Aston Norwood

Gardens 1995

Formerly known as Kaitoke Country Gardens …We have 14 acres of stunning, secret gardens for you to explore and enjoy, which are still lovingly and carefully maintained by original property owners Fiona & Mark Rammell. www.angardencentre.co.nz

Aston Norwood is the perfect place for your special event – Wedding, Engagement, Anniversary or Birthday. The gardens are unique with a garden maze, ponds and bridges and of course 400 cherry blossom trees in Spring.  The Kaitoke Regional Park is just down the road, home to Rivendell,  the famous site from Lord of the Rings http://www.gw.govt.nz/Rivendell/.

We are easy to find on State Highway 2 just before you head over the Remutaka Ranges. A perfect rest stop for coffee before and after the drive. The Wairarapa is also a great area to visit – we are the gateway on your entrance or exit.

Aston Norwood Café & Function Centre has recently benefitted from a change of ownership, bringing a fresh new approach to the café and function management.  We love hosting you, our guests, and aim to enhance your visit to our destination café and gardens with a friendly welcome and courteous service.
