Initially had a problem with the condition of the desktop that came in a separate package to the main desk parts. On opening the desktop packaging the central area of the desktop which appears to be an oak veneer showed signs it had lifted in a lot of areas and was also cracked. Running the flat of your hand over it you could feel the ripples.I spoke to Cotswold the next day and they requested photos to be sent to them and would then get back to me on a solution to the problem. Did not get back to me and had to to chase them up. They then arranged for the whole desk including the desktop to be returned and a replacement sent they said would be quality checked prior to sending. I paid extra originally for quick delivery and the replacement they said would take a while as it needed to be quality checked. Argued with them that having paid extra for quick delivery the replacement delivery should be expedited. Eventually agreed and the replacement desk was received in good time. I checked it over on arrival before the delivery men left and it was a good job as the fixings were missing even though it had been quality checked!!. Had to take the fixings out of the package being sent back, otherwise would have be waiting again to assemble and use it.Why I couldn't just have the desk top replaced is beyond me as this came in a separate package to the rest of the desk, this involved twice as much work repackaging two large items to go back instead of one, however, now it is set up well satisfied, it looks good quality item.Everything fitted together well,however, affixing the desk top is very fiddly working inside & underneath the cupboards each side, used a 90 degree offset screwdriver with an Alan key bit which helped a lot.

The overall revue of the desk was "super". Exactly what we wanted. Unfortunately on opening the box we noticed that the wooden carriers for the draw assembly were split. The parts that were split were bound with blue tape. This was part of Cotswold's Quality Control indicators. The delivery men asked what we wanted to do, and we said as I was a bit of a DIY person, we would contact Cotswold by telephone, and get replacement parts, and replace the wooden parts myself. No hard problem for me. . We duly did this and true to form Cotswold sent us metal draw assembly parts. Completely the wrong things. Unfortunately I do not possess the skills to photograph the faults and put it on this report. The draw works but we are aware of it's faults. Ron and Kathleen Pethers

The desk is ok, the handles are not as solid as I was expecting them to be. My gripe is that the thing was made in China! I would never have brought it if I'd known, also due to it's un-ecological trip around the globe it was packed in three bin bags full of polystyrene and sheets of plastic wrap. The fittings to attach the back board were MFI style at their worse also it was very fiddly to put together. The desk looks ok now and does the job but I wont be buying from your company again which is quite sad as we got your brochure when we moved into our new house and were very keen on the look of your products. I will just have to look harder to find furniture that is made, if not in Britain, then at least nearer then ruddy China!

We are mainly happy with the finished product but the instructions, tools and components provided for self-assembly were disappointing. The first problem arose taking the drawer out as the diagram showed an arrow pointing downwards to release the catch. The connecting rods for the back brace would have been easier if just a fraction longer and the spanner was to wide and we had to adjust it. Again securing the top with the allen key proved difficult as parts of the frame blocked the access and two of the screw holes had no thread to screw into. Once completed we found we had the unattractive side of the back brace showing as we had followed the instructions but did not have the stamina to dismantle it all and start again

Having an awkward staircase to negotiate it was a great advantage that the desk was supplied broken down. Assembly instructions were supplied in advance of ordering the item. For 15, I elected to have the delivery guys assemble it for me, money very well spent. They were very helpful albeit I needed to guide them when it came to installing the drawer! The computer tower fits snugly on the left side of the desk whilst there is more than adequate storage space in the right hand side compartment. The desk is well constructed and finished with a really solid feel at a reasonable price and am happy to recommend the desk to anybody. Mike Tuffley

A really good shopping experience. Ordered the desk online, was given delivery date. Someone rang on the day to let us know they were on the way. Two very polite delivery men arrived, carried it to the room of our choice, unwrapped it for our inspection and took wrapping away with them. We have used this company before and have no qualms about ordering from them without seeing the furniture beforehand. Also know that should any problems occur, they will do their utmost to rectify it. Ordered this desk for our small study. It looks superb! Cannot fault it.

The computer desk is very well constructed and very solid. The wood used is very well processed into the various pieces and the cupboards and drawers all fit well. The only slight difficulty was that it does not come as a completed unit so there is some assembly to be done. This can be done by the delivery team for a small charge. I chose to do it myself and did have a small amount of difficulty in ensuring that the desktop was properly square on the top of the cupboards and drawers. We are still so delighted with it that we are giving it 5s.

Everything was absolutely fine, we are very pleased with it and it was delivered on time. A little bit cautious about assembling it, but it was straightforward. The only complaint was the allen key with its long lever and using it in a small space. However, as we possessed a shorter one which worked much better. Would certainly recommend the Cotswold Co.

Very pleased with the speedy delivery, within 36 hrs from time of order. Excellent oak desk, matches our other oak furniture a treat, the computer and printer and keyboard are all in the desk, hidden away so when not in use it looks like a piece of furniture, ideal for our home/office. Highly recommended.

5

Very pleased with computer desk, however fitting the top was a really difficult procedure and even now because of accessibilty some of the screws are not in place. Amy Boon offered to replace and have the fitting done on delivery, lazy me could not be bothered going through the hassle!M.Helen MacGregor

Unfortunately the delivery men could not put the desk together for us (we had paid for this) because there were insufficient fixings included.This meant we had to wait for the missing bits to be posted to us to allow for self assembly. The cost of assembly was refunded but rather disappointing.

5

Now that your team has put the desk together properly I am very pleased. The first team to assemble the desk didn't put 2 nuts on the bar under where the keyboard shelf so it collapsed! Not very pleased. I tried to get the nuts from your team but they sent to parcels neither had the nuts.

5

Ideal for our upstairs study as the access is difficult. This desk comes in 4 pieces so could be assembled in situ. We paid only 15 for the delivery men to assemble it as other peoples reviews suggested that it was a bit fiddly to put together. Very pleased with the finished result.

5

It looks lovely and I enjoy working at it. Couple of negatives: Box said it is made in China which was disappointing as I hoped to have bought a UK made product. Also it was a little tricky to fix the table top in place on the side that already had the drawer fitted.

5

Very pleased with my computer desk - it looks very stylish and is very comfortable to work at. The drawer and two cupboards hold a multitude of items and there is plenty of space on top for my laptop, printer etc. A really beautiful piece of furniture.

4

Really pleased with this desk. Very nice look to it and not too "officey" which I wanted for home so doubles up as a nice piece of furniture as well when I'm not working! Just a bit tricky to assemble as instructions very basic !

5

Beautiful furniture, really good quality. Looks wonderful in our new office. The delivery service is really good too, they unpacked it, took it upstairs and took away the cardboard. Five star service

Arrived damaged with a screw missing from one of the doors.. A bit disappointed as this is supposed to be quality checked for the price.Awaiting reply from cotswold on the quality issue.

5

The Oakland large bookcase was easy to assemble and looks good in the room. I don't think I like the little plastic feet. I'm intending to remove them and put pads in their place.

5

I am really pleased with this - it is a lovely piece of furniture, unlike some computer desks. We have lounge and dining furniture from the same range, so it blends in very well.

5

desk is of good quality but very disappointed that bolts and fixings are very exposed to the eye from the front view. This is a poor design or finish for an expensive desk.

5
