Walk on the wild side in North Norfolk

For many of our guests, walking is a highlight of their stay at Wood Farm. The options are endless and even after many years in the area we are still discovering new routes and even new themes!

The Walks page in our Explore Norfolk section of the website we look at a number of good routes, long distance trails  and give links to our favourite paths.

Geology walks

For those with a keen interest in geology a new series of walks with renowned local expert Martin Warren is about to kick off along the coast . Open to anyone over the age of eight 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.

Nature walks

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust host a number of nature themed walks around Cley and Salthouse Marshes throughout the year.

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!

Dog washing booth at Wells Beach

Dog 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.


After a day of walking the North Norfolk coast and countryside, come home to a cosy cottage at Wood Farm. Short breaks and dog-friendly holidays available to book online now. We look forward to welcoming you soon.
