I can not recommend this place enough to people with a interest in military history, Dave went out of his way to cater to our requests for a New Zealand styled tour through the battlefields of the Somme, his knowledge rivals some of the best when it comes to the history of the Western Front. The guest house was lovely...

Thank you for your review. It is always good to have positive feedback and helpful to know where we need to improve what we provide to our guests. We are really pleased you enjoyed your stay and tours of the Somme battlefield. However, if you had mentioned that you felt the bed could have been more comfortable during your stay,...

We could not recommend Beaumont Hamel View any higher than 5 stars, if we could we would have. We visited BHV last week for a 4 night stay, knowing Dave from working with him previously we knew he would be accommodating and we were right. From the first email we sent asking if he could fit us in to the...

I heartily recommend Dave Platt’s Great War tours. Dave has the KNOWLEDGE, FLEXIBILITY AND PASSION that sets him apart and above other guides in the area. As a World War I buff, I carefully researched where I wanted to go and who I wanted to spend my hard earned dollars hiring as a guide and was not disappointed. We have...

We visited the Somme in rememberance of an uncle who was wounded and died there at the age of 20. We contacted Dave & Anita to book accommodation which covered the 100th anniversary of uncles death. We provided Dave with information we had already had i.e. Name, army number, regiment & date of birth. David researched the case and provided...

Excellent stay with Dave and Anita in their house set in the middle of beautiful farm land on the Somme. Dave had researched my father's great uncle who served in the area and subsequently died at Ypres. He took us on a fascinating trail of discovery - walking in the footsteps of our ancestor culminating at the point where he...

Dave and Anita's place isn't just in the middle of where the action was in 1916, it's right on top of where the action was. After you park your bike in their secure barn, say your hellos and check out your room (ours was very clean and comfortable and very well appointed), you come back downstairs and step into the...

Stayed at Beaumont Hamel View last weekend, what a fantastic house with great views over the historic fields of WW1. This accompanied with the wealth of military knowledge particularly of WW1 by David Platt and the great food prepared and cooked by Dave's wife Anita it's a wonderful place to stay. Without Dave's knowledge the trip would not have been...
