About Cottesbrooke Hall & Gardens

Cottesbrooke is a wonderful Queen Anne house dating from 1702 and set in delightful award winning gardens in rural Northamptonshire. The remarkable 18th century landscaping of the Park, its vistas and lakes provide the backdrop to the Hall.

The renowned gardens are of great variety with many specimen trees. In the tranquil Wild Garden, laid out around a stream, you can enjoy wild flowers, specimen acers, bamboos and gunneras. The more formal gardens surrounding the Hall are a series of individually planted ‘rooms’.

There are pergolas, statues and rose borders, double herbaceous borders, pools and ponds and, on the south front, the formal parterre. The gardens run to 13 acres in total. A number of distinguished designers have been involved in the development of the gardens: Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe and Dame Sylvia Crowe in the middle of the 19th century and more recently James Alexander Sinclair, Angela Collins, both locally based in Northamptonshire and Arne Maynard.
