The Gardens

Lincoln and Annie have farmed in this spot of over 30 years and in that time a simple country paddock has been transformed into an extensive formal country garden filled with hidden delights.

The garden is host to many established trees and is divided into separate areas all calling you to discover what lies around the next bend. The garden is forever changing as mature trees and landscaped areas reflect the seasons. 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.

Ideal for families, groups or your next function

This garden makes a great family outing as the children are free to roam, play on the swings and slides. 

The garden is also home to a fully renovated church (The Abbey) resituated from Central Otago. This has been a labour of love for the family. The church, now complete with steeple and its own bell that you can ring yourself, has been host to weddings and other functions. Access can also be provided to a fully enclosed entertainment space suitable for afternoon teas etc upon request.

Open by appointment, group bookings advised in advance. There is ample carparking available for buses and cars. There are toilets available for use and the garden itself is flat with easy access for all ages
