Nestled in grape country, hidden behind high hedges, lies the private but nationally acclaimed garden of Upton Oaks. Surrounding the 1911 Victorian homestead are gardens that have been recognised as a 'Garden of National Significance' as awarded by the NZ Gardens Trust. The colourful gardens comprise of intimate garden rooms contained within a formal framework of hedges and brick walls.
The much photographed 17th century style Knot Garden is a favourite for visitors. Relax on a park bench where you can take in views of the herbaceous borders and pond. A small rustic olive grove with a winding path, leads to large raised vegetable beds and espaliered fruit trees.
The blue and white gardens surrounding a French iron gazebo compliment our historic guest house, Laurella cottage at the rear of the property which is available to book for accommdation.
Upton Oaks Garden has graced the pages of numerous magazines plus television screens and is visited by many national and international groups each year.
