About West Runton and Beeston Regis Heath
This is the perfect place for a breezy walk along, or up and down, the hills of north Norfolk.
Enjoy the sun on the heaths or shelter from the wind in the woods.
In a stroll of a couple of miles you can see eight species of trees and depending on the season, a variety of flowers, birds, bees and butterflies.
Enjoy the views over the coastal villages and Sheringham; they are different every day.
Look for the signs of a Napoleonic signal station, near to the car park.
Or just relax and have a picnic!
Walk in our woods and see silver birches, rowan (mountain ash), oak, ash and sweet chestnut. There are also old beech trees that were planted when the land was part of the Felbrigg estate.
Our heathland is the most valuable part of this property. Scrub has been cut and cleared and humus has been scraped off to help regenerate the heather.
Our heaths are home to the white admiral, the rare barred chestnut moth, hummingbird hawkmoth and the silver-washed fritillary butterfly. Most years we also host nightjars, lizards, grass snakes and adders.
