Cycling holidays in Norfolk
Broaden your horizons in Norfolk. Discover pretty flint cottages and pine forests by the sea along Nelson’s North Norfolk Coast or enjoy a right royal time at Sandringham. There’s the haunting Sea Henge at King’s Lynn and tales of Boudicca around the heathy Brecklands, plus 125 miles of waterways and countless charming villages in the Norfolk Broads National Park. And don’t miss Norwich which once had a church for every Sunday and a pub for every day of the year!
Our self-guided cycling holidays and cycling short breaks in Norfolk, one of the most beautiful areas of the UK, feature both linear and circular routes and include hotel to hotel bike tours.
Experience Norfolk’s beautiful Brecklands and the stunning North Norfolk coast with a real splash of style. There are grand Palladian mansions to mooch over, Georgian market towns to go grazing in, tiny historic hamlets and places of pilgrimage, huge sandy stretches and the quaintest of quaysides. To complement all this and the pleasures of country lane cycling at its best, we’ve selected two superb and truly original hotels with real pamper potential. Relax within the walled garden and mix of Georgian and modern luxury in central Swaffham, and unwind as you sample some of the warmest hospitality on offer in The Burnhams perhaps enjoying the award-winning restaurant and spa. It’s a great little voyage of Norfolk discovery. Nelson would be proud. Fancy putting your toe in the water?
In Swaffham and Burnham Market (2 nights).
Encounter amazing, unexpected gems of civilisation amidst the wildest woods, heaths and winding creeks of Norfolk’s big sky landscapes. Historic Walsingham has attracted generations of pilgrims; today’s Norfolk visitors have more of a habit of heading to the stylish ‘Burhams’, aka ‘Chelsea-on-Sea’. Country houses fit for a queen, castles and priories, Palladian edifices and great market towns – cycle to see them all though peaceful country lanes with a charming surprise around almost every corner.
Near Watton, Swaffham and the Fakenham area (2 nights).
This is a tour that explores the many facets of Norfolk, from the history and grandeur of Oxburgh Hall, to the quaint medieval town of Castle Acre, the ancient ports on the North Norfolk coast, and the lovely Sandringham Estate, the Norfolk retreat of H.M. The Queen.
Near Watton, Swaffham and Great Bircham (2 nights).
Take in some of East Anglia’s finest Great Houses, greatest sandy beaches and countless great villages dwarfed only by history, all under one great big Norfolk sky. There are Palladian mansions to pop in or pedal past and royal connections at Sandringham and Oxborough too. Great Walsingham warrants a pilgrimage beyond the beach and historic quayside of Wells; Great Massingham boasts abbey fishponds and Great Bircham a towering mill. Coast through gloriously green estates, discover stylish market towns and follow history down the Peddars Way Path. With woodland, heathland and rolling landscapes all the way, this tour is a clear contender for some truly great cycling!
