A dramatic cliff face on Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path

Easter on the Norfolk Coast Path

27th April 2015

Easter 2015

With the change in the weather the family and I decided to head to the North Norfolk Coast for a couple of days rest and relaxation.

After decamping dropping off all the kit at the cottage we headed to the North Creake Abbey for a quick spot of lunch before we went out on the national trail at Burnham Deepdale From there we walked through to Burnham Overy Staithe. The weather was fantastic and the opportunity to walk a stretch of the coast path which feels quite different from other stretches was quite refreshing. The walk took us over the repaired flood banks and on the repaired footpath which was looking really, really good and was attracting a number of fellow walkers. The feeling of being away from it all was really beneficial for all of us as the stress of life was left behind us.

Once at Burnham Overy Staithe we caught the Coasthopper bus back to Deepdale café for a cup of hot chocolate to replenish the kids and myself before returning to the cottage.

The next day we completed a treasure trail at old Hunstanton and had a chance to walk short sections of the trail whilst learning about local history and environment was a really good way of getting the kids out for a walk. I used to work in Hunstanton quite some time ago and seeing how much the area had changed was surprising, the old local fishing cottages being updated and converted but keeping the local character was heartening.

The following day we found ourselves back in Hunstanton again – this time in the town and we had the opportunity to complete another treasure trail which took us past the old railway infrastructure which you can find if you look hard enough.

Before we went home the following day the family walked from Blakeney to Cley which was a glorious walk enjoyed not just by us but by a number of visitors to the area looking at the route.

A great weekend on the coast…

Why not try one of the walks next time you are in the area?
