Employees Stories

Name and Role: Seb Milton, Property Supervisor For Red Hotels.

I joined Red Hotels in: 2012 as a Wild Café Restaurant Host

And now: in September 2018 I became the Property Manager For Red Hotels.

My Journey with Red Hotels: Working for Red Hotels has been interesting; after Restaurant Host at Bedruthan, I was an Outdoor Host at Scarlet then joined the Property Team as a Maintenance Assistant working my way up to Supervisor and now Manager . The job is very challenging and extremely fulfilling. The best part of my job is definitely its variety. One moment I can be in the middle of a busy and extremely hot kitchen, fault finding and fixing a broken oven, and the next I can be working on the outdoor hot tubs in the sunshine overlooking the amazing surf on Mawgan Porth beach. 

Passions and Pleasures: Surfing and exploring the coastline with my wife, daughter and dogs.

Seb Milton

Name and Role: Jennie Woodcock, House Manager, Scarlet

I joined Red Hotels in: March 2014 as a Restaurant Host.

And now: I am House Manager for the Scarlet.

Passions and Pleasures: Being adventurous, I enjoy encouraging our guests to explore the coastline. I love the outdoors and feel especially lucky to be able to work somewhere so connected with the coast; I get to see that beautiful horizon every day. I am part of a fantastic team who are all passionate about what we deliver here at the Scarlet.

My Journey with Red Hotels: I first joined the Scarlet as a Restaurant Host so that I was able to pursue my own interests alongside my day to day job. I quickly realised that the Scarlet is a refreshingly different company to work for and found myself welcomed into a creative and passionate team. I was soon a Supervisor and then went on to create and develop a new role as a ‘Wine Specialist’. I was enabled and encouraged to follow my passion for wine and to help bring this to the forefront of our offering to our guests here at the Scarlet. This in turn led to me taking over management of the restaurant and all food and beverage service in the hotel as Food & Beverage Service Manager in the spring of 2015.

In December 2016, I left the Scarlet on maternity leave for 9 months to have my first child. I decided that I would need to return in a part time role and was welcomed back in the role of House Manager. It was so easy to return to work in such a welcoming and encouraging environment and the amount of guest interaction I can continue to have as House Manager is one of the favourite aspects of my job. I love being inspired and inspiring others in turn and I have great visions for the Scarlet in the future.

Name and Role: Rosie Burt, Assistant Gardener

I joined Red Hotels in: April 2015 as a Restaurant Host at The Scarlet.

And now: I work in the Gardening sub-team of the Property Team for Bedruthan and Scarlet.

Passions and Pleasures: Wild swimming, running and Pilates.

My Journey with Red Hotels: I began working as a Restaurant Host whilst I was studying horticulture at college. I met lots of great people, gained knowledge on food and wine and Restaurant Management were very flexible in allowing me to work around my studies. I also did one shift a week working in the Scarlet kitchen doing food preparation and basic cooking where I learnt many new skills.

I wanted to gain some experience in my chosen field (excuse the pun!), so I asked if there was a possibility to volunteer with the gardening team at the hotels. Management followed this up quickly and organised it all for me. I loved the work in both gardens and found it varied and interesting and, soon after I had started volunteering, I was offered one day a week, paid work. By summer 2016, I was working two days in the garden where I continued to gain more experience, knowledge and confidence.

I was delighted in early 2017 when I became a full time member of the gardening team. Red Hotels are very passionate about sustainability and being kind to the environment, which is something that is important to me and part of the attraction of working for them. They have always provided me with opportunities and encouraged me, which I’m extremely grateful for. The views are fantastic and the people are even better. I feel very lucky to work here.
