    Route and Accommodation Guide




93 miles/149 km from Knettishall Heath near Thetford to Cromer. The Way is in two parts -  The Peddars Way runs northwards through the Norfolk countryside to near Hunstanton and The coast path section then runs eastwards via Sheringham. Connections with the Weavers Way and Angles Way allow a long circuit of Norfolk to be completed.


Easy walking through the Brecks Environmentally Sensitive Area and along the coast in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is an enjoyable mix of country lanes, footpaths and tracks through a varied landscape of open heath and meres, woodland, rich farmland divided by flower-filled hedgerows and pretty flint and carrstone villages. The coastline is famous for its remoteness and wild beauty. It is a wonderfully diverse landscape of sweeping sandy beaches, grass tufted dunes, saltings, reed beds, creeks, tidal inlets and unspoilt villages.
