During the colder winter months, it’s a quieter time of year for walkers in North Norfolk, but it provides a completely different outlook on the countryside with immense empty beaches, frosty paths and winter wildlife.
Everyone loves a summer walk, but there’s something magical about getting wrapped up and seeing your breath whilst taking in the stunning surroundings that North Norfolk has to offer. Here are our top three winter walks:
Sheringham to Cromer
This coastal walk starts at Sheringham, taking you over Beeston Bump, then continuing onto the West Runton cliff path followed by East Runton, before arriving at the destination of the seafront at Cromer. Expect to see grassy clifftop trails and breath-taking views.
Wells to Holkham
Another coastal path walk; this trail takes you along Wells beach which is dotted with colourful beach huts, until you reach the sandy scenes at Holkham, before walking back along the Norfolk coast path. The Wells to Holkham route is mostly through the luscious greenery of the North Norfolk forests.
Through the winter months, this coastal walk creates a dramatic coastline with wonderful views. One of the most exciting highlights of this walk is the opportunity to take a boat trip to see the seal pups that gather on Blakeney Point (boats leave from nearby Morston see Temples Seal trips).
