Thank you for your lovely review Rebecca. The power with regard to the shower is a tricky one. As the cottage was a former single storey barn a power shower supplied by a water tank would be virtually impossible. Just no loft space unfortunately! As you say, electric showers aren't always the most powerful but adequate.
