Beautiful gardens, full of colour and interest, a wildflower meadow full of flowers and butterflies and a bluebell wood (no bluebells in July, but lovely high shady beeches). Nursery with lots of unusual and reasonably priced plants. It's worth popping in for tea and cake if you are visiting other places nearby; tables set out under a huge shady tree,... More

There's not much to dislike here. It's a small garden compared to the Stately Homes, but there's much to see and enjoy, and re-enjoy at different times of the year. It's a place you can take visitors to the area to show what a great place Northamptonshire is. We particularly like visiting in the spring when the bluebell wood is... More

We have visited on many occasions having purchased a season ticket. A lovely venue for lunch and a walk around the bluebell woods in the spring and the formal gardens complete with the very beautiful birds. Very peaceful and relaxing.

A variety of plants in their natural surroundings. Able to purchase plants. Quick service with lunch and afternoon tea. Loved the interaction with the Flamingos.

Beautiful gardens, including a wildflower meadow, bog garden, water features, gloriously colourful formal borders, woodland, quite a few nicely placed benches and seating areas and so much more!

We were staying in Northampton for the weekend and decided to go to Coton Manor on the Saturday. What a delightful place it is. The gardens were beautiful and full of colour and although the bluebells had finished it was still pleasant to walk through the wood in the shade on a very sunny and hot day. The cafe was... More

Coton Manor is one of my parents favourite destinations and as it was Fathers Day we thought we would take a picnic and revisit the gardens. As we found out after the 40 mile drive, the gardens are only open on a Sunday in April and May. A little embarrassing from our perspective but wont stop us coming back. The... More

Very peaceful authentic country garden. This just felt like a space well loved and tended. The chickens, ducks, birds and the unexpected exotic flamingoes in the middle of Northamptonshire was a welcome surprise. If you have an hour or 2 to spare this would make a perfect stroll that is suitable for all the family, inclusive of anyone with poor... More

Really nice lunch after visit to Bluebell woods. Service was very good and seating outside was just perfect, like the weather.
