“Warm contemporary, stunning bedroom, beautiful garden, home made cake on arrival who could ask for more!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2010

My daughter and I stayed at the White House in Dorchester Road Upton for two nights in June for a surprise family event, we were so impressed straight away we rebooked for another event in July!
The B & B is approached via a beautiful garden with home grown vegetables rabbits and wooden decking over water to front door. The White House itself is contemorary in style but warm and inviting at the same time. We were shown to our bedroom called the blackbird room which is a great room with very large double bed, plenty of wardrobes and a wide screen TV much to my daughters execitement. The bathroom en-suite is ultra modern and extremely clean,
Breakfast was as promised all organic and locally sourced produce. We have no hesitation in recommending The While House to anyone looking for a comfortable stay within easy reach of Poole, Wareham, Corfe Castle, Dorchester etc.

From the moment that we arrived we realised that we were visiting a B and B that was not your usual 'run of the mill'. The gardens are laid out with ponds and water features and colour co-ordinated throughtout with the red theme that continues on into the house. We were lucky to arrive on a beautiful summers afternoon and the poppies were infull bloom.
Our welcome was a 5star one - Carol led us up to 'Blackbird' room and when she opened the door I said 'WOW' which is quite unusual for me as I've stayed all over world and am not easily surprised. The room was immaculate and the bathroom was of a very high standard. We were given tea and cake in the garden, although the te making facilities in the bedroom were also generaous with cake and fresh milk available.
The bed was huge and extremely comfortable - we both slept like logs. Breakfast was bespoke - you could have a full English but Carol also offers a huge range of combinations and prides herself on the provinance of the ingredients - you can read about some of the farms, shops etc where the food is purchased. We were lucky that it was such glorious weather and we ate our breakfast outside.
Carol and her husband Rob were really friendly and welcoming.
Only one diasppointing thing about our stay ---- it just wasn't long enough and we are already looking forward to the next visit!!!

The establishment was of a very high standard in cleanliness and general apperance.
Breakfast was cooked to order with organic and locally sourced produce.
Nothing was too much trouble for are two hosts.
We will be back, i'm sure of that.

Wow ! Not what we expected from a B&B. From the moment we drove in and walked through the designer front garden, we realised that this was going to be better than the usual B&B. The whole place has been built to very exacting standards, and everything is beautifully co-ordinated in red and black, including the front garden. The breakfast was excellent and the hosts were superb. Where else do you get Sky+ in the bedroom ? So many wonderful personal touches that made our whole weekend very enjoyable.

Carol was the perfect host and made us feel at home instantly.Her breakfasts were excellent and so were her home made cakes which were put in our room every day.Rooms were excellent.It was more like being at home than a B&B.Will certainly recommend and go back when in the area again.Perfect location for touring Dorset. Thank you Carol for a wonderful stay and making our holiday complete.

We stayed here for two nights when we attended a friends wedding. Without a doubt this is the best B&B we have stayed in and certainly deserves it’s top rating. The atmosphere is very relaxing and there are lots of really nice touches such as the ‘Lush’ toiletries, the delicious homemade cakes and the locally sourced breakfast products. The house is real ‘grand designs’ style and a lot of thought has obviously gone into it. Carol and Rob made us feel very welcome. We would certainly stay here again and would have no hesitation in recommending the ‘White House’.
