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.

You will never be disappointed whatever the season. For lovers of gardens whether yours is large or small this must surely be one of the finest gardens in England. Every corner you turn provides a 'wow' factor. Masses of snowdrops followed by millions of bluebells in the Spring, roses and clematis delight the eye in Summer along with the amazing herbaceous borders, not forgetting the wild flower meadow. Too much to describe to anyone who has never visited. On top of all these delights there is a wonderful tea room and as for the variety of plants for sale!! Just go and see for yourself.​
