“Perfect New Forest Retreat”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We arrived and were met by Annabelle who had already helped us with some recommendations of lovely local pubs. Annabelle explained the essentials, asked us when we wanted breakfast and left us to it.
The studio was immaculate and had everything we needed for our break. It is modern, felt 'fresh' and everything was of a very high standard.
The breakfast that arrived the next morning was just amazing, hot pastries and toast, a range of fruits over the stay, yogurts and (seriously!) freshly squeezed fruit juice as well as the cafetiere. The Studio was also cleaned and cleared (of breakfast stuff) when we were out during the day, it was nice to come back to a beautifully made bed.
Everything about the stay was just lovely and perfect for a 'babymoon', that says a lot as a 30 weeks pregnant it really needed to be good.
the home is located just out of the town centre, a very short drive, you could possibly walk it but the road to walk down isn't the safest. Te studio was very much walking distance from a pub, which isn't the nicest but would do for a few drinks.
Also incredibly close to the Isle of Wight Ferry which goes to Yarmouth- lovely for a day trip and fish and chips. We drove to it but you could also walk there in about 20 minutes.

Overall, a lovely stay and we would highly recommend it.

“Excellent stay and host”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon.
The studio was amazing, so relaxing. The situation was excellent and the host Annabelle made us feel so welcome.
We enjoyed the freshly prepared breakfast each morning, we were spoilt. We would thoroughly recommend that you stay here and enjoy the studio.

“Not your average B&B”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I wouldn't normally choose a B&B to stay in, however based on the website for Studio by the Sea and the excellent Trip Advisor reviews I did & I was not disappointed. The Studio is a real 'home from home' in a beautiful private 'annexe' off the main house. You really feel tucked away and part of nature with the beautiful views from your private patio. I warn you that after you have slept in the massive bed in the Studio you will never want to get out if it!! The Studio is done up beautifully with everything you need, a lovely bathroom with a big shower and a lovely little kitchen with tea and coffee making facilities. Annabelle delivers breakfast at a time of your choice and it is delicious! Freshly made bread, pastries, yogurt and fruit. Annabelle was kind enough to let us split our 2 day stay when our son fell poorly when we had our first night back in March, we returned in July for our second stay and loved it just as much. We were overwhelmed by how generous it was to let us do that and we are very grateful. Thanks Annabelle, we hope to see you again.

“Had a memorable stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed here for 6 nights at the end of July and I completely agree with all the other glowing reviews we had read before our trip. You will not want for anything here and if you did you can guarantee the host Annabelle would provide it for you without hesitation. Special mentions for the excellent breakfast and biggest, most comfortable bed you will ever sleep in but, in truth, everything was exceptional.

We used the Studio by the Sea as a base for exploring the surrounding New Forest, the Isle of Wight and Lymington itself. If, like us, you want to use the car as little as possible, take the leisurely walk down the adjacent Monument Lane to the Isle of Wight ferry port (about 10-15 mins) or into Lymington (25 mins - there is a quicker route but this was the best) and catch trains there to Brockenhurst and the New Forest. We tended to have a meal and a few drinks in Lymington and used Lymington Taxis to get back in the evening (less than £4 from Lymington and they were very good).

I would highly recommend staying here and wouldn't hesitate to return if we visit the area again.

“A truly relaxing retreat!”
Reviewed 14 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

Having just come home from several days stay at the studio by the sea , I've never had such a peaceful and more relaxing time down in Lymington in all my life ( and we've been visiting often for many many years!).
First off, myself and my partner were greeted in such a warm and friendly manner that we instantly felt relaxed and at home. In such a cozy little place, the character and charm was second to none, with every detail carefully thought out, theres nothing to want for! All the little touches that just make for a wonderful getaway! From the handmade soaps, fresh smelling towels and superbly comfortable super kingsize bed (that we found difficult to leave in the mornings!) to the freshly baked bread with fruit, pastries, yoghurt, coffee, tea (and more) all delivered daily! There's little else you could ask for!!! All served with a friendly smile from our host Annabelle who even managed to bring the sunshine for the whole time we were staying! (Now that's what I call service!!!)
We really didn't want to leave after such a lovely time and can't recommend this little nook in Lymington enough! Within an arms reach of the main highstreet, there's plenty around and we'll definitely be staying again!!!
A superb little spot that you'll definitely enjoy! We couldn't have had a better time!
Thanks again to Annabelle and John for such a fantastic stay! :)
