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.


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,

Amazing cottage, a wonderful place to stay in Norfolk. Lovely and quiet. The cottage was spotless and well equipped. It was a great get away over the Easter break and Docking was a convenient place to stay to reach other parts of Norfolk. Hopefully we will be back soon.

Miss C G,

Perfectly placed cottage close to our favourite beach at Old Hunstanton. Lovely and clean.

William K,

Lovely cottage, especially wood burner as weather very cold. Arrived late so it was nice to see light left on for us. Bed comfortable, clean everywhere and nice touch - biscuits and milk.

The Gray Family,

Perfect base to explore the beautiful area. Cosy, clean and had everything we needed.

Mrs debbie j,

After a working Christmas this lovely cottage was the perfect place to relax, unwind and have some great family time together. Thanks for making us feel so welcome with micne pies and milk, and everywhere so beautifully clean. Very hard to leave and get back to the real world!

The Jackman Family,

Perfectly located cottage for the beautiful north Norfolk coast. Beds very comfortable, cottage clean and very well equipped with essentials and more. As it poured with rain a tumble dryer would have been a godsend - really hard to deal with wet items. Brilliant Spar round the corner - everyone very friendly. Docking is a really attractive village with many hidden gems. Amazing walks at Brancaster and Burnham Overy Staithe. Great welcome and excellent food at the King William at Sedgeford (and dog friendly). Thornham Deli a must - so much to see and do.

The Butchers Family,

So impressed with the cottage. Visited Wells - wonderful place, beautiful beach. Went to Sandringham - spent hours in the woods with Mollie (our dog). Also visited, Hunstanton, Brancaster, RSPB Titchwell Marsh. and Holkham. Had a wonderful week, all three of us, thank you.

The Prince Party,

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. Thank you

Mr Andy H,

Happy times at Woodcocks! Well furnished cottage with great shower, soooo comfy mattresses and next door to a chippy too! Docking is well situated and an easy drive to Brancaster and other beaches. Upon return from beaches we found the outside tap to be most useful. Cottage has everything you could need and tastefully decorated. Perfect
