About the garden

With French terraces, an Italian garden, a Dutch canal and even an observatory, the formal gardens beside Harlaxton Manor are a feast for the senses. Manicured lawns, blooming flowers and sculpted trees decorate the rolling hills that wrap around the manor which creates a spectacular backdrop.

The gardens also include an incredible 19th century conservatory where orange trees and tropical plants grow, some of which were donated by the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.

Visited on Sunday 24th August 2022. Manor was open to the public on Saturday & Sunday, for the first time in 190 years. Wonderful exteriors & interiors. Extensive Gardens were a bonus. This Manor is used by an American University , as an opportunity for overseas students to experience life in the UK . They live , work and play inside this magnificent building. What a privilege . What lucky people.😊

Appears like a fairytale palace, down the long entrance drive, stunning vista. Superb multi-level gardens, interior detail is amazing. Completely enjoyable visit.

Visited 23rd July , Very disappointed , we love looking round old building so thought this was perfect for us , only 4 rooms open in the house , we did as the question why a student just replied we live upstairs and the classes are downstairs , don't have an open house and gardens if the house isn't actually even half open , the grounds were just mainly lawns with a few interesting bits to see , less that 2hrs we left drive down the red and went to belvoir castle lovely place x

I love visiting here. It is one of the most beautiful venues locally for weddings. The events team are so professional and nothing is too much trouble. The reception staff are really friendly too.

Beautiful well maintained Manor House, very friendly. Lovely grounds with lots of seating, easy free parking The pianist was a lovely addition and added to the atmosphere. My husband appreciated the smoking area. Food was a little pricy but very good quality, queues were long and there were no trays, one poor lady dropped her food, perhaps take a picnic. A lovely place to visit, will probably visit again
