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.

Location

From the Owner

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
