The Avocet

Walk the full 84 miles of the Norfolk Coast Path National Trail.

Take advantage of experiencing one of the UK's most spectacular coastlines and immerse yourself in the sheer beauty of the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Start your walk on a Sunday or Monday from the Victorian seaside resort of Hunstanton on the North Norfolk coast and then you will gradually make your way through miles of sand dunes, Nature Reserves, salt marshes, cliff tops, pretty flint villages and seaside towns before ending your walk on the expansive sandy beaches of Hopton-on-sea on the Suffolk border on the Saturday.

This is a 6-day walk with 5 nights glamping accommodation.

You will be walking between 13 and 16 miles per day

Our Walking Holidays are based on 2 tents per week due to the amount of time needed to take down and set up your accommodation each day. We can accommodate up to 4 people each week based on 2 people sharing a tent or 3 people sharing one tent (see bespoke options below if you have a larger group).

MarGins Walking and Glamping Holidays


A wonderful, unforgettable experience! We had never been on a walking holiday before so attempting the full Avocet package was a real challenge. From the bespoke booklet packed full of information and helpful tips to all the thought and care that went into the positioning and set up of the tent every day, MarGins made this challenge enjoyable and special. Gin and Mark’s warm and practical approach mean that you feel in safe hands from the moment you drop your bags off. They have forged strong relationships with all the campsite owners along the route which means the MarGins tent gets prime position and you get a mates’ welcome when you arrive exhausted after a day's walking!

The tent is so well stocked with delicious local produce that we managed dinner from it on a couple of nights. A delicious fry up with breathtaking cliff top views as the sun sets - bliss! We ordered their platter one night which was a highlight of the holiday. Fabulous food, beautifully presented. We can't recommend MarGins highly enough and hope to be back soon!

Each Walking Package Includes:

  • Your fully equipped safari tent set up each day of your walking holiday
  • Breakfast hamper full of local produce
  • Bag transfer each day from the start to the finish of your chosen package
  • Detailed information pack written by us providing you with maps, route information, places of interest, places to eat, things to do and much more
  • Our contact details so we are on hand to offer support throughout your whole holiday duration
  • A welcome and introduction from us personally at your first days campsite location

What’s not included:

  • Lunches, evening meal, snacks, drinks
  • Travel insurance
  • Transport to/from your holiday location (or during if using public transport) or car parking costs.  We will provide you with public transport and car parking options depending on which holiday package you choose.
