Safari retreat in eastern Taranaki


Welcome to Te Popo Gardens, an idyllic and peaceful oasis on 34 acres (more or less) of lush woodlands, offering boutique bed & breakfast accommodation, and giving you paradise to live in and operate as a business.

Located only 15 minutes out of Stratford, this is the largest private garden in Taranaki, with rainforest and deep river gorges encircling acres of exotic and coniferous trees. And once you're over the front entrance's suspension bridge, you've arrived at an island oasis, with its boundary of water.

Refined over decades by its previous and current owners, there's plenty to do once guests and visitors arrive, with four bed-and-breakfast rooms, function centre and fairy village. The campground is the perfect retreat, with its solar-powered showers, bathroom and kitchenette and awe-inspiring viewing platform that looks out over the river gorge.

The four spacious themed accommodation rooms collectively sleep 10 with another two in overflow accommodation. Each has its own compact wood burner with the first load of wood provided free. The owners' quarters comprise separate living areas and two bedrooms.

Welcoming myriad gatherings over the years, this sensational setting has been popular for entertainers and musicians, plus the mystique of murder mystery evenings in the function centre. Popular with both New Plymouth locals and those travelling from further afar, Te Popo Gardens lures in repeat visitors from rest-home residents, car clubs, team-building days and weddings. Events are currently BYO but there's an opportunity to add a liquor licence for extra income. The weekend coffee shop and delicious ice cream are hits over summer.

And if this wasn't everything your heart and business mind could desire, this property also comes with a Holden Commodore, ride-on mowers, a large marquee for functions, garden and workshop tools - and two refreshing swimming holes!
