If only all B&Bs were like this. A lovely house in a beautiful location, comfortable well equipped rooms and a superb English breakfast. This was our second visit and we stayed for two nights. I only wish that we could have stayed longer.

A comfortable Victorian home in a quiet village position. Maycroft offers bed and breakfast in three pretty and well appointed bedrooms. The house is spacious and has ample private parking for guests. More There is a sitting room for guests use. A pretty garden for relaxing. The house is in a quiet position off the main road leading through the village. It is well placed for touring and exploring the Isle of Purbeck. Close to the South West Coastal Path and Jurassic coastline. The lovely beaches of Swanage and Studland are close by. A short drive to the world famous Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. A little further to Salisbury with its magnificent cathedral and further lovely old towns Less
