“Good location & nice cottage but lacking essentials for an enjoyable stay”

The price of the cottage was fair for our short stay and time of the year. The location is good, and there is room for 2 cars. The furnishings have been updated since the photos on here were taken. There is a nice decking area outside plus a children's Wendy House, which is a nice touch for families. There are 3 rooms, 2 of which on the first floor are reasonably sized, the 3rd room being a small single. There is a bathroom on the ground, plus a shower room on the first. We were relatively comfy here through the day, but we found a big issue with the heating. The cottage was very cold, and the thermostat was not adjustable, likely due to a lock being put on the temperature. This, I'm afraid we found disappointing, as with no open fire in the cottage we were relying on the central heating, but unfortunately the lack of flexibility on the heating made the atmosphere in the cottage very cold. At night, the 1st floor rooms were just about warm enough for a comfortable nights sleep, but my friend who stayed in the single ground room was very cold at night and had to sleep in clothes which, meant when the heating kicked in at 6, he was woken up absolutely roasting. Definitely need to allow paying guests the flexibility to adjust their own heating. The bath on the ground floor initially ran cold, so needs to run very slowly to attain the desired temperature. Nevertheless, a good bath if you can afford to wait. The shower on the first however is not very powerful. It's an electric shower which fails to provide the satisfactory pressure for an enjoyable shower. We were that cold at times, that we had the oven and hobs on just to provide additional heating so, if the locked thermostat is an efficiency plan... it didn't work on this occasion. As previously stated, there is no WI-FI which, is not such a big issue if you can get a 3/4G signal... but you can't. So, the only way to access the internet is to go to the local shop and buy a voucher, which on a Sunday (when I needed access) is not possible. I think the WI-FI instalment would seriously be worth the investment. Negatives aside, all cooking utensils and facilities are available, plus iron/ironing board. Also there are some complimentary board games to use which for families is a nice touch.
