Beautiful Victorian house with lovely garden (rododendrons), very cosy bedroom, and perfectly served breakfast ( eggs, bacon, toast, marmelade, granola, fresh fruits and juices ) in the ' Laura Ashley-style living room. Friendly host ! Perfect location to explore Christchurch city and botanical garden nearby.
