Each season brings its pleasures in our well established gardens and orchard....

Colenso’s garden is designed to be enjoyed by its many visitors. A seasonal treat in spring and summer is lunch al fresco under the shade of gorgeous big old trees. Wander through the herb garden and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of a well-established garden, including an orchard of mandarin trees.

There’s a great playground and toys for the children, so you'll all enjoy the Colenso experience.


The mandarins are ripe and now on sale and on a fine day you can still enjoy lunch in the garden.

Open Mon to Fri 10am to 2.30pm, Sat & Sun 10am to 3pm

These hours apply until Labour Weekend in October

Closed Easter Friday and Christmas & Boxing Days
