Testimonials for Norfolk Walking Holidays

Testimonials.  Over the years I’ve had many excellent testimonials from satisfied walkers who have been happy to share their thoughts and kind words once they’ve returned from their holiday.  

I know how important it is to be able to read such testimonials as they then give you the confidence to take that extra step to go ahead and book.  As I am local and know the trails well, this should also give you the added assurance that Norfolk Walking Holidays is the best local walking holiday business to use for any Norfolk walks.

As this is a new website (but not a new business) most of the testimonials that I’ve had are written over on the sister website of Explore Norfolk UK but I’m unable to copy them here (the rules of Google!) so I have added a few here but you can also nip over to the testimonials page on Explore Norfolk UK and read many more reviews.   I’ll be adding more here over the next few years!

I have testimonials from couples, solo walkers, international walkers, friends and groups!

And you can even see other testimonials on the We Travel platform which I am using for the 2024 season and beyond!


I just wanted to say it was a very successful, and surprisingly sunny, holiday.  Thanks for all your work in making sure things flowed smoothly.

SR, Birmingham (walked the 6 day Norfolk Coast Path walk as a couple)


Thank you for looking after us so well for our second holiday from Cromer to Hopton.

We had a really good time and were intrigued by the difference in atmosphere.

It was sometimes a touch too hot but we drank plenty of water and had the occasional refreshing dip in the sea.

The food was good throughout I thought.  

I enjoyed Yarmouth with all its variety and generally I am very smitten with Norfolk"

CD, Essex -(returned with a friend to walk the remainder of the Norfolk Coast Path from Cromer to Hopton)


The Hunstanton to Cromer leg of the Norfolk Coast Path was a delight to walk.  No two sections of the path are the same --- walk through dunes and nature reserves, along firm flat paths on sea defence walls, through the salt marshes and tidal mudflats, on the beach and on cliffs .

The vast expanses of sandy beaches near Hunstanton, Holkham and Wells were impressive even to Australians . Even the shingle has a certain beauty.  Walking through the marshes and reed beds was a first for us and so different from all the other walking experiences we have had in the UK over the years .

Your choice of accommodation was excellent and certainly met our expectations . We would recommend them all . 

In finishing , Val and I would like to thank you for organising our itinerary . We have no hesitation in recommending Explore Norfolk's portfolio of walks.

I got back to the US late yesterday, and I've been reflecting on how lovely it was -- in large thanks to you! I so appreciated all of your guidance and the arrangements you made for me. Each place that I stayed was lovely. The walk was beautiful, and I felt very well equipped to do it thanks to the support, resources, and information that you provided!

CN, USA (solo walker - Norfolk Coast Path


Thank you so much for organising the holiday for us.  We only had a couple of showers and most of the time the weather was perfect for walking.  We saw lots of bird life which made the holiday for us.  The guidebook and map were very helpful but most of all your itinerary and notes were perfect.  Thank you so much again for all your efforts on our behalf.  We would definitely recommend you to anyone doing that walk.

B.E. Suffolk, (2 friends walking the Norfolk Coast Path)


Thank you for organising our walk. You did a brilliant job. The accommodation was brilliant and I liked the variety.  I loved the seals near Winterton and the cliff top walk past Cromer with gorse and wildflowers. Lots of very happy memories and exceedingly tired legs!

AG, Herts (2 friends walking)


I wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoyed my time on the Norfolk Coast Path from Hunstanton to Cromer. The path was wonderful, even better than I had expected, with a new range of walking experiences each day, the distances were just right for me, and the exceptional sunny weather (apart from that hellish 90 minutes of rain at Hunstanton just after my arrival!) was the icing on the cake.

Using your organisation made such a difference. Having such good accommodation all sorted out and being free from carrying anything that I didn’t need during the day made me far more relaxed. I started from Hunstanton feeling that I was going to have a rewarding, relaxing time and that was how things continued. At Cromer I even walked twenty minutes along the path leading further east before I went to the station for my train so that I could say to myself that I had started something that I wanted to finish, the second half of the Coast Path!

The information that you provided was so helpful, as were the excellent guidebook and map book.

I am so glad that I booked with Explore Norfolk this year.

S.P, Australia (solo walker)


I must thank you for the beautiful trip and the lovely and wonderful holiday I had thanks to you! From the first moment we were in contact I felt I had found the right person to help me plan what I had in mind.

All your directions and suggestions were perfect, the walks were amazing, and most of all: all the wonderful people I met and talked with at the guesthouses were people I will remember for a long time!

It is all, and more than I could have wished for, for my holiday!

E.V Netherlands (solo walker)


Just a quick message to thank you for organising our walking holiday on the Norfolk Coastal Path. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we returned yesterday feeling invigorating and refreshed.

You chose some delightful accommodation, thank you. Also your comments and advice within our itinerary where invaluable.

A&LC, Berks (as a couple)


Thank you, Suzy, for organising my walking holiday with two friends going from Hunstanton to Cromer in mid-March. It was my first proper visit to Norfolk and I enjoyed the vast beaches, the salt and freshwater marshes and seeing lovely birds - including an avocet.

The accommodation was very good, the bags all delivered from place to place, and all went smoothly!

I will recommend Explore Norfolk UK/Norfolk Walking Holidays

CG, Leics (group of 3 friends)


We always try and use local companies, so that's why we used you.  It was a very well designed package for us with lots of information and detail. Given the unusual circumstances, it was very re-assuring to have you on the end of the phone when needed.  We are all very pleased with what you did for us and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.  Thank you.

CH, Banbury (group of 3 men) 


We used Norfolk Walking Holidays (Explore Norfolk UK) because we wanted to use a local business.  The walking pack was excellent and the itinerary notes were definitely very helpful. 

Suzy used her extensive local knowledge to tailor our holiday to exactly match our requirements.  We would have no hesitation in recommending her to future travellers wishing to explore Norfolk on foot.

DF, London (walked as a couple)


A most enjoyable  walk.  Suzy was very efficient, answering our questions speedily and her pick ups were perfectly times.  We would unhesitatingly recommend her company for any walkers.  We will return, to complete the Norfolk Coastal Path, at some stage in the future.

N & L W, Warks (walked as a couple)


Norfolk Walking Holidays/Explore Norfolk UK clearly have a detailed local knowledge of the area being walked.  They were also very flexible in adapting my walk itinerary to include a specific extension to my walk that I wanted to make.

J B, Hants (walked as a couple)


We chose you because you specialize in the Norfolk area.   We had walked the West Highland Way last year in Scotland and while it was superior in scenery and varied terrain, the Norfolk coast offered more history and a lot flatter terrain.  The bed and breakfast accommodations offered very enjoyable and personal service, and most of them greeted us with coffee/tea and often homemade cake!  We would definitely recommend you.

J&MB, USA (walked as a couple)


The information that you sent to us and the arrangements that you made were brilliant (the best we have ever had on several walking holidays over the years in the UK.

.......the scenery was often stunning, especially the salt marshes"

CMcC, Bucks, (couple)


I had a lovely week, thank you.  All the accommodation and planning was perfect.  Thank you very much.

I am grateful for your last minute brilliance in arranging things and hope I might come back to you another time.   My favourite stretch was watching the marsh harriers near Burnham Overy Staithe.

S McG, London (Solo walker)


Just a quick note to say "thank you" for organising such a great experience for us.  The general standard of accommodation far exceeded our expectations and the arrangements for rooms and luggage transfer went without a hitch.

Considering this was a "flat walk" beside the sea, we found a surprising variety of landscapes.

Group of friends.


We made it back to the USA yesterday.  Denise and I would like to say a big thank you to you for such a great trip, everything worked out extremely well and our walk was memorable........all in all the vacation exceeded our expectations, so again Suzy a very big thank you - you did a great job with professionalism, knowledge and care.

C&DJ, USA (walked as a couple)


Just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful walking holiday along The Wherryman's Way. The accommodation was lovely, the transfer of our luggage smooth and your instructions faultless. We enjoyed the peace and varied landscape that the walk took us through and the distance each day suited us perfectly. 

We'd certainly be happy to do another walk in the future.

L&MD, Lincs. (their first walking holiday)


Having returned home from Norfolk yesterday I just wanted to thank you for your excellent organisation of the walk. Everything was absolutely faultless - the accommodation was very good, the bags were always there when we needed them and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We walked well and ate well!!  Even the weather couldn't be faulted, six days of sun, but with a breeze - the storm on Sunday arrived 20 minutes after we checked into the B & B!!

Thank you once again. We are already planning our next long distance footpath - the company we use have a lot to live up to! I shall certainly recommend you, wholeheartedly, to anyone I know wishing to attempt the walk in future.
