Updated: 06-Dec-2016
Beaches Studio in Milford on Sea, Lymington, New Forest, Hampshire, England - Peaceful Location Approx 5 Mins Walk to the Beach and Local Amenities - no need to use the car!!

"Beaches" is a contemporary bright studio offering light and airy accommodation with a feeling of tranquility The location is perfect - approx 5min walking distance from the village shops, beach, cafes, pubs, restaurants and village green. You can walk to Keyhaven where you will find a pretty pub and Keyhaven harbour. A ferry can be taken from here to Hurst Castle or if you are feeling energetic you can walk along the shingle bank; great for bird watchers who would enjoy the walk along the salt pans heading to Lymington. Or 10mins drive to Lymington with its Georgian architecture, pretty quay, individual shops and the bustling Saturday market. Just 15/20 mins drive from the New Forest, Beaulieu, Christchurch and only 35mins from Bournemouth with its long golden beautiful sandy beach.

About the Owner

Hi we are Bob and Sue and we have lived in Milford for 25yrs. Our house and studio is in an idyllic spot. We have a son Tom at University who enjoys rowing and daughter Isabella who is at college and is a mean netball player. We also have a couple of chickens which don't lay any eggs but are so pretty! We are always busy and both enjoy walking, and the village events i.e music and food festivals, local pubs and resturants. We all like to travel and love the warm weather but tend to go to Europe for some sun but always out of season as we have everything here within walking distance.

One week at beaches Studio

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in the studio at the end of June, which we found had everything we needed and was modern and spotless. It was in a great location, central to pubs, shops, cafes and the beach. There are loads of places to visit and some lovely walks, the walk to Lymington through the salt marshes was superb. Sue and Bob were absolutely lovely and couldn't have been any more welcoming or helpful. I would definitely recommend the studio and return in future, Karen and Paul

The Beaches Studio, Milford on Sea.

  • 5 of 5

The studio is well laid out, bright,comfortable and spotless.It was nice to have a patio for a breath of air. We were very fortunate with the weather which enabled us to sightsee around this very interesting area. We enjoyed the local walks by Sturt Ponds and around the woods just off the village green, no car needed! The village had several varied eating places from pubs to restaurants and we found it a friendly place. Two good general grocery stores too for essential supplies, loved the pork pies from Hollands! Further afield, the New Forest is nearby also Buckler's Hard , Hurst Castle is fascinating, we went on the ferry from Keyhaven but is walkable from the Studio. Our hosts, Sue and her daughter (didn't meet Mr.S.) were friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this delightful bolt hole to anyone.

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

Our initial short stay at this delightful Studio. It is clear that the adaption was completed in the last 2-3 years and the attention to detail in the internal decoration is worthy of a professional, making a small space light and airy. The shower room fittings are of excellent quality and the shower itself is an invigorating thermostatic model. Hosts were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Ideal location for wildlife, walks,scenery and eating. Special mention here for the Pebble Beach Restaurant in Barton.Exceptional!

With wild trout in Danestream . We'll be back.

From the Owner

The area offers so much. The area offers so much we have are own village green, butchers, grocers, launderette, hairdressers not to mention a variety of pubs, restuarants, cafes and the beach. Keyhaven has its own quay where you can launch your boat and the marshes which is great for bird watchers, artists and walkers. 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 golden sandy beach.We love people staying in our studio so they also can enjoy the fantastic facilities Milford has to offer. It offers light and airy accommodation with a feeling of tranquility

From the Owner

From Beaches studio we enjoy a lovley outlook of the shingle bank and The Isle of Wight we are south facing and are situated within walking distance of all the facilities 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, sit on the beach of an evening watch the sunset 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.
