Fodor's Review

Broadgreen is a fine example of a Victorian cob house. Cob houses, made from straw and horsehair bonded together with mud and clay, are common in Devon, the southern English home county of many of Nelson's pioneers. This 1855 house is furnished as it might have been in the 1850s, with a fine collection of textiles and quilts, including one of the oldest-known quilts in New Zealand. Even the volunteer staff get dressed in the period style. The backdrop of tall trees and

beautiful Samuel Rose Gardens completes the scene.
