St. Leonards Vineyard Cottages Review

With five different levels of accommodations dotted around a leafy garden and surrounded by vineyard this rural retreat and former farm has something for everyone. Set around a farm homestead, each accommodation occupies an old farm building, hence names like the Dairy, the Stable, and the Woolshed (with its own outside bath). Each is furnished in comfortable rural style with private outdoor spaces and verdant views. This is a great place for kids. There's a solar heated pool, tennis court, petanque, and free guest bikes.
