The countryside and coastline around Deepdale offer wonderful opportunities for walking and cycling.  There are walking routes for long distance hikers and ramblers, for more relaxed walkers or even if you enjoy a bit of Australian tramping.

We can't offer mountains or hard core mountain bike routes, but Norfolk isn't the flat pancake it's often described as, meaning there is something for most walkers & cyclists, especially distance paths and touring cycling.

Deepdale Bike Hire offers supply safe, good quality bikes, trailers and child seats for use by guests staying at Deepdale Backpackers Hostel & Campsite and for visitors to this area of the beautiful North Norfolk coast.

On Deepdale Farm, we have had temporary stewardship walks, but these have now ended.  Instead we have created a temporary circular temporary walk, which will be invitation only.  Please register if you would like to be invited to use this walk.

The Norfolk Coast Path passes the door of Deepdale Farm heading both East and West along the coast, linking Burnham Deepdale to Hunstanton, Wells-next-the-Sea, Blakeney, Sheringham and Cromer.  For more information visit the Peddars Way & Norfolk Coast Path website - www.nationaltrail.co.uk/peddarsway

The CoastHopper bus service runs from Hunstanton to Sheringham, and often to King's Lynn and Cromer too (Every 1/2 hour in the Summer and every hour in the Winter).  It stops at nearly every village along the North Norfolk Coast, so is a superb service for those wishing to walk the Norfolk Coast Path.  In fact you can stay at Deepdale for the whole of your stay and just hop on and off the bus to start or finish your walking wherever you like.  More information can be found on the Coasthopper website - www.coasthopper.co.uk

There are many other fabulous walks in the local area, including a circular walk around Barrow Common and Brancaster.  More information on these walks can be found on the Brancaster Staithe & Burnham Deepdale website - www.burnhamdeepdale.co.uk

The Hull to Harwich National Cycle Route No1 passes a few miles inland, which takes you West to Hunstanton and King's Lynn and East to Wells-next-the-Sea, Fakenham and Norwich.  Route 1 links with Local Route 30, which runs from Wells-next-the-Sea around the northern and eastern coast of Norfolk.  For more information on the National Cycle Routes in the Deepdale area visit: www.sustrans.co.uk

For other access information around Norfolk visit the Norfolk County Council access website - www.countrysideaccess.norfolk.gov.uk

For information on bringing dogs with you when you are visiting, please visit our Paws in Motion page, where we are building a guide to the best dog friendly offerings of the North Norfolk Coast.

We run some organised walks at Deepdale.  For more information on events at Deepdale click here.

The best map for cycling or walking the countryside and coastline around Deepdale is the Ordnance Survey Landranger 132 North West Norfolk map
If you want something more detailed then these two maps are great. Deepdale is on the boarder of both. If you are planning to head right along the coast towards Cromer, you'll need the Ordnance Survey Explorer 250 Norfolk Coast West map
This map is an excellent general map of Norfolk, detailed enough for some walking, definitely for cycling.  Ordnance Survey Travel Map - Tour Norfolk 20 map
To go West you'll need Ordnance Survey Explorer 251 Norfolk Coast Central map
To go East you'll need Ordnance Survey Explorer 251 Norfolk Coast Central map

The countryside and coastline around Deepdale offer wonderful opportunities for walking and cycling.  There are walking routes for long distance hikers and ramblers, for more relaxed walkers or even if you enjoy a bit of Australian tramping.  We can't offer mountains for hard core mountain bikers, but Norfolk isn't the flat pancake it's often described as, meaning there is something for most cyclists, especially distance and touring cycling.

Permissive bridleways mean you can walk, horse ride or cycle, but the routes remain private and those who do not adhere to the rules of the stewardship scheme will not be allowed to use them.
