“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed April 19, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Wow!!!!!! This is such a lovely place to stay, peace and quiet and gorgeous surroundings. Stayed for a short 2 night break with my wife and it was perfect.
Annabelle is very warm and welcoming but not intrusive and lets you enjoy your break, but is always available should you need anything.
As for the breakfast you couldn't ask for a better choice absolutely lovely, fresh fruit,yoghurt homemade bread, pastries ,juice, tea and coffee. More than enough for 2.
The property is only a 5 minute drive to the ferry port so perfect for a day on the Isle of Wight.
Really cant wait to stay again.

Really nice weekend, lovely setting and great accommodation. It was a Christmas present for my girlfriend and she loved it. And the breakfast service makes it even better.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed April 11, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We could not have asked for a better few days away in the New Forest! The studio was beautiful and Annabelle made us feel so welcome. Breakfast was delicious (home made bread, pastries, fresh fruit...) and set us up perfectly for long walks along the Solent Way. We are already looking forward to a return visit!

“Perfect for a weekend getaway ”
Reviewed April 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Annabelle was lovely and welcoming, the perfect hostess.
It's definitely the personal touch of someone who seems to love what they do which made the difference for me.

There was a smell of paint in the room due to the room being decorated the week before we arrived. Through no fault of her own, the smell was still noticeable when we arrived although didn't really affect us but it clearly frustrated Annabelle that everything wasn't completely perfect. In the evening the next day we came back to an apology note and a bottle of prosecco which went down a treat after a long day at the Isle of Wight!

If we visit the New Forest again, it will be an easy decision as to where we stay.

“Pampered Treat”
Reviewed March 4, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Arrived with a warm and friendly welcome ,the studio flat was just a perfect retreat to unwind and relax.Detail in studio was superb and the amenities first class.
Attention to detail was exceptional,extra glasses and bowls without request .Showed the attention love and care provided in this business.
Breakfast was first class, with her hair tide up and bare below elbows and apron on,you could tell the love in which the breakfast had been prepared in her very own kitchen.Homemade bread and fresh juices.
The walks so good and pretty,and so near to town.
Will be booking again.To get a pampering!!!

If you are reading this review, stop reading and book now.
Every review before this is correct. The Studio by the Sea is a lovely place to stay.
Immaculately clean, warm and every last detail thought of.
Great location being only a short walk from Lymington and a couple of good local pubs.
Our host Annabelle, makes a fantastic breakfast brought to the Studio in a hamper and tray and it is gorgeous. A good start to any day.
We hope to book again soon.
