Great place to spend an afternoon in any season. Beautiful grounds and magnificent greenhouses. The meandering paths are interesting to explore. The grand manor house is a relic of times gone by.

I’ve been to the Planting Fields before, but have never been inside Coe Hall. Regrettably, I chose the hottest day in July to visit. The mansion does not have air conditioning. With very few windows opened and fans in only a couple of rooms, the...More

Wonderful place to visit. My wife and I visit at least three times a year and there is always something different to see. The main greenhouse is worth the price admission alone.
