The Old Hardware is a beautifully presented spacious Grade II listed property. It has been stylishly refurbished (works completed September 2012), resulting in a cool, contemporary holiday home for 2 - 4 people. This is a perfect place to stay in the heart of the working village of Docking, close to Burnham Market and within a 10 minute drive of the beautiful North Norfolk coast, with its miles of wide sandy beaches and big open skies. This uniquely designed house with a classic/modern twist is a super place for romantic getaways with a smart ground floor living/dining room combining historic features and contemporary design. Upstairs is a gorgeous master bedroom - a lovely high-ceiling room with many original features such as large sash windows and timber floor. A welcome bottle of wine is provided upon arrival.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Oldhardware Cottage. Everywhere was clean, very well equipped and spacious. Car can be parked right outside on the road. Very handy for visiting areas on the North Norfolk coast. We would not hesitate in staying there again.
Return visit to a fab property
Ideal place as a gr8 base to visit all that north Norfolk has to offer, a wonderful holiday home from home! Will be back!
Clean, stylish and extremely comfortable. Will definitely be back next time I’m in the area
Beautiful home, wanted to stay forever
Thank you for an amazing stay, great Home, so clean and well presented! Bedroom so beautiful and the bed very comfortable! Thank you for the bottle of prosecco a wonderful start to our lovely weekend.
Definitely will be returning as still so much of the beautiful area to explore.
Comfortable house in a great location
The property provided a great base to see the surrounding area of West Norfolk. There are numerous villages nearby well worth a visit, in addition to the selection of beaches, only a short drive away. Very well presented inside with a comfortable bed, spacious bathroom and well equipped kitchen (perfect for cooking delicious local fish and seafood). The property was clean and very welcoming. I’d happily give a 5 star review if it wasn’t for the road noise in the bedroom. As mentioned by a previous guest, some curtains, rather than just a roller blind, would probably help this.
Not our first visit and not our last!
Comfortable, quirky, well equipped
and homely. We love this cottage, we are a family of four (two young children) and we like how cosy this place is and it's location to all our favourite spots (Holkham, Wells, Brancaster). The property sits on the road so expect some car noise, it's not a busy road but cars do bomb down it at times.
The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk Coast and its long, fine sandy beaches. Brancaster and Thornham are closest but Holkham and Wells are also worth a look.
We are 1 hour drive from Norwich airport and 2.5 hours from Stansted. Use of a car is essential.
Burnham Market is 6 miles away, Kings Lynn 16 miles, Norwich 38 miles and Holt 24 miles.
All roads in North Norfolk seem to lead to Docking. It's a busy working village with an excellent small supermarket and post office, a fish and chip shop, blacksmith, village pub, a large village playing field, tennis court and bowling green. Docking also has its own coarse fishing lake that is available on a day ticket basis.
The Titchwell Bird Reserve, home to terns and waders is close by as is the delightful Georgian village of Burnham Market. Unlike many other English towns which are dominated by multiples, Burnham Market has a traditional post office, butcher, baker, hardware shop, fish shop and chemist for all the necessities of everyday life, but there are also over 30 highly original independent and specialist shops, selling a wide range of exciting deli products, vibrant and stylish accessories for home and garden, smart clothes shops, and books old and new. There are some great places to eat, such as the renowned Hoste Arms which is a 17th Century old coaching house and is open all day. There is an annual summer music festival with professional musicians entertaining residents and holiday makers in various venues such as the lovely church of Burnham Westgate at the western edge of the village. From the end of November the village is beautifully lit with Christmas lights and it makes the perfect place to visit for Christmas shopping.
Sandringham and the market towns of Fakenham and King's Lynn are also nearby.
