Open to public, small entrance fees, Enjoy the well maintained garden which is free to all. A short distance from the beautiful beach, very popular among the locals.

It’s part of Wenderholm Regional park so when you visit the park there are paths that lead to this homestead and it’s well kept cottage garden. You have to pay a small token to get inside the house for a visit. Lovingly maintained by volunteers.

Historic house from early days. $5 per head to visit 1pm - 4pm although this may only be on weekends. The Wenderholm park is definitely worth a visit especially in summer.

enjoyable enclave on a less desirable day, the rain made us run for cover and we found this house, a lot of history to be adsorbed, great for the children

NZ doesn't have much in the way of history so its great to find some we can actually visit. The guide was very helpful and informative and obviously loved the place. The grounds and the beach are a great please to visit too.

We visited this house on Waitangi Day, and lucked out, as it was free entry, but certainly worth paying the usual $5 entry or more. A gorgeous house, full of wonderful historic furniture and memorabilia, and with a fascinating history. Our 2 volunteer guides were...More
