About the neighborhood
Eliza's is in Grovetown, a small farming settlement 5 minutes north of Blenheim on State Highway 1. The surrounding farms are a mix of grapes, sheep, crops ; sweetcorn, baby beans and peas, a pear orchard and a commercial field of peonies. There is no public transport but taxis are readily available. The cottage has endless parking - for boats, trailers, camper vans etc. There is ample space for walks on the farm and an excellent route on quiet country roads for running and bike riding.
