The Norfolk Coast Path National Trail is one of the gentler National Trails and classified as ‘moderate’ by many walkers. The terrain is varied but is generally flat or with only gentle gradients. However, we would recommend that you allow a little extra time to walk the shingle bank from Cley to Weybourne.
The route is particularly suitable for anyone new to long-distance walking.
All of the glamping locations are situated right by the Norfolk Coast Path so there are no extra miles to walk at the start and the end of your days walking.
Yes, we are very dog friendly. We can accommodate up to 2 dogs and even supply everything they will need to make their MarGins Walking and Glamping Holiday as (P)awesome as yours. Check out our ‘Walk the coast path with your Pooch’ section under Walking Packages.
All we ask is your dog(s) does not get on the beds or chairs. We know how muddy our pooches can get having great fun playing in the marshes!
We must also stress that the walks are around 15 miles a day so please make sure your dog(s) are up to the challenge……
As we will be setting up the tents each day we have chosen the sturdy Oztent for your glamping accommodation. They are fairly quick to set up and will withstand any strong winds on the coast!
There is a separate sleeping compartment with 2 Oztent padded camp-beds and cosy duvets plus a living area with a small equipped cooking area and comfy chairs.
Also included is a scrummy hamper with a selection of Norfolk produce for your breakfast each morning.
All MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays are self-guided, so you can walk at your own pace and in your own group (or on your own).
The only time you will meet your Glamping neighbours is at your Glamping locations each morning and evening (unless you meet up or pass each other on your days walk….)
Yes, we will transfer one piece of luggage per person of up to 15kg. We will give you the locations of luggage drop off and collection points in your detailed ‘Information Pack’ prior to your holiday.
All you need for each day is a rucksack for your lunch, waterproofs, camera and anything else you chose to have with you.
You have a variety of options. The Norfolk Coast caters for all culinary tastes. You will be spoilt for choice each day on places to eat along the way.
Each Glamping location is within a short walk of great pubs and places to eat plus you will be walking through Norfolk villages and seaside towns each day with multiple choices of eating options.
Or you have the option to self-cater as your glamping accommodation has a small kitchen area with enough utensils to cook yourself a simple meal of produce you’ve purchased along the way.
We recommend you try to travel to the start of your chosen Holiday Package by public transport so you don’t have to find somewhere to leave your car or travel back to the start point at the end of you walk.
Hunstanton and Cromer are the starting points (depending on your chosen package) and both are relatively easy to get to by public transport.
Hunstanton has a regular bus service with the nearest train station in Kings Lynn.
Cromer has a regular bus service and a train station.
If you have chosen, the Avocet or Lapwing Package you will finish in Hopton-on-Sea which has a regular bus service and the nearest train stations are Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.
