This is a 5 day/6 night (7 days in total to include arrival and departure days) self guided walk along the Peddars Way National Trail. This will be organised by Explore Norfolk UK, so all you have to do is turn up and enjoy the peace and quiet along this historical countryside trail.
The Peddars Way is an historic Roman road. Follow in the footsteps of the Romans from the middle of Knettishall Heath which is just outside Thetford, all the way to the North Norfolk Coast. On the way you'll come across priory and castle ruins, ancient woodland , heathland and arrow straight Roman roads, as well as old burial mounds and ice age pingo ponds. This is a really peaceful wonderful walk.
The other highlight on this particular 5 day package is the accommodation that you stay in on your second night. This is a 14th century farmhouse that was originally built as a College for Priests. With a wonderful owner, and a home cooked evening meal, you won't want to leave this B&B! The price therefore includes one evening meal. If you would like a slightly cheaper option, please contact me.
The official Peddars Way trail is 46 miles which stops at Holme-next-the-Sea, but as there is no accommodation here, you need to continue to walk to Hunstanton, so you will be walking approximately 49 miles. However, with the extra mileage to and from the path, the whole walk is about 52 miles. This is a 5 days walking trip
