The set-up

We have four yurts, a tipi and house truck - providing accommodation for up to 15 people. And you can also bring one or two tents of your own.

We have a Garden Kitchen surrounded by pick-your-own herbs, a 6m x 12m marquee, an art room and a garden banquet table. All our accommodations are furnished and have comfortable beds. We supply linen and towels. 

The idea

Okuti Garden is a gathering place. We have set out to create lovely spaces for you to use for celebrating, learning, relaxing and playing. We are very flexible, allowing you to use different features in different ways.

The Garden is designed to be both productive and beautiful. Living structures, gazebos and tree circles create a magical feel to the place.  It's all about atmosphere.

We love having weddings at Okuti.  We can offer an informal venue for a small DIY mini-festival type of wedding. The whole place will be yours for at least two days, giving you time to settle in, relax and do your own preparation and decorating.

The maximum number of people at a ceremony and reception is 60. The maximum number staying over night is 15.
