The house and gardens at our 25-acre Te Horo property, Springfield, are often the venue for memorable events, as guests appreciate the gracious relaxed atmosphere.

The 1910 restored colonial homestead is set in a 2-acre garden with sweeping lawns, established trees and a pretty stream. It is an ideal and select venue for private lunches and dinners, conference partner programmes and weddings. Comfortably seating up to 40 guests inside, plus an enclosed verandah protected from the weather which is ideal for pre-dinner drinks. 

A favourite ceremony venue, the charming small church of St Margarets is conveniently situated at the foot of Springfield’s drive. Laden with spring roses, this creates a lovely bridal walk to the wedding celebration.

Because you have exclusive access to Springfield as a client, you can plan your event around the whole facility – inside and outside. Maybe drinks on the lawn, lunch on the verandah, and dinner in front of the fire?

The homestead's spacious country-style kitchen is a friendly place for small groups to eat, or for ‘hands-on' cooking classes

Our sustainable kitchen garden is essential for us, supplying our own regular salad leaves and herbs for our chefs.
