Lovely historical building, the volunteer guide was very knowledgeable about it’s history, previous owners and the items on show. Surrounding gardens well kept. Easy road parking. Well worth visiting.

We stumbled across Broadgreen Historic House an a miserable rainy day and decided to take a look. Beautifully captured slice of history. A really enjoyable experience.

We visited today for the carols on the green, complete with local brass band. The compere asked if anyone was from out of town, and we were the only group from the UK - he kept coming back to this as part of his commentary, and one of our party (most of whom have been brass band members at one time) got special mention and a photo with the band as they are currently a member back home. We also were included in the free viewing of the house for local residents, and as the youngest child of our group had been on the proper guided tour once |(where he was allowed to sit in the bath to compare size), he was allowed by the guide to show some of us around (knowing we were on CCTV). I expect his commentary was fairly vague, but he had listened to the proper guide the first time, even if his recap was a bit mixed up, and he made up what he didn't know, but, how lovely to be trusted. The house is a lovely, well preserved exhibit, and would make anyone from the UK feel at home. The rose garden looked beautiful, hope to explore that at a later date. Another warm and friendly welcome from the people of New Zealand. And a bit of festive cheer Thank you,

Outside is a garden but I don't find much to see. Is that because of the season?
Inside is a very well maintained house from 100 years ago. One of the staffs will give you a short tour pointing out the interesting bits like the vacuum cleaner from a hundred years ago and a device to peel apples and that is very interesting. The entrance fee is five dollars and you can expect to spend 30-60min there.

Thank goodness this home has been preserved and well endowed with period artefacts. It's a good example of early European settlers homes and we had a lovely visit with a charming and knowledgable volunteer guide.
