United Kingdom: Norfolk

Highlights of Norfolk Cycling

  • Discover the nature of North Norfolk - visit RSPB Snettisham and the seals at Blakeney
  • Cycle between traditional villages through rolling open farmland
  • Explore the Sandringham Estate, the country retreat of Her Majesty the Queen
  • Visit the Palladian Mansions of Holkham Hall and Hougton Hall
  • Based on our popular 7 night, Contrasts of Norfolk Cycling

This 5-night holiday in North Norfolk offers an introduction to this charming region full of natural highlights and historical sites.

You start and finish your holiday just outside Kings Lynn and will ride through low-lying landscapes through traditional villages and along quiet country lanes. After riding along the tree-lined avenues of the Sandringham Estate keen birdwatchers can visit RSPB Snettisham which attracts waders, ducks and geese. The high tide creates a great wildlife spectacle, as thousands of birds are forced off the vast mudflats of The Wash onto the reserve's lagoons. Visit Houghton Hall, once home to Sir Robert Walpole before arriving at your next overnight stop. Head to the Norfolk Coast AONB with its endless beaches backed by dunes and spend the next two nights in the Georgian market town of Holt, from where you can explore more of the coast with visits to Sheringham or Cromer or head to the Norfolk Broads. Accommodation is in a range of 3 and 4 star hotels, with on-site restaurants or a choice of places to eat locally.

Reviews

Everyone who goes on a Headwater holiday will be emailed a link to our post-holiday questionnaire where they can give us an honest assessment of all aspects of their holiday - everything from how quickly we answer the phone to how clean the hotels were - plus an overall rating and comments about their holiday.

Any feedback collected is posted to our website, so that people can make an informed decision based on past experiences before heading off on holiday. We don’t edit the reviews, the only thing we do is proofread them and alter any typos, where necessary, to ensure they are easy to read for everyone. All reviews will be published (except in certain extreme circumstances), and a member of the Headwater team will respond to any constructive criticisms/comments under the reviews, at their discretion. So, for the real tales, twists and turns of our holidays, look no further than the reviews from our previous travellers.


Mrs DUNCAN, 11/10/2021

Cycling in north Norfolk was a great way to see the area in a bit more detail and offered a good variety of countryside, seaside, country house estates etc to ride through and allowed time to look around if we wanted to. It was great to have the app to tell us our route without having to constantly check a map. The hotels were all very comfortable. Very enjoyable. A few bike issues which was a bit unfortunate but we still had a good time.


Mr BLACK, 08/10/2021

A lovely way to see a lovely and interesting part of the country. Our weather was mixed, but that did not prove to be a problem, with a comfy and welcoming hotel waiting at the end of each day. Universally, we were given a warm welcome, and the navigation app was a boon : we didn't get lost at all.


Mr DAVIES, 29/09/2021

The cycling was a little harder than we had expected, it is rated 1+ but could perhaps have been a 2. One bike that was originally supplied was really in need of a service and was not very good. Having said that once I mentioned this it was changed the next day and the replacement was fine. The shower in the hotel at Holt was very weak but we were told that the water pressure in the area is very low. The last day of cycling is quite tiring though there are quite a few potential stopping places. Overall this was a very good holiday. We used to cycle daily to work but having retired and so cycling less we found this a little more of a challenge.


Mr WOOD, 25/08/2021

An enjoyable holiday in a part of the country we have never previously visited.


Mr BETTS, 04/08/2021

Great experience from booking to departure! Pity about the weather - we got drenched on the first day!


Mr ABRAMS, 02/07/2021

A wonderful way to see the beautiful Norfolk countryside.
