Testimonials

We have established ourselves as the company to come to when you want to walk the beautiful but not arduous Norfolk Trails such as the Norfolk Coast Path and/or Peddars Way, The Wherryman's Way, a group walking break and other short breaks.  Here are a handful of some extracts from the many testimonials we receive.

**************

I just wanted to thank you for a glorious few days on the Coastal Path.

NF, Essex, (solo lady walker)

**************

Just wanted to tell you what a great time we had in Cromer.  The pub was a good choice from you as it was very accessible and we only needed one of our cars on a particular day. 

The printed walking sheets you gave us were ‘well used’! true to the directions printed we managed to get everywhere we wanted to go. Our trip on the steam train was fun and the walk to Weybourne exciting

Thank you again for all the assistance you gave me and the packs that you sent out.

Having returned home from Norfolk yesterday I just wanted to thank you for your excellent organisation of the walk. Everything was absolutely faultless - the accommodation was very good, the bags were always there when we needed them and everyone was very friendly and helpful. We walked well and ate well!!  Even the weather couldn't be faulted, six days of sun, but with a breeze - the storm on Sunday arrived 20 minutes after we checked into the B & B!!

Thank you once again. We are already planning our next long distance footpath - the company we use have a lot to live up to! I shall certainly recommend you, wholeheartedly, to anyone I know wishing to attempt the walk in future.

SP, Herts (two brothers)

It was absolutely epic.

……in those 8 miles we saw hundreds upon hundreds of the grey seals - completely breathtaking and everyone was saying they couldn’t believe how many had arrived for that day so we felt very blessed. 

…..I would definitely do the Coast Path again in a few years 

……. As I say, I can’t thank you enough 

LC and 12 yr old son, Herts (walked the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path to Gt Yarmouth) - I have real admiration for this 12 yr old boy to walk this distance.

Great people and places to stay, beautiful nature and excellent food. Thanks for very good organisation!

We have just returned from our walk along the coast.  We had lovely weather, almost too hot! We loved the individuality of all the B&B owners and they were all so kind and attentive, we were very impressed with them all.  Your instructions were excellent and we definitely used them quite a lot!  Thank you once again for your organisation, you arranged everything perfectly for us.

JB & GW, Bucks  (walking as a couple)

Just to let you know I completed the walk last Thursday as planned. It was a great walk, one that I enjoyed and would recommend to anyone else who might be thinking about it. There were dramatic seas on the Wednesday and Thursday with the north easterly winds coinciding with a high tide stirring up some big waves that made Bacton and Walcott really quite interesting. 

I was a bit apprehensive about using the Coasthopper bus but it is actually a very good service and worked well for my itinerary.

Your local knowledge proved very useful on more than one occasion and I’d like to thank you for making all the arrangements. All in all, a memorable holiday.

ME, Bunwell (Solo male walker walking the whole of the Norfolk Coast)

***************

Just to say thank you for all the trouble you took in making the arrangements for our holiday walking the Norfolk Coast Path. We were fortunate with the weather and really enjoyed the walking.

We also enjoyed the B&B accommodation..... Best pub was the Anchor at Morston....

S&PK, Ipswich (walked as a couple)

***************

We chose you because you specialize in the Norfolk area.   We had walked the West Highland Way last year in Scotland and while it was superior in scenery and varied terrain, the Norfolk coast offered more history and a lot flatter terrain.  The bed and breakfast accommodations offered very enjoyable and personal service, and most of them greeted us with coffee/tea and often homemade cake!  We would definitely recommend you.

J&MB, USA (walked as a couple)

***************

Thank you for a really well organised holiday.  The accommodation was really excellent, as was the walking pack which was extremely clear and detailed.  We had a very enjoyable walk, thank you Suzy.

A&AH, Herts (walked as a couple)

**************

chose Explore Norfolk UK because you are a small company and  had local knowledge.  The pack was excellent, as was all of the accommodation which was very close to the Norfolk Coast Path, and very comfy too!   I had  a great week and would definitely recommend you to others.

S.S  Ipswich (solo lady walker) 

**************

Just wanted to say a huge thank you.  I have just returned home from my Norfolk Walk, having had a brilliant time.  The accommodation was splendid - all very high quality, welcoming and comfortable!

The guidebook and map were great, as were your notes and it was so good just to focus on the walk and the sights and sounds of the coastal path, with no worries about the arrangements!

And even the weather was kind to me!  Thank you again for a great service

K C, York (solo lady walker) 

************

Coming from Australia we sandwiched the Norfolk Coast Path walk between walking in Snowdonia and walking in Iceland and so we hoped for a trouble free visit. From our first contact with Suzy by email and all subsequent communications we felt confident of our walking plans, discussed fully with Suzy, the accommodation and efficient luggage transfer. We received full information about the area, various attractions, transport and suggestions about the places we wished to visit. We were able to give Suzy our requirements and wishes about the area and she tailored our walking week perfectly.

I wanted to book with a company that was local to the area I was intended to walk in.  You were very helpful, and it was clear that your local knowledge helped make the whole experience run smoothly.  I would definitely recommend you.  Many thanks once again for my memorable visit to Norfolk.

D B, Shrewsbury (solo lady walker) 

********

You were very friendly and had an encouraging response to our phone query which is what attracted us to using you.  All the accommodation was very good and the walking pack you provided us with, including the detailed itinerary, was excellent.  It was a really lovely holiday and everything went splendidly - thank you very much.

M M, London (friends walking plus dog) 

**************

The walking pack was excellent and the itinerary notes were very clear.  It was an excellent week for a mixed group of walkers.  Easy to follow, easy underfoot and full of interest.  Explore Norfolk UK handled everything smoothly and helped to create a memorable holiday.  

G H, London (walked as  a group)

I really appreciate your "personal" outreach. (My spouse works for a small adventure travel company and I can always tell when I'm a person to a company or just another booking number).

We've decided not to do the Norfolk Coast Path this year, due to some scheduling problems with work that came up when we tried to clear those dates. It's a great desire of mine to visit this part of England and see the marshes, though, so we'll definitely be doing this in the near future. Thank you again for your kind assistance!

Ellen, USA (March 2016)

"I just wanted to write and say a huge thank you for organising our walking holiday.  We chose you specifically because you had the right mileage for us to walk every day, and you tailored it for what we wanted.  We also loved stopping off at Castle Acre and wish we could have spent longer there!

You were very prompt in all your correspondence.   The actual itinerary you wrote up for us was first class and we had no problems finding the accommodation or finding out where we could buy lunch etc.  It had so much detail in it, it was a comfort to know we had it on us at all times of the walk.   I have to say it was also a great comfort to know that you live in Norfolk and that we could phone you at any time should there have been an emergency and you would have been able to come over and sort the problem out, had we had one (fortunately we didn't!!)   

We would definitely have no qualms about recommending you to others.  You managed to show us how delightful Norfolk is, thank you once again."
