    “Whilst the actual cottage was a good size, we had a lot of issues, to start with we tried to get wi-if which the listing says it has and when we couldn't login into it I asked the owner and I was informed that Willow is the worst cottage for logging in to internet but if I stand by the back door in the kitchen I should be able to pick it up!”

    ! ...

    ! I needed wi-if in the bedroom during the night for our home alarm notifications had it gone off whilst we were away. The did eventually allow us to pick up her own personal wi-if on my mobile phone however we were told the next day it was now working and when I asked about allowing me to have it for my iPad as we needed to look up places to visit in the area. It was working but it was again only if I sat in the kitchen at the corner of the table by the door that I could pick up a signal! The day before we were due to leave we saw someone fitting what looked like boosters to the cottages, which was a little late for us. With regards to the comfort of the cottage no where was comfortable This was lacking in the bedroom and sitting room as the bed well mattress was so soft (worn out) that when I sat on the bed I could feel the base, it was shear luck that I brought a throw in the car so I put that folded on the sheet on top of the mattress however it still didn't completely make it comfortable and I didn't sleep very well for the 6nights stay. It didn't help as the two sofas were so low as the cushions/bases were very worn out and you sank down so low, So these too could do with replacing. I put one seat cushion on top of another and a pillow on this but still it slumped down very low! The shower was a big issue as it too is quite old and needs updating or a real power clean. Jets useless apart from the water pressure not working and water just trickled out at the bottom of the shower head the actual fitting for the shower head had been put on the wrong side of the rail so it was almost against the wall, my husband changed it round but it still was not any good and as I have long hair I couldn't wash my hair all week. I couldn't shower either so ended up having to strip wash. We should have asked the owners about these issues but you felt they were not involved with running the place as it was done via another company Acorn Cottages which we did not know this at the time of booking. Also to suggest an idea that might make the sitting room a bit more appealing re the boiler In the corner on the wall, maybe this would be much more appealing if it was built into a cupboard instead of being on show!!
