I could honestly not fault this wonderfully modern B&B or it's accommodating hosts. Breakfast was uber fresh and delicious. One of the highlights of our trip was having a good ol' gas over breakfast with our hosts. They made us feel so welcome and like we've known them for years! I could not recommend this B&B more.

We spent a long time trying to think of something our hosts had forgotten, it was a wasted effort, they had thought of everything! Whenever we have to visit Poole we try to stay here. Carol also remembers individual idiosyncrasies and is a step ahead of most requests or needs. Definitely 5 star.

My partner and I stayed here for the night whilst on our way to Cornwall, but we liked it so much it was a shame to leave! Being greeted by rescued hens was a treat and the modern gardens are beautiful. Our room was very welcoming and well-presented. The Lush toiletries were a bonus and we got a great night's... More

When I was told the premises were built 6 years ago I was shocked , it looked like it was just finished. The host and hostess were terrific... More

Our trip to Poole was perfect thanks to the beautiful b&b. The hospitality, facilities, cleanliness and food were 10/10. Highly recommended! Will definitely be back when in the area next :) Our first choice!
