Oakhampton Lodge


The Garden

Tall trees, expansive lawns, roses and perennials make the 3 acre garden at Oakhampton Lodge a pleasure to wander through.

In spring the bluebells and euphorbia offer a grand display followed by the many roses and drifts of perennials and hostas through the summer. Weeping willows, hazels and oaks provide shelter and a beautiful backdrop.  This very fertile spot in North Canterbury is a pleasure to garden in with plenty of water to keep it green even in a hot, dry Canterbury summer. 

Oakhampton Lodge offers bed and breakfast accommodation in the heart of Ohoka village, North Canterbury. This green and lush area with its beautiful gardens, pin-oak lined roads, mountain views, and both small and large farms provides the perfect location for those wishing to enjoy a country stay within only 20 minutes of Christchurch and its international airport.

The Gardener

Jackie has planted everything in the garden over the last 28 years while Angus will happily maintain it if there is a machine to use. The perfect combination, they have enjoyed turning a paddock of grass into the established garden you see today.
