Our second visit to Lookout Retreat and everything again was great. A very warm welcome from Nigel got our break off to a relaxing start, and we knew we needn't have any worries about comfort or cleanliness - everything was first class. The location is great for touring this lovely area, or leave the car and walk to Dunster or Minehead and use the Read moresteam train to drop you back almost to the door. Nigel and Paula were always on hand with help or advice if needed. We'll be back next year! Hide
