Further Details:

The Norfolk Wildlife Trust's reserve at Holme Dunes is one of the north Norfolk coasts most attractive landscapes and the combination of mudflats, sand dunes, saltmarsh and reedbeds have an air of mysticism. It is an important birdwatching site where you can look for a huge variety of species including avocets, ringed plovers, redshanks, curlews and lapwings. Holme Dunes is another key site for winter wildfowl.

The coastline of Norfolk, much of it an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offers endless opportunities for people who like to get around using their own two feet.

Walking provides the perfect opportunity to view the Norfolk Coast from a different angle - getting closer to nature and escaping into a truly peaceful environment. It is also one of the best ways to view some of the local wildlife and outstanding flora and fauna that Norfolk has to offer.

Whether you prefer a gentle stroll around pretty villages and on coastal paths and beautiful beaches or are looking for a more challenging route, you will find no shortage of places to walk.

North Norfolk is famous for its long, white sandy beaches such as those at Holkham, Wells and Brancaster - the setting for pop videos, movies and lots of happy family days out. The wide beaches are washed by safe shallow waters and are perfect for sunbathers, swimmers and those looking for plenty of space to play.

The beach at Holme next-the-Sea provides a beautiful area for walking and forms part of the Norfolk Coast Path. The path forms part of Peddars Way Walk and leads to Hunstanton in one direction and Thornham in the other.
