We live on site and Maycroft is our home and we welcome guests. We are both very knowledgable on the area and its facilities and delight in helping our guests enjoy their stay with us. Guests have their own keys and are welcome to come and go as they please. Wonderful walking country and excellent beaches at Swanage or Studland.

About the neighbourhood
The Isle of Purbeck is unique, having a magnificent coast line and is a Unesco site for the Jurassic Coast and South West coastal path. The house is a short walk over the fields to the cliffs for keen walkers and bird watchers. There is a friendly local pub and Post Office general store in the village. Lots more restaurants, pubs, etc. in the locality a short drive away either at Swanage or Corfe Castle. We are a short drive from the famous Tank museum at Bovington and Monkey world. A little further afield for Salisbury and Dorchester
Getting around
The main road leading past The Old Malthouse links in with the A350, running between Swanage and through Wareham to join the A351. An easy drive to visit all the tourist attractions in the area or to use the smaller roads to visit the coastal villages. We have a good supply of maps and books covering the area.
