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.

The Norfolk Coast Path then runs along a coastline famed for its remoteness and wild beauty. 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.

Customer reviews from the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path

“An interesting and enjoyable trip to a part of the country that had hitherto been unknown to us. Good walking, good accommodation and as indicated above a varied and interesting landscape.”
Mr Gill, UK
“Wonderful tour through very variable coast landscape.”
Mr Eckardstein, Switzerland
“We like the walk very much. There were so many different things to see - architectural styles, flint or stones, changing landscapes from very quiet old roman road to bustling seasides and different kinds of flowers and birds.”
Mr Stoecker, Germany
“The walking was excellent and it really was a lovely part of the world. We are both keen bird watchers and the opportunities afforded by the reserves was excellent. We would certainly visit this part of the world again and certainly use Contours again. The organisation was perfect. Everything ran smoothly from start to finish. Luggage transfers and taxi links were spot on.”
Mrs Fuller, UK
“Excellent walking, very varied scenery, great B&BS and plenty of refreshment places en route.”
Mr Watts, UK
“Very pleasant and easy walking. The first half of the walk through interesting villages and fenland.”
Mr Watson, UK
“We really appreciated the effort put in by yourselves to accommodation our tailored walking holiday. It was the best marked route we have ever followed. Trail was well maintained. The trail went from woody to beach. I loved when we hit the Norfolk coastal paths and walked along with the sea by our side.”
Ms Wilson, UK
“The countryside is wonderful, the straight flat roman roads were a refreshing change from the previously hilly areas.”
Ms Tasnady, UK
“To the team at Contours Walking Holidays, Thank you very much for your booking service. I enjoyed my walking tour of the Norfolk Coast Path very much. The sun was shining, everyone looked happy! I felt happy too!”
Ms Balga, Germany
