I’m Gin, my husband is Mark and our adored pooch is Brylie.
We have always enjoyed holidays where we can immerse ourselves in the local area, without being constrained by agenda or commitments.
We like to ditch the clock and appreciate the freedom of exploring on foot, whatever the weather.
MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays was born following significant physical and career challenges. These challenges led me to reassess the direction of my life.
In June 2016 I walked the 84 miles of Hadrian’s Wall, loving every moment (even the sore muscles!). The feeling of achievement after completing the walk was immense, I just wish I could have bottled it.
We're Norfolk peeps and have a real passion for our beautiful county that boasts a stunning coastline, big skies and a range of diverse natural environments.
Our holidays will give you the opportunity to experience the Norfolk coast and make magical memories.

"When I started to plan this project, there were already a few people in my mind that I wanted to interview. These people had already entered my life and inspired me with their passion, their belief and their approach to running their business.
Gin Wilson-North was one of the very first people I met when I began networking over three years ago. We met at a Business Means Coffee event at the Holkham Studios in North Norfolk. Gin had set up one of her tents to showcase her business to the other delegates and she was an absolute hit. Not just because her idea was brilliant, but because she exuded all of the qualities of an inspiring entrepreneur.
The walking and glamping business she has set up with her talented husband Mark (who works for the Norfolk Fire Brigade when not running the business) might look quite straightforward to the untrained eye. But it is honestly anything but.
MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays is inspired out of a love of the North Norfolk coast. It is driven by a pair of entrepreneurs that are passionate about giving other people adventures and helping them to fall in love with our coastline. And their brilliant business is founded on the experience gained and skills practised over a decade of providing international aid relief to disaster-stricken countries.
Gin has always been an inspiring figure in my business journey, so I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to her and Mark to find out why they do what they do".
