Walking in Norfolk

Around the Cottage

Go through this gate from the Burrow Cottage parking area and you are straight on to a public footpath.  From here you can walk to the coast, explore the local woods or walk to the pub!

The Boardwalk

Right on our doorstep is the Southrepps Common Nature Reserve.  It comprises of 12.4 hectares of woodland, reeds, sedges, grass and rare wild flowers, spreading over five sites in Lower Southrepps village. About half the reserve is a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’ and a ‘Special Area of Conservation’, providing home to an exceptionally wide range of habitats and species.  There is an 800m ‘Board Walk’ to explore the area and keep your feet dry all year round!  Click here for more information and here for more pictures.

Southrepps Circular Walk

The Southrepps Circular walk is a gentle 3.5 mile stroll around the area.  It passes along the footpath by the cottage and only a small deviation will take you to the Vernon Arms for refreshment.  Click here for a map.

Coastal Walks

There are plenty of coastal walks to choose from.  This picture was taken near Overstrand on the Coastal path (Paston Way) towards Trimmingham.  Here are some more details of where to go.
