The garden will surprise and enchant you - over the last 38 years it has been transformed into a succession of surprises as you move from one landscaped area to the next.
Lose yourself in 4 acres of tranquility - beautiful at all times, breathtaking in spring. Friendly fantails follow you around while you chance upon a host of gardens. The variety of textures and colours is endless.
For garden lovers and all other interested clubs Ribblesdale is an absolute must for those wanting to get away from the rush of everyday life into a restful, unique NZ garden experience.
Ribblesdale is developing its own micro-climate and
eco-system where environmental theories have been integrated into the design of the gardens and butterfly boudoir.
