I don’t know where to begin! Our experience and the way we were treated was beyond awful.. I am 8 months pregnant so could not go abroad this year me and my husband thought a cottage in the Isle of Wight would be ideal with our two small children. The cottage itself is set in a lovely location, once inside though the bubble quickly bursts. I will start with the smaller issues first: When you enter the smell of damp immediately hits you the children’s game room I assume was one that was worst affected by some sort of flood as it smells the most. . The furniture is old and very worn in every room apart from the dinning room . The plumbing is clearly on the way out and out of all the showers in the house only two worked properly. Only one cramped toilet downstairs, on the outside the pond was overgrown and unkept lots of sharp hills going downwards with a very small fence going all the way round in my opinion breaking some sort of health and safety law. All these things I was willing to live with, even though it was obvious the prices they were charging didn’t reflect the quality of the house. It is worth mentioning that the property is listed with many different sights all with different prices.. On our second nigh the house alarm started going off every 10 minutes or every half hour and so on until 9am the next day. You can imagine the distress this caused to us and our small children. We rung all the numbers provided although we had to ring these numbers through Skype as the house was in the middle of nowhere. Literally no signal for at least a mile and the owner had not even installed a landline! The house is in such a wild area of land that the fact there is no landline inside in case there is an accident is beyond belief. My husband did not want to take the car out in the middle of the night and up the road as its difficult enough to see in the day, the road leading up to the house is horrendous only big cars such as range rovers can cope with all the potholes. One of the numbers given in there” in case of emergency numbers” was for a B&B up the road the only other house in the area. We rung this number at 10pm as all the other numbers had not worked offices were closed and night porters phone was off we had to ring him once before as they had forgotten to bring us a travel cot for our daughter. We were greeted by a very rude man who was shocked that the manager of the house we were staying in had given them as an emergency contact how was this o
