Whatton House and Gardens has a sense of serenity and charm that draws you in.

A myriad of paths lead through the woodland garden, carpeted in spring by thousands of bulbs and wild flowers, while an abundance of flowering shrubs and ornamental trees catch the eye around the spacious lawns.

In the summer the old fashioned rose garden, with its extensive views towards Charnwood Forest, and the magnificent herbaceous border sheltered by the high brick wall of the working kitchen garden, provide a profusion of colour.

The autumn brings a change to the colour of leaves on the magnificent mature trees, some over 200 years old.
