Tudor Park Country Stay & Garden, Invercargill
Welcome to Tudor Park Country Stay and Garden, where guests are offered quality accommodation with private facilities in a peaceful garden setting. The property includes two comfortable queen rooms plus a twin room, designed to fit the requirements of any guest.
The garden at Tudor Park makes your visit something special. It is a ‘must see’ by individual gardeners and groups from around the world as well as local ( by arrangement ). Created by Joyce and her late husband John together over the last 17 years, the garden includes many different areas, plantings and features. Around the house are the more structured areas, which give the opportunity to grow special plants that can be viewed and enjoyed from within the house.
The aim has always been to use the site to the best advantage. With this in mind the Long Walk has been developed through the creation of two large pergolas, each of which is eight uprights long, creating a vista down the main axis of the garden and drawing the eye to the open landscape beyond. John marked out the original layout and was dedicated to building the many arbours, bridges, pergolas and seats – all of which define the garden and its many spaces.
The rondel encloses a collection of Old Shrub roses within a hornbeam hedge. A canal leads you to another rondel where a sundial, the first prize from a regional garden competition, is surrounded by a Prunus lusitanica hedge. A large pond, originally used for recreational shooting, has been adapted to accommodate many choice bog and water plants.
There are seats and arbours throughout the garden, offering pleasant resting places along the way to enjoy the birds, plants and peace.
