The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Mountain Warehouse Cromer

49 Church St, Cromer NR27 9HH, UK – 01263 519006

Excellent value for money more so when one of there sales is on. Pop in have a look you won't be disappointed lovely helpful staff.

Good selection of clothing and equipment at pretty good prices. As the stock is their own brand it can be hard to directly compare to competitors but the prices seemed very fair and the quality of the clothing was very good. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was lots of choice.

The Kit Bag

High St, East Runton, Cromer NR27 9NX, UK – 01263 513934

Such a shame this little jem of a place is closing down

Great shop full of outdoor clothing for all and other outdoor accessories. No parking for the shop, but parking on the other side of the road is possible. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Well worth a visit.

Wet Dog Surf Shop Cromer

7 Tucker St, Cromer NR27 9HA, UK – 01263 519703

Great shop, always a friendly welcome and sound advice.

Great shop, good range of surf and skate accessories and clothing plus a very helpful owner.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Manor Farm Caravan and Camping Site

Manor Farm, East Runton, Cromer NR27 9PR, UK – 01263 512858

Manor Farm is located on the hill above Cromer town centre overlooking the sea, it's ideal for groups, kids and also allows dogs on a certain field. The facilities are just what you need, somewhere to get a nice good hot shower in the morning and somewhere to wash your pots and always kept well maintained. Pitches are either electric or non electric. Camper vans, motor homes and caravans are welcome. Non electric pitches allow you set up your group how you like with no boundaries as long as respect access for vechiles and not being stupid and hogging setting up space for other.

Beautifully situated caravan and camping site. Lovely atmosphere, really clean shower and toilet blocks, good laundry facilities. One reason for only four stars, the accesss and I'm not talking about the narrow lanes leading to the farm, but the tracks to get to each field would be my only gripe. I'm sure the owners could do something about the surface and the potholes. Apart from this a lovely site.

Seacroft Caravan and Motorhome Club Site

Cromer Rd, East Runton, Cromer NR27 9NH, UK – 01263 514938

Some of the pitches r on the small size. Advisable to book well in advance. There r only 6 shower cubicles in both ladies and gents shower blocks. Not all visitors have their own shower facilities so try and stagger times of use. New all service area really brilliant so we r well pleased.

Late book in time (1.0pm) but very helpful wardens and allowed to wait with no hassle. Nice site with added bonus of club house/restaurant and swimming pool although food fairly pricey. Good shower block and adequate dog walk. Recommended

Reynolds W & Sons Ltd

1 High St, Overstrand, Cromer NR27 0AB, UK – 01263 579239

Ivy farm, see my comments in the Overstrand post
