The space

The Garden Studio provides beautifully appointed and well equipped, boutique accommodation for two people wishing for an independent base from which to visit River Cottage or explore the Jurassic Coast.

Part of a converted barn, separate from the main house, the Studio is on the ground floor and is one of two apartments with its own parking and entrance. You have all you need to cater for yourselves, with kitchenette, dining areas inside and out. Now with newly extended, luxurious ensuite bathroom with his/hers bath, separate walk-in shower and mood lighting, sumptuous king-size sleigh bed in solid oak. Cosy lounge area with two comfortable armchairs, coffee table and TV and Wifi. The quality Ruark sound system enables you to listen to your own music via Bluetooth.

With large patio doors, The Studio overlooks our pretty, bright, courtyard garden and guests have exclusive use of an outdoor patio area in which you can sit and breakfast ‘al fresco’. Many of our guests talk about relaxing in the evening, with a glass of wine, listening to the birds and gentle running water of our fountain, the central focus of this walled garden.

Guest access

The Garden Studio has its own front door adjacent to its private parking area. It is situated in a building separate to the main house, connected by a covered walkway, forming part of a picturesque courtyard garden.

We love to welcome our guests on arrival so that we can help with information about the local area or other queries you may have. Equally, we are happy to leave The Studio unlocked and for you to arrive at your leisure. If you need anything, you just need to message us, or come and knock on our front door, and we will do our best to help.

Interaction with guests

We live on site and are on hand to help you with information and recommendations about local sites and amenities. However, The Garden Studio has its own independent access and most of our guests choose to stay here because of the privacy and tranquility we offer.

Other things to note

The Garden Studio is fully equipped to cater for yourselves. We supply ingredients for a perfect, country breakfast - fresh eggs from our chickens, filter coffee, cereals, milk etc.

Although spacious, the Studio has low celings 6ft5 in height.

We have another studio let, Lofty Hayes, above The Garden Studio. We have installed top quality sound proofing to ensure our guests are not disturbed by loud music or talking. However, both properties form part of a barn conversion and occasionally you may be aware of movement from guests above you.

Beautiful studio, carefully fitted out with everything you could need for a relaxing getaway. Excellent info provided on the local area, comfy bed and lovely outlook onto the courtyard garden with water feature. Door was left open for us on arrival and we were grateful for the lovely bath and extras left for us in the fridge. Thank you for the ideal stay - we will be back again.

My Wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the garden studio. The walk to Lyme Regis via the East Devon Way is beautiful, as is the Studio itself. Thanks for having us and we may see you again.

Exactly as advertised. Idyllic location and hosts think of your every need. Spotlessly clean. Bed is incredibly spacious and comfy. Ignore any concerns over head height- partner is 6'3! We hope to be back soon.

The Garden Studio is a little piece of paradise. A beautiful and efficient use of space that opens into a gorgeous garden complete with fountain! The bathroom is ultra modern and the tub is pretty amazing. It is peaceful here and offered us a necessary respite after 4 weeks of intensive touring through the U.K. We took the lovely 2-mile walk into Lyme, which was not only extremely manageable but beautiful. Kate was lovely and had fresh scones waiting for us on arrival along with some great provisions. Loved it!

Easy access to Lyme Regis both on foot and driving as well as access to the beautiful area of East Devon & West Dorset . Would recommend without hesitation and definitely look to rebook when back in the area

Hi! I'm married to Mike and we have 5 (lovely and very responsible!) children aged from nineteen to ten. We live in a popular, little, seaside town on the south west coast of England. We are very involved in our local community - in the church and local schools.

Every Friday, we are preoccupied getting our neighbouring holiday home ready for our next guests. It sleeps 12 and has an indoor pool, so is very popular with multi-generational family reunions (grandparents, parents and kids!). We also enjoy meeting the couples who rent our two apartments - The Garden Studio and Lofty Hayes, which overlook our pretty courtyard garden. Being hosts, we know how important it is to look after the accommodation we stay in and we are always looking for tips as to how we can improve our own accommodation!

As a family, we love the sea and the mountains and all the activities that go with them - sailing, skiing, mountain biking etc.
