Peddars Way and North Norfolk Coast Path

The Peddars Way and the Norfolk Coast Path combine to make a very accessible 93 mile walk, taking in the best parts of the Norfolk countryside and coastline.

The Peddars Way is an ancient road dating back to the Bronze Age, then developed into a military route in Roman times and later used by pilgrims during the 15th century. The route is straight and flat following mostly green lanes and tracks with some interesting archaeological sites along the way.

The Norfolk Coast Path follows the coast from Hunstanton to Cromer for 45 miles. With interesting Victorian seaside towns, fishing villages, beautiful beaches and nature reserves with a wealth of bird life, there is plenty to see along the coast.

I just finished this trip and wanted to compliment you on the quality of your company’s service. The planning was meticulous, the baggage delivery was flawless and the location, quality and hospitality of the B&B’s in which I stayed was perfect for the trip. I called your offices twice during the trip and received excellent support. I think your team did a great job and made the experience of walking the C2C extremely enjoyable.

An incredible week: fabulous!  The organisation and information provided were first rate.  We had thought doing this for our first one would give us the confidence to organise next year’s ourselves from scratch but actually, we’ll be back to Mickledore for the Dales Way trek! Many, many thanks for making my 50th birthday adventure so memorable.
