  • "A very disappointing property that didn’t live up to the expectations and health and safety standards."

    The electrics were dangerous and we had to get out an electrician who removed a light after confirming that the wires were to thin and not up to standard and had started to melt and could of set fire. Our friend tried to put the electrics back on as asked by the agent before the electrician arrived and he got a nasty shock, then the amount of water coming into the building was disgusting it was dripping in bedrooms, extremely close to sockets, this was very dangerous. We had children in the property and this caused us lots of anxiety, totally ruined our stay and we couldn’t relax, the top landing was absolutely soaked underfoot and children could play and enjoy there break. Then another extremely bad accident happened, One of our friends children went to have a shower on the on suite bathroom and the shower glass door dropped of the hinges and onto him, luckily his dad was nearby to quickly help him, but he did have some serious injuries to his head and face. This door is extremely heavy and could of killed him. I do have all pictures and videos if needed. Outside the property is extremely unsafe and at night it’s dark and dangerous, no lighting and a small inflatable hot tub which nobody could access As it wasn’t safe underfoot, there is also an extremely loose manhole cover in the drive way and because it was not safe we had to take a slap and cover it over to keep everyone safe. This is not what is advised. We were told the property had been damaged by three storms and the damage was causing the rain and water running into the property. We couldn’t enjoy our break away as we found it very difficult to relax and unwind. Please contact me for further information. I will be contacting trading standards and seeking legal advice.could you please advise me on who they need to contact to discuss these issues. Thank you for your time
