  • Most accommodation in Britain is charged on a Per Person basis (rather than per room basis). The price you see here for this tour is the Price per Person.
  • If you request a Twin Room there are two single beds (usually 3 feet wide) in the room.
  • If you request a Double Room there is one bed in which two people usually sleep (usually 4 feet 6inches wide).
  • Both the Double and the the Twin room are sometimes available for Single Occupancy (one person in the room), usually with a supplement to compensate the provider who would normally have received payment from two people.
  • If the accommodation offers Single rooms (one bed of 3 feet wide), this will normally be priced higher than half of a double or twin room. Unless space is limited in the village or accommodation we usually avoid these as the rooms tend to be older and less space to move about.

Tour description

A five centre inn-to-inn, self-guided walking tour in England on the Norfolk Coast Trail from Hunstanton to Cromer in Norfolk, England. 5 nights bed and breakfast accommodation, 4 days walking, luggage transfer, guide book and maps.
The Norfolk Coast Path is a relatively new and deliberately created way through a flatter area of England. It offers some fine walking, with some sections of bridleway, quiet roads and tracks. This Explore Britain tour begins at the seaside resort of Hunstanton and it follows the North Norfolk Heritage Coast, within an officially designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, history is never far away. The walk is a glorious patchwork of popular resorts and former ports, marl pits and agricultural land, cliffs and creeks, sailing centres and nature reserves.

You stop in farmhouses, country hotels, inns or guesthouses along the way, where accommodation is available in twin, double or single rooms, most but not all with private facilities. BandB and luggage transfer between the overnight stays is inclusive.

Grade

C

Grade Description

GRADE C: Between 9 - 12 miles (14 - 19kms) a day (the occasional day may be shorter or longer than these depending on location of suitable accommodation). Strong waterproof walking boots are desirable. A strong waterproof Jacket and overtrousers are recommended to protect you from rain and cold winds. This tour goes through some areas of remote habitation, and high mountains. You will do up to 2500 feet of ascent and/or descent a day. You will be walking through Farms and walking on Trackless Moorland. You will start walking about 9:30am and finish at approx. 5pm.

For safety reasons, you must be extremely proficient if you intend to walk alone. We strongly suggest against this. Ask yourself can you walk for hours, in driving rain and low visibility, confident in your map reading skills and morale boosting abilities? A friend in need is almost essential.

These grades are for guidance only. For any grade, depending on weather conditions, it may at times be damp underfoot, so waterproof boots are preferable.

Hello Philip Another spectacular walk. We really enjoyed Wales. All accomodations were great especially the Druidstone--lovely place and I think we had the best room in the house--top floor--balcony sea view. We may come back and stay a few days. First day of walking not hard but WINDY and wet. Rest of walk was in beautiful sunny weather. We did find some distances a bit off on hike descriptions ie from Marloes to Druidstone is 15 not 11 but we made it and it made the hotel even more special!! We hope to find another walk perhaps again a coastal one in Devon / Dorset area You do a great job and I have certainly reccommended you to many friends.
