  • "Lovely cottage just downhill of the owner’s home in a beautiful rural location just outside the village."

    Friendly owners couldn’t have been more helpful & the property is very dog friendly - garden is unfenced but surrounding fields are available for exercising the dog off the lead as long as it’s recall is good & no horses are present. Small kitchen is quirky but has all the necessary hardware to cook meals for 2 guests. There are plenty of good pubs in easy driving distance of the property. A lovely place to spend a relaxing break in Hampshire.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide such lovely feedback and we're delighted that you enjoyed a relaxing break at The Garden Studio. We hope to welcome you again soon. Property Owner

  • "We had the most relaxing wonderful time at the Studio."

    There are steps up to the property but they are wide and were not a problem I was worried about the kitchenette from previous reviews but actually found it easier to use than some kitchens I’ve had to use it has everything you need.The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom has a lovely shower and bath. The tv is a good size and has freesat. You are surrounded by fields which our dog loved and a short walk into the village. The owners are friendly and very helpful. Can thoroughly recommend

  • "The Garden Studio is an absolute gem."

    It is situated in the most quiet and beautiful setting. We enjoyed many lovely walks through the nearby woods and common. The Garden Studio is comfortable and warm, and we were more than happy for the month that we stayed there. The kitchen facilities are small however, we were able to cook many delicious meals using the oven top cooker, and managed perfectly well. The hosts are charming and kind, and offered lots of assistance should we need it. We kept our dog on the lead when in the garden as we didn’t trust her not to chase a pheasant of rabbit onto the nearby road! I would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

  • "The listing photographs don’t show how near and overlooked you are by the owners."

    However, the owners were very nice. There is a field to walk your dog, but it does have 3 horses in it. That’s fine but one was very lively and did take an interest in our little dog - chasing him. Overall, the accommodations were adequate and actually a very good standard for a dog friendly cottage. We’ve had some very nasty dog friendly cottages, so we were pleasantly surprised. The cooking situation is very novel!

    Thank you for your feedback with regards to your stay at The Garden Studio. It's great to hear your had a lovely time and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Property Owner

    Beautiful views and wildlife . Very comfortable stay . Unfortunately the kitchen area is very small but managed a few basic meals . The garden could do with dog profing as dogs can escape over the small barrier into the fields . Sarah and Chris are lovely , helpful hosts and very nice people . All in all a great breakaway .!

  • "The accommodation fully met our expectations and requirements."

    Spacious living / dining / kitchenette area which contained all that we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen facilities are limited but more than adequate to prepare simple meals. The bedroom was equally comfortable and roomy with plenty of cupboard space to allow the unpacking of suitcases. The bathroom has both bath and shower. Selborne is a pretty village surrounded by beautiful countryside, ancient woodlands and much wildlife. There are no shops but Whites Cafe come shop sell the basics and I personally highly recommend their homemade frozen meals.

  • "Even though the property is located quite close to the owners home, the location is lovely, especially for walks."

    On the evening of arrival we decided to go out for dinner, there was only enough hot water for one modest shower, second shower was cold for my wife, we had to leave the emmersion heater running there on. Received a phone call the night prior to departure asking us to vacate by 9am, when the listing clearly states 10am, the reason given was 'due to Covid', she said it was on the listing and that Sykes were aware, it wasn't, still isn't and I assume they aren't. When we politely said no, explaining we had planned to leave by 9.30' (very reasonable), the owner asked if she could come in and collect towels and sheets etc before that!, again we had to politely decline! a little privacy as your showering, packing etc is fair normal!? This felt intrusive and totally unnecessary, surely the listed 6 hours is enough time to air and clean!? We felt rushed at time of departure because of this. Furniture and random items are very random and untidy looking. Mattress desperately needs replacing, sofa needs work or cleaning, the nasty looking cover hiding stained seats wasn't welcoming. Carpet has seen much better days. Slightly dirty cups and other items, had to clean them our selves, which led us to think we should clean all utensils we might use (especially during these times), this led us to basically sanitise the property ourselves as we weren't sure if other items and surfaces had received a high standard of cleaning. A comically old and worn looking kettle. For the price of £270 a night, we expected better to be honest, it would have gone unmentioned if not for the unreasonable phone call the night before departure. Frankly the listed photos show the property at its best, probably many years ago. Shame because the setting is lovely.

    The cottage was just perfect for us and enabled us to relax. Pleasant walk to village over the fields with lunch at Selborne arms and a visit to Gilbert whites house and garden with home cooked meal and own brewed beer in whites cafe. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Cottage was very clean and well maintained, all in all a very pleasant week away. Great for visiting surrounding area particularly liked Farnham and Bills restaurant.

    We are so pleased you were finally able to get away and that the cottage was perfect for you! Property Owner

  • "The Cottage exceeded our expectations as the photos do not reveal how spacious the accommodation actually is."

    Despite having some things removed due to Covid-19 restrictions the facilities were as good, if not better, than we anticipated. The views were fabulous and the location, although in the countryside, was a 10 minute walk from the local pub, shop and other facilities. There are many walks from the cottage of which we only sampled one, but the owner provided information on the many options available. The furnishings were excellent and the cottage was very comfortable. The owner lives a short distance from the cottage and was very welcoming and friendly.

    Owners live next door and are very helpful but never intrusive. Very clean and comfortable with lots of space for two or three people. The smaller bedroom has low ceilings and is entered via the main double bedroom but would suit a child. The kitchenette is tiny but we were able to cook full meals. The mini-oven is surprisingly good - it heats up quickly and cooks evenly right up to 220 deg C. Excellent shower. No washing machine but there is a drying rack which fits in the bath so hand-washing was easy. The storage heaters kept us cosy.

    The studio suited us perfectly for the long term stay - it was clean, warm and well equipped. Mrs Robinson was very helpful and accommodating (they let me keep my rabbits in the garage).

  • "The garden studio was just what we wanted, a stylish, cosy place for two within walking distance of an old friend who lives in Selborne."

    The photos available nowadays and the reviews are a great help in choosing somewhere to stay, in this case we had no idea how close to the house we were until we arrived but that was not a problem at all and we did not feel overlooked, plus we could park very close to the Studio ( we do not travel light however much we try ). Altogether a very nice place to stay, we hope to go again.

  • "The great advantages of the Garden Studio are that it's comfortable, it has lovely views onto the wooded hills above Selborne, it's within easy walking and driving distance of the village amenities, it's surrounded by wonderful walks, a few of them directly from the cottage, and the owner is warmly welcoming and helpful."

    The living room and main bedroom are comfortable and spacious; the small second bedroom (which we didn't use) would suit a child; and the bathroom is also spacious and works well. The kitchen facilities are limited and are part of the living room: they were absolutely fine for us for breakfasts, snacks and heating up quiches or eating cheese and crackers for our meal. The patio is small but well-sheltered and has that lovely view towards the hill. Parking is safe and easy. Walking distance is about 15 minutes to Selborne: the road is narrow with high hedges for a while so it's a lot nicer to go across the fields and along a woodland path. The only snag here is having to duck under a few fences, again no problem to us but perhaps to some people. The area is wonderful for walks: Selborne Common is an ancient and extensive woodland on the nearby hill; Noar Hill is an enchanting nature reserve of flower-filled meadows and woodland; and there are beautiful stretches on the Hampshire Hangar walk from Petersfield to Hawkley and onto Selborne and Alton. The Gilbert White Museum and Oates Collection in the village is well worth a half day's visit and there are other attractions nearby. The village amenities include the Selborne Arms, which does pretty good food and has a very nice garden; the Selborne Tea Shop, with delicious cream teas, and a local shop for the basics. We look forward to returning to Selborne for another holiday and hope to stay at the Garden Studio again!

  • "Bed, bath/shower/heating/lighting great!"

    Even though we knew the ‘little kitchenette & cooker were small' I found it all perfect for our needs. In particular, the little oven was brilliant - I cooked a small roast boneless chicken joint, roast potatoes, pigs in blankets for our xmas lunch on it (I wasn't sure if the oven temperature would be OK so started a lot earlier than I would have, so ended up having lunch a lot sooner than planned as oven was brilliant!).
