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.

Harlaxton Manor is a beautiful example of a loved and well maintained historic building. The Christmas display was excellent, tasteful and had plenty of information on the rooms you visited. You were welcomed into the sound of a pianist playing and a Christmas Carole or two being sung. Very festive and helpful staff on call full of festive cheer. The gardens were equally impressive.

I've been wanting to visit Harlaxton Manor for a while now as the architecture when viewed from the outside makes one most curious to see the inside. And the interior doesn't disappoint. What an interesting and beautiful country house. We took advantage of the Open House taking place this weekend and had a most enjoyable time finding out more about the manor and it's history. The gardens too were a delight to stroll through with their clever layout on numerous levels. Just one small critique. Something that would have made our visit a tad more satisfying was if there had been a timed entry system running, to balance out the number of people visiting. Too many visitors at the same time more often than not takes away from the atmosphere of a place somewhat. Apart from that, a wonderfully historic house well worth an outing.

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.😊

Visited for the first time on Saturday with a friend and we loved it! So many interesting details in each room and the architecture and decor is stunning. The gardens are a pleasure even in Winter, highly recommend a visit on an open day ☺️

A beautiful building built around 1830s, with a long driveway approaching it. Parking on the grass. The house is only open downstairs, where there is a cafe. Outside in the gardens are benches and picnic tables. The garden pond is overgrown and green with weeds. The garden is mainly banks of lawn with walks The only plants and flowers are in the area behind the house which could be better maintained. The house has been used for many films and dramas. The house is better maintained than the gardens, due to it's wedding catering I feel.
