Painting & Decorating Question

Cracked paint in bathroom


We have recently moved into an old cottage and I have been decorating the house my last room is the bathroom buy before I start I wondered if anyone could help with a couple of questions I have.
At the moment the paint on the walls is cracking and flaking free. The other problem I have is that the previous owner looks like they painted straight over the flaking paint and now the walls and some of the ceiling looks a bit of a mess with lots of areas where the paint had come free and the had not repaired it before painting again. I think I have done a decent job on the rest of the house and it looks smart so I want to do a decent job on the bathroom can someone please help.

Many thanks

use a scraper to remove any loose and flaking paint fill any holes in the paint with a good filler and sand the affected area.
paint with a good brand paint like Dulux for bathrooms and shower areas.
hope this helped.
