The bright and sunny Studio is situated in a quiet and picturesque valley a mile from the award winning Bantham beach. The perfect retreat for couples or small family looking for a relaxed getaway near the sea. Max 4 people (its COSY with 4).
The Studio has a unique shabby chic decor, its one of a kind. With an open plan living space with breakfast bar and spacious balcony overlooking the valley, its beautiful setting and secluded location make it a perfect place to retreat to. Located in a valley with a handful of other houses and a 20 minute walk from the famous, award winning Bantham Beach, many guests book repeatedly each year because of its charm and location. *August - minumum 5 days booking*
The bedroom has its own balcony doors opening onto the valley and a skylight overhead for stargazing from bed. The living room has a pull out sofa bed for 2 people expanding the capacity to 4 people staying, though please note that the space is best suited for couples. The Studio is light and airy during the summer with lots of wild birds. Please note that cooking facilities are not extensive but certainly sufficient in the Studio. Have a look in the pictures so you can see what is available and know what to expect.
During the winter, it is snug, cosy and warm!

*** PLEASE CONSULT THE HOUSE MANUAL FOR ACCESS ONCE YOU HAVE BOOKED***
I spend a lot of time travelling and don't always have access to the internet meaning that booking the Studio is sometimes an automatic process. Guests get access to the Studio is independent, meaning that once you have booked and paid for your stay YOU WILL GET INFORMATION FROM AIRBNB WEBSITE ON HOW TO GET HOLD OF THE KEYS. There will not be anyone to meet you at the property. :)

I rent the property remotely and have a caretaker that looks after the Studio. The Studio is prepared for guests ahead of time and let themselves in with keys left at a designated location at the Studio. (More information once a booking is made.) Although I am available over the phone and internet, to help, I do not meet with guests. The caretaker does live locally, if there are any emergencies.
During the months of July and August things get very busy, so I will only be able to accept bookings that are 5 days or longer. Thanks!
There is a lovely cat that lives on the property called ' Ms Freida Miaow'. She is very friendly but a bit wild so she will bring back rabbits and mice to feed on... you've been warned!
There is plenty of heating and the Studio stays very warm, even in winter.
I'm regrettably no longer able to provide towels so need to ask guests to kindly bring their own. I will be able to provide tea cloths and bath mats though.
If you are looking for a simple and quiet retreat the Studio has everything you need. There are all the basics: oven, fridge, cooker, wifi, shower, etc. Please note that it doesn't have the following: there is no washing machine and there is little phone reception because of where we are in the valley. If you walk up the hill a short way you can get full connectivity.
I do my best to make sure the house is stocked with tea, coffee, milk and cereal for guests but this isn't always possible due to the gap between guests arriving and me not wanting to leave sour milk in the fridge! I'm working on getting that sorted.
Please look after The Studio as if it were your own place. When you're not visiting, its my home. Besides that, please enjoy your time there and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
