  • "Great property in a perfect location, right next to the park and the shop."

    Bed really comfy and garden perfect for a small dog. Shower powerful and lovely. Hopefully the water damage in the main bedroom will be resolved as when it rained the wall became very damp. Would recommend.

    Thanks so much for the lovely feedback, Penny! Yes we are working our socks off to resolve the leak! Glad to hear you had a lovely time despite it! Property Owner

  • "We booked Redwod for a friend's weekend away."

    The cottage is beautiful and in a lovely location along a quiet lane. Parking was easy to find and very close by. The cottage is comfortable and well equipped. We really enjoyed lighting the log burner for a cosy evening in following a very wet walk in the Mendips! In better weather we would have made use of the lovely garden.I would say that for 4 adults the sleeping arrangements are snug but fine for a weekend (also, there were only 3 dining chairs). The beds are very comfortable and the lounge is lovely. Blagdon is a pretty village. We made use of the map in the cottage to plot a walk over the hills to the Plume of Feathers in Rickford for lunch by the roaring log fire ( highly recommended). Great communication from Lucy the owner about an issue that didn't actually affect us at all. All in all a great weekend and we would definitely book again.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage."

    Very well provisioned and very comfortable. Which was a good job as the weather was awful and we spent more time, than intended, in the cottage. It was great to have a dog walk on the door step. The Thai restaurant is definitely worth a visit as was the Seymour. We are going back in the Summer.

  • "Very comfortable stay."

    Beautifully equipped kitchen. Fantastic mattresses on the beds. Quiet and peaceful. The cottage does need a bit of attention ( some damp upstairs) but we found it cosy and homely. Pretty village. The shop next door is handy and open 8 till 8.

  • "Very spacious with a well-appointed kitchen."

    Our first job there was to buy some toilet paper - luckily the shop is only about 20 yards away. This was just an unfortunate oversight. The evidence of a leaking roof in the main bedroom was a bit disconcerting! We had a great week - the cottage is well situated for exploring the Mendip Hills.

    Village green is very handy for dog walking views from there towards the lake and from New Inn beer garden are beautiful. Redwood cottage is well furnished and really comfortable. The garden is lovely some cutting back and lawn mowing would have made it even better. Would definitely stay again both for the property and the surrounding area.

  • "Once again a lovely stay at the cottage - our second."

    Very comfortable and clean. The only drawback is the parking in the very busy village. Local facilities are very good with the village shop almost next door for essentials and the area is ideal for walkers. The garden is an added bonus in good weather. There was an excellent welcome pack the first time we visited. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

    Well equipped kitchen; dishwasher, washing machine, fridge and freezer. Comfortable beds. Very powerful shower over a bath. Constant hot water. Quiet location in a narrow lane just off the High Street. There is no parking immediately outside the property but you can park outside for loading and unloading but then you have to move your car to one of several options that are only 1 or 2 minutes walk away - check which is the best option with the owner, who is extremely helpful and answers any questions immediately. Lovely walks from the front door through open fields and lanes around the village and down to the reservoir. We enjoyed some fruit from the community orchard where villagers can pick freely!

  • "We had an amazing time in Redwood cottage."

    It was clean, very spacious and had everything we could ask for. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well equiped. The huge garden is bonus, but the large Mead is just a few meters away. Parking in front of the cottage is not possible, unless for loading/unloading. However, a large free car park is nearby. Owner Lucy made sure she could be easily contacted when needed and made sure we didn’t miss out on anything. Blagdon is a nice town to stay, it’s in a lovely area. Plenty to do in the area, with Bristol, Bath, Wells, Weston or Wales at a short distance. We would not hesitate to stay in Redwood Cottage again.

    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.

  • "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

    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.

The property

Tucked away in the village of Blagdon, Bristol lies Redwood Cottage, a charming two-bedroom cottage ideal for a small family or group of friends.

Set on the edge of the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and boasting a beautiful enclosed rear garden framed with pretty shrubbery, this property is the ideal base for exploring the local area.

On entering, the kitchen/diner offers all the amenities to cater to your needs throughout your stay, including a microwave, an electric oven and an ceramic hob, all fully integrated for a sleek finish.

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.

Guests will also benefit from a bathroom fit with a bath, where you can relax and unwind with a good book after a long day of exploring your surroundings, along with a shower over, a basin and a WC, so the whole group can freshen up ahead of a day of adventures.

Take advantage of the gorgeous lawn garden at this dwelling; lined with delicate shrubbery and surrounded by greenery, the garden is an ideal spot for your canine companion to stretch their legs as you enjoy your morning coffee at the garden table which is tucked away at the bottom of the lawn.

Doorstep walks from the property bring you to a couple of shops and pubs within the village; The New Inn is a traditional country pub with a garden and views of the nearby lake, while further afield you can find an array of pubs, restaurants and cafés to save you from cooking after a tiresome day of walking.

Local attractions include Bristol Zoo Gardens, popular with all ages for its many exotic species and peaceful gardens.

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.

Continuing with the adventurous routes, spend the day at Cheddar Gorge, exploring their caves and using your skills in the escape rooms at the site, it is sure to be a fun-filled day out for all.
