Visited this lovely Hall & Gardens and was not disappointed at all-everything runs like clockwork there and the tour of the house and delightful guide made it so interesting. Very pretty gardens too. (Also yummy cake in the tea rooms!)

Stumbled upon this place by chance. Beautiful gardens and an interesting tour of the house. This said, it was a bit unnerving having doors locked behind you. Presumably having two guides for a group of just 6 was also a security measure. The guide who spoke was clearly knowledgeable and the gardens provided numerous photo opportunities.

Lovely gardens but not worth the entrance fee, even as a concession! What attraction these days does not accept debit or credit card but accepts cheques? Refreshments oh yes cash only! Staff unhelpful, in order to get cash for refreshments there only suggestion was to travel to a cash machine - in the next village! We had to cut our... More

Lovely parkland & gardens! It's in a beautiful, peaceful setting. We also visited the house which was nice as it had some great paintings & porcelains. Had a nice slice of homemade cake & cup of tea in the tearoom. All in all a very pleasant visit will be back again!

Cottesbrooke Hall and Gardens were recommended to us by family and we were not disappointed with our visit. The extensive park surrounding the Hall and gardens kept us entertained for nearly an hour before we took the tour of the Hall. What a delightful home and the numerous sporting paintings are among the best collection in the UK.

I visited here on a very wet bank Holiday Monday but in fact it made the stunning gardens more exquisite. Each turn of a corner brings another wow factor and the wildlife gardens must not be missed. The tour around the house was led by a lady who described what we were seeing with the expertise to say enough without... More

Visited Cottesbrooke Hall & Gardens on a beautiful sunny day last week, we arrived at 2pm when they opened and booked ourselves on the House tour for 2.30. We were really looking forward to seeing the sporting art having an interest in flat racing, however we were unable to view the art in depth as the tour was just 45... More

Having joined the HHA (free entry) three months ago my wife and I decided to visit Cottesbrooke on the way back home after having gone to Barkers shoe factory in Northampton and found it well worth the visit. We arrived and were given a ticket time to have the tour (approx 45 mins) so having 30 mins to wait we... More

Spent a very relaxing and lovely morning here in early June. The gardens are glorious. There is a small restaurant which serves lovely lunches, sandwiches, quiche etc. Nice little gift shop. Well worth a visit.

Visited in May 2014 on a Bank Holiday Monday, we were lucky with the weather which encouraged us to walk the gardens, which were lovely. I am not a great garden fan/expert but these were so welcoming, they were a delight to walk around exploring. And, as other people have said, don’t miss the wild garden. The house tour was... More
