Angles Way Accommodation and Other Services
RambleFest displays details of Angles Way accommodation, camping, where to eat and drink, guidebooks and maps, and public transport. We also include an Ordnance Survey map link for each location along the route for which we have service details.

By clicking on any location, a new page opens, revealing the services for that particular location.
The Angles Way is a 77 mile long-distance footpath following – approximately – the Norfolk/Suffolk border between Great Yarmouth and Knettishall Heath. It is mostly a gentle walk, and there is plenty of Angles Way accommodation and other services. There is also plenty of services further afield for those wishing to explore the area around the Angles Way.
The RambleFest Angles Way accommodation (etc.) pages are intended for anyone who loves the countryside and wishes to find accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants, camping shops and public transport on or close to the long-distance footpath. To make use of these pages you do not have to walk the whole route, nor even part of it, but if you do, good luck to you.
Not only do we show you where to find Angles Way accommodation and places at which to eat and drink (click in table below), but we show the guidebooks and maps required.

Notes on Angles Way Accommodation
We have listed the accommodation for each location in our Angles Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table below. Simply click on a location to open the page displaying the details of accommodation, camping, pubs, restaurants and public transport available at that location, including addresses and contact info
We display a wide range of Angles Way accommodation type: B&B, Guest House, Hotel, Inn, Hostel, Self catering, camping, etc., but inevitably in some locations the accommodation is limited. Not all accommodation will offer evening meals; this needs to be ascertained with the individual landlords. B&B (Bed and Breakfast) is almost always within the same house, farm, etc. as the people who run it. Guest Houses are usually expected to be grander than B&B, but are not necessarily so. Hotels are grander still, and with the expected higher cost, although there is a range of hotel quality. Hostels offer the most basic of accommodation above Bunk-House and Camping, and are therefore among the cheapest. Quite often some cleaning is required on the part of the resident.
We have included Camping, although there are relatively few official campsites. We advise telephoning the individual sites for info on facilities. Also, it may well be worth telephoning farmhouse B&B to enquire about camping.
We are always looking to improve our information, and welcome Angles Way accommodation recommendations.
Angles Way Restaurants and Pubs
Some ramblers will be content to stay in their B&B in the evening and relax. Others will want to explore the villages and towns and sample the pubs and restaurants. Luckily, many pubs serve good food, and at a reasonable cost. As mentioned above, there is plenty of stopping points along the Angles Way, whether for food or drink, and we have attempted to give as much information as possible on pubs and restaurants, especially regarding pubs serving real ale and/or food. However, restaurants and pubs are notoriously changeable. Please let us know if our information is out of date.

Angles Way Public Transport
There are not many train stations along the Angles Way, but there are plenty of bus services. Great Yarmouth, of course, has good transport links but Knettishall Heath is a disappointment, but we have included Thetford information. Please refer to the Angles Way Accommodation, Services and Mileage Table (below) for public transport, and click on a location for more info.
