Holiday Rental House
Previously a school house, this lovely conversion with contemporary attention to detail, is decorated in a ‘country living' style and is surrounded by a fully enclosed garden whilst being just a short drive to the sea. Several original features of the old school remain; the big red arched front door and tiled floors in the hallway. The ground floor is spacious with two sitting rooms, a good-sized kitchen, garden/dining room and a downstairs shower room. Equally perfect for a romantic short break or a relaxing family holiday, this lovely cottage offers flexible accommodation and a fully enclosed garden, ideal for children and dogs. With a beautiful open fire in the sitting room, you will love snuggling down together on the squishy leather sofas, watching television after a busy day explorin...Previously a school house, this lovely conversion with contemporary attention to detail, is decorated in a ‘country living' style and is surrounded by a fully enclosed garden whilst being just a short drive to the sea.

With a beautiful open fire in the sitting room, you will love snuggling down together on the squishy leather sofas, watching television after a busy day exploring, or enjoying supper and good conversation around the dining table in the spacious dining room with french doors leading out onto the terrace and garden beyond. The well-equipped shaker-style kitchen incorporates all the mod cons and there is a washer/dryer in the utility room with Belfast-sink which is also perfect for storing boots, coats and makes the perfect place for your four-legged friends to lay their heads after a busy day running on the beach. You will enjoy restful nights in one of the four bedrooms, which includes a master bedroom en-suite, with king-size bed and large walk-in shower. The family bathroom comes with a decadently deep freestanding contemporary bath and separate walk-in shower - perfect for washing those sandy toes and enjoying a relaxing soak. With fabulous walking from the cottage or nearby on Barrow Common at Brancaster Staithe, don't forget to bring your walking boots. Cycle Route No.1 goes through the village too, so enjoy cycling the narrow lanes full of poppies and wildflowers during the warmer months and you will be rewarded with glorious views of the coast and the wonderful wildlife and birdlife. Situated in the centre of the village of Docking, on a tree-lined road overlooking the village church, this is a perfect location for exploring the whole of the North Norfolk coast. Despite its central village location, the house enjoys a feeling of privacy and seclusion. The beautiful sandy beaches at Old Hunstanton, Brancaster, Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea are easily reached by car; and the popular Georgian village of Burnham Market with its independent shops is about a 10 minute drive away. The Old School House welcomes up to four dogs and there is off-road parking for up to four cars on the shingle driveway to the side of the property. Additional Information Up to four well behaved dogs welcome (small additional charge).More
