12 of us have just come back from an amazing stay at south lodge, the weekend was 28 degrees so spent most of the time in the garden, which was huge and hosted an inflatable assault course and sumo suits with still room for games! We also had a chef come and make us a meal who was very impressed with the kitchen, Andrew was great with all of these requests! The house had everything you could think of, and all the bedrooms were perfect with big comfy beds, especially the main bedroom with fantastic views and an amazing big bathroom and dressing room! Hunmanby is nice with everything you need, we had a nice Chinese and used the handy co op from 2 mins down the road. Don't hesitate booking its fantastic for a big group, we will definitely be back!
The house was booked for a family weekend away. We all packed our cases and headed to the beautiful South Wing. The photos that we had seen made the house look great and we soon found they in fact do not do the house justice it is absolutely stunning! Communication with the owner is prompt and very informative. The garden was host to rounders matches games of football and a bbq. Both children and adults had a completely unforgettable weekend away. My nephew didn't want to leave his 'holiday house' because he, 'loved it, loved it, loved it'.
What a fantastic holiday destination South Wing is.
We were 12 adults looking forward to our first group holiday together and we couldn't have been more delighted with our choice of South Wing to stay in. We had an absolutely brilliant time.
There is so much space and the rooms are enormous. The lounges and dining room are perfect for being able to socialise and eat as one big group. We had great fun exploring all the rooms and then showing the latecomers round.
The house is very well equipped and unbelievably warm. We'd all packed expecting an old building to be cold and draughty - which it definitely wasn't.
The outside of South Wing is just as good as the inside. The lawn is big enough for a game of rounders and the woodland walk round the outskirts of the golf course allows you to look back on the house and admire the scale of the full building. We also walked into Hunmanby village which is literally 2 minutes walk away and has a couple of pubs, fish and chips, deli, Post office, etc etc
Filey itself is well worth a visit as it is only a few miles away and has a huge, sandy beach. You may even be as brave as some of our group and take a (very) quick dip in the refreshing North Sea!
We loved this property so much that we're all now trying to synchronise our diaries to see when we can book a return visit in 2018...
I felt quite under pressure organising a stay over New Year's Eve for friends! Needn't have worried as we were all blown away by magnificent South Wing. Location great, house is indeed stunning and really well-equipped for big parties. Wonderfully comfortable too, we had a fantastic time relaxing by the fireplace in the enormous sitting room, playing the excellent grand piano...
The owner could not have been more helpful and was extremely patient and responsive in spite of our (completely our own fault) getting in a muddle over keys.
We hope to return - what a way to start the year!
Southview is the perfect destination for a get-together. It is a fabulous property with ample space and lots of character. We booked Southview for a pre-Christmas family celebration and found it to be absolutely perfect. The accommodation is so spacious that you can be assured of finding a quiet corner somewhere if needed. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and the welcome pack was a particularly nice addition. We were a little worried that such a large property might be cold but that was certainly not the case - it was lovely and warm. All the arrangements for our stay were made through Andrew who was incredibly helpful and answered all our questions fully. We look forward to visiting again!
If you want space then South Wing is for you. It's HUGE. We're a group of 4 families with young kids. The kids had a whale of a time running round and there was very little in the way of breakables for the grown ups to have to worry about. The beds were really comfortable, plenty of room round the big table to seat everyone for dinner and a very comfortable living room. There was even bread, butter, milk, bacon and eggs left in the kitchen for us (a lovely touch). We'd definitely go back as it was great value.
Where to even begin? The house itself was astounding. There was me and 11 of my good friends staying at South Wing, and we all spent a good 20 minutes going round the house in absolute awe of the sincere size, style and decor of the place. The bedrooms were amazing, with two ensuites and ample space for everyone to stay. The main living room was an unbelievable size, with a beautiful piano that we did have a go of! The smaller lounge, which was still a considerable size, had a television with Sky sports and bt sports, which definitely help ease the hangovers the next day! The house came with literally everything you could need in a kitchen, and the most beautiful dining room. We couldn't help but sit around it and eat together!
Overall, I'm incredibly happy that I found this place and would easily recommend it to friends and family. And for the price, it's an absolute bargain between a large group of you!
