Spent a very comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable few days at The Viewing Platform. Only downside was that we weren't able to make the most of the decking area due to the 'Glastonbury weather'

Lovely little cabin, me and my sister really enjoyed our stay! Cabin had everything we needed, located on a small campsite/farm but in a secluded, scenic area next to a sheep field and a cow pasture. Great location, particularly for people with dogs (ones not fussed by cattle or sheep, that is); plenty of walks from the doorstep including some woodRead moreland that belonged to the farm, with some forestry commission woodland just over the road.
