We are Ken and Jenny Jordan, your hosts at Riverstone House bed and breakfast on The Downs Geraldine. We had one of the oldest nurseries in New Zealand, Ashburton, until we decided on a life style change as our sons were not interested in continuing the family business. We specialized in growing Rhododendrons and Camellia, with a very strong interest in growing hostas, trilliums, maples, tree peonies and of late, lilies. There are many examples of these in our new garden at Geraldine. For approx 8 years Jenny managed the Ashburton i-Site Visitor Centre. Jenny has her Level 4 in Tourism, Diploma in Business and Diploma in Tourism Management. In 2016 we purchased Riverstone House in Geraldine from the family of New Zealand’s champion rally driver Hayden Paddon. We have renovated and converted the home to bed and breakfast accommodation. With our extensive nursery history we are enjoying the large gardens and lawns and the native birds singing. Our home is made of river stone and timber is set on 1.5ha.(approx 3 acres) Our home overlooks our large NZ native garden with many rhododendrons and roses are in this setting. We have a Jack Russell Dog,Meg & a British Shorthair cat Coco
