Cycling, walking, golf. Even surfing. Your sport of choice can be found here in Norfolk.
For those who like to spend their leisure time on two wheels, we’ve created a number of cycling routes through our wonderful woodland. Pop into reception for a map!
While Visit North Norfolk has also created this great guide to local cycling routes, the perfect way to explore Norfolk from your bicycle seat.
And don’t worry if you didn’t bring your bikes with you. Sea Palling Cycle Hire will deliver rental cycles to Forest Park and pick them up at the end of your stay.
Swing your clubs in the fresh sea air and play 18 holes at nearby Royal Cromer Golf Club.
Set between Cromer and Overstrand, it’s widely recognised as one of the best courses in the country, providing a very warm welcome to visitors and members alike. The course, at 320 feet above sea level and overlooking the Cromer coastline, is maintained to the highest standards year-round, challenging all abilities.
While Sheringham Golf Club, set on the cliffs in an area of outstanding beauty, has hosted three English Ladies Championships. Located between the preserved North Norfolk Railway and the coast, the course is noted for its long par 4 holes.
If Wimbledon is more your thing, pack your racquet and visit Cromer Tennis Club for a friendly game, set and match. Open 7 days a week, guest members are always welcome. Booking advisable during the summer season.
Giving the Cornish coast a run for its money, our deep swells and waves, particularly at Cromer and East Runton, make North Norfolk a new mecca for surfers. And Forest Park is the ideal base to bring along your board for a surfing holiday.
If you fancy giving surfing a go for the first time, the Glide Surf, Cromer’s very own surf school, should be your first port of call.
Open 7 days a week, Easter to October, lessons are available for private or group bookings, for all levels and ages. Equipment including wetsuits and boards also available to hire.

Meet any one of our local fisherman in town, and they’ll point you towards a fantastic little fishing spot. The Norfolk coast is jumping with bass in the summer months, while Mundesley can yield large cod, dabs and flounders in winter. Nearby Overstrand is another fishing favourite for a great winter catch, with sole and plaice in abundance.
You can even take to the high seas to really test your sea legs. Day-long offshore fishing trips, hosted by an experienced skipper, are available with Norfolk Fishing Trips.
There’s the opportunity to test your skills at endless other sports – horse riding, sailing, swimming and bowls.
