An extensive formal country garden filled with hidden delights. Our garden is host to many established trees and is divided into separate areas. As you wander around the garden into the different areas be prepared to discover miniature English houses laid out in a village setting. These are dotted around the garden and are handmade by Annie and have entranced visitors over the years.

The garden is also home to a recently renovated church (The Abbey) resituated from Central Otago. This has been a labour of love for the family and has only recently opened. The church, now complete with steeple and its own bell that you can ring yourself, has been host to weddings and other functions.

This garden makes a great family outing as the children are free to roam, play on the swings and slides. Friendly farm pets will wander up to you along the fence line so be ready to encounter deer, kune kune pigs and a couple of lamas along your journey. There are toilets available for use and the garden itself is flat with easy access for all ages.

Open by appointment, group bookings advised in advance.
