Broadgreen historic house is a lovely little house that has a guide if you have any questions. The rose garden is massive and well kept. We have spent a lot of time lying on the grass relaxing with the smell of roses on the breeze. A must for garden lovers

The setting for this site is lovely, especially the rose gardens. The house is well presented, depicting a life style in rooms, displays and audio. This attraction is close to the WOW Museum and is a nice added stop.

I'm so pleased that we visited this lovely home. I'd recommend it to all, it's not a lengthy visit but well worth it. It's history is fascinating & being able to wander about from room to room seeing how they really lived in yesteryear was a treat. Beverley, our guide gave us an illuminating & personal insight into the family... More

This place is unfortunately not on most tourist's list when visiting Nelson, NZ. The historic house is on scenic grounds but its primary feature is a world class rose garden tended by a number of professional people. it is not to be missed.

This historic house is a must visit. The house is beautifully presented and the entrance fee is ridiculously cheap. The gardens around the house are filled with rose bushes of every hue. Amazing place. If you need to chose between Isel house and here, this would be our first choice.

This is a heritage house (mid 19th century) with period decorations and furnishings, most of which are original. Our guide was very friendly, showed us around and told us about the house, its history and anecdotes about the family who built it. Well worth a visit, and inexpensive. There is an amazing rose garden outside.

Took our older teenagers here today and well worth the few dollars. Our guide, Jenny was lovely and talked us through. Very welcoming. The rooms reminded me of the set up in Beamish Museum in North-East England. Lots of old equipment; a huge collection for a single property. Guides to the family who lived there helped you to picture the... More

What a lovely stop. Happy to make the small donation to support the house's upkeep. Very informative and interesting and lovely to see the house decked out for the festive season. Then there is the rose garden. Hundreds. A myriad of floral delights. Quirky names, colourful blooms. A gorgeous place to sit and be surrounded by a rose rainbow.
