We stayed at Oakside for 3 nights from June 12th. The setting is very pretty with a beautiful outlook. Fields, horses and we even watched a woodpecker at the bird table one breakfast time.
Upon our arrival Ruth and Mark warmly greeted us with a cuppa and a wonderful slice of Ruths homemade Dorset apple cake. We had a lovely chat and were made to feel really welcome.
Our bedfroom was very homely, the bed was so comfortable and we had a great nights sleep.
We had tea and coffee facilities in our room and every day Ruth would put a lovely tasty biscuit or cake treat on the tray.
Breakfast was absolutely wonderful. 5 star.
Ruth is a fabulous cook and she makes a fantastic breakfast. Attention to detail is second to none, there is everything you could wish for on Ruths breakfast table.
Ruth and Mark create this beautiful meal and then discreetly leave allowing you to enjoy your meal whilst taking in the amazing views from the breakfast table.
Mark was really helpful when we were trying to sort out places to visit in Dorset and he told us some very interesting facts about the area. He even lent us his map so we could find our way about easier.
We have stayed in a few B&B's over the years but this one is a little gem and by far the best we have ever stayed in.
In summary we would recommend staying at Oakside to anyone. It was the most comfortable, the most cleanest (everthing was absolutely spotless) B&B we have ever stayed in and Ruth and Mark make the stay so special because they care so much.
Thank you Ruth and Mark for your genuine hospitality, we just wish we had been able to stay longer. We will definately be returning when we are in the area again.
