About Our Location: Holton Heath, Wareham, Dorset
Oakside is in the hamlet of Holton Heath near Organford approximately 4 miles (7 kms) west of Poole and 3 miles (4.5 kms) north of the Saxon walled town of Wareham.
It’s blessed with a lovely rural setting that‘s insulated from the hubbub of the 21st century; yet it’s only minutes from the convenience of modern shopping in Poole and Bournemouth and the main rail and road links to the rest of the UK.
Buses run along our road in both directions connecting Swanage, Corfe, Wareham and Poole (hourly and half hourly in Summer), and along the Jurassic Coast to Weymouth and Exeter. These special double-deckers offer panoramic views of the area.
Guests who stayed at our Wareham B&B accommodation have given us generous feedback on their delight in discovering this corner of Dorset.
An overview of our location is shown below, but for more specific location information and a detailed map refer to our location page.
A Little Information About Wareham
The Dorset town of Wareham is located in between the River Frome and the River Piddle, which is just at the top of the Wareham Channel of Poole Harbour. The town itself is situated on the Lytchett Minster-Swanage road (A351) and to the north west is Wareham Forest which spreads out to the southern foothills of the Dorset Downs.
Moving to the south east is Arne RSPB Nature Reserve and Stoborough Heath, which borders Poole Harbour, and continues to the stunning landscape of Studland. To the west, the Purbeck Hills lead to Corfe Castle and Swanage on the English Channel.
Since the 16th century Wareham has been a market town and. For those guests staying in our Wareham bed and breakfast accommodation, you can take a trip to the market on a Thursday or Saturday to sample what’s on offer
In terms of events, we have a carnival every July which includes fireworks and a parade, as well as live music down on the quay. There’s a music festival taking place each year too, but we would recommend that anybody planning to book B&Bs in Wareham for the festival do so early to avoid disappointment.
For those interested in history and culture, the local St Martin-on-the-Walls church contains a recumbent effigy of T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia). Lawrence is buried at Moreton Churchyard and the Wareham Town Museum has a superb section on life as well as displaying many historical artefacts regarding the town’s past.
