About this trip

This is a 6 day/7 night (8 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.

Pricing and deposit are per person.  


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 6 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.

Length of the walk

 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 56 miles.  This is a 6 days walking trip

Day 1 - 10.5 miles/16.9 km

Day 2 - 12.5 miles/20.1 km

I'm Suzy Watson, and I established Explore Norfolk UK in 2013. This covers walking and cycling holidays. As I was walking along a stretch of the Norfolk Coast Path and being stunned by its beauty yet again, I suddenly realised just what I could offer visitors to Norfolk. Then a cycling route came along so I did the same for this! So, as well as living in Norfolk, I am here to give you the opportunity to book a fantastic and memorable Norfolk walking or cycling holiday through Explore Norfolk UK, a truly Norfolk business.


five days of serious cycling for two older cyclists with panniers. Not an easy route as there is so much which is politely called ‘gravel’ (sand, loose shingle, mud, as well as some much better off road surfaces). Explore Norfolk UK planned the accommodation for us, and would have arranged luggage transport had we wanted it. B&Bs, secure bike storage (although one bike spent one night outside), all very satisfactory. Suzy provided clear info about where we were staying, route info and some touring tips. And cycling UK provided other route info. And it was probably a bit cheaper than if we had done it ourselves. I already knew Norfolk, my companion didn’t. Wells next the Sea was the best overnight stop. , interesting sea history, old boats etc.

The trim was meticulously organised and all went to plan. Accomodation was all good and interestingly varied ditto the evening meals where we were always able to find a non-fish option [ we don't like fish which is a bit silly for a coastal holiday! Many thanks, Suzy. Jane and Chris

The weather was mostly conducive but there had been lots of rain and two days were dismally wet. The Peddars Way route was well marked and the guide book was helpful. On the Peddars Way most tracks were deeply grooved by equipment and bikes so that walking was difficult and at this time many puddles and boggy spaces had to be negotiated. In some places the puddles were so wide there was no option than to walk in blackberries or brave electric or barbed wire fences! So many tracks on the Coast Walk made the way sometimes difficult to follow. Some of the day trip distances were a bit long for us in the adverse conditions. The organisation of our trip, moving our luggage, accommodation, meal recommendations, transport and follow up was excellent. We would recommend highly WeTravel. Thank you for your care and attention to detail!
By Elizabeth D for Dax 11 day walk, Peddars Way/Norfolk Coast Path to Hopton on May 12, 2024
This was my first visit to Norfolk and I know I shall be returning. I had an amazing time - I enjoyed staying in all those lovely villages like Great Massingham and Blakeney, saw plenty of wildlife, and fell in love with Norfolk sandy beaches. The highlight of my Peddars Way was a visit to Castle Acre Priory - one of the most beautiful and tranquil places I've ever visited. The Norfolk Coast Path between Sea Palling and Winterton-on-Sea was a truly unforgettable experience with so many seals on shore. The accommodation was of the highest standard and the luggage was always waiting for me. Thank you Suzy for organising such a fantastic trip!
By Dagmara G for Explore Norfolk 9 day walk, Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path to Hopton on May 03, 2024
The trip along the Norfolk Coastal Path was well organised. The accommodation,apart from George & Dragon was comfortable and interesting, esp Hill House Inn, in Happisburgh. The George & Dragon is not walkers accommodation, as it only offers limited breakfast options. The walk its self is scenic & interesting. I would recommend Explore Norfolk UK if you intend to walk this trail.
