A beautiful old house

Loved the gardens around this house. It is right next door to the zoo. Artists have some interesting work for sale in the house itself.

A surprise inside - weekends!

Visitors who want to take away a souvenir of New Plymouth that is a true reflection of the Artists here will be so delighted to see the artworks on sale. Open weekends for all to see. Just being inside the wonderful old homestead is special! Check times for opening. This isnt the only treat just there - the Chinese Pavilion, built and designed by Chinese designers brought from China.

Full of history, beautiful surroundings, but not very big...

The Gables was used as an asyllum (a fact not commonly talked about) and then a more general hospital. It oozes history (and one could imagine the spirits of those who died in it climbing the steep staircase - I do not envy the nurse having to carry a full bedpan from the room above!), and now houses displays of old surgical instruments and is the home of displays of the art of local artists which is for sale. It is nestled in the grounds of Brooklands Park - near the Zoo, so can easily be incorporated into a larger experience. The grounds are kept beautifully, and there is a lovely herb garden worth viewing if you have an interest in gardens
