“Lovely weekend away, perfect place for a couple to stay”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Annabelle couldn't have been more helpful before we arrived and then once we were there. The studio is clean and very spacious, the photos are a true reflection of how lovely it is. The studio was peaceful and perfect for a few nights away, just a 20minute walk into town for some lovely meals and near lots of other beautiful villages that are just a short drive away. We have already recommended the studio and would love to come back again if we ever get the chance!

“Perfect host/lovely place”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Due to our change in plans we didn't arrive until almost 10pm, we'd contacted Annabelle in advance & this wasn't a problem. The place is lovely, very quiet, extremely clean. Plenty of parking, secure.
The breakfast is continental and is delivered at a time to suit and plenty of it. A small kitchen with toaster, coffee machine. A nice touch to leave some milk for us. Annabelle is the perfect host. Only a 10/15 minute walk to Lymington. This will be on our list to book when returning to the New Forest

“Fabulous attention to detail, beautiful accommodation”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Staying here at the moment. The studio is an exquisite conversion of an existing building set back from a main road. Annabelle has thought of everything and she even allowed us to bring our tiny dachshund with us.

The mini kitchen holds tea (or coffee), milk and biscuits, these were just what we needed after a 3 hour drive. It also has a fridge with freezer box, microwave, washing machine and coffee maker.

The breakfast was glorious and felt extremely decadent. I was thinking we would save some for later but somehow it all disappeared. The breakfast is delivered to your room with warm bread and pastries, we had freshly squeezed orange juice, strawberries and yoghurt too and you can help yourself to cereal.

You have your own access gate and door, parking is right outside so no need to disturb anyone when coming in and out.

The bed is a super king (6ft) and is just like ours at home. Slept like a log, so comfy. Plenty of pillows and gorgeous white linen. Farrow and Ball type colours on the walls.

“Wonderful stay in studio by the sea”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Studio by the sea is an idyllic, sweet, romantic hidden treasure of Lymington. Annabelle's hospitality is warm, friendly and we had a great time. If you are looking for a homely, cosy environment but with a lot of privacy, then this is somewhere you would love.

It is a short walk to Lymington and the ferry terminal to the Isle of Wight. We arrived late and we were welcomed with a wonderful little studio, beautifully presented with all we needed. The effort that has been put into this charming place is clearly evident and we would certainly be returning the next time we visit the area.

On both mornings we woke to an amazing breakfast which we enjoyed on the terrace, overlooking the paddock and Isle of Wight in the distance. It was a very enjoyable stay.

“Perfect relaxing location with excellent facilities”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is a private house with a separate annex, perfect for a short break as there is only a minimum stay of two days. So quiet, clean, modern, huge big comfy bed and a secluded outdoor terrace with a view over the countryside out to the sea. There is also a kitchenette if you wanted to take anything with you. The owner is very accommodating, and brings a continental breakfast at a time to suit. I really couldn't fault it, decent pub with good food in walking distance. Isle of Wight ferry in walking distance, Lymington is also walking distance. Thank you Annabelle for such a lovely short break.

“Perfect Hideaway”
Reviewed July 27, 2014 for a stay in July 2014


Had a fantastic long weekend at Studio by the Sea. The room itself is beautifully decorated to a very high standard and there are lots of little touches to make you feel at home. We had the best nights sleep in the super comfortable enormous bed. The breakfast was very yummy with so much thought, freshly baked bread and sweet treats along with fresh berries picked from the surrounding area. The private decking was a perfect spot to enjoy the view of the gorgeous countryside. A great base for exploring the New Forest! Annabelle and her family were very welcoming and gave some great tips on places to eat and things to do. I will defiantly be recommending Studio by the Sea to all my family and friends.
