The Gardens At Edenhouse
Edenhouse is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, even by New Zealand standards. Nestled in the stunning Orinoco Valley, its extensive gardens are the “creation” of Peter and Bobbie Martin. The lodge and gardens commenced life in 2003 when the Martin’s returned to Bobbie’s native New Zealand after living overseas for many years.
The bare land of 50 acres was perfect for Bobbie’s vision to create her own piece of paradise. Whilst living in London, she studied at The Inchbald School of Design, Belgravia, followed by The English Gardening School, situated at The Chelsea Physic Garden. She then established her own interior and garden design company, located in Knightsbridge and West Sussex, where she practiced for 15 years.
The effortless link between the lodge and gardens also incorporates the wider landscape. The grounds continue to evolve and have become a favourite habitat for native birds, as well as pheasant and quail.
