A £1.25m refurbishment of a north Norfolk garden centre has met with approval from the first customers to get a look inside.
Holt Garden Centre in Holgate Hill, Kelling, reopened this week following the works, which have included the addition of a new food and drink area called the Garden Terrace.
Duncan Ross, managing director at Kelling Estate, which owns the centre, said: "People had in their mind how it might look but we've probably done better than what they thought was possible - I think they're a bit taken aback by it."
Mr Ross said the refurbishment also included new washrooms, a showroom, a redesigned entrance, outdoor plant area and home and gift room.
He added: "It's still early days for us, but I think people are enjoying coming to what feels like a light and airy, socially distanced space, and I think the fact that so much of it is undercover is a big plus.
In line with the roadmap, the Garden Terrace should be able to open for outdoor dining on April 12 and for indoor use on May 17.
