Ad with the brand “Witz” after “Holiday home turns out to be a terraced house

An online advert for vacation rentals in a rental property has been branded “an absolute joke” after being marketed as “a cozy cottage” – despite the fact that it’s a townhouse in a mining town.

The three bedroom property appeared on Cottages.com earlier this year – described as a ‘thoughtfully furnished’ cottage with many amenities and close to natural beauty.

As part of the ad, the website mentions that the house sleeps six, has one bathroom and WiFi, is a mile from the coast and costs £445 for seven nights.

The website states: ‘A spacious townhouse offering comfortable and well-appointed accommodation for four adults and two children.

“The living area is open plan with a cozy sitting room, Smart TV, flickering open fire, a selection of games and an Amazon Echo for your music and news.

“Carefully decorated with references to local artists and culture, the cottage reminds us of the region’s rich mining history.”

The house is located in Easington Colliery, County Durham.

The ad states that “Billy Elliot was filmed at Easington Colliery and some of the buildings that served as the backdrop can still be seen.”

It also mentions that the old colliery benefits from a conservation area and is close to Durham Cathedral, Beamish Museum and the Durham Dales.

Despite the extensive publicity for the ‘cottage’, people on social media assumed the site was ‘some kind of joke’ and branded Easington as ‘an experience you’ll never forget’.

Commenting on the Cottages.com ad, one user wrote on social media: “Did you notice that it doesn’t advertise the rats running up the side street or the local idiots setting fire to the bushes in the reserve, or the many empty houses down there? while another wryly added: “Once in a lifetime”.

However, others tried to defend the ad, stressing that “compared to some places it’s going to be paradise for a week or two I think”.
