The weather was wet and foggy for the whole of our four night stay and so it was important that our 'home' was comfortable, warm, dry and had a good bath - we were very content with our home for the period, it was very welcoming and enabled us to dry out each day to be ready for the challenges to come. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in what was a tRead moreruly delightful and original place to be. Hide

We had a lovely time at the Viewing Platform. We literally had the whole site to ourselves. Local pubs were great and dog friendly. There are good walks direct from the property.

We stayed at The Viewing Platform the week 'the beast from the east' met storm Emma. Despite outside temperatures of -8, inside was warm and cosy, the central heating complemented by a log burner. The accommodation is appropriately decorated for it's history and location. We found Cheddar Gorge, Bath, Bristol, Wells and Glastonbury all within easy Read moredriving distance. A weather related issue we had was dealt with by Debbie and her team, making us feel nothing was too much trouble. We will return! Hide
