This page is to provide links to comprehensive guides to local walks and some good ones a bit further afield.
If you are staying at any of the cottages then they can be printed off before your holiday. All of the cottages have some walk leaflets and books as well as the necessary maps but this is a starting selection.
(You will need Adobe reader installed to view some of these)
East Ruston - Weavers Way - Stalham - East Ruston

A lovely walk of 5 miles round some very nice villages and countryside. This walk has the advantage of finishing just down the road from the Suffield Arms! Milestone Barn is the nearest of the cottages to this walk and Rooster Barn is close by too.
A lovely 6.2 miler round the village of Trunch in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Crown at Trunch would be a good place for a post walk pint!
The closest of the properties are Rooster Barn and Milestone Barn.

A 5 mile walk in a lovely area, along the waterside and including the How Hill reserve. Very typical of the Broads area.
