So pleased that you enjoyed your holiday and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I note your comments re the hot water and have passed them on to the owner who is actually looking into a new heating and hot water system at the moment. However, as you say, simply boosting the hot water before use ensures there is plenty for everyone. With regards to the bike and the games room, I will certainly look into this and apologise for any inconvenience it may have caused you. Thanks again and hope you will book with us again in the future, Angela
