“From a disabled perspective”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Not hard to find, but nearly missed the actual driveway as tucked off the main road. If you get to the pub "The Wallhampton Arms" then you should stop in the car park as "Studio by the sea" is literally a 3 minute walk. Your parking is in front of the double garage looking structure and is sign posted.

The main road is not paved so when venturing out by foot be careful not to get run over.

Upon arrival I phoned Annabelle and she was came out within a matter of minutes to hand us the key. We quickly settled in. Kitchen facilities as listed, they have a Tassimo coffee machine as well as a kettle, they do supply a variety of drink pods, but if usually have something specific you might like to take your own.

You can get a wheelchair through the door and there is plenty of turning space in the main room, you can get a wheelchair into the bathroom, but there is no turning space. Large shower but there are no grab rails. Annabelle did provided a rubber mat for the shower floor upon request.

The decking area was a nice inclusion and provided a peaceful environment with nice views. The bed was huge and very comfortable, there is a radiator which you can adjust for the more chilly nights.

We would have ideally like to be able to move the TV to a more comfortable viewing position, but we managed.

If you are a walker, I would recommend using Monument Road, which starts just between you and the pub and comes out at the bottom by the ferry terminal. For me it was a 45 minute walk, but I was taking it easy. Driving - it becomes less than a three minute drive.

There are a few take-aways that deliver that you can find on hungry house, but we did eat at the Wallhampton Arms as it is a carvery pub and the food was very nice. There is also the Wagon & Horses, which is more of a locals pub, but best to drive there as the roads aren't safe (no pavements).

Very enjoyable holiday, made to feel welcome but left in peace. Breakfast delivered every day included Toast, Croissants, Fruit, Yoghurt and coffee. Annabelle will need to be advised of what your bread requirements are (brown or white) as she makes it herself the night before.

If you like peace and quiet this is a good choice, we would definitely return.

“Idyllic retreat, perfect host, even better than we could have wished for.”
Reviewed 28 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From the photos, the Studio by the Sea looked like the perfect place for a short break in the New Forest. In person, it was even better. Annabelle was a wonderful host who would go above and beyond for her guests. The Studio was beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and in a fantastic location to wander around the New Forest, walk the streets of Lymington, or hop on a ferry to the Isle of Wight (which we did one evening for dinner).

Breakfast each morning was delicious, and we were lucky enough with the weather to eat outside and enjoy the view.

Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer, but we will definitely be back! Couldn't recommend more highly.

“Perfect luxury retreat B&B”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend. Lovely, stylish room with a small kitchen and ensuite. Very clean and beautifully appointed. I loved the fact that it's separate from the house so you get your own privacy and can come and go as you please yet you have the treat of a yummy breakfast delivered to your door. Annabelle was wonderful, really helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

We stayed here end of May.

Had an amazing experience from the moment we booked.

The studio is perfect and Annabelle was so lovely, she made us feel very welcome and the breakfast was just amazing!

Beautiful surroundings, really good information booklet in the room with things to do places to eat ect.

Really couldn't have asked for a better get away.

Will definitely be back

“Amazing, relaxing break!”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Great, relaxing stay with my wife and 3 month old son. The facilities were fantastic and we felt so at home. Lovely surroundings and our host Annabelle was brilliant and left us to relax. Breakfast was delivered to us each morning and was delicious! We will be back again, thanks so much Annabelle!
