Next two weeks in Dorset, UK

For the next two weeks I'm staying in Dorset, UK... an hours' bus journey from Salisbury. My accomodation is quite poor; no mobile phone reception within a km, an internet cafe that never seems to be open, etc... and the shower has no temperature control... this morning, I turned all the hot-water taps on to full, put all the showers on and it didn't make the shower I wanted come down to a less-than-scolding temperature. Ridiculous.

I expect temporary accomodation to have dribbling lukewarm showers that I can at least try to wash under... not high-powered, scalding water that I can't bear!

Anyway, I'm not very mobile so don't think I'll be able to meet anyone apart from a few work colleagues who are in the area.

Showers are always tricky.
I spent a lot of time fiddling and scalding my skin off with mine until I discovered that the temperature is controlled by a small, unlabeled dial on the thermostat in the next room, not that temperature switch on the shower itself.

Re: Showers

The only possible place that controls temperate is inside the room where the boiler is, which is locked.

The telltale sign is that on the shower itself there is only incoming water pipe...
