Holt Garden Centre Entrance

We are proud to offer the Holt Garden Centre as part of the Kelling Estate, which was acquired in 2018 after being formerly known as Emcy.

Conveniently located within 1 mile of the A148 & A149, and signposted from both directions the Holt Garden Centre is perfectly situated for a relaxing day out. Having recently undergone extensive refurbishment it now has a large outdoor plant area, a new tea room affectionately known as The Garden Terrace Café and updated washroom facilities. As a family run business and home to luxury North Norfolk holiday cottages we wanted to create an area where families can meet and enjoy time together, whilst providing a range of products and services for the garden and home.

The Holt Garden Centre is the perfect destination to visit whilst holidaying in Holt or the North Norfolk coast. Perfect for families with an outdoor play area and somewhere to relax and eat, it’s a great place to spend time with your family, meet up with friends and to discover quality products and local produce.


Holt Garden Centre has a wide range of products suitable for a variety of home, garden and personal needs. The garden centre can be enjoyed all year round, no matter what the season is you can find beautiful plants and homeware, as well as delicious food.

The Garden Terrace Café is the new tea room situated inside the garden centre which opened after the refurbishment in March 2021. There is a wide range of chef-prepared meals and seasonal menus to choose from, all of which can be eaten indoors or outside in the extensive seating area. There is something for everyone with freshly prepared cakes, teas and coffees, breakfasts, and even a Little Seedlings menu for your children. Just past the terrace, there is a children’s outdoor play area to keep the little ones entertained whilst you catch up with friends and loved ones, and enjoy the time together.

One of the things you expect to find at a garden centre is an extensive range of outdoor and house plants, Holt Garden Centre is no exception. With a large selection of annuals, perennials and shrubs, our friendly staff have extensive knowledge to help you get your garden looking its best all year round. There is also a wide selection of compost and fertilisers suitable for a variety of different ground types which can be loaded directly into your car, ready for your journey home.
