Home away from home. Warm and cosy on a cold Autumn's day. A delightful place to stay. Robyn is so welcoming and has a heart of gold. You never want to leave this lovely, peaceful place. Everything you need is right here. The shops and train station are close by and Robyn provides everything you need plus more! We will be back again next year!

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed as a couple in Magical Manderley late August 2020, and were lucky enough to see snow falling over Leura from our lovely Treetops apartment. We are frequent visitors to Leura, and having stayed in many different locations over the years, would rate Magical Manderley as our favourite. The uniqueness, style, nostalgic themes of a bygone era are all interwoven into the taste of the beautiful property. Our first impression was the classical garden which spoke of utmost joy with its impressionistic portrayal of Roman and Tuscan features. Moving into our Treetops apartment, we were so happy to be staying in such a lovely abode, which was an apartment as comfortable as home. The furnishings were all tastefully selected, gorgeous linen in the bedroom and sumptuous bath towels and robes for that luxurious feel. The kitchen was amazing, most generously stocked for a good hearty breakfast and afternoon tea. The living room was just lovely, facing north embracing the sunlight. As we were there on a very cold weekend, we enjoyed staying in Treetops relaxing in that lovely living room with the fire gas heater on. Never a dull moment as the living room was filled with interesting books, magazines, DVDs, and a relaxing collection of CDs. We spent our Sunday afternoon watching “Rebecca”, and were totally mesmerised by the story as Magical Manderley was inspired by the grand house from that classic story. Thank you Robyn for making our stay so unique. We cannot wait to return in the Spring. COVID has made 2020 a tough year for us all, our little trip to Magical Manderley has done wonders for us.

Dear Tracy, It was such a delight to meet you both and welcome you to Manderley, Thank you for your wonderful Review and lovely comments. We very much appreciate you taking the time to describe Treetops so beautifully and are always so pleased to hear our guests enjoy the romantic gas log fire and Hydro 2-person spa together with English spa products and toiletries, When restoring Manderley in 2000, we chose a rather Tuscan style, especially with the gardens and grounds. Always very happy to present little complimentary extras for our guests to enjoy on their arrival. The classic dvd 'Rebecca' is a great choice for a relaxing afternoon. In these difficult and worrying times, delighted to hear you enjoyed you stay at Manderley. Take care and looking forward to seeing you again and welcoming you back in November. Our sincere thanks and appreciation. Regards, Robyn

Really delightful self contained suite (Treetops). Well furnished with a gas fire that looks like a real log fire - but less work & warmer! Robyn Piddington, the owner, can't do enough for you but is never intrusive Short walk to Leura shops Excellent provisions for breakfast & you could self cater

Our stay in the Treetops Suite was a real treat - all we needed (and more) was there, and we enjoyed the decor as well. Leura is a beautiful spot, and Manderay very close to the interesting shops in the Leura Mall. Agree with Roger C - Robyn a most gracious and welcoming host. We will be back!
