The village was charming, the house was beautiful, the rooms were cozy, the full English breakfast was divine, and the gracious hostess, Janet, was a font of local knowledge. My father, son, and I came for a wedding, and didn't really know anything about the area. Janet went out of her way to help us find weather and age appropriate... More

This was the perfect B&B for us with our one year old baby. We had a good sized room with a huge en suite bathroom which was like having a second room in which the baby could sleep. The house itself is lovely and peaceful inside with a guest living room and a beautiful garden and views out to sea.... More

We were a group of three friends and wanted a base for a two day walk along the Dorset coast path in March and Maycroft proved an excellent choice. Janet was very helpful and her husband very kindly offered to drop us by car at the start of our walk on day 1. The two rooms were warm, clean and... More
