Welcome to Natural Surroundings

Natural Surroundings is a small business based in North Norfolk close to the town of Holt and just a stone’s throw from Blakeney and Cley-next-the-Sea. We offer a very special combination of wildlife-friendly gardens and grounds, cafe, shop and plant sales.

Natural Surroundings is owned and managed by Anne and Simon Harrap, and either Anne or Simon (or both) are usually on site, and are always happy to offer help and advice.

Open Tuesday to Sundays throughout the year from 10am (in addition open Bank Holiday Mondays and open every day in July and August, during half term weeks and in the Christmas and Easter school holidays ).


We will be closed on 24th, 25th, 26th and 27th December, but otherwise will be open as usual, 10am to 4pm, including 31st December New Year’s Eve, 1st January New Year’s Day and Monday 2nd January.

January Closure: The café will be be closed from Monday 9th January to Friday 20th January 2017 inclusive for maintenance and decoration. We are likely to be on site for much of the time and will be able to supply bird food (including bulk bags of seeds and peanuts), bird feeders and plants. If you are coming any distance, it is, however, best to phone in advance.
