Wildflower Meadow - this summer the Longhorn Cattle will be allowed to graze the meadow in an effort to reduce the number of dominant species such as Knapweed, Hogweed and plantain. If this proves successful we will return to our normal management routine of mowing for a hay crop at the end of July then grazing the aftermath, removing the cattle in late Autumn
The Garden is open from TUESDAY to SATURDAY
12noon - 5.30pm
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.
As well as enjoying the garden, many visitors will want to explore the extensive nursery, take light lunches or teas from the Stableyard Café, or visit the garden shop. Garden courses complete the range of activities available at Coton.
