The perfect weekend AND a proposal.......!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just got home after a wonderful weekend at the Studio barn. Vincent was the perfect host right from the start (sadly Jane was away, but still sent us a welcome text the morning of our arrival) making sure we knew where everything was AND the added bonus of showing us his amazing collection of Lotus cars.

Roscoe the dog/bear was also part of the welcoming committee - what a total sweetheart he is!!

The studio has everything you need, it is immaculate and stylish - like a 5 star boutique hotel (but so much better!) and the use of space is outstanding.

On top of having a relaxing break from everything - this place will now always be part of 'our history' as my wonderful (now) Fiancé decided to use it as the location for his proposal - of course I said yes!!!

We can't wait to come back.......must check my diary......

Thank you again Jane & Vincent.

Nikki & Steve.

Another Perfect Stay in Tiptoe

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Tiptoe and yet again Jane, Vincent and Roscoe did us proud. The kids and our dog Tilly fell in love with Roscoe and Jane and Vincent where the perfect hosts. The accomadation was spotless with everything you need for the stay, and the location couldn't be better fir visiting not only the New Forest, but also the coast and the Isle of Wight. We will be back again for sure.

Fantastic and relaxing break

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place to stay, excellent accommodation and easy access to the surrounding New Forest and nearby beaches and attractions.

Jane and Vincent made us feel so welcome, yet the studio barn also offers plenty of privacy.

We stayed with our 14 month Basset Hound and we all fell in love with Rosco, such a great greeting and playmate for our pup - we could easily have stayed there each day and watched them play.

The accommodation is well thought out and has absolutely everything you need to feel at home.

We will definitely visit again and recommend to friends.

A hidden gem in the New forest

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what an amazing place to stay, the pictures really don't do it justice, a really beautiful barn, super clean, with all the facilities you want. A special mention, about the most amazingly comfortable bed, honestly out of this world.

Jane and Vincent were incredibly welcoming, friendly and helpful, which makes such a difference when staying somewhere.(we are tattooed with dreadlocks, some times get pre judged , but not here,:) ). it's setting is absolutely lovely, set in the New forest, so loads of walks near by. And their dog Rosco, he is super friendly and loved having him come and visit.

For a quiet retreat in beautiful setting, this really is the place for you.

Great mini break with our dogs

  • 5 of 5

The studio was absolutely gorgeous, attention to detail and quality of the barn and everything in it was outstanding. We loved having the use of the private field for early morning and evening runs with our dogs. Roscoe the Newfoundland made an excellent meet and greet, we paid him in treats!

Vincent and Jane also made us feel very welcome and are very laid back and easy going.

The studio has WiFi, even though not advertised, this place is an amazing find, in a great location and we will definitely be back and be telling our dog loving friends about you. Send me a link and I will happily let my customers at doggie day care also know about you.

Best wishes Sarah, Nigel, Fly, Missy Moo & Crumble

Tiptop in Tiptoe

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our 4th visit to Tiptoe - which speaks for itself!! The Studio apartment is first rate, very comfortable and in a peaceful location with easy access to the coast. Jane and Vincent are always welcoming, friendly and so accommodating. We love the countryside/forest walks and of course Rosko the friendly giant - he is so gentle for such a large dog. We are already sorting out dates for next year - can't wait to see Rosko again (sorry Vincent!!)
