5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Very comfortable single room, the breakfasts were magnificent - really set me up for the day. The location was ideal for touring the Purbeck area with many National Trust places easily accessible. Ruth and Mark were most welcoming and helpful with suggestions for places of special interest. I would certainly recommend Oakside.

This was our third stay at Oakside, having stayed here twice the previous year. It's now almost a home from home, though I wish my own home was as lovely as this. Ruth and Mark are great hosts and make you feel very welcome. Spotlessly clean rooms, though admittedly a little on the small side. Home made cakes and bread and a quiet location. Lovely breakfasts. Ruth even made a surprise birthday cake for me! Needless to say, we'll be back again.

This place is fantastic, I'm so glad we found it. The location is quiet and surrounded by beautiful countryside, and for us the ideal base to visit the many bird-watching sites along this part of the Dorset coast. Mark and Ruth were wonderfully welcoming and seemed to have anticipated our every need. The bed was very comfortable, room facilities excellent, and the breakfast was delicious, including home-make bread and fresh fruit salad. Really, the best B&B we have stayed at for a very long time!

We found this place to be comfortable and homely with a welcome from delightful hosts. Facilities were first class. The warmth of the lounge was especially welcome in a time of very cold weather.
'Oakside' is well positioned for visits to Kingston Lacy (NT), Poole and Bournemouth as well as the RSPB Reserve at Arne.
We look forward to a return visit later in the year..

Room Tip: The suite with the king size bed was a luxury.

We were so glad that you had an enjoyable stay. We love living in an area where there are so many things to see and do throughout the year.

Thank you for your warm comments; and the good thing about being a bird watcher is that each season sees so many new visitors to our shores.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Mark and Ruth

I stayed here for a couple of nights as I had a business meeting at Holton Heath industrial area. Ruth and Mark were wonderful hosts, and on our arrival we were offered high tea with home made Dorset apple cake, yummy indeed! Ruth and Mark made us feel right at home a lovely couple.

Full english breakfast with homemade sourdough bread a first for me, again extremely yummy! The breakfast room overlooks a horse paddock and you can watch the wildlife, lots of birds, from your breakfast table. Idyllic location with two fabulous host, who were both extremely attentive to our needs. Would recommend this B&B for a stop over or a longer stay.

Great hosts and a very comfortable, well organised house. Breakfasts fit for a king! I wrote in their guest book that it felt like I was visiting family. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Even though the weather was very bad outside, inside was warm and comfortable. Ruth and Mark were very welcoming hosts.

A lovely warm, comfortable and welcoming place to stay. Ruth and Mark were perfect hosts and the tea and home made cake on arrival after a long drive was very welcome! Breakfast was first class too. A quiet and attractive location away from the road with ample parking immediately outside. I only stayed for one night but would love to return for a longer stay. I can highly recommend Oakside.

John, we are delighted that you enjoyed your brief stay -- so sorry the weather wasn't ideal for your photography in the Purbecks; when it is more clement, we hope you will be able to return to take full advantage of your expertise in photographing these special landscapes. Ruth and Mark
