over 7 years by Wendy Trembecki 5 / 5I visited The Cottesbrooke Hall Plant Finders Fair at the end of June 2008 and enjoyed a wonderful day among the stalls of wonderful specialist nurseries exhibiting wonderful and unusual plants. It was a great day out with lot's of stalls also selling garden paraphernalia too. I enjoyed the gardens immensely as they were also open, although the house was not. Yesterday though I returned to visit the house and was completely amazed by the treasures that are inside. It really is a lovely place with something for everyone and I can't wait for next year's Plant Finders Fair!
