Wendelton is another great reason to visit Eyebright when you’re in Nelson. It is our gorgeous and unique Guinea Pig Village, complete with a wonderful array of silky and fluffy haired Guinea Pigs of all colours and ages, including adorable babies. Wendelton is a miniature Village like none other. The buildings are the cutest you’ve ever seen, with authentic European styling, there’s even a castle (modelled on Germany’s famous Neuschwanstein castle), an alpine house with flowering window boxes, a bakery, hair and beauty salon, right through to a very authentic kiwi Marae.
