For many of our guests, walking is a highlight of their stay at Wood Farm. In our ‘Explore’ section of the website we look at a number of good routes, long distance trails and give links to our favourite paths. But the options are endless and even after many years in the area we are still discovering new routes and even new themes!
For those with a keen interest in geology a new series of walks is about to kick off along the coast with renowned local expert Martin Warren. Open to anyone over the age of 8 with a sensible degree of fitness, the walks offer a fascinating insight into the rich geological history of this amazing coastline. They start on September 16th, and most are based around West Runton, the site of a famous fossil find – the West Runton elephant.
Other guided walks can be planned and booked in advance through Walk Norfolk who will tailor a walk to suit your interests.
For those with an interest in birds, plants, butterflies or fungus, to name just a few, the Cley Bird Club offers walks to non -members throughout the year. And as the birds start migrations in early Autumn this is a great time to get some expert input! The Norfolk Wildlife Trust also hosts a number of nature themed walks.
If you have a dog with you, Norfolk of course abounds with great places to walk, and in the winter months almost all beaches are open to dogs ( though check the signs at popular beaches before walking just to be sure). At Wells, the Beach Car Park Cafe is a canine heaven with a water ‘bar’ and dog washing booth outside and dog treats available inside too! The Beach Café was voted the winner of the best Café/Restaurant category in the nationwide competition run by the Kennel Club’s Be Dog Friendly Awards 2014. So enjoy your coffee and treat the dog after a bracing walk on beautiful Wells beach.
