Walking the cliff top path to Happisburgh

A lovely walk to Happisburgh – along the sea wall to Walcott, picking up through the coastline village and then across the cliff top via the newly signed posted Norfolk coastal path – wonderful views of the lighthouse both ways.    Just past Happisburgh is Cart Gap with the great Smallsticks café, or stop off at the pub in Happisburgh, very dog friendly and great beers !

A bonus during our walk back, can’t guarantee this though, a beautiful kingfisher playing with the seabirds on the sea wall at Walcott !!


If you go down to the woods today…….

Spent a lovely morning wandering around Bacton Woods today – we love these woods whatever the season, but Autumn is pretty special.  3 mins in the car from the chalet or easily walkable on the quiet back roads.    A great place to exercise your dogs when they tire of the beach ??!!     It was so peaceful today ….

Searching for the Pigneys in Pigneys Wood

On Sunday we booted up and went in search of the pigneys in Pigneys Wood, a few miles drive from Seascape on the North Walsham Road.   We didn’t find any, but did find a sea of bluebells and gorgeous trees in blossom.


Pigneys is not as large as Bacton Woods, but lovely for a walk on the marked trails to admire the flora and fauna.   Pigneys Wood is owned and managed by North Norfolk Community Woodland Trust.  A great spot for a picnic, with several designated picnic areas. Dogs are allowed, but on leads during the spring/early summer months to safeguard the breeding habitats for nesting ground birds. 


Walking the Quiet Lanes around Seascape

Saturday 26 October – Opportunity for a walk around the “quiet lanes” of Edinthorpe/Paston today.  The Quiet Lane scheme aims to  make minor rural links better for road users , including walkers, cyclists and horse riders.   The idea is to encourage road users to adopt a “share with care” philosophy when using routes signed as Quiet Lanes.    It works !!! and makes for far nicer walking and cycling.    There is quite a network around and about Seascape, perfect for taking the kids out on their bikes with very little cars to worry about.

On the way back picked up essential supplies of “Nick’s Sausages” on sale at the Bacton Superstore.    Nick’s pigs are local Bacton residents, free range and very happy…   Reflected in the quality of the sausages.   Highly recommended for the essential fry up eaten on the deck of Seascape!!!
