Norfolk Coast Path - which section?

We're staying along the north Norfolk coast this weekend for 2 nights and we want to walk a section (approx 10 miles, give or take 2 miles) of the Coast Path and then take the Coasthopper bus back to the car. Can anyone recommend the most scenic section? We'd love to stop off for lunch somewhere along the way but it's not necessary. Thanks

My preference would be the section from Sheringham to Cley or Blakeney, where you get various types of coast.

Thank you. Covering different types of terrain sounds good. I'll go research that section now!

The section from Morston to Holkham via Wells is also good. There is a great view of Wells as you approach the town and you can enjoy the legendary fish and chips on the quayside. There is a pub which serves food just off the path at Stiffkey. From Wells to Holkham you can walk in the woods which are adjacent to the beach if you want a change.

A quick update following our recent trip to Norfolk. We managed to incorporate most of the above suggestions into our itinerary and had a wonderful time.

We parked the car at the National Trust car park at Morston Quay (free as we're NT members) and walked from Morston Quay to Salthouse via Blakeney and Cley (aprox. 10 miles). We had intended to to walk as far as Weybourne but after 2 miles of walking on the shingles decided that the shingles were pretty hard on the knees so we detoured in land to Salthouse and caught the Coasthopper bus back past Morston into Wells-next-the-Sea. We had a lovely wander around Wells and also managed fish and chips on the quay as suggested above!

After lunch we then walked from Wells back to Morston Quay and the car (aprrox 6 miles).

The following day we parked at Lady Anne’s Drive car park outside Holkham and walked from the beautiful beach there, passing the gaily painted beach huts into Wells and then back through the pine forest to the car.

It was a wonderful weekend break with beautiful scenery, nice people, delicious food and quaint villages. Thank you both for your suggestions.
