About Tim Seymour & Paula Stitch

Hi, we are Tim & Paula. We currently live on the outskirts of Guildford in Surrey and both work in the Leisure industry, coaching tennis and in Paula's case Zumba too!!

Although now living in Surrey, Paula grew up and spent most of her life in Somerset and has family in and around the villages local to our cottage and still has a very close attachment to the area, we're very frequent visitors to the area, much more so since we've spent time renovating the cottage which has now become our 'home from home'

In our spare time we love to travel and see as many different countries as we can and we appreciate finding tranquil and friendly places to kick back, relax and unwind and we hope we have created this environment at Peggy's Place.

Tim Seymour & Paula Stitch purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Tim Seymour & Paula Stitch chose Sedgemoor

The cottage originally belonged to Paula's late 'auntie Peggy', hence our affectionate name for Leigh Cottage.

The cottage was left to Paula and her brothers and in 2012 following Peggy's passing we decided to buy out the cottage. It has since been a labour of love renovating it and we hope that those who choose to stay with us will love it as much as we do.

The cottage is in the pretty village of Brent Knoll, just 5 minutes off the M5 and easily accessible from all areas. It's just 2 doors down from the popular Red Cow pub, which serves excellent food and drinks. it also has great walks right from the front door.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is very conveniently located for exploring all the attractions in and around Somerset and the South West including the Cheddar Gorge, Wooky Hole, Weston Super Mare, Wells and is only 30 minutes from Bristol and an hour from Bath.

The cottage itself has been fully refurbished to a high standard, offering everything you could wish for in a home away from home. With a large living room, comfy sofa and plenty of space to relax. The kitchen and utility have all the 'mod-cons' you could wish for including a range cooker and dishwasher.

The bedrooms are light, airy and well appointed with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. The newly fitted upstairs bathroom and downstairs shower room also ensures that they'll be no need to fight for the bathroom!!

Really lovely cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at Peggy's Place. It's in a great location (two doors down from a decent pub, and within short driving distance of the coast and the Mendips) and it was a really lovely place to stay.

Really lovely.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend at Peggy's Place and it was great. The house is comfortable and well-equipped, very clean and modern with a beautifully kept garden. The location is great, being so close to the M5, but is surprisingly rural - the view from upstairs has sheep on the hill and a pony in the field!

I really cannot fault this accommodation in any small way. Tim's communication was excellent - he is a very helpful and considerate host.
