As the temperature drops, it’s the ideal time to wrap up warm and explore the UK on a bracing autumn walk. A team of experts have found some of the best.
The travel expert team at Holidaycottages.co.uk have uncovered some of the UK’s most breathtaking autumn walks.
One of the prettiest walks for the autumn season is in Norfolk at Blakeney Freshes, in the atmospheric town of Blakeney. The walk is rated easy and suitable for a range of abilities and it covers around three miles of the Norfolk Coast Path.
A spokesperson said: “Set on the stunning Norfolk Coast Path, this is an easy three-mile walk with amazing views across the sea, marshes and Blakeney National Nature Reserve.

“Bird lovers should take a stroll here and keep an eye out for the vast wildlife that resides within it.
“On a cold autumn morning, you’ll catch the mist rising and may even be able to spot golden plovers!”
Blakeney is also famed for its seal population and from November tourists may be able to catch a glimpse of baby grey seals.
Blakeney Point is home to England’s largest grey seal population and over 4,000 pups are born there each winter.

Blakeney Village sits within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has several cute pubs to shelter in if the weather is bad.
It’s famous for crabs and children can have a go at crabbing from the village quay but remember to return the crabs to the water.
Although the Blakeney Point walk isn’t that far, much of the walk is on soft shingle which can be tricky to walk on. The walk is generally easier at low tide.
Tourists should stick to the paths and obey all signs as disturbing the breeding wildlife can be a prosecutable offence.
