    I have spent 2 wonderful weeks here and it was really great!
    The house is very big and, even if I stayed in the caravan, I used the house for having meal and bathroom.
    All are very kind, well mannered and helpful: Nita and David are always bothered to give you all explanations you need and the children are very collaboratives and good company. Moreover, all of them have been so patient with my bad english!!!
    I have been mainly involved in gardening. I helped for 5 hours at day (2 days off at week). The help is always various and I never got bored.
    All the meals are provided: Nita is a special cook and I had the possibility to try many kind of typical english dishes.
    The week end was a good occasion to visit the wonderful surrounding area. I remember with particular delight a Sunday spent in Bournemouth with the family during the Air Festival.
    I sincerely advice this host: it's the best you can find in England!!

    1: Nita I have no words to say how fantastic this experience with the family Tripp was. I spent my Christmas period with them because I wanted to practice English because of my Final Degree Project. They make me feel like home from the beginning to the end of my experience. They were always make me feel like another member of this family. I used to help in everything I can, as I am an active person and I don't like to sit around. Basically, my help were to take care children, do some housekeeping, pick up leaves of the garden and help children with the lovely chikens. I watched movies, good British series or sports with all of them every night. Nita is the best cook of England, she cooked me many English coruses because I’ve been many times in England, but not taste English food like this.

    2; I stayed with David and Nita around 3 weeks. I was helping them out with gardening. I just have good words to describe my experience as a helper in their house:
    they are a really good couple in all the senses, very cool, kind, talkative, and helpful...In short, they are great!!

    I used to help around 5 hours a day from monday to friday. The weekends i was free and i used to go travelling or somewhere else...
    If you are thinking in going with them, you will be well looked after...

    I spent two weeks with Nita, David and their lovely kids and would love to spend more. It was my first experience and I definitely I wouldn't wish better then that one. I begin to feel that these people care about me not even when I arrived to their house, but much earlier. When my fly was delayed and I miss the last coach to Dorchester, they really were worried about me and texted me a lot, doing their best my night in London to be comfortable. Needless to say that when I arrived I immediately felt like home. My help generally consist of different home tasks like cleaning, ironing, organizing etc. You for sure won't starve here. Nita's great cook and dinners always were delicious with huge portions. Accommodation is comfortable and you will have all you need. Thank you Nita and David for you care, being so warm-hearted and kind and not only for pleasant environment for help and rest in the house but for desire to help and organize my spare days (they will always advise you what to do, find out any details and give you a lift when they can)... And separate thank Nita for my last day! ;-) Miss you all (including of course Charlie). Anna

    4: Helper: Tilly

    It was my first experience to help in Nita and David's Manor and I had a very happy moment when staying there. Everyone in the Manor, including Nita, David, 3 kids, 2 cats and a dog, are so kind and friendly. They don't treat you as a helper only, but part of the family member which make you feel you are at home. Thanks for the English dishes, trips and everything. It is a definitely a GREAT and FANTASTIC experience.
