This is an excellent B&B in fact I think it’s more the standard of a Boutique Hotel than a Bed and Breakfast. From the moment you pass over the threshold of what looks like a normal suburban house you enter a sumptuous quality establishment with more in common with Hotel Du VIN than a standard bed and breakfast. I stayed in the Red Room and was astonished at the attention to detail and quality. The “wet room” or bathroom was the size I would expect most hotel rooms for this price to be, a huge monsoon walk in shower and romantic free standing bath and two beautiful sinks. The standard and location of this room would make it an idea romantic hideaway. Putting aside the brilliant standard of furnishings and quality feel throughout the hotel it was the small touches that elevate this Boutique B&B from outstanding to astonishing, QI annuals and engaging books in the bathroom, homemade fudge and cakes beautifully gift wrapped by the bed side, Egyptian cotton bedding, outstanding locally sourced breakfast and non fussy and convivial host. Not only would I recommend this venue as a business stop over but I would also say there would be no better standard B&B to use as a base to explore the Purbeck or Poole area, but please keep it a secret, it would be a shame if I couldn’t return because it was fully booked.

We stayed for a two night break during our first trip to Dorset. We were overwhelmed by the welcome, hospitality, friendliness, attention to detail, cleanliness, quality of rooms fixtures / fittings etc, those "little touches" - fudge, cookies, fresh milk in fridge (never known that before in a b&b!!) etc. We had an excellent breakfast on both days - full English with locally sourced produce - Jills Dads tomatoes (I am now a convert to toms!) & her Mums raspberry jam.
Jill gave us expert advice for the local eateries. We went to the Goods Yard (trad pub) & Francos Italian restaurant. Both were v good.
Last but not least there was Barney the dog. I think Jill should keep a close eye on him as we are not the first visitors who wanted to adopt him!!
The best B & B we have ever stayed in. Need i say more.

We stayed in the Mellow Yellow room - a lovely room with a big and comfy bed, stylish decor and luxury in-suite.
Pine Ridge is located in a quiet area but with a few Good places to eat. We tried an Indian restaurant - Mango. Really nice!
So that B&B was perfect for an overnight stay during our weekend trip in Dorset.

We had a separate 2 night stay going and returning from Jersey. Pineridge is the ultimate place to stay, forget the fancy 5 star hotels, jill makes them pale in contrast to her lovely home. With the added entertainment from Barney, and with the lovely rooms with the personal touches, and great breakfasts - especially the fresh tomatoes grown by Jill's Dad!
Cannot praise enough, definately the best ever place we have ever stayed at .

We stayed here for two nights to break up our journey from Cornwall back to London. Stayed in the Blue Room. Pine Ridge is the very personal vision of its owner Jill to give the very best in Bed and Breakfast and customer service from her experience in owning a pub and in hospitality. She searched for a suitable property, found it, bought it, worked with builders to develop it and has put her heart and soul into it. The result is fantastic. Loved the attention to detail everywhere and that she is still working to improve Pine Ridge even further for us customers by changing the floor covering to a specific wood in the dining room/lounge !

It's within easy walk to a few restaurants and a gasto pub in Broadstone, and 5 minutes drive to Poole. Bournemouth is around 10 mins away. Safe off street car parking on the driveway.

We loved the room, Jill's high standards throughout, the full english breakfast, free wifi in the room, good quality soaps in the bathroom, fudge and cookies in the bedroom, fresh clean white linen on the bed, soft white towels, competitive rates, the desk in our room to work from and that nothing is too much trouble.

Room Tip: All are of a lovely standard. Red room we spied has a roll top bath.
