A delightful, peaceful and inspiring garden, with plant sales and a cafe. Set in rolling,tranquil Northamptonshire countryside. Our forst visit was in the Autumn, looking forward to also seeing it in Spring and Summer.

What beautiful gardens. Didn't expect too much colour in late September but was wrong the colours were spectacular. Visited with my two elderly parents and managed to walk around a fair bit of the garden with them - although there were a number of steps and slopes most weren't too bad. They also allow you to bring the car into... More

First time visiting; fantastic location and beautiful setting. The cafe was wonderful but lacked vegan options bar the standard soup and salad. A red haired cafe staff member was very stern and rather obnoxious and impatient when asked for the soup of the day amongst other interactions. However the rest of the staff were very friendly.

I cannot recommend this garden enough. It's always a delight whatever the season. Be sure to visit the bottom end where there are ducks, chickens and even flamingos! The plants for sale in the nursery are always good and reasonably priced and you can be assured of a delicious lunch or tea and cakes in the cafe where they have... More

Lovely gardens set in a great location. Entry fee is minimal and definitely worth the money compared to other similar places. Lots of places to sit and watch the world go by and unwind. Bluebell hill is enchanting. Cafeteria supplies very nice tea and cake.

We are regulars here and love visiting the gardens throughout the year. There are always an assortment of lovely plants in bloom and the borders are lovely anytime of the year. We always have lunch when we visit. The food is delicious and fresh and is well presented and reasonably priced as well. It's worth dropping by for lunch even... More

Such a variety - flower beds to blue bell woods. Spend a whole afternoon in this 10 acre retreat and at the end feast yourself on excellent food and drinks. Don't go away without purchasing a plant or two from a very wide range grown at Coton Manor.

The gardens are beautifully laid out with streams and ponds and even flamingoes! The cafe has homemade soup, sandwiches, quiche etc. All very good quality. The choice of plants is excellent and prices reasonable.

This is a delightful place to visit whatever the season with much to see from lovely colourful beds and borders to bantams and flamingos, not to mention a parrot. There is plentiful parking and a good nursery with a wide range of plants plus a cafe with a reasonable choice of food. It is worth looking on their website to... More
