Jenny was very helpful and accommodating in meeting our needs and beyond.
The cottage is very comfortable and charmingly decorated. It has everything you need in the way of home comforts.
It is close to a large New World supermarket and not far from the city. From the windows, there is a pleasant rural outlook, with walking tracks nearby and there is a private garden eating area at the front.
We would happily stay at Valley View Cottage when next we visit Christchurch.

This is a lovely cottage in a location which feels very secluded but is, in fact, only about ten minutes drive from the centre of Christchurch. It is very well equipped and the owner left us generous grocery supplies. We shall cherish such memories as the fantastic early morning views of the city and the mountains beyond, from the bedroom window, the sheep which wandered past each morning to graze just below the cottage and picking lemons straight from the tree outside the front door, for our evening gin and tonic on the patio.

Beautiful cottage, extremely well stocked pantry and fridge! Truly a home away from home, quiet - stunning hill views and gorgeously furnished home!
I am very much impressed, one of the best cottages I've lived in, comparable to a 5 star establishment! Many thanks for a truly wonderful experience, it was tucked away, cozy and great for a couples retreat and getaway, and plus the wifi and cable tv, dvds, books galore, the cottage just bids you to stay longer! Thank you!

Very professionally run and yet within minutes it feels like one's own home. We have since made a 3 month and a 4 month booking.
