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 to find and follow.

Coming from Knights Hill the entrance on the right hand side about is about 1 mile from the roundabout, but easy to miss as there is no signpost. My advice is go by car, we walked along the narrowish road, with no footpaths, meeting traffic going at 60 mph! The car park (compacted sandy soil) is uneven with many potholes... More

There are not that many areas like this in Norfolk. Kelling Heath is one but I struggle to think of others. Almost like Scotland, a raised area (Noel Coward was mistaken) with great views and covered with heather. To find it, take the King's Lynn bypass (A149), drive up to Knight's Hill roundabout and take the exit to Hillington (3rd... 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..

Fresh air lovely views and, When we go there are always lots of dogs, this is not a complaint at all we love to see them, and the type of people who walk their dogs regularly train them really well and the dogs love it to, if your dog is not trained and it decides to go off be warned... More

We had been assured this was very clearly signposted - but this is not the case at all. To access, head East on A148 from roundabout and take your first right - the common is on your right and there is a sandy, unmade track on your right on which to park. No sign-posts for it though! We only had... More

A great place to see some great wildlife . Winter raptor roost viewing at its very best . Get in good place to scan the heath just before dusk and wait for the owls and harriers to arrive . on a negative point the car park is dreadful and needs sorting ASAP , Very large pot holes .

A lovely area for a walk. Semi wild ponies roam around and munch on the grasses and plants. Car park is full of holes which fill with water, so careful driving in.
