Norfolk Walking Holidays

Take a walk through Norfolk's history at your own pace

Since 2014, Norfolk Walking Holidays has been delighting visitors with walking holidays on the Norfolk Coast Path and the historic trail of the Peddars Way, as well as some other fascinating and varied long distance trails and short walking breaks in Norfolk. 

I offer self-guided walks that allow you to explore all the beauty Norfolk has to offer with a personal touch.

Norfolk has so much to offer in the way of:

  • heritage, with its castle ruins and round tower churches
  • splendour and grandeur with its stately homes
  • stunning and unique coastal scenery
  • quiet and peaceful countryside and historic trails
  • chalk streams and ancient woodlands
  • windmills and drainage mills in the Norfolk Broads
  • exceptional local seafood, beers and cheeses

With Norfolk Walking Holidays, you’ll receive a local experience, and create memories that last a lifetime

The Norfolk Coast Path

Whether you are local to the UK or travelling from overseas, I will make your holiday worry-free, personal and convenient.  You may be an experienced walker who would like something a little less energetic, or perhaps you're a solo or beginner walker. You may even be a group of friends who would like to take a break together. Norfolk Walking Holidays will find a walk that it suitable for you.

Put on your walking shoes, and follow me into the history of Norfolk.

What you can expect to see on my walking holidays

I offer a number of Norfolk walking holiday trails ranging from long distance walks as well as short break packages and walks with interests to choose from.

One thing to note, Norfolk doesn't offer steep or difficult terrain (apart from one small stretch on the Norfolk Coast Path!), but I'll tell you exactly where this is and the alternatives if you want them! 

  • GREAT for those of you wanting a less energetic walking holiday, or maybe even if you're new to walking.

The Peddars Way has a long and celebrated history. You’ll walk in the footsteps of the Romans as they built and used the road to police rebellions in the territory around 61AD. 

Along the path you’ll find a peaceful and historically rich landscape. Wildlife, pine forests, villages, quiet country lanes and open countryside. As the road was built by the Romans, you will find long, straight stretches of road where you can enjoy the solitude or imagine the historic significance of the road beneath your feet.

The Peddars Way Norfolk Walking HolidayThe Peddars Way

The Norfolk Coast Path is breathtakingly beautiful. An endless sky above you and the sand dunes and beaches beneath your feet guide the way. You’ll find national nature reserves, salt marshes, cliffs, and lovely and welcoming coastal villages and Victorian towns. There is so much to see and experience in every direction you’ll welcome a brief respite to take plenty of photographs, take in all the scenery and relax in some of the lovely villages and towns along the way.

Check out our long distance walks here.

The Weavers Way is one of the new Norfolk walking holidays that is a completely varied and fascinating walk which starts on the Norfolk Coast at Cromer and ends up at Gt Yarmouth.  However, in between these two Norfolk towns you walk through the beautiful parklands of two historic stately homes, along an old disused railway line which has two wonderfully well kept platforms, woodland and into another part of the Norfolk Broads.  A few historic round tower churches appear right on the path and eventually the landscape changes dramatically to the flat meadows and dykes of the Broads.  

The Short Break Walking Holidays can take in varying forms of landscape and interests. There is also one short break that can be taken as a large group.

Discover the incredible stately homes of Sandringham House, Oxburgh Hall or Holkham Hall.  You can choose whether you walk amongst Ice Age Pingo Ponds, or pass an old priory ruin and a WWII interceptor station.  Instead of walking the whole of the Norfolk Coast Path you could take in the 2 best stretches.  There are lots of other choices if you don't feel like taking a long distance walk.

Why Norfolk Walking Holidays is your best choice

Being a resident in Norfolk, as well as living close to the Peddars Way specifically, I really do immerse myself in the landscape and culture of Norfolk. My experiences of living here give you an advantage you won’t find with any other walking company.
