About Sue Springbett

Hi we are Bob and Sue and we have lived in Milford for 25yrs. Our house and studio, we think, is in an idyllic spot. We have enjoyed bringing our children up here, our son Tom now lives in Oxford and is a rowing/sports coach, he enjoys cycling and surfing. Our daughter Isabella is at university in Oxford and is a mean netball player. We are always busy, I am a fitness colour consultant and Bob is involved with Hurst Castle. We both enjoy walking, cycling and the village events i.e music and food festivals, local pubs and resturants. We all like to travel and love the warm weather, we tend to go to Europe for some sun but always out of season as we have everything here within walking distance.

Sue Springbett purchased this apartment in 1997

Why Sue Springbett chose New Forest

The area offers so much we have are own village green, (Local events) butchers, deli, grocers, hairdressers, beautician not to mention a variety of pubs, restuarants, cafes and the beach. Keyhaven has its own quay where you can launch your boat and take a ferry to Hurst castle or Yarmouth, IOW, when in season. We have the marshes which is great for bird watchers, artists and walkers alike. There are plenty of walks and things to do in Milford. In the area we are 20 mins from the New Forest and the main Brockenhurst Train Station. We are only 35mins from Bournemouth which boast a lively main town with shops theatres nightclubs and resturants galore. As well as a long golden sandy beach.

We love people staying in our studio so they also can enjoy the fantastic facilities Milford has to offer. The studio offers light and airy accommodation with a feeling of tranquillity, a perfect base all on ground level.

What makes this apartment unique

From Beaches studio we enjoy a lovley outlook of the shingle bank and the Isle of Wight, we are south facing and this is an excellent base all on ground level. We are situated within walking distance of all the facilities that Milford has to offer. If you fancy a pub meal and a few drinks- no taxis needed here. You may like to pick up fish and chips, and sit on the beach of an evening and watch the sunset go down and just meander back. Or get dressed up and visit some of are nice resturants and walk back. Or simply stay in and enjoy a takeaway and sip wine on your patio. We offer off road parking outside the studio and arrangements can be made on request to collect and return from Brockenhurst or local train stations.

Lovely hideaway on the South coast

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented studio which has everything you need for a lovely break at any time of the year. Great restaurants close by and a nice coastal town with refreshing walks along the spit to Hurst Castle and many other places. Sue was the font of all current local knowledge and very welcoming (even left some delicious scones as a greeting). Would definitely recommend.

Very nice, albeit not by the beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice clean little room, bed-sit style. Furnishing and equipment fine. Plenty to do nearby, good walks and scenery. No complaints. About 10 mins walk down to the sea.

Wonderful lil place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at The Beaches Studio - we received a warm welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The studio is light and airy giving us everything we needed for a weeks stay. Having an outside space was a real bonus and there is so much happening in Milford

Would definitely recommend and book again

Fabulous accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property - it is beautifully decorated, very cosy and provided everything we needed. It is in a perfect location to explore and we did a beautiful walk on Saturday around Keyhaven Marshes and the coastal path. We came for the weekend in February as we wanted to see what it was like in the middle of winter as we hope to move to the area. The sun shone, it was warm and we met some lovely people - what more could we want!
