Ribblesdale Gardens Cottage is a self-contained property 1km east of Oxford rural township situated on the Inland Scenic Route 72. We are located 45 minutes from Christchurch Airport. Oxford is a rural township with bush walks and biking opportunities. We have lovely cafes, clothing shops, an antique shop, pharmacy, fabulous gift/book shop and a farmers market on Sundays. It is a lovely community which I am very proud of.

The garden will surprise and enchant you - since 1980 it has been transformed into a succession of surprises as you move from one landscaped area to the next.

Beautiful at all times, the gardens are breathtaking in spring. Friendly fantails follow you around while you chance upon a host of gardens. The variety of textures and colours is endless. Friendly fantails follow you around while you will chance upon a fragrant garden, hosta haven, secret garden, stumpery, native garden, moonlight garden, butterfly house, magnificent azalea and rhododendron garden, woodland garden and parkland. The variety of textures and colours is endless.
