Hetty’s tearoom has recently opened its doors in the Green Flag winning Holt Country Park.

North Norfolk District Council is proud to be supporting a thriving local business in the grounds of one of its most beautiful spots. The tearoom’s opening comes after public feedback made it clear that a café in the park was the addition people wanted the most.

Hetty’s is a family run business, operated by Karen Fuller, her mother, Heather (whose nickname is Hetty), her daughter and her husband David in the beautiful backdrop of Holt Country Park. The tearoom itself is housed in a small yet stunning wooden cottage, chosen by Karen to “fit in very well with the natural surroundings”. Even the colour scheme was chosen with the park’s natural beauty in mind. Karen and her family wanted every element to feel like it belonged in the woods.

With a wide range of treats on offer from homemade cakes, scones (baked by David) and sausage rolls to sandwiches, toasties, coffees and teas, visitors are guaranteed to find something they will love. Karen and her family aim to make the tearoom as inclusive as possible and as such offer vegan and gluten free options.

The tearoom offers wooden decking to house outdoor seating, lovely views and free Wi-Fi.

Despite having only been open a handful of weeks the public have responded very positively to the launch of Hetty’s and footfall has been high.

The tearoom is currently open seven days a week during the summer months, from 8.30 am until 5pm, in winter they are looking to reduce their opening hours, but still plan to open every day.

Cllr Virginia Gay, Portfolio holder for Culture and Wellbeing said: “This is just what people have been asking for - a lovely café in Holt Country Park. We are lucky to have so many lovely cafés in North Norfolk and now there’s another one for all of us to enjoy.  Thank you so much to everyone at Hetty’s.”
