A nature trail identified by squirrel way markers will take you around this area. There are truly splendid views over the countryside and out to sea, but bench seating is scarce.

The Heath is extensive and is a great place for a picnic, especially if you find the spot just above Salthouses.

Pick a point where you can see the steam trains pass by to impress the kids (and the young at heart).

The North Norfolk Railway crosses through this area, and there is a small platform in the middle of the park, so you can skip into the middle of the reserve and walk back. The steam trains connect to Holt, Sheringham and Weybourne. All three station have a cafe.

The footpaths that cross Kelling Heath join up to the paths from Sheringham Park, and the Old Weybourne train station. They even link up to a lovely footpath that drops down to the Tank Museum at Weybourne, and Cafe / Art Gallery at Kelling.

Adjoining the common land is a caravan / touring park, this has a cafe and a shop, so you can plan a really long walk and stop for tea and buns.
