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.

Perfect base to explore the beautiful area. Cosy, clean and had everything we needed.Mrs debbie jackman - 13th January 2019
So impressed by the cottage. Visited Wells-next-the-Sea, wonderful place, beautiful beach, glorious day. Went to Sandringham, spent hours in the woods with Mother - unfortunately dogs not allowed around stately home or gardens but another lovely sunny day. Went to Hunstanton, on another glorious day, went to Hunstanton to have a walk around, after lunch went to Brancaster and RSPB Titchwell Marsh - had a wonderful day - all worth a visit especially to the lakes. Went to Holkham Hall - we were there for ages then went over to the beach & marshes- another lovely day for all three of us, Decided to go home a day early so we can sort out before work - had a wonderful week all three of us.
