  • "A cosy peaceful cottage with comfortable beds and everything we needed for our week’s stay."

    I particularly liked sitting on the chairs at the end of the garden with the morning papers and a coffee. The shop next door is very handy and the walk turning right out of the cottage is beautiful. Good communication with the owner too…thank you Lucy for a lovely stay.

    So glad you had such a happy time at the cottage! Thank you so much for your kind feedback. Come back soon! Lucy Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very clean and the rooms were all spacious."

    It was very well equipped (particularly the kitchen). The garden is spacious and private. We were very fortunate with the weather and were able to make use of the many excellent walks and pubs in the area. It is an excellent two bedroom cottage.

  • "First of all the cottage is stunning and very well decorated and kitted out ..."

    First of all the cottage is stunning and very well decorated and kitted out sadly for us it was not cleaned properly and we found we had a bin with a dirty nappy in and and had to remove it ourselves the parking was a big issue for us very tight roads but a beautiful area enjoyed our stay the Neighbours were very friendly and helpful

    Dear Sir, thank you so much for the feedback and your kind comments. I am so sorry that the cleaning was not up to an acceptable standard for your arrival. I have worked with the team since to ensure that the job is done perfectly every time. Regarding parking and the narrow roads, it is indeed very rural near to the cottage, but we find that the closeness of the nearby public car park is extremely handy and guests will never find themselves without a space. Thanks again and I do hope you’ll return one day. Lucy Property Owner

  • "We loved the property and so did our dog."

    The garden was large and very secure, and there was a fantastic playing field leading on to longer walks right outside the property. There were two very nice dog friendly pubs serving nice meals, all within walking distance.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Redwood cottage, however was very disappointed in the back garden, although of a good size, was uphill and very uneven, so was restricted to a very small sitting out space, near the bins, not pleasant."

    We found out when we arrived there is NO overnight parking near the cottage, we were very lucky the manager at the Seymour arms allowed us to park on their car park. Space to unload at the cottage was very restricted too as residents park their cars in the very tight lane.

    Dear Mr Prescott, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review and for the helpful feedback. I know from our communication during your stay that your experience was positive but it's always good to hear about how things can be improved, too. Regarding the garden, I am so sorry that you found yourselves sitting by the bins! The seating area at the top of the garden is indeed considerably more pleasant. We do think that the photos shown give an accurate portrayal of what the garden is like, but I appreciate that the slight incline might be problematic for some. Parking is on-street, as described in the property description, so I am really sorry that you weren't able to find a place on the high-street next to the cottage. However I am glad you were able to improvise and that the locals were accommodating. Thank you again for the feedback and I do hope you'll return one day. Very best, Lucy Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, immaculately clean and ready for our arrival, set in the gorgeous village of Blagdon."

    Lots of places to walk the dog without getting in a car, and the locals all stopped for a chat and told us the best places to visit. Our German shepherd loved the garden, and the slope meant he had plenty of exercise running up and down it. The cottage is well equipped with games, extra throws, and sufficient kitchen equipment for the meals at home, but there are also plenty of places around to eat out. The local store next door was an added bonus for re-fill milk, warm croissants, and all the basics. With a large vehicle, we parked in the village car park, which despite having no overnight parking signs up, we had no problems with. Will definitely try and return soon to explore the area more, and get to the Yeo valley gardens next time.

Once the budding chef of the group has whipped up a delicious meal, sit down as a group at the dining table to catch up on the days events before moving through the property and into the sitting room.

The warming woodburning stove fills the group with a gentle amber glow, welcoming you to rest your feet and flick on the TV as you snuggle up on the plush sofas.

When sleep calls, climb the stairs to the first floor, home to a double room and a single room with an additional trundle bed for a flexible sleeping arrangement throughout your stay.

For an action-packed day out for the energetic members of the group, Wookey Hole is just a short and scenic drive from the cottage, home to stunning caves, a museum and other attractions for the whole family.
