Car park off Lynn and Grimston road. Circular walk for a couple of hours. Well marked route, although we had found the walk online and had downloaded the directions. Varied countryside on the walk.

Excellent views from the higher path to the south of the common, across undulating countryside. Dogs welcome (on leads due to the wildlife). Marked paths and trails across the heather-clad heathland (not common in Norfolk). Car parking in two small car parks off the Lynn...More

This is a great place to walk, the vIews change throughout the year so always interesting. Always see lots of wildlife and also snakes and lizards on occasions so interesting for kids. A quiet place and feels more remote than it is. Easy circular walk...More

This is a fantastic place to walk, with or without your dog, The open views are lovely, and during our walk we saw cows and ponies grazing. In fine weather it is a fantastic place to stroll

Unpretentious site has some nice paths, please keep dogs on lead inside the reserve. Plenty of bird life, although it is funny to watch the stream of twitchers chasing sightings of birds from one site to the next..
