The Sandmartin

The Sandmartin 

We're delighted with our newest addition to our walking holidays, as it will give you a fantastic flavour of our Norfolk Coastline. Plus, you will only be walking between 9 and 12.5 miles per day giving you plenty of time for long lunches and wildlife watching.

Walk 32 miles of a stunning section of the Norfolk Coast Path commencing in the busy harbour town of Wells-next-the-Sea on either a Thursday or Friday and finishing in the traditional seaside resort of Mundesley on the Saturday or Sunday.

Experience the vast expanse of saltmarshes rich in wildlife, flora and fauna, the vast sandy beaches plus the fascinating Deep History Coast from Weybourne through to Mundesley. It was at West Runton beach where a full mammoth’s skeleton was found!

Not to mention the pretty Norfolk flint villages and seaside towns full of wonderful places to eat, drink and explore.

The Sandmartin is perfect for a weekend adventure, with good public transport links. There is a train station at Cromer and then a good bus service to the start at Wells-next-the-Sea and back to Cromer from Mundesley.

Guest feedback: "Just thought I would drop you a quick note to thank you both so much for our short break walking holiday and our 2 night stay in your beautiful organised tents. We all thoroughly enjoyed our short break on the Norfolk Coast – it is such a scenic part of the country that we had never visited previously. Your accommodation is absolutely fantastic and the home-made and local produce provided for breakfast was delicious. The tent was so well equipped – you have really thought of everything!!! As mentioned earlier, this was our first visit to Norfolk and the coastline there is such a beautiful part of the country – so I’m sure we will have to return to do a bit more exploring in the not to distant future!!!!"

You can choose to do this holiday over 2 or 3 nights:

  • 2 nights - start in Wells-next-the-Sea walking 9 miles to your first nights campsite
  • 3 nights - stay in Wells-next-the-Sea on your first night taking advantage of some time to explore this beautiful town and beach. You will then commence your walk the following morning

Or, why not add a night on to your holiday and stay at the lovely Jonas Farmhouse B&B or The Grove Hotel the night before and/or after your walking holiday, you can leave your car there for the duration of your holiday. The bus stops right outside both establishments to take you to Wells-next-the-Sea to start your walk.
