Staying at Eliza's was a treat from start to finish, from the moment we walked in we were surprised at the added extras that our host Wendy had included to make our stay so relaxing and special. The breakfast supplied was scrumptious, especially the bread that Wendy made herself! The best part is the meticulously taken care of cottage garden...

Management response:

Thank you Teri!

She made sure we had plenty of breakfast provisions, especially since we were arriving late and might not want to go to the shops before bed! We had fresh eggs, fresh bread; everything! Two friends and I stayed a couple of nights,...

Management response:

Thank you Kim! I don't get many Trip Advisor reviews unless I ask for them and I hate doing that so any review is now self motivated and that makes each one extra special. I'm glad you enjoyed the summer face of Eliza's and hope you'll be back with us soon. W xxx
