Villa Walton Gardens

Villa Walton is set in the quiet historic village of Walton in Matamata, part of the beautiful Waikato.

Garden Tours

The villa has been an integral part of the village since 1904 when a family who farmed on the property built it.

The Villa now operates as an elegant and relaxing accommodation, function venue and offers extensive garden tours that can include a tour inside the original homestead.  Farm tours can be arranged off site.

The homestead

The original homestead was known in the area for the beautiful cottage gardens and specimen trees. 

There are some examples of a hundred plus year old Kauri, Copper Beech, Rimu, Totara and magnificent magnolia trees which the Tui love to visit.

The garden Blooms each season with an array of different Trees, Bulbs and Shrubs. During its history, there have been many families live in the villa with each generation adding their love and attention to the garden and property.
