Stayed here for a few days after Christmas with my husband and our three dogs. We were in need of a relaxing break with access to the beach for the dogs to have some fun and Samphire cottage did not disappoint in any respect. It is spacious yet cosy and had everything we needed during our stay. Angela even left us some mince pies and mulled wine for our arrival.
Docking itself is a lovely friendly village in a great location. The Spar shop really does sell everything and the pub just over the road was welcoming and had fantastic food. There are so many beaches within 15 minutes drive from the cottage but Brancaster is much closer and a fantastic dog friendly beach.
Thank you Angela we had a lovely break and will likely be back!
We have just spent a blissful week at this delightful cottage in the lovely friendly village of Docking. The cottage is perfect, cosy and just the right size for us and our two border collies. The village has a fantastic spar shop that sells absolutely everything you could possibly need. The railway pub across the road is a warm and friendly pub, that serves excellent food. You are only 4 miles from the amazing Brancaster Beach, perfect for morning walks with the dogs before you go off exploring the wonderful North Norfolk coast. You are never far from anywhere, a perfect location for exploring this beautiful area. We are reluctant to recommend this fab cottage for purely selfish reasons as we definitely want to come back :)
Spent a week here between 24/9-1/10/16 with my husband and our three spaniels and what can we say. A little gem in a lovely village. It was wonderful, we didn't want to come home. A beautiful locally sourced cake and bottle of wine were on the table to welcome us. The cottage is beautiful and we would love to go back, we had a great time. Thank you Angela your communication from booking was superb.
Lovely relaxing cottage, fully equipped with everything we needed for our holiday. Plenty of room for our party of four adults and a two year old dog. Pretty enclosed courtyard garden, modern kitchen, comfortable and relaxing lounge and bedrooms, luxurious bathroom. Village pub and Spar shop withing walking distance. Pizza van visits the village on a Monday night for a delicious pizzas. Fantastic beaches and plenty of dog friendly places for off the lead runs. Nice surrounding villlages to visit. Would highly recommend and would hope to visit again.
We had a fantastic time at this cottage and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing, cosy retreat to come back to after a hard day's work at the beach!!
The location is great, Spar shop 3mins walk down the road, decent pub less than 1min away (but very quiet). Docking also has a chippy (closed Mondays, but Eric's at Thornham is open and food still hot when we got home with it) and kids playground, and is only a short drive to some great beaches inc Holme, Brancaster, Thornham and a bit further the beautiful pine wood beach at Holkham. There are also charming market towns to explore nearby, Holt is especially lovely, but you can't beat Hunstanton when it comes to keeping children amused! (Old Hunstanton is also very pretty). Norfolk Lavender is only 5 mins away from the cottage and worth a visit.
The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, absolutely loads of room for two adults and a toddler, and the sunny courtyard garden is lovely to sit out with a glass of wine in the evening. The outside tap by the back door is a bonus for washing sandy feet... all in all we had a great time and look forward to visiting again!
Just spent 6 nights in this lovely little cottage with my husband and two Dalmatians.
It is very well equipped. Very quiet and peaceful. The morning sun in the courtyard is perfect for breakfast outside. The enclosed garden across the road is lovely for an afternoon/evening relaxing in the sun.
My daughter and her boyfriend joined us for the weekend and although the cottage is small and cosy we had plenty of space for 4 adults and the dogs.
The nearest beach is Brancaster which is glorious and less than 10 minutes drive away.
The pub, 2 minutes down the road, is nice and friendly and serves food.
With the open fire, I'd love to visit in the autumn too.
Definately recommend Samphire Cottage for a dog friendly Norfolk holiday.
