    Mike and Laura welcomed us as friends as we arrived, making us feel at home straight away. They have put so much thought into The Kestral, everything is catered for. The cottage is spotless and comfortable, very well equiped ... there was nothing we wanted. It was a home from home. Highly recommended accomodation.

    The cottage was in exactly the right place for what we wanted. Clean, well equipped, comfortable, with a nice welcome pack of tea, coffee, biscuits, sugar and even a bottle of wine! Everything we thought "I wonder if they have one of those here?" was there! Nicely decorated and with friendly owners. What more could a person ask for?

    Fantastic week in a well equipped, very comfortable and spacious cottage. The place was spotless and Laura was extremely welcoming. Lovely walks with our dog and excellent pubs nearby. Fabulous location for visiting the coast and Sherborne. Would definitely recommend for families and hopefully will go again

    Lovely cottage. Pictures do not do it justice, and it exceeded our expectation. The welcome pack was a lovely touch. View from the back garden was spectacular.
