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.

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.
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.
We are sorry but we ask that you do not smoke in The Garden Studio and, although we love animals, in the best interest of all our guests, we do not take pets.

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.
