We really liked the cottage location, but it was a pity it didn't have the mobile reception or wifi advertised.
And cottage itself was a little tired - peeling wall paper etc
Teh onwer will be very pleased that you enjoyed your holiday.  The details for wifi and moblile will be updated, mobile signal in rural areas is still sometimes patchy.

Beautiful cottage, comfortable and extremely clean. Stunning location. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there is no phone reception or 4G.
Great review, the owners will be very pleased to hear that you liked the cottage.  Wifi and mobile signals are a common probelm in many areas but we are trying to lobby for improvements

Beautiful location, comfortable, extremely clean and a gift of Chocolates, it only didn't receive 5 stars because there was no phone reception or Wi-Fi. We stay at a lot of cottages and this is one of my favourites now.
