Kites Nest is quintessentially english with its beautiful walled gardens, internal decor and stunning rural location. We travelled as a group of eight (3 adults, 2 teens and 3 kids) and with the great British weather, had a few days 'at home'. The house is huge which made these days very comfortable, relaxing and actually a nice change as we spent more time together as a family, cooking, playing cards/games and chatting around the big kitchen table fuelled by countless pots of tea! We visited Weymouth (The Crab House Cafe en route, well worth the visit), Corfe Castle and Bournemouth, all easily reached from the property. The location is secluded with only fields and their wildlife for neighbours. The meteor shower happened to take place during our visit and the dazzling, magical starry show in the clear, open skies was a magical ending to a fantastic trip.

We had a wonderful long weekend in Kate's house. It is set in completely peaceful surroundings, and the beautiful garden was the perfect place to spend a summer's day and evening. The house itself is spotless, very well-equipped, and spacious. We also recommend the Inn at Cranborne (a good walk away) for Sunday lunch. We would love to come back soon!

This place is both beautiful and super-secluded. If you like silence, this is a perfect place to come. Very comfortable. We had a great stay.

Kate's house was wonderful. The house itself was bigger than it looked in the photos, and had a very nice country feel. It was kitted out with everything we needed, including a large BBQ and cupboard full of board games. The house was very clean and well kept. Surrounded by peaceful countryside and farmland. I would go back!

This is the second time I've stayed at Kite's Nest, it is truly wonderful! The house is beautiful with loads of space & is set amongst gorgeous gardens and beautiful Dorset countryside. The perfect retreat from city life, we can't wait to visit again! Kate is also a lovely host, couldn't be more helpful & welcoming. Thank you for another fantastic weekend!
