This is an unusual and exciting venue for our plant fairs in Leicestershire and we have an extra March date to keep all you plant hunters happy.

The Medieval Manor House dating back to 1280, has a fascinating history and was owned by one of the Gunpowder Plotters! Donington le Heath Manor House is a surviving example of a family home built around seven hundred years ago and modernised in 1618. Surrounding the Manor House, are period gardens and woodland planted as part of the development of the National Forest. The gardens, re-created in a 17th century style, include flower and herb gardens, an ornamental maze and an orchard. The Old Barn Tea Room will be open and serving home baked cakes, light lunches and a range of hot and cold drinks.

The venue has lots to see and explore with something for all ages, plus the bonus of a great Plant Hunters Fair to enjoy!
