“First Class B&B”
Reviewed 23 June 2012

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.

We spent two nights at this establishment and found it clean and extremely good value. The hosts are particularly pleasant and helpful and eager to showcase their beautiful area. Full marks too for the excellent breakfast - one of the best we had on a three week trip in England!

On arrival, Ruth and Mark greeted us with a cuppa and a slice of Dorset Cake. The en-suite accommodation, facilities and location were first class. Mark and Ruth were excellent hosts and Ruth treated us to lovely breakfasts during our stay, with daily room treats of home-made cakes and biscuits. We visit Dorset often and would have no hesitation in staying at the Oakside B&B again.

Very warm welcome from Ruth and Mark. The bedroom was ensiute and was done to a very high standard. The breakfast was substantial and very tasty. The owners were attentive but not intrusive. The location was ideal for visiting the southcoast/Dorset/New Forest area.
All together an outsatnding B&B. We will definately be back.

I needed a bed and breakfast place for one night in the vicinity of Wareham and I found this establishment by searching on Google maps. What a find it was!
Located a couple of miles outside of the town of Wareham and easy to find just off of the A351 this was a truly great B&B.
I arrived mid afternoon to be greeted by the husband and wife who own this quiet secluded property. I was treated to tea and some lovely home made cake.
My single room was exactly as shown on their web site being quiet small but totally suitable for a short stay and appropriate for the tarrif charged. The bed was comfortable and I had a good nights sleep.
The next morning I was treated to one of the best breakfasts I have ever had at a B&B. It was very generous in portions and beautifully presented.
I was made to feel very welcome here and treated extremely well.
So all in all I can unequivicably recommend this establishment for a great B&B stay.

I stayed here before a very important audition and was very happy with everything. My welcome to Oakside by Mark was amazing was offered a Cup of tea and a lovely piece of homemade cake. Me and Mum had a lovely chat with the owner Mark and then was shown to our room and I was very pleased with the room it was very clean and tidy, I was really impressed on how the room was presented very Modern and Clean.

Mark and Ruth should be very pleased with their B&B they have an amazing thing going, keep up the excellent work. Thanks Very Much :D
