Cycling in Norfolk
Norfolk is perfect for cycling. The county is blessed with hundreds of miles of quiet country lanes. We can cycle for miles without coming across a car! There is the odd hill but they don’t last for too long. We cycle for fitness and fun – and also enjoy the odd stop along the way. Below are descriptions and links to some of Norfolk’s cycle routes and further down are a few suggestions of places to stop.
Regional Cycle Route 30
The Regional Cycle Route 30 passes the end of the drive to Burrow Cottage. The route joins the National Long Distance route 1 at Wighton (Just inland from Wells Next Sea) and takes quiet lanes to Cromer and then to Mundesley and along the Coast to Great Yarmouth.

A long distance cycle route connecting Dover and the Shetland Islands – via the east coast of England and Scotland. It passes through Norwich to Fakenham and then on to Kings Lynn. Cycling part of this route from Burrow Cottage is possible. Click here for more details.
Situated in the middle of the beautiful village of Heydon just opposite the village green. This cafe has a wonderful selection of homemade cakes and in my opinion does the best toasted teacake money can buy!
