• Kemp's Country House resides in a prime location of un spoilt countryside and is a luxurious rural retreat for anyone that wants to enjoy the natural beauty of dorset. It is close to the lively towns of Bournemouth/ Poole (12 miles) but far enough away not to be affected by busy town life. It is also a short distance from the historic saxon town of Wareham (3 miles) which is a perfect place to explore the World Heritage Coast from. Looking out from the Guest House, guests can see across the Valley of the Frome and enjoy spectacular views of the purbeck hills all year round.
