“A Hidden Gem. Perfect Place to Unwind.”
Reviewed 5 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Just what we needed.
We could only spend five days but wished it was more and will certainly be back. What a lovely place to unwind and re-charge our batteries.
Viewpoint is a little gem. Hidden in the countryside alongside lovely woodland walks and horse pastures. We loved spending time with the resident ponies Bill and Ben who were really friendly.
We couldn't believe somewhere only 5 minutes from the M1 could be so peaceful.
The Village pub is excellent just a five minute walk away and the village bakery is divine. It was so nice to have fresh bread and cakes every day. We had far too many warm hot cross buns.
Ray and Sue were the perfect hosts from our first enquiry to helping us find the best walks and restaurants in the area.
We weren't sure but after our visit we can fully recommend a tour of the mining museum near Wakefield and the Huskar Memorial only 200yds away.
We're definatelycoming back and bringing Mum and Dad with us.

“Excellent rental property”
Reviewed 14 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

The owners were very accommodating and left us to enjoy our stay. The location next to the Trans Penine way was ideal for walks with small children.

“Good location”
Reviewed 7 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Viewpoint is a great base, the accommodation was clean and comfortable ideal for a family of four. The big plus for us was we were able to take our dog. The house is situated right next to the Pennine trail so lots of lovely walks ideal for cycling. Would definitely recommend and will use again. Thank you Ray.

“Comfortable and cosy accommodation”
Reviewed 25 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The accommodation was comfortable and well furnished, with good facilities. Although it is on the owner's property, it is very private and not overlooked at all. Indeed, the only negative was that it had only skylights as windows, so there was absolutely no view (other than the sky) once inside - which was unexpected and disappointing given the property is called "Viewpoint": some people might find it a little claustrophobic. Nevertheless, it is in a very quiet area and the countryside around is very attractive, with good walks very close by. Fortunately we had exceptionally good weather, and with the local train station only a few hundred yards away (up a hill), we were able to make good use of public transport to explore the area. A good base for South Yorkshire. Highlight of our stay was the underground tour at the National Coal Mining Museum.

“Perfect for both Barnsley and surrounding rural area”
Reviewed 16 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

2 Adults and 4 children enjoyed a most enjoyable stay at Viewpoint. The apartment was perfect with every amenity required and ample parking. Located very close to main routes, yet in the perfect rural setting. We stayed to attend a wedding at the Holiday Inn some 3 miles away and paid a fraction of the cost of the two hotel rooms we would have needed. The aparment is self-catering and offers much more flexibility than a hotel room ever could. Ray and Sue were the perfect hosts ensuring our every need was attended to without any fuss. This apartment is perfect whether you wish to enjoy the countryside or have direct access to Barnsley or other towns in immediate area as it is so well sited to main routes. The security deposit was returned immediately after departure - another aspect of the excellent service provided by Ray and Sue.....Children's play area close by and Bill and Ben (the resident horses) were great fun...ideally placed for the Equestrian centre for any budding horse enthusiasts. Highly recommended.
