Discover our Hidden Gem for a Perfect Day Out
The Dutch house wildlife garden near Crayke, North Yorkshire is an ecological and sustainable garden focussed on attracting wildlife. The oasis contains a collection of native trees, herbaceous borders, a wild flower meadow and a display of sculptures. The gardens themselves are developed and designed by owner of Dutch house Sjaak Kastelijn, who is former manager of York Museum Gardens.
In our relaxing, child friendly art café you can sit down, unwind and enjoy a healthy homemade meal. We serve a fine selection of teas, coffees, homemade cakes, breakfasts, light lunches, homemade soups and Dutch specialities such as our famous sweet and savoury Pancakes and Poffertjes. If you fancy something different then this is the place to be, serving food with continental flavours, but also a touch of traditional english baking and cooking. In the arts & crafts filled area inside our cafe you can browse and buy unique art and gifts from local artists then pop across a courtyard to Kunsthuis Gallery.
