The Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path starts in Suffolk at Knettishall Heath Country Park and follows the route of a Roman road to Holme-next-the-Sea on the north Norfolk coast. At Holme the Peddars Way meets the Norfolk Coast Path as it runs from Hunstanton to Cromer.
Roman road, unique Brecks, rolling open farmland, low cliffs, extensive sandy beaches, dunes and fabulous salt marshes.
This route has it all.
Fantastic scenery and landscape cover the 150 km (93 miles) of the two trails of the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path. The majority of the Trails run through the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the Brecks, a unique area of forest, heath and low river valleys. Find out more specific information about the countryside through which you will pass here.
The gentle terrain of the Trail makes it particularly suitable for people with special access needs. There are several lengths where you can gain equal access and enjoy the countryside. Braille, large print, audio and DAISY guides are now available through the UK library system. Quote ISBN 1-904823-24-6. We are also developing webpages in conjunction with disability groups to provide even more information about the route.
Much of the Peddars Way is open to cyclists. The Norfolk Coast Path is not. For a map of where you cannot cycle click here.
There is a special route available to horse riders of the Peddars Way. For those looking to make a longer journey there is also an accommodation guide available.
