Eliza's Garden Cottage - Luxury Vineyard Cottage

 Wonderful cottage with everything to make it a real home away from home. Our boys loved the pool, the huge lawn and all the outdoor toys they could wish for. Wendy (& her team of behind the scenes ladies) made us feel most welcome and provided us with tips of where to go to make the most of our time in the Bleinham area as well as daily newspaper & delicious breakfast supplies. Thank you and we highly recommend Eliza's cottage and hope to return ourselves one day.
