   Take time out to discover a place that is fascinating and different, just 9 minutes from Hamiltons CBD. We are excited to share the Hadleigh garden which featured in the July 2021 publication of 'House & Garden'

    Welcome to the new ‘Hadleigh', our original ‘Hadleigh’ was in Central Christchurch. A Category 1  Historic home it was built in the late 19th Century and sadly could not withstand the violent earthquake that struck that region in February 2011.

     We moved North and purchased a stunning Aaron Craddock designed home in the Waikato.it was built in 2004 but sat forlornly in a 2 ha. field.We set about creating a 1 ha.woodland garden,we planted over 2,500 trees, shrubs and hedging, this proved cathartic after our earlier trauma.We brought the 'Hadleigh' name with us in memory of what was lost. Situated 1 hour 20 mins  from  Auckland's International airport, the rural setting is just minutes from Hamilton city. We have the best of both worlds and are delighted to welcome visitors to share our special place.
