About Couldrey House & Garden

Couldrey House is an historic Victorian-Edwardian family home set in a beautiful garden within Wenderholm Regional Park. A mere 40-minute drive north of Aucklands CBD, this gracious colonial house sits between Wenderholm Beach and the Puhoi river (each a few minutes walk away through pohutukawa glades) or less than a 1 kilometre drive from Waiwera and its famous hot pools.

Fully furnished in a mixture of styles reflecting the eras and preoccupations of some notable past owners, the two storey house has nine rooms on display. Visitors are warmly welcomed by one of our volunteer hosts who can provide commentary if requested or alternatively leave you to discover the historic house and grounds at your leisure. Throughout the house there are audio reminiscences about the families that lived here, direct from their descendants.

Enjoy some sea air mixed with the fragrance of fresh flowers from the cottage-style garden, familiar (and less familiar) objects from the past, and the old worldliness of an historic house where you least expect to find it.

Couldrey House is also available as an unforgettable and intimate venue for wedding ceremonies, celebrations, workshops and more.
