This year we've seen an increase in solo travellers booking our walking holidays. We're absolutely delighted that our guests feel well informed and most importantly safe and secure knowing that their logistics and accommodation are all taken care of whilst they fully immerse themselves in relaxing and enjoying their unique adventure on the beautiful Norfolk Coast.
Read all about Amanda's experience of her first long distance walking trail on our Curlew Holiday.
Make a cuppa, sit down and immerse yourself in reading all about her beautiful adventure:
Day 1 - Wide Open Skies
"It’s at this point that I should add that I have never done any long distance walking. At all. The beauty of MarGins is that they do all the hard work –minus the walking that is! They set up, take down and move on a fully equipped OZ Tent, along with your luggage. They do all the bookings and provide you with a map and super detailed guide of your route. The tent has everything you could need, as well as things you didn’t think you would.
All you have to do is carry as little as you want and walk the miles.
It was so reassuring to know that at the end of the day there was a tent all set up and a kettle waiting to be boiled at the end of the path. A little fridge filled with local produce provided the next days breakfast ( or breakfast for dinner!)"
Day 2 - Sand and Seashells
"I shuffled out of the campsite with just my backpack on my back. Leaving the tent and my things behind. It was such an odd feeling just up and walking out – I felt like I had forgotten to do something.
But magic was about to happen….
My tent was magically going to transport itself 14 miles down the coast! I just had to walk it – and not get lost doing so"
"I don’t think I can find the words to actually describe the view once you make it up and over the dunes walking onto Holkham beach"
Day 3 - Seals and Shingle
"I love this tent!
I know I have said this before but knowing that everything is all set up and waiting for you puts a real bounce in your step. The whole Curlew Package is so well organised you never have to worry about anything"
"Blakeney to Cley was another beautifully maintained and signposted footpath with something to see in every direction. To the point where you find yourself turning in circles every now and again to take it all in"
Day 4 - Crossing the Finish Line
"It has made me realise just how capable I am. As a bigger girl I have always looked at adventures as being something only that fit people do. I have lost myself in books, devouring tales of other peoples journeys- dreaming I could but never doing so.
This first step has been such confidence booster. I am proud of the fact that I completed it, and mentally it was exactly what I needed. The chance to switch off and zone out – to appreciate nature"
"Massive thank you’s to Gin, Mark and Brylie for making my summer holiday the perfect escape!"
