    “Lovely cottage but a bit disappointed with wifi which was non-existent although advertised as having broadband.”

    Important to us as we work from home and needed to be able to access it but couldn’t.

    Thank you for your feedback, I am glad you enjoyed your stay at The Old Chapel. The WiFi has been checked and is working fine. At times, in the lake district the WiFi can be slightly intermittent. Thank you for your feedback. - Sykes owner relations
