Te Popo Gardens and Accommodation

An established Bed & Breakfast with beautiful lush gardens

We take pleasure in welcoming you to a paradise, a peaceful setting on 34 acres of woodlands where nature never sleeps; a woodland Bed & Breakfast just outside of Stratford. Every season has its own story to tell and when night welcomes the day, you step into a private little paradise of beautiful plants, flowers and trees. The huge variety of birds in song invite you to relax, and let Mother Nature work her magic on your tired soul. Our woodland picnic spots are perfect for a little escape from the daily stress and our beautiful gardens are the perfect wedding venue for the nature lover.


We offer four individually furnished rooms, each with its own decorative theme and warmth that attracts those looking for a place to recharge… A destination of relaxation and freedom where the pressures of life are forgotten; a garden Bed & Breakfast. Book your accommodation today!
