Bradleys Garden, created and owned by Melana & Simon Bradley, was recognised in 2022 as a garden of national significance and awarded 5 Stars by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. Recently featured in NZ House & Garden magazine, the rural farming back drop just 3km from Taumarunui provides the most peaceful quiet environment for you to relax in.
Our meandering landscaped 5 acre country garden will amaze and delight you as you progress through the many different ‘rooms’ not knowing what lies around the corner. The garden was established in 1994 and has evolved over time to become a beautiful space to enjoy the peace and tranquility.
The many rooms are linked by pathways to reveal stone walls, pergolas, ponds and vast sweeping steps along with an olive grove.
Your journey will take you through two different pond areas, the Italian garden ,then down the Lavender lane and past the limestone terraced amphitheater to the cottage garden complete with quaint rest room.
You may then want to relax in the gazebo on supremely comfortable furniture and enjoy the beautiful bordered garden that surrounds you with the limestone fountain pond tinkling away in the distance.
Bradleys Garden also offers a private self-contained studio suite that exudes elegance and comfort. We are open by appointment only; email or call us for more details.
