This beautiful garden at Coton Manor occupies a hillside position extending down from the 17th century manor house constructed of mellow Northamptonshire stone. The 10 acre garden has luxuriant borders that will delight the plant enthusiast while everyone will enjoy the garden’s charm and special atmosphere, with colour and interest throughout the seasons. Beyond the garden is a magical five acre bluebell wood and a wildflower meadow.

The Stableyard Cafe serves homemade lunches and teas when the garden is open. The extensive nursery has over a thousand varieties of plants, many of which are unusual and are propagated from the garden.


In this new book, owner of Coton Manor and passionate gardener Susie Pasley-Tyler charts how her passion for gardening developed and imparts the knowledge learnt, mistakes made and above all the sheer delight to be gained from this creative and restorative pastime. Susie describes how the garden has evolved since she and her husband, Ian, inherited the estate over 30 years ago, and her thinking behind its many and varied sites. Experienced and novice gardeners alike will be encouraged and enlightened by her account of being at the helm of one of the finest gardens in England. This beautifully illustrated book shows how it has achieved this coveted status.

The book is available to buy now for £30.00 (plus £5.00 p&p). To order your copy, please use the button below (currently we can only post copies within the UK).
