About the garden

This peaceful ten acre garden occupies a hillside position extending down from the 17th century manor house, constructed of mellow Northamptonshire stone. Landscaped on different levels, it comprises a series of distinctive smaller gardens, providing variety and interest throughout the season, and enhanced by flowing streams, fountains and ponds. Beyond the confines of the garden, there is a magical five acre bluebell wood and a colourful wildflower meadow at its best in June & July.

Opening times

The garden, nursery and cafe will be open from 1st April for the season with slightly different opening times. 11.30am – 5.00pm Tuesday – Saturday Closed Sundays and Mondays (except Bank Holiday weekends)

Gem of a place. Historic house members get free entry to the garden. Parking is across a country road , so be careful when heading to the entrance. The gardens are beautiful presented with many different types of areas , with streams , ponds (with flamingos) and a bluebell wood. There is an excellent plant nursery on site as well as a large outdoor cafe. Food and staff were all excellent..highly recommended

We visited in late April to see the Bluebell woods, which were amazing. The Manor gardens were beautiful even though it wasn't in full bloom yet. We had a delicious lunch before we explored and after we had a cuppa and a delicious wedge of cake....highly recommended the ginger cake, the Cherry & Almond cake and the coffee & walnut cake they were all fab (there was three of us, I wasn't being greedy 😉) Great day had by all and definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys this sort of thing.

Flamingo birds are the best thing about this place 😍😍🦩🦩🦩 There is a huge garden that you visit , entrance is 7£ adult and if I remember right 3£ kids. The Flamingo are walking freely so you might get lucky and get a great picture with them There is also a plant nursery and if you go there in the spring time they are offering tulips/daffodils for donations 😍 A coffee shop is at the entrance/exit with outdoor tables, they are serving beverage and ice cream 🍦 and sweets 🥧🍰🍪

Beautiful gardens. Go at the end of April,/beginning of May to see the stunning bluebell wood. Loved the ducks, chickens and flamingos. Excellent lunch and cake. Good veggie choices. Well worth the entrance price.

Absolutely loved it here !! Well worth the money £9 Not huge but very well kept and lovely selection of plants . Visited Barnsdale Gardens last week and I would say Coton Manor is far superior ! The garden is peaceful and areas to sit and relax got busier in afternoon.We went in July and the borders looked lovely.The water features /ponds are beautiful look out for the flamingos duck and chickens. I especially liked the woodland ,water and bog garden . Looking forward to going back will buy the season ticket in February next year as it only last till September so not worth it this year .The food was great sour dough baguette was warm a little disappointed with the portion of crisps with it 4/5 crisps in total !! £23 for coffee elderflower drink x2 baguettes ,cheese chutney and home cooked ham salad ! (Average prices ) Well stocked Plant nursery reasonably price good quality plants ! Can visit cafe and nursery for free ! We're told they haven't had a plant sale for years so leaflet was wrong .Very helpful staff who helped us find plants for sale we had seen in the gardens .
