Dangerous Plumbing and no electricity
I rented this cottage because it was all on one level. After I booked it I noticed that there had been a couple of later reviews about problems with the plumbing. I contacted Sykes on several occasions before our holiday to check that the issues had been resolved and that it was safe. I was assured all was fine. We arrived over the bank holiday and the showers were not safe and after a plumber had come out to sort ( he could not) one of the ring mains was off. I spent hours on the phone and we came home early. Still looking for a refund and some compensation for a spoiled holiday.
