About the trail

The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path National Trail combines two contrasting paths. The Peddars Way follows the line of a Roman road through pleasant countryside. It enjoys a mix of country lanes, footpaths and tracks through a varied landscape of open heath, woodland, rich farmland and pretty villages.

As the trail reaches the coast, the Norfolk Coast Path takes over, leading the way along a shoreline famed for its remoteness and wild beauty. Part of the England Coast Path, the walk passes through a diverse landscape of sandy beaches, reed beds, tidal inlets and unspoilt villages. Magnificent stately homes, medieval castles and the seal colonies at Blakeney Point all add to the charm of this scenic trail.

We offer multiple holiday options along this trail. If you wish to experience the entire trail, simply select the first option from the list below.

Your Itinerary

This itinerary lists our preferred overnight stops for this tour. Sometimes there may be a shortage of available accommodation in a preferred location, in which case we will transfer you from the trail to your accommodation and back again at no extra charge. Overnight stops marked with a (T) will always require transfers as standard.

Overnight stops marked with an (L) have very limited accommodation, and therefore more often than not will also require a transfer, particularly on bank holidays and weekends. We will use non-transfer accommodation wherever possible.

The daily mileages quoted are average trail miles only and do not include the distance from the trail to your accommodation. We do not expect you to have to travel more than a mile from the trail to your accommodation in most cases; should your accommodation be further than this, transfers will be provided as standard if practical. A very limited number of stops will require you to travel on foot up to two miles off the trail, however these instances will be clearly communicated to you if applicable.

Further transfers may also be required due to some accommodations having a two-night minimum booking policy, especially at weekends.

Below are the additional costs that may apply depending on your requirements. Dog-friendly tours are subject to a Daily Dog Charge, which will be listed below if applicable. Our standard prices per person are based upon two people sharing a room; if you are on your own, or are part of a group but require a room of your own, then the Solo Traveller or Single Supplements apply respectively:
