  • "Excellent property in a super location."

    The views from the house are magnificent. It was great to watch the weather changing from all directions and to see such a abundance of wildlife. The property has been well thought out with lots of equipment and information. We simply could not fault it and will most definitely return. Family of seven, including grandparents and children - the layout meant we could easily keep noise away from sleeping children at night and sleeping grandparents in the morning!

  • "Had a great holiday at South View, grandchildren didn't want to leave, weather not kind to us but great to have somewhere warm and comfortable to come back to after a day out plus plenty of space for 6 adults and 2 children."

    We are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at South View Helen and Peter Bernard Property Owner

  • "We had a delightful stay in a beautifully appointed house."

    The standards of furnishings are high and there are plenty of bowls, pans etc which so often are lacking. The only slight niggle is the heating. The owner has decided when the radiators should come on and that doesn’t always suit. The weather was cold and we had a small baby so we needed warmth at different times to the programmed radiators. One shouldn’t really have to feel cold when on holiday and initially we did. I’m afraid I did alter some of the heating programmes contra to instructions and apologise that they will need reprogramming. That being said, we loved our stay. Thank you.

  • "A lovely house."

    The kitchen was very well equipped. Spacious bedrooms with comfy beds and modern bathrooms throughout. We didn't have the weather to enjoy the garden, but the views from the house were stunning.

    We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. Kind regards Helen and Peter Bernard Property Owner

  • "It’s a long journey from Somerset to Northumberland and upon arriving at the house very tired and weary, our party of 8 were very disappointed to find no milk, not even a teabag, no spare toilet rolls or a pack of biscuits!"

    We paid over £2000 for the week’s rental and it is the first holiday house we have booked that hasn’t provided even a basic Welcome Pack. House clean and tidy but the approach drive needs careful negotiation with a hire car as several big dips.

    Dear Heather, Sincere apologies for this, we have reported it to our agent. Kind regards Helen Bernard Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely family Christmas here, everything you could need in a holiday cottage."

    The whole package was just beautiful, with lovely views, just a shame there was so much rain so the majority of the lanes were under water. Will definitely stay in this cottage again

    We are delighted that you enjoyed your Christmas at South View and we look forward to your return! Helen and Peter Property Owner

  • "South View is a beautiful holiday home although it is nearer Seahouses than Bamburgh."

    It was a bit more in the country than we had anticipated but the views are wonderful and the garden really sheltered. We even sat in the garden enjoying the sunshine in October! The house is well equipped and there was plenty of room for our whole party to get together.

  • "Lovely, comfortably furnished to a high spec, well equipped house."

    Perfect location for well known sights and wonderful beaches. We did have a problem with huge amount of flies in the house, particularly upstairs, and noticed they were appearing from the loft. The only other slight negative was relating to the springs extending (pinging noise) on the bed nearest the window in the room without a bathroom. The description states that there are fabulous walks on the doorstep, this is slightly misleading, as there are no walks close to the house. All in all, we had the most wonderful week with glorious weather. Love Northumberland!

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your comments which were most useful. Helen and Peter Property Owner

  • "Excellent accommodation to suit family / group."

    Very well equipped with everything to make your holiday an enjoyable stay. Very generous welcome pack which was much appreciated following long journey. Ideally situated for exploring the area. Quiet and peaceful with the most comfortable beds. Tastefully decorated throughout. Spacious/ sociable living space also huge lounge which we rarely used as the extension was the hub of the house. Highly recommend.

    We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, Peter and Helen Property Owner

  • "It is a lovely welcoming house in a great location but there are some problems: The property is not accurately described as it says the downstairs bedroom has an en suite shower room and it does not."

    There is a shower room adjacent but that is separately described. If it says it is ensuite it should be. The dishwasher was not working well i.e. it left some dishes dirty The springs in the beds in the downstairs bedroom were prominent and made the beds uncomfortable. We are sorry but we had one breakage, a bowl.

    We are sorry about the description and will seek to change this with the agent. Also apologies re dishwasher we have now rectified this. We were surprised to hear about the beds downstairs and would like to say that we have received no other complaints regarding the beds which are high hotel quality. Peter and Helen Property Owner

  • "South View is like the Tardis; it’s exterior belies the spaciousness inside."

    The ground floor seems to go on and on. The whole house is finished to a good standard and shows excellent attention to detail. There were welcome treats for the dog as well as us!

  • "We rent holiday homes on a regular basis in the UK and abroad as 2 families and we have owned our own holiday home previously."

    We do have very high standards and expectations and South View absolutely met these expectations. The property is ideally located and has been beautifully and tastefully renovated to a very high standard. The house has everything you could possibly need and more and is of a hotel standard. We would highly recommend the property and couldn’t fault it at all and we would definitely like to return in the future.

  • "The property is stunning!"

    It has everything we wanted for a week away as a family group. There is so much space in the property and the garden is brilliant and secure. We loved the kitchen living room area and spent most of our time in there, retiring to the cosy snug area in the evenings where the log burner was. It was perfect for a dog as well, ours settled really well and slept in the utility at night that was secure. We would recommend this property 100%. The owner was extremely helpful and was keen to make our stay as perfect as possible.

  • "South View is the best we've ever rented in the UK."

    The house was everything promised - clean, spacious, airy, with a modern luxe vibe and cracking sea views. We cooked big family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and the dining area fitted us all in comfortably. A huge rear garden and thoughtful extras like binoculars and a telescope with the most important thing, a comfy bed with lush, clean smelling linen. We're definitely coming back.
