About Hollyhocks Cottage

Hello. We are Beverley and Bryan, the owners of Hollyhocks Cottage. We are now retired and enjoy all the new experiences that follows a lifetime of working. We have 3 grown-up children who, together with their partners, all enjoy being able to chill out and relax at Hollyhocks. We all appreciate, the charm and tranquillity that time spent at Hollyhocks provides.

Hollyhocks Cottage purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Hollyhocks Cottage chose Docking

We love North Norfolk. The big skies. The white sands. The uncrowded beauty. The scenery. The peace and tranquillity.

We were living in Norwich when we bought Hollyhocks and the joy to be able to escape there at weekends. It recharged our batteries and renewed our energy.

We furnished it with our hearts including paintings that were special to us and high quality furnishings and tableware.

It was our own perfect bolt hole.

Docking is like the centre of a cartwheel. The most fabulous places are all within a short drive. Docking itself has the most amazing village shop cum post office, open all hours and supplying all manner of goods. There is a weekly Wednesday market and a good pub/restaurant as well as an excellent fish and chip shop.The fishing lake is two minutes wa

What makes this cottage unique

Hollyhocks Cottage is full of character. It is an old railwayman's cottage built in 1850 out of Norfolk red carrstone and local flint and still retains some original features. It has been refurbished to provide all the comforts of modern living. The garden is a real sun trap. It has a really homely feel and is very cosy and warm. It is a place where you can really unwind and forget the rat race.

A stay at Hollyhocks gives you opportunities to relax or pursue leisure and sporting activities* just take in the glorious local countryside, enjoy the stunning coastline for which North Norfolk is renowned, indulge in delicious country fayre or just simply relax in a warm, comfortable atmosphere

*Walking, swimming, fishing in nearby lake, cycling, horse-riding, visiting Stately homes etc

Guestbook comments from the owner

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hollyhocks Cottage and were sad to leave it as we felt so at home there! It was a perfect place for us to unwind and enjoy the lovely north-west Norfolk countryside and coast.
