hoofs on the soft sand and watch the cavalry swimming, a glorious sight and one not to be missed. Directly off the beach is Lady Anne’s drive leading you to Holkham Hall which in itself is a great day out for the whole family. Set in a stunning 25,000 acre landscape it is steeped in history and home to the Earl of Lester and his family. With bicycle hire available why not explore the grounds amongst a shady woodland backdrop enjoying picnics in the summer whilst observing the fallow and red deer.

Reviews

Lovely little place from which to explore north Norfolk beaches, especially Brancaster, Holkham and Wells Next Sea. Cottage location was very quiet and peaceful, property super clean and good sized bedrooms and bathroom. Would definitely rebook this place.

Amy R,

I have stayed in many Norfolk cottages and I was very satisfied with woodcocks. Very well equipped and presented.

Mr John P,

A fantastic visit. Cottage is well equipped, welcoming and peaceful.

Mr John P,

Another fabulous week at this cottage. Cottage well equipped and very comfortable and so central to everywhere we wanted to visit.

Ms Deborah T,

A lovely cottage in a great location, close to local amenities. Docking seems to be central to a wide choice of beaches and towns - plenty to do and see. There is also a playing field just round the corner with a playground, great for picnics and activities. Overall, a fantastic stay, would come again.

Mrs Sally W,

Lovely place to stay, had everything we needed. Great location, very clean.

Phil D,

Great location. Lots of time on the beach, exploring the countryside and, of course, fish and chips.

Mrs Louise B,
