We really enjoyed our stay for 2 nights stay. Lovely touch when you arrive to have cakes and tea. the breakfast was superb. I like tinned tomatoes and that is what I got with my 'BB' eggs, bacon and sausage, its an amazing choice for your breakfast. we really appreciated the lift to the wedding reception, definitely above the call of duty. I would highly recommend this BB.

Such an amazing B&B run by a wonderful couple, so many thoughtful little touches in the room that made my stay that extra special. Very yummy cooked breakfast with eggs from the B&B hens :-) and I can not forget the banana/walnut cake! Highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

We stayed for 4 nights over Easter. Rob and Carol as welcoming as ever, coffee and cakes and a good chat on arrival, plus introductions to the hens. Stayed in Sparrow, which is superbly comfortable with easy access to the wet room for my blind husband. Hand rails and a shower chair had been added as extras, which was a very thoughtful touch. Breakfast was excellent as always.

Really enjoyed our stay and will be back again next year. Lovely to sit in the garden at night and watch the hedgehog running around.

The White House is an ideal place to stay for visiting Dorset. We did lots of walking this time, and were really glad of the huge, comfortable bed to fall into at the end of the day, not to mention the freshly made cakes left in the room each day. Rob and Carol are superb hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they are good company. We are quite picky about where we stay, particularly as we have to consider whether the place is suitable for a visually impaired person, but we keep coming back to The White House, which is now one of our favourite places to stay, and would have no hesitation in given this our highest recommendation.

Room Tip: Sparrow is an excellent room with a wet room ideal for the elderly or disabled. It has a patio door...

Really impressed with the cleanliness and facilities of the room. Carol is a star and if you make sure she knows this - you get an extra sausage for breakfast !
Fresh eggs straight from the chickens outside. Would have no hesitation in recommending the White House. Book it..........

Excellent B &B, stayed one night on Good Friday and although full, when faced with my homeless son, Carol at the last minute put an extra bed in our room with no fuss. A good mixture of an easy going, relaxed atmosphere yet at the same time, completely professional. Lovely room and bathroom, spotlessly clean, good parking and dog friendly. Highly recommended.

We have just had a great weekend at The White House B&B, it was very clean, modern and well equipped. Carol was very welcoming, her home made cake was amazing, the breakfasts were excellent. The whole experience was faultless, we would not hesitate to recommend the White House to others.

Went to Poole for our 25th wedding anniversary and spent the loveliest week at the White House.What can we say that hasn't already been said. Carol and Robert really do think of everything to make your stay the best. The room was beautiful, the food great (John loved the cake) lovely people,wonderful funny stories over breakfast, great animal lovers, in fact our kind of people. Will recommend to everyone we know. Once again many thanks for everything, big kiss for Tom, Tibby and the chickies.xxx Robert hope your knee gets better soon.
