Docking is a well-located North Norfolk village surrounded by unspoilt countryside, providing easy access to the area’s country and coastal attractions. The village has plenty of amenities with a village shop, post office, a pub, fish & chip shop and a large playing field with children’s play area. Being centrally located allows for easy access to the coast and surrounding villages such as Sedgeford, Hunstanton, Thornham, Brancaster, Stanhoe and Burnham Market. Within these towns/villages you will find plenty of things to keep you amused. With many stunning beaches, wide open spaces, spectacular coastal walks, an abundance of wildlife, award-winning restaurants, and plenty of unique, independent shops to discover. Most notably, the expansive sandy beach at Brancaster is just 7 minutes’ drive and gourmet gastropub The Duck Inn is a mere 4 minute drive away in the village of Stanhoe.
