  • Such a happy place full of warmth even on a rainy day! A family favourite, honest basic food, homely and friendly whatever the time of year.  more »
  • This cosy cafe in the woods is an absolute must for nature lovers. We watched so many varieties of birds and a squirrel as we enjoyed our bacon sandwiches and mugs of tea by the log burner!  more »

  • Lovely place. Totally awesome. Visited today with my 92 year old mother. Staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside was it was a little tricky getting round as my mum needs a walker to get around but nothing that anyone can do about this
  • I probably have not been in 15 years or more but my wife and I visited last week....What a wonderful place to spend some time chill out and enjoy nature and have a cuppa GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  • Beautiful! A must visit for wild plant lovers. Lovely cafe with vista onto visiting birds at feeders. Highly recommend.
  • The cafe is very friendly with good quality food, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The nursery is reasonably priced and has wild plants that can be difficult to find elsewhere.
  • At Natural Surroundings you will be able to spend a good couple of hours at least getting close to nature. There is a combination of woodland, meadow and riverbank where you can take a short circular walk through these habitats. During our visit today, we saw some harvest mice which are being cared for in an aquarium, some unusual looking friendly sheep, newts, frogs, red squirrels in their conservation area and so many different birds. The large bird hide near the river bank is a good place to spot kingfishers amongst other species.The owners hand out laminated information sheets to guide you around and there are information boards dotted around. There is a small shop and good cafe selling home made cakes and a limited but good quality lunch menu. You can watch the birds on the feeders while having a snack yourself. There is also a nice plant shop where the plants look healthy and reasonably priced. Access to the shop, plant shop and cafe are free of course but access beyond here cost just £3 per adult.
