About Gill Watkins

A very warm welcome awaits you at South View! We like to treat our guests the way we like to be treated on holiday. Our aim is to provide you with a home from home experience - what is upper most in our minds is to create a relaxing, comfortable stay in beautiful surroundings.

We have welcomed guests from all parts of the UK, plus overseas guests from Germany, Austria, Australia, Italy and the USA.

Gill Watkins purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Gill Watkins chose North Cornwall

The old saying location, location, location! Once we saw the stunning rural views from here and the convenience to the A39 whilst still being oh so quiet, we were sold!

And of course the coast is just minutes away, large sandy beaches, miles of coastal paths and Bude has lots of little restaurants, cafés and independent shops.

What makes this apartment unique

South View benefits from having a large covered alfresco area which is perfect to enjoy outside dining, drinks or a BBQ. Its also a great place to store bicycles, wet suits and surf boards.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say - our every need was catered for and we had a perfect stay!

Beautiful, spotless accommodation and what a view, we will be back! Thank you so much.

By far the best we have stayed in, had a very warm welcome and were then left to enjoy our stay. We will be back same time next year! Thank you so very very much.

We have had the best stay ever in this wonderful apartment, home from home, thanks to our hosts.

Wonderful holiday again, feels like coming to our other home. Look forward to seeing you again in 2014. Thanks again.

Super & Easy

  • 5 of 5

Accommodation was super clean & tidy.

Very easy to settle in.

Lots of hanging & cupboard storage.

Very quite with great "big sky" views.

Bigger newer style TV would be appreciated (our eyesight is not so good these days!)

Owner's Response: It was lovely meeting you both, so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for for taking the time to post your review, your comments are much appreciated. No one has ever mentioned the 32' LG flat screen TV in the lounge or the 26' LG flat screen in the bedroom in a negative manner before, if we get many other comments we will look to upgrade them. We look forward to having the opportunity of welcoming you back to South View again in the future.

Beautiful apartment with such lovely views

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a lovely week's break at south view. The apartment was larger than in the photos, very comfortable, huge outside area, and wonderful tranquil views. We loved sitting outside having breakfast and seeing the vast scenic view, with sheep roaming around. We had some lovely days out, within an hours driving distance. But it was a nice walk into Bude , for a wander around, few beers and good food. We feel totally recharged after chilling for the week, and we're so lucky to have had such wonderful weather, especially for April. We would definitely return to this home, if we were to visit this area again, would highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write about your holiday experience with us, always good to know how much our guests have enjoyed their stay. A lot of people do mention how much bigger the apartment is in "real life". We are very fortunate to live in such a wonderful location with beautiful surrounds and so many other stunning places to visit nearby! Bude has a lot to offer holiday makers of all ages and interests. We are immensely proud of our beaches and sea pool but also the good choice of cafes, restaurants and little independent shops in and around Bude. We look forward to welcoming you back to South View again in the future.

The accommodation was top class. The owners living above were friendly and helpful. The kitchen area was well equipped and the bathroom modern and spacious. lovely view down the valley from lounge and bedroom. Easy access to Bude and the coast. In our short stay did not have time to investigate local pubs. Perhaps next time when we will have no hesitation in booking here again

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is fresh and clean, well equipped and everything works. Lovely view down the valley across lovely garden. Parking is secure. Really enjoyed the 5 minute walk in the evenings to The Tree Inn...great food and beer! The self catering is a short drive (10mins) from truly beautiful beaches e.g. Sandymouth Bay, Widemouth, Bude etc. The owners are so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be going back. Great stay and marvellous value!
