Description

Half Penny Cottage is nestled in the picturesque, Norfolk village of Docking and boasts a lovely, enclosed garden.

Dating back over 200 years, Half Penny Cottage has been tastefully restored by the owners to maintain the charm and period features that you would expect to find in a cottage with such impressive heritage, while ensuring that all the modern conveniences remain, which are required for a great stay. The cottage is set in the picturesque village of Docking. It is constructed of local Norfolk flint, faced with mellow Holkham brick, and boasts exposed oak beams in many of the rooms, along with an open fire in the living room. Docking itself is within a quiet conservation area, just 6 miles from the bustling village of Burnham Market and 4 miles from Brancaster, with its beautiful beach. Beach lovers will be very pleased that they’ve chosen this part of Norfolk, as the stretch of coastline that runs from Wells-next-the-Sea, with it’s picturesque quay to Snettisham, with it’s RSPB Nature Reserve, is blessed with numerous beaches, quays and marshes, offering a new seascape for every day. There are lots of pretty coastal villages, offering great places to eat and drink and little artisan shops. Those seeking all the fun of the fair should head to Hunstanton, known locally as ’Sunny Hunny’, where the beach seems to go on forever, and you will find a Sealife Centre, traditional seaside amusements and a small fun fair. Heritage lovers will also be spoilt for choice with The Sandringham Estate, Holkham Hall, Blickling Hall, the Old Quarter of hanseatic Kings Lynn and Norwich, with its numerous museums and Norman Castle, all within easy reach. Those who know Norfolk will also know that it presents the opportunity for some of the best birdwatching in the UK. When you add in glorious coastal walks and great cycle routes, you will soon see why Royal Norfolk remains as popular as ever and indeed why Half Penny Cottage is such a hit with guests.

    Great place for our weeks vacation. Spacious and comfortable. The owner met us on arrival, along with a small starter pack. Great enclosed walled garden, safe to let your dog explore without worrying them escaping.

    A very cosy well equipped cottage. The garden is small but fully enclosed so good for the dogs. Only a short drive to Brancaster beach and the local pub serves lovely food and is also dog friendly. We would definitely recommend Half penny Cottage.

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this cottage. It is beautifully spacious and airy. We loved our holiday and plan to stay here again. We didn't want to come home!

    The cottage was perfect for a family with teenage children. It was very well equipped and beautifully decorated for Christmas. It was warm and we enjoyed having an open fire in the evenings.

    We spent a lovely week in halfpenny cottage. The cottage was clean and well equipped with plenty of room for visiting family. The garden is small with the second car parked inside but is secure and was perfect for us with dogs. The road is busy but wasn't intrusive and the local fish and chip shop was 2minutes walk away and excellent. We visited Old Hunstanton for our day on the beach and it is only a short drive away through lovely scenery and past a very nice pub for another stop. Communications were excellent from the owners and the whole holiday was lovely and smoothly organised.
