  • “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.

    - Mr Prescott, July 2021

    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 - Sykes owner relations
