Ever wondered which Norfolk beach is best? Or which one you should visit.

You now have the chance to acquire the kindle version or the paperback version of the Norfolk Beaches Handbook, the all year round handbook for the best 28 beaches in Norfolk. With so many beaches to choose from, this book makes your choice much easier.  You can find out much more about the Norfolk Beaches Handbook by clicking this link.

Norfolk Beaches Handbook


Dog Walks Around The Norfolk Coast contains 16 circular walks which all vary in length, but all have one thing in common; very little time is needed on the lead!

Many walks that I discovered whilst writing this book required too much road walking with the dogs, so these walks are all walks which are excellent for letting your dogs have freedom to enjoy themselves as much as possible.  The walks stretch from Snettisham on the west coast to Caister on the east.

Available in paperback and kindle version, you can read more about the book here.
