The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path together got the National Trail status in 1991. The first runs in the interiors of Norfolk and follows an ancient Roman road, probably itself a continuation of earlier tracks. The "peddars" who followed the tracks in the Middle Ages have given the trail its name. Nowadays, most of the country is cultivated.
The second part if the path is totally different, following the coast South from the point the Peddars way hits the North Sea to Great Yarmouth. This coast is very scenic, offering cliffs, beaches, salt marshes as well as stone-built villages.
So this may be your perfect marriage. Longing for the sea when the dusty Roman Road is hot and dry, and longing for the shelter in the woods when a storm hits the coast.
