If you enjoy staying close to the waters, surrounded by a great garden, and in good company, this is the place as a getaway from the city, close to Lyttelton , a charming cottage, comfy and secluded. Wish to stay there again.
A very special, truly beautiful and tranquil cottage with a lovely view across the bay, gorgeous gardens and birdsong; what a wonderful place to relax and unwind! From the moment we stepped through the door we felt at home, and the studio has a really friendly, warm feel along with absolutely everything we required - the pretty fresh flowers was a much appreciated finishing touch. We enjoyed stunning waterfront walks around the bay, also the stroll to the superb local cafe (highly recommend this!). Thank you so much Rosie and Mark for a really wonderful and memorable stay. Our very best wishes to you both, Rosie and Chris
