A really lovely place to stay. The owners, Hazel and Keith are extremely friendly and helpful, and from chatting with them it appears that a lot of their guests return again and again. I have to say we will probably do likewise. You really can't fault the place, the rooms are kept to a fantastic standard and the breakfast set... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the lovely The Woodside B&B. Nice and well equipped rooms, a cosy sphere as one expect it from a typical B&B. Hazel and Keith are perfect hosts with loads of good hints what to do and what to see in Bournemouth and the whole Jurassic Coast. Real home made breakfast is standard and so... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Woodside and Keith & Hazel could not have been nicer people. I really liked our chats about the midlands and the room itself was excellent (a really comfortable bed!). I'm already looking forward to a return visit later in the year.
