Central Village Location
Built between 1720 and 1750, Holland House has during its long and distinguished lifetime been the village meeting house, a Dowager
house, a bed and breakfast and is now a Grade II Listed family residence. Located near the village church and a short distance from the
Victorian school building, this lovely old rambling home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a dining hall with an original inglenook
fireplace and a kitchen with an AGA. Period features include eight fireplaces, the old copper in the boot room, a Victorian kitchen dresser
and some old gas lamps from London Bridge, sited by the side entrance door. The garden is walled and within it is a separate annexe
located next to a large private parking area and an artist’s studio. There is a further garden with a variety of mature trees including a fig
tree, grape vines, a magnolia, bamboo plants, apple, cherry and plum trees.
DOCKING
All roads in North Norfolk seem to lead to Docking which is positioned between 200 and 300 ft above sea level, hence its original name of
Dry Docking. It wasn't until the 1930's that Docking finally got mains water! It's a busy village with a grocery store and post office, a doctor’s
surgery, a fish and chip shop, a blacksmiths and The Railway public house. There is a tennis court, a bowling green and a children’s play
area on the village playing field. The village is perfectly placed for the North Norfolk coast, Brancaster Beach and the Royal West Norfolk
Golf Club, being only 5 miles drive away. Hunstanton Golf Course is approximately 8 miles away. The RSPB Titchwell Bird and Nature
Reserve is home to Terns and Waders and the Georgian village of Burnham Market and Sandringham House are also close by. Fakenham
and Kings Lynn are the nearest market towns with regular direct trains running from Kings Lynn to Kings Cross.
