Enjoy the large country garden

One of the great joys of being at this amazing country lodge is being able to have a large garden, great for photo opportunities. When you come to stay at Paradise Valley Lodge you too get to enjoy having a large garden – without any of the work!

Paradise Valley Lodge has over 1½  acres of parklike lawns and gardens  to wander around and enjoy.  The large lawns are ideal for intimate ceremonies, gatherings, family reunions bring the outdoor games or relax under the shady walnut tree.

The gardens have a mixture of many plants to ensure all year interest, including:

Native Bird Paradise

Paradise Valley Lodge is also home to many native and exotic birds attracted by the spring fed Ngongotaha Stream and native plantings.
Some of the birds you can expect to see (and hear) are:

Streamside Walk

Garden paths lead down to  the Ngongotaha Stream. This is a well known trout stream where you can see trout in the wild.

Majestic Mt Ngongotaha

Paradise Valley Lodge sits in a natural amphitheatre which provides us with 360 degree country views. To the south is the majestic Mt Ngongotaha which provides shelter from the southerly winds. In summer the mountain basks in the last of the evening sun and in winter it turns mystical when shrouded in mountain mist.
