“A welcoming house for all seasons”
Reviewed 9 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Having previously enjoyed a summer visit, I have to say that The White House worked just as well in the winter. We watched the rugby in the cosy sitting room with a real log fire burning, enjoyed a great meal in the spacious, well equipped kitchen and because it is so conveniently located we could go out as a group but also had the flexibility for some to meet up later and do their own thing. Since I first stayed, there have been improvements including a new kitchen, and double glazing this time. I like the original art work and personal touches that make The White House feel like a warm and welcoming home. The White House more than lives up to its description on the site. The bed was comfy, I slept like a log and returned much refreshed.

“Didn't want to go home!!!”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Currently sitting in the lovely kitchen at the White House having a final coffee before leaving. Had a fantastic stay, house is beautifully decorated with everything you need for a comfortable stay. 6 friends stayed and there was plenty of space - lovely large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms so no queuing :-) Will definitely be booking again!!!

“Wonderful House - Perfect Break”
Reviewed 11 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Really lovely home. Everything you could need. We had fantastic weather which meant we could enjoy lovely secluded garden and local paths down to the beach. All the rooms large and comfortable. Lots of room for family to spread out and fantastic kitchen for meals, chats and games (supplied!). Would strongly recommend. Excellent location too. Only used car a couple of times as short walk into town and easy access to steam train (for Corfe), open-top busses to Bournemouth (it was warm) and lots to do locally. A great stay all round.

“great house”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

enjoyed our stay very much . excellent position and very well equipped. very clean no wifi while there as having problems with it . was not to much of a problem for us . tv signal a bit temperamental which could be a problem if wanting to watch a whole program.think this due to the exceptionally high winds though . but a great house would go again

I have just ordered BT broadband and the Sports package starting end of November. This also means if we have another storm we can still watch TV !

I travelled with 5 adults and two young children. The house was great. Lots of room. Bathroom for each family. Great kitchen for us all to eat together and comfortable lounge. Beds all comfortable and linen spotless. Shed had buckets and spades and we added some fishing nets. |Close to sandy beach, Would recommend to any group.
