We stayed here for one night on our way to Guernsey. We chose it because the white house takes dogs. We were greeted with tea and cakes. Our room was well presented with a welcome tray not only for us but also the dog. We asked if we could bring in fish and chips (shop opposite) whigh we could have... More

Stayed for one night in May and another in July - and what a treat! Greeted by the lovely Carol with a cuppa and cake while we joined in with a chat with her and professional builder husband Rob, who designed the property and stunning gardens. The rooms are luxurious, spacious and comfortable with large en suites and the fridge... More

The White House is the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. Carole, the owner, has made the best of both the interior and exterior of the house. Outside there are interesting water features, and landscaping. Inside the main room in the house has a lovely airy feel, being lit by large windows and skylights. Our bedroom was... More

The hosts were very friendly and talkative. The room was superb, with large comfortable bed, a TV, drawers, a desk, a chair, and even a small fridge. Bathroom was surprisingly big, with quality washing products. I had a delicious breakfast, in a spacious dining room. I can recommend The White House to anyone staying in Upton area.

Great service and friendly welcome - we were offered tea/coffee on arrival, which was served with delicious home-made cookie. Nothing was too much trouble - we were offered safe storage for our bikes on the evening we drove to Poole Harbour. Comfortable bed, very important! The room was as described on the website - not large, but spotlessly clean and... More

We managed to book two rooms at relatively short notice for a one night's stay to attend my Aunt's funeral the next day.

We stayed in the small room at The White House for two nights from 26-28 June. The room was rather small (there were no larger rooms available), but it was clean and comfortable. A great deal of thought had gone into providing everything that anyone may want. There were home made cakes, a welcoming cup of tea and a brilliant... More

We were so warmly welcomed by Carol and Rob, you just know it's going to be good. The house is simply amazing, totally different to my taste at home and has made me realise that modern can be homely, comfortable, welcoming and just so nice.
