The hostess was verry kind, the room clean and proper served, good breakfest. The room and hall were quite small. There was a muffy smell in the hall. The front of the house needs a renovation. There was NO Wifi coverage in the room.

We stayed here for just one night wished we could have stayed longer. The hosts were amazing as soon as we arrived the lady offered us advise on where to eat locally. The room was lovely more like a hotel than a guest house, beautiful bedlinen, the room dressed lovely. Everything was thought of hair dryer, fan, toiletries, lovely white... More

Staying at South View Guest house was a delight. The room was very clean and we were provided with whiter than white bath towels and lovely bathroom products! There were tea and coffee making facilities in the room with added touch of two delicious slices of homemade flapjack! Access to the Valley of the Rocks was so close and Lynmouth... More

Me and my family recently stayed at this bed and breakfast as we were visiting family who live in the area. I very much enjoyed my stay and would without a doubt stay again. The breakfast was nice and was cooked very well, I also enjoyed the selection of cereal and fruit available. The hostess was polite and was very... More

We know Lynton and Lynmouth very well as we have family who live there. We recently had an opportunity to visit Lynton for a couple of days and after reading the really good reviews on Trip Advisor we opted to stay in the South View which is located near to our family. The proprietors Caddy and Martin were both very... More

We had a warm welcome on arrival with tea and cake. Our hosts made sure we had everything we needed and were interested in making sure we were well set up. Common areas were well decorated and stylish. Our room was clean, well decorated and had some really nice touches, the bathroom was very clean with an efficient shower. Breakfast... More

South View lies in Lynton, which is very picturesque and worth a longer stay. Our hosts were very forthcoming, we had a lovely cosy room and were just a short walk from restaurants, the village and magnificent views. It's a walkers paradise!

Location is great. On check in, the property looks a little shabby externally but the communal areas were fine. However on reaching our room on the second floor, we found a tiny bedroom (nowhere for luggage), which smelled a bit like wet dog. The walls had mismatching textured wallpaper - very 1970's - and the ensuite was essentially a cupboard... More

We stayed at the very conveniently located South View Guest House for 2 nights. Our room although just a little small was very comfortable and clinically clean. The breakfasts were exceptional, very wide choice and very well presented. Kathy and Martin are very friendly and informative hosts and we would not hesitate to recommend this B and B.

We stayed over 2 nights with our 4 teens, while exploring the Exmoor Park. A great place to stay, clean and quiet, nice bathrooms, strong and tasty breakfasts every morning. Un excellent rapport qualite / prix. Un accueil simple, discret et chaleureux, Un petit dejeuner qui permet de demarrer solidement des journees de marches avec nos 4 ados.
