Combining one of the most beautiful coasts in England with the luxury of glamping, Walk and Glamp offer the ideal mix of exercise and comfort. The Norfolk Coast is the perfect go-to place for walking holidays, spending time with loved ones, watching wildlife and getting that much needed “me time”. Just you, fresh air, big skies and the vast expanses of sandy beaches that are very often unoccupied by anyone else.
Here a guest has the opportunity to totally immerse themselves in walking the famous Norfolk Coast Path National Trail through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. While you’re breathing in the rich sea air and enjoying the remarkable peace that this area is famous for, the MarGins team are erecting the safari style tents along the way and transferring your luggage. This is a place where the stresses of city life can be left in the sea. It is also child and pet friendly so bring the whole family.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Fully equipped safari style tents with an added touch of luxury plus a breakfast hamper of delicious Norfolk produce is provided each day by owners Gin and Mark. The campsites are situated close to the path and each day the tent and luggage are moved to the next site to meet you after your day’s walk.
The Norfolk Coast Path covers 84 miles of the Norfolk Coastline starting from Hunstanton and finishing in Hopton-on-Sea. Gin and Mark can recommend walking packages and are happy to tailor one to meet your unique requirements if needed. This is no trouble for them, the pair have thoroughly explored and re-explored each one several times and know them all intimately.
Along the way there are coastal towns to visit for food and refreshment, each one having its own unique feel and pace. Gin also provides an Information Pack including things to do, places to eat and the locations of toilet facilities.
Considered as one of the gentler National Trails, the Norfolk Coast Path is classified as “moderate”, perfect for anyone new to long distance walking, or if you’re doing it with your family and have little ones or older legs to consider.
After an invigorating walk the guests can enjoy the full Glamping set up of safari tents, sumptuous beds and your own private kitchen area. There is a capacity of 4 tents and each can sleep 2 people or can be extended to accommodate 3-4 people if necessary.
With a generally flat terrain with gentle gradients, the route provides wonderful scenery from salt marshes, cliffs and dunes, spectacular beaches, mesmerising sea views and the famous big skies of Norfolk.
Some of the highlights include Holkham beach from Burnham Overy Staithe, Thornham Harbour at sunrise and sunset, the endless Stiffkey beach at low tide, the seals at Horsey beach and the sand dunes at Winterton-on-Sea.
THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
With many opportunities to rest and recuperate this is still a Walking Holiday and a mobile Glamp Site, make sure you bring appropriate shoes!
Depending on the season, bringing a jacket is an idea.
