Lovely cottage. The outside living and cooking BBQ area made the holiday very relaxing. Special place. Everything you need. Great privacy away from other holiday makers and only 5 mins by car to beach. We enjoyed the lovely surrounding walks , stream and bush. Very comfortable and clean property. Great to have towels and linen included.
Ellenglaze is a lovely secluded cosy bach, so peaceful and quiet and relaxing set in lovely gardens. I enjoyed the stream walk very much. Great to get away from the hum drum of the crowds, only visitor was a lone possum peering in at the door! :) The beach at Sandy Bay is just down the road and an easy walk. Good to know it is there for any future holidays! :) Thanks Jeff :)
Beautiful tranquil bush setting, truly feels away from it all! Only sounds are birds by day and moreporks by night. The cottage was immaculately clean and tidy and compact. There are two marked trails we and our two young boys enjoyed exploring. The honey from their hives was a lovely touch for our toast in the mornings! A real traditional relaxing holiday experience. Thank you!
