Upton Oaks Garden and Accommodation

View image gallery

Only 10 minutes from Blenheim Airport or the centre of town, nestled in grape country can be found the private garden of Upton Oaks. Surrounding the 100 year old Victorian homestead are gardens that have been recognised as a 'Garden of National Significance' as awarded by NZ Gardens Trust. These colourful gardens comprise of garden rooms contained within a formal framework of hedges and 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. The rustic olive grove, a contrast to the groomed formal gardens, leads to large raised vegetable beds and espaliered fruit trees.
Tucked into the gazebo gardens is Laurella Cottage, a historic colonial cottage luxuriously appointed accommodation, for those who wish to linger longer - which can be viewed and booked on www.laurella.co.nz
Please phone or email to arrange a time to visit the gardens. Open October to April each season. Garden entry fee $12 per person.
