    "Comfortable and clean cottage that suited the needs of our family - 6 adults and 2 children. The owner was very helpful and everything we would need was at hand.We were led to believe that shops, pubs and amenities were within 1.5mls. Theoretically correct, as the crow flies, but it was a 3+ml car journey, very misleading and disappointing."

    "Local amenities were poor but we knew they were and for us that was not a problem. The only reason I rated comfort low was that 1 of the beds had the worst mattress I have ever slept on, other comments say the same thing.other than that, lovely place, would stay again."

    "Good location plenty of piece and quite, not too far from many good places to visit."
    Raymond ‐ 18 Aug 2018
    "Absolutely superb well equiped cottage/barn. Very Spacious. Great garden space. Ideal location for touring Dorset with a maximum of an hrs drive from all the tourist spots. The downside would be a few of the mattresses upstairs and the sofa need changing as they've seen better days. Owners were quick to rectify and issues we had."
    John ‐ 29 Jul 2018
    "Just great spacious property, very quiet and relaxing garden ideal for our dog, but an hour away from the coast so would not stay here again.Down side was the TV stopped working after just 2 day's and my daughter had to buy a blow up bed as the mattress was so uncomfortable, had sent a text to owner but had no reply.Overall great house for big family and dog."
    Brian ‐ 15 Jul 2018
    "Very well-equipped cottage in a peaceful country location. Perhaps not so many tourist attractions locally, but can reach the coast with a short drive. We were a little unfortunate that during the early part of the holiday tractors were moving loads of manure constantly past the house, but this is the countryside after all."

    "Lovely cottage in a great location. We would happily come back again."
    Margaret ‐ 7 Jul 2018
    "Ideal cottage for a quiet retreat. Set in beautiful country side Kestral is well equipped and comfortable. The owners were helpful and friendly and provide information on sites to see and a generous welcome pack which really got off our holiday off to a good start. Would highly recommend Kestral."

    "Booked for a family get together for my birthday. Perfect for my 86 year old Mum, Daughter, friend & 21month old Grandaughter, Son & Wife, Husband & myself & the Dog. Downstairs bed/shower. 3 more large rooms upstairs all very comfy with one ensuite & another separate bathroom. Cot & stairgates, well, everything you could possibly need was there. Very well thought out & equipt throughout. Lovely family kitchen, Sitting room, BBQ area & comfy seating outside. Large secure garden for toddler & dog. Views over open countryside. We just had a 3 night stay but would have been nice to stay longer. Could not fault the cottage at all & owners very kind & helpful too. My only comment would be that it was a bit of a rush to get us all packed & out by 10am, an extra hour would have helped & to have been able to get in maybe an hour earlier, 3pm as my Grandaughter was getting a bit "crabby" by 4pm. Overall though it is a beautiful, homely Cottage."
