  • Poor cell phone coverage

    Poor cell phone coverage. Spark no coverage. 2 degrees was limited. No wifi code on arrival. Place a bit dated to be called modern. But great views!!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your feedback. You will have noted on our Bookabach site, we only state that Knotswood has Vodafone reception, and as in much of the village this can be limited at times. Due to this fact we provide unlimited wifi to our visitors as part of the package. The wifi code is available to all guests on the modem screen, when the modem is turned on. Knotswood is a timber lined house, hence the name Knotswood. I am pleased you enjoyed the views.
