Enjoy a long cycle or walk through this large National Trust owned park and estate in Norfolk. The parkland surrounds the 19th century Sheringham Hall and includes miles of peaceful woodland trails, beautiful landscaped gardens full of rhododendrons and azaleas and fabulous views of the Norfolk coast. There is also an abundance of wildlife with 3 species of deer and a wide variety of birds and butterflies.
There are 4 lovely way-marked trails in the park. They are colour coded with orange, blue, red and white waymarkers. Cycling is permitted in the park but please do not cycle on the orange trail and keep to reasonable speeds.
Sheringham Park is located about 5 miles west of Cromer and about 6 miles east of Holt. It is just a short walk from the coast where you could pick up the Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path which runs through Sheringham. You can head east to Cromer along the coast on the Cromer to Sheringham Walk. The route also gives you the option of climbing to Beacon Hill, Norfolk's highest point. It's located just over 2 miles east of Sheringham Park and has more nice woodland trails and sea views.
Just to the west of the path you will find Kelling Heath. The expansive area of heathland includes miles of footpaths, heather, western gorse, bracken, and mixed woodland. It's a short walk from the park or you can catch the North Norfolk Railway (NNR) to Kelling Heath Park railway station from Holt or Sheringham.

Further Information and Other Local Ideas
One nice idea is to hop on the North Norfolk Railway, a splendid heritage steam railway with a station at Sheringham. Also known as the Poppy line, the old steam trains will take you along the beautiful coast to the Georgian town of Holt where you can explore Holt Country Park.
Just to the east you can pick up the West Runton and Beeston Bump Circular Walk. This will take you up to the highest point in Norfolk and an ancient Roman Camp.
To the west there's a ruined priory and Grade II listed windmill to visit in Weybourne. Here you can also pick up the Salthouse Circular Walk and enjoy a climb to Kelling Heath where there are some fine trails and excellent views over the area.
