Overview

Welcome to our private family garden, situated in the rolling Ashley Downs. Designed with the help of N.Z. Landscape Architect, Ben McMaster, our relaxed country garden set in a farm environment has been 20 years in the making. Breedenbroek is the perfect venue for wedding ceremonies/photographs and the ideal destination for garden groups and social outings. Enjoy an afternoon tea or a fully catered lunch from local artisans. Our location is 30 minutes north of Christchurch city, on the outskirts of Rangiora with it's excellent range of boutique shops, cafes/restaurants and surrounding wineries. Breedenbroek Gardens are open by appointment ONLY all year round. There is ample off-street parking for cars, minivans, and coaches. Admission charge is $10 for adults and free for children. We would greatly appreciate advance warning of your visit. Google maps will often wrongly direct you to the Boundary Rd in Fernside. We are the Boundary Rd in Ashley/Sefton - 5kms North of Rangiora.

Without reservation Breedenbroek was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand's South Island. The hospitality and the garden's beauty made our visit special. We especially appreciated the diversity, yet harmony, in the design and plants along with the contrast of formal elements...More
