The house is situated in a wonderfully rich architectural area/town. Conveniently there are car parks within 5 mins walk. It has been lovingly restored and result a charming little gem of Mackintosh's work. The best fully formed and furnished rooms are the hall, kitchen and guest bedroom. The postcards were a bargain scoop at 3 for £1. We went on a wet Saturday in September, so it was pleasantly quiet and we had each room to ourselves. Dupre Abbey is also nearby and set in beautiful parkland.

We have visited Coton Manor Gardens frequently over the past few years. No matter what the season it is always beautiful. The cottage garden displays are just stunning and on our last visit a week ago we overheard someone saying that it beats most National Trust gardens. We have been National Trust members for many years and I am inclined to agree. The gardens are small enough to enjoy without feeling tired. The tea rooms offer hot and cold meals, lovely baguettes and cream teas.

I have visited several times, and found the museum a very interesting place to visit, the lasting memory is when we entered to recruiting room when an automated voice of the recruiting sgt speaks and encouraging you to sign up and take the kings shilling, the history of the Northamptonshire regt is on display, which any history buff or anyone with an interest in military things would enjoy, I don't know how the displays will change during the current revamp, but its worth a few hours.
