Natural Surroundings – Nursery, Gardens and Cafe

This is little gem on the road between Holt and Blakeney and the perfect woodland stop-over as you move from retail therapy to beach bliss. There are woodland, meadow and bee and butterfly gardens, a plant nursery, gift shop and an 8 acre reserve by the side of the River Glaven. Their mission is to champion wild-life and wild-friendly gardening, and inspiration and advice is in abundance. The cafe is a particular delight where you can sit inside overlooking the action packed bird-feeders, cosy up to the wood-burner or eat outdoors in the tea-garden. They offer a wide range of snacks and cakes – top marks from us for their cheese on toast which is simply delicious.

Open daily May to September and all but Mondays for the rest of the year.  For more info see their website
