Stayed in Waves End Feb half term 2023. Location was great, house was a bit dated and could do with some decoration but comfortable. However we had hot water issues when we tried to shower, water going from boiling hot to freezing cold. A huge burn risk for small kids like ours. Called the caretaker in the morning, but no one attended till 6.30pm bRead morey which time no plumber could be found. The caretaker then ignored our calls and was generally very unhelpful. Ruined the trip. Hide
