“Excellent”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We came here for our first break with our 7 week old daughter and it was fantastic. Beautifully appointed room that is private (and detached which is good if you have a little one) and Annabelle provides great advice on eating places near by. The breakfast brought to your door at a time specified by you is also fantastic. Short walk into Leamington which has many eating / drinking options. We had a 7 week old and I would specifically recommend, but by no means exclusively, for others in the same circumstance. Your drive right to your door, don't have to negotiate stairs, lifts, receptions etc or worry that some crying is keeping the room next door awake. Travel cot also provided. Annabel gives you complete privacy but always available for advice /
help.

“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

we have just had 4 days in Lymington in the New Forrest, a lovely part of the world. We stayed in the studio by the sea and what a find this turned out to be, comfortable, charming, and delicious breakfast hamper delivery every morning. Annabelle could not have been more helpful, very friendly but not at all intrusive, the perfect host. We would certainly recommend the studio to any of our friends

“Immaculate accommodation in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We've just returned from a lovely two-night stay at Studio by the Sea and would highly recommend it. Annabelle is a great hostess - extremely welcoming and helpful but allowed us complete privacy at the same time. The accommodation itself is fantastic - like staying in a top notch hotel room but in the privacy of your own annexe. It's beautifully done up and extremely comfortable with a super king-size bed. Annabelle appeared at a pre-arranged time on each morning with a tray of fresh orange juice and fresh fruit and yoghurt, as well as a basket of delicious, warm pastries and croissants - a real treat. The location is a stone's throw from Lymington and the New Forest so plenty to see and do, and there's a great gastropub a 10 minute walk from the Studio which was a real bonus. We'll be back in the future!

“A perfect Get-away”
Reviewed 14 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A lovely Annex separate from the main house.

Beautifully decorated, modern and clean. Bed is very comfortable and pillows dreamy.

Breakfast, perfect fresh baked hot breads, pastry, ripe fruits (not just apples, oranges etc), teas and coffee. delivered to us in the studio. outside area looking over fields and woodland to enjoy breakfast if the sun is out.

We would not usually take a B&B as we like our own space and don't feel comfortable in other peoples houses. Annabelle is the perfect host and is available when needed but our privacy was well respected.

Surroundings perfect, plenty to do, nice pubs and restaurants within walking distance. beaches a drive away.

We will defiantly return.

“Excellent b&b in Lymington”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed at Studio by the Sea in Lymington after having seen the excellent reviews on trip-advisor. We were not disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly and welcoming Annabelle who also provided great advice on local restaurants and walks. The studio was clean and well-decorated and the breakfast exceptional. There were many personal touches and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Highly recommended.

“Fabulous,Cosy & Homely Studio!”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Having arrived for a two night break at Studio by the Sea we were greeted by Annabelle who gave us a lovely welcome. The Studio was spotless and very homely. It came equipped with homemade New Forest soap in the bathroom and cereals, milk and water in the kitchen. The highlight was the breakfast, delivered each morning fresh to our door: pastries, toast, fresh fruit, jams, and juice - delicious! It was only a short walk in to Lymington where there were lots of lovely shops and places to eat. We would highly recommend The Studio!

“A real gem of a place for a long weekend”
Reviewed 31 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at Studio by the Sea for a long weekend. Annabelle couldn't have made our stay any more relaxing and pleasant! The studio is superbly furnished and extremely comfortable, warm and cosy. Breakfast was AMAZING, Annabelle hand-delivered it each day at a time we choose - in a basket with fresh pastries and juice, yogurts and fresh fruit salad. Having use of our own little kitchen was perfect too, with a selection of teas and coffees, milk and water already in the fridge, and luxury biscuits too, it was home from home!. This is one of the nicest independent places I have stayed in and far nicer than many larger hotels - I couldn't recommend the studio enough and we will definitely be back in the summer! Thank you Annabelle!
