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

Comfortable, cosy cottage, well equipped
We had a great week at Hollyhocks cottage. Good location for birdwatching at Titchwell marshes, visiting Sandringham and King's Lynn. Cottage had all we needed, owners were helpful and responded quickly to emails. We would recommend it.
Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay.
Extremely cosy cottage and a great base for birdwatching.
This was my third stay at Hollyhocks Cottage - as noted above it is an extremely cosy cottage and again proved a perfect base for me to pursue my interest in birdwatching (It is more or less centrally located for getting quickly to Snettisham, Hunstanton, Holme, Titchwell, Holkham and Cley).
Thank you for your lovely comments
We are so glad you enjoyed your third visit and look forward to welcoming you again
