Refreshments are available in the tea rooms during garden opening hours. The Greedy Goose is now established at Mannington Garden tea rooms.  Talented chef Helen Lewis provides an interesting range of mainly locally sourced food, with many homemade treats including delicious soups, tarts, cakes and biscuits, with specially made picnics and food to take away.  It is open every day that the gardens are open and for events as well as at Christmas. She also caters for private functions, bespoke hampers and seasonal food gifts.

The gardens around this medieval moated manor house feature a wide variety of plants, trees
(around 50 varieties) and shrubs in many different settings.

Throughout the gardens are thousands of roses, especially classic varieties. 
In the Heritage and Modern Rose Gardens are roses in areas with designs reflecting their date of origin from the fifteenth century to the present day.  Work continues to replant areas which were planted in the 1980s.  Complementary planting of other species to fit in with the dated gardens continues every year.  The Contemporary Garden features more roses, shrubs and herbaceous borders with brighter colours and modern varieties. 

Near to the Hall is a knot garden with scented plants and on the South Lawn is a classical temple and the recently planted Sensory Garden with plants selected for touch, sound and taste, as well as smell and colour.

Between the wood walk and the 20th Century Garden has been developed with an amazing stump garden where ferns are being encouraged.  A shady area designed as a garden for the less able, with raised beds and an unusual water feature, can be found near the vegetable garden.

Wildflowers are encouraged around the landscaped lakes and in the Chapel Garden, where follies surround the ancient ruins of Mannington Church.  Thanks to a grant from English Heritage substantial work was carried out in 2009.

Children are not forgotten, with a special area of the garden including  a willow tunnel and a playground with Playdale climbing frame as well as toys for younger children.

Mannington Gardens Shop is stocked with souvenirs, crafts, drinks and snacks, as well as plants.
Amber's Bell tents are available at Mannington Gardens.
