This is our 10th year at this historic and exciting venue in Leicestershire.

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.

"First time at this fair: great selection of plants, friendly stall holders giving all types of advice, lovely venue with helpful staff. Mum, Dad and I managed to bring a huge collection back home. Will definitely be back!" - Esther on Facebook

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

The house will also be open at normal charges.
