We have just spent three nights in The Studio and can't wait to return. It was spotlessly clean and had everything you could possibly need. A fridge was provided with a fresh jug of milk everyday. There was plenty of tea and coffee, as well as cookies and Cathies very welcome treats! Cathie cooks the most delicious breakfast which she... More

This place is really lovely. We were made very welcome by Cathie and had a lovely time. The room is incredibly comfortable and spacious, the breakfast is great and the hospitality couldn't be better. Really good, would definitely stay here again.

We were booked in here by a friend for the day of his daughter's wedding so had no idea what to expect. What we found was delightful. A separate building from the owner, it is self contained with a lovely comfortable double bed and also a single one. It's warm and cosy whilst still being spacious. Cathy who greeted us... More

We stayed here after the Green Man festival and it was a very welcome retreat. I loved the back garden- sitting under the tree in the evening sunshine, looking at that stunning view is definitely good for the soul. The studio offers so much more than a normal B and B. The breakfasts were incredible especially because we could sit... More

this was just the perfect BnB for us, Booking and email communication was easy and efficient, On arrival we received the warmest welcome we have ever received. The accommodation is different in that it is a studio detached from the main house which gives a sense of independence yet served and pampered by Cathie who is a delight. The breakfast... More

We have just spent 4 nights at The Studio and were really pleased with our choice. It was very comfortable and the view from the room is stunning. Cathie could not be more helpful.

Having read the reviews, I was really looking forward to my stay here. However, having just returned from touring, this was the least impressive of similar priced accommodation. There is no doubt, the location is stunning. Upon arrival you are greeted with a driveway you can't use, but the owner uses and it looks untidy. There are steep and narrow... More
