Oh, and no need to leave the dogs behind because they are welcome too!
Nestled in the heart of Docking village, Curlew Cottage is a stylish 3 bedroom property that ticks all the right boxes! Using the expertise of local interior designers Kate Thompson and Francesca Farrell, each room has been uniquely themed inspired by the majestic North Norfolk coast. Here you are perfectly located to explore Norfolk in any direction. Head north and you will be on the coast within 5 minutes where you can take your pick of expansive beaches and coastal walks, go west and visit the coastal villages overlooking The Wash and producing some of the best sunsets in the country! To the east you will find the popular village of Burnham Market with its plethora of independent shops, boutiques and restaurants, or head south and explore the historic market towns of Fakenham and Kings Lynn.
Entering Curlew Cottage is the definition of love at first sight! As soon as you cross the threshold into this stylish home-away-from-home, you will feel the weight of the world lift away from your shoulders. The entrance hall is decorated with striking Pheasant wallpaper, in keeping with the theme of the local area. Here there is a bench with shoe and coat storage so that you can don you boots and jackets before heading on through the house.
The open plan living area is filled with natural light from the lantern roof and the large bifold doors that overlook the garden and surrounding fields. This room is the hub of the house and the perfect social space for bringing your party together.
The modern kitchen is very well-equipped with everything you could possibly want during your stay, and more! Complete with an integrated fridge freezer, built-in oven and microwave, induction hob, dishwasher, Nespresso machine, Quooker hot water tap, kettle and toaster. There is also a breakfast bar lined with four comfortable bar stools.
The rustic dining area comfortably seats at least 6 guests around the large wooden dining table. Behind the table is a uniquely designed map of the North Norfolk coast.
The lounge area is furnished with 2 armchairs and a large sofa for sinking into after a long day out exploring! There is a wall-mounted Smart TV and a built-in electric fireplace – turn this on to create a cosy ambience and it will even provide heat if you want an extra blast after a chilly winter walk on the beach! In the warmer months you can open up the bifold doors and unify the interior and exterior spaces.
The equestrian themed snug is perfect for those who want to enjoy either some quiet reading time, to watch something different to the rest of the group on the wall-mounted Smart TV, or even those who need to work or study while away from home. Decorated with pictures of the owner’s old family horses, and original polo sticks that have been in the family for over a century.
The separate utility room houses a washing machine, tumble dryer, sink and an additional fridge freezer. Adjoining the utility is a ground floor WC which is decorated with wallpaper designed by local business Collingwood Coastal and features boats still being used on the North Norfolk coast today including sharpies, whelk, crab boat, mussel flat, Norfolk gypsy, Stiffkey cockle and Seahawk 17.
