A historic cottage in the pretty & well placed village of Docking. Parts of Chase Cottage date back to the 1700s (so there are steeper than usual steps and a few low door frames!) and was once Boydens, the village general store.
Here's a few examples of the reviews we have been left on our hosting page:
"Excellent accommodation met all our needs. Broadband fantastic."
"Very nice charming cottage well equipped. Very clear instructions of what to do upon arrival and departure. A pleasant and perfect stay to visit the surroundings."
"I stayed at Chase Cottage while in the area for work. The cottage is lovely , well kept and has everything you need. There is plenty of room for an entire family. I was there by myself and all I could think about is how much my children would have loved to have been there. Beds are great and Docking is a wonderful village. This was cheaper and better appointed than nearby hotel options. Highly recommended."
"It is a beautiful character cottage with loads of charm that is very well equipped. Sitting front of the log fire in the chilly evenings was a real treat."
"Our favourite features were the wood burning fire, modern country style design, and of course the dishwasher... the HD tv and fast internet was a pretty nice addition too."
