"Spacious, classy accomodation in superb location"
This was our fourth stay in this capacious house. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms are ideal for our children and grandchildren. The house is very well equipped and decorated and has been consistently upgraded. It is situated in a quiet leafy side street with its own parking for two cars. The location is superb, a couple hundred yards from the sandy beech and a short walk to the town center. If only the weather was as reliable!

"Lovely home - lovely location!"
We had a fantastic weekend at the White House. The house is very spacious with great high ceilings and calm, neutral decor. Fantastically comfy couches with log fire, huge kitchen table to spend hours eating around, and large bedrooms with plenty of storage. The house just has a great feel to it, and is only a few minutes walk to the beach and on into Swanage. Sian is a fantastic host, even leaving out a bottle of wine for us upon our arrival! Would highly recommend.

"great house and brilliant location for beach/walking holidays"
I have stayed at the White House twice, once on a tennis/walking holiday and this September with the whole family, grandparents and grandchildren. Both worked really well. The bedrooms are light and spacious with really comfortable beds. The walls are so thick I wasn't disturbed by the rest of the family. The kitchen is very sociable with a large table and window seat. We spent most of our evenings there. I loved getting up and having an early morning walk along the beach-it's close. My sister can't walk very far so this was ideal. We did other beautiful walks from the doorstep. The house and its location are both great and I will definitely be going back.
