Broadoak is a functioning family lifestyle block complete with an orchard, potting shed and large
potager vegetable garden that produces food for the owners family the whole year through – not
forgetting the 300 hazelnut trees, beehive, and resident chickens!
Visitors entering Broadoak from the roadside are guided through expansive rose arches and topiary border hedging through to the large home garden area. Leading off here and from a small car park at the centre of Broadoak is a 2-acre formal wedding garden. Developed from a commercial peony paddock in 2014, the entire area is enclosed by a 3-metre-high wall of hedging between twenty brick pillars adorned by gargoyles giving the feel of a walled garden.
Set out in three garden rooms, the first contains formal beds created in the traditional English style with a variety of shrubs and perennials, bordered by low hedging, topiary and pathways that lead to central water fountains. Walkthrough a gatehouse to the second room featuring knot gardens with a sunken native plant area at one end and a super-size chess board and pieces at the other. You will notice the two beautiful peacock artworks by a local artist.
Broadoak is open by appointment only so please call first. Allow 1.5 -2 hours for your visit.
