“Wonderful peaceful getaway”
Reviewed 25 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

A lovely gem of a cottage, this converted barn is exactly as described. The countryside around is great for walking. There’s a village pub in easy walking distance. The barn itself is clean and warm. It felt like a home from home immediately. There’s everything you would need, even a small dishwasher. Richard and Lisa certainly know how to make feel feel at home. There’s so much to do locally, we were spoilt for choice. We eventually ; went for a circular walk, went for a mooch around Bruton and ended our weekend with a Sunday lunch at the Bell in Evercreech . If you decide to do go to The Bell for Sunday lunch it’s probably best to book.

“Great Cottage and Location”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This cottage was lovely!
I was a little worried as there isn’t many reviews and the booking was made direct with the owner.
I shouldn’t of worried at all, we pulled up to be greeted with Alpacas in the field next to the garden (our 2.5yr old LOVED them!) and a beautiful little cottage with shortbread biscuits and cups of tea!

The cottage was clean and perfectly suited to children with games, puzzles and toys, also bed guard, stair gate and children’s design on the bedding.

We stayed for 2 nights and visited Longleat safari which is half hour drive away, we also had a dinner in a local pub in Evercreech, food was lovely and the staff were welcoming.

The only negative we could find was the road the runs along side was occasionally noisy, it’s a country lane but seems reasonably busy, but that isn’t the fault of the cottage or owners!

Otherwise everything was lovely and we were very happy with our stay.

Thank you so much for your review. We are just glad that you enjoyed your stay at Red Tiles and love it when people have a good time there. It is unfortunate about the road but hopefully outside of commuting hours and especially at night it wasn't too bad. The alpacas are still there and still very inquisitive!

“Great value for a peaceful getaway.”
Reviewed 4 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

A lovely restored barn in the peace and quiet countryside. An excellent welcome of tea, mince pies and homemade brandy butter. Clean, well equipped and cosy barn with great views and peace surrounding you.
Walks on your doorstep. Easy to reach attractions nearby.
We enjoyed good family fun with board games, family dvds, walks and a trip to a local pub.
Will visit again.

“Relaxing Weekend Break”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017
3
people found this review helpful

What a wonderful cottage, in what seemed a remote location but only a short walk from the local village. The cleanliness was second to none and like other comments the biscuits were very welcome. The only negative (if you could call it that) was the shower. It worked ok but was a bit lacking in power. I would happily recommend this cottage.

Thank you so much for your positive review. We are glad you enjoyed staying at Red Tiles. We would love to fit a more powerful shower but it isn't possible at the moment. Hopefully it didn't detract from your stay at Red Tiles and we look forward to welcoming you there again.

“Just stunning :) ”
Reviewed 10 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Stayed for 3 nights beginning of April '17 and our family loved all our time there.
Arrived to a tin of shortbread and the tea tray ready with milk in the fridge, perfect after travelling aswell as heating on in the twin room to take chill off. So much thought for guests, everything you could think of from toys, books and dvds to shower gel, cleaning products and a bed guard for little ones.
So peaceful with beautiful scenery all around, in the info pack we followed the walk around the barn and enjoyed the views from across the farms.
The children enjoyed swing ball and bowls in the garden although would of been easier if grass had been cut as kept losing the ball!
Very handy having all child accessories such as stair gate and highchair. Also a real luxury of a dishwasher!
Only suggestion is perhaps some darker curtains in twin room or black out blind as it gets very light quite early.
Hope to have a return visit in the future
:)

Thank you for your kind review Natasha. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Red Tiles and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again. We will certainly look into putting a black out blind in the twin room. We have pegged up blankets in there for our children in the past.

Thank you for your lovely review Jan. We are so glad that you found your stay at Red Tiles to be such a good experience.
Thank you for mentioning also the shops and pubs in Evercreech village nearby. When we have the opportunity for an occasional stay ourselves I always enjoy walking across the fields in the morning to the bakery for some fresh bread and pastries.

For us this was the perfect holiday. Beautiful scenery and a quiet, picturesque location. The Barn itself is comfortable, well equipped and felt like a surrogate home to come back to at the end of the day. I would certainly recommend it to anyone.
