What beautiful gardens. Didn't expect too much colour in late September but was wrong the colours were spectacular. Visited with my two elderly parents and managed to walk around a fair bit of the gar... read more »

I most certainly did not dislike it !!!! In fact we plan taking friends from Cambridgeshire on Tuesday. We have been out of the country for four years & renewing our acquaintance with Coton was a our delight
Really nicely set out, good Bluebell woods too.
Have visited half a dozen times in different seasons and enjoyed every visit. Not a huge garden but lovely position with well designed and varied settings (woodland, several water features, lawn, mixed borders and good panorama with the old manor a nice backdrop). What I particularly liked were the wide variety of plants, plenty of old favorites but a lot I was unfamiliar with. The flamingos are an exotic touch (not necessary in my opinion but I noticed the children were fascinated by them). The planting is interesting and tasteful with good combinations and not repetitive and a big plus is that most of the plants are labelled so you know what you're looking at which is useful for keen horticulturalists. The garden opens for a few weeks in February for the Hellebores and Snowdrops (and some others). The staff are friendly and helpful with enquiries and the garden is very well maintained (e.g regularly mulched, no tired overgrown plants, shrubs properly pruned and very few 'weeds'). The nursery also has an extensive choice and the plants are reasonably priced. My only criticism is the menu in the cafe; I would like a different soup next time.
A good afternoon Beautiful gardens Excellent lunch well prepared and very tasty
The gardens were absolutely beautiful.Will be returning next year to see the bluebells bloom.
