The Croft was chosen because it took dogs, was in walking distance of 2 pubs/restaurants and virtually beside a harbour. We got what we hoped for in the way of a very clean comfortable room and a very good full English. What we did not expect was the charm and humour of Colin who as 'front of house' is a...

We have stayed here now six times and are never disappointed with the service which is second to none. The rooms are exceptionally clean and our room, room 3 had an excellent view across the harbour. Breakfast is first class and the ambience, built around Colin's charm and attentiveness is most comforting, if not unusual in most other hotels. The...

Very warm welcome from Colin, lovely clean room in a beautiful house. Fantastic breakfast cooked to order by Ken, presented nicely. We left feeling more like friends, even called back for a drink at the bar 3days later. Will certainly come back to stay. Keep doing what you are so obviously natural at - entertaining !!

Behind the bar is a sign which says "Arrive as strangers, leave as friends" which turned out to be spot on! From the first contact with Colin on the phone when booking to saying goodbye at the end of our short stay, he made us feel very welcome and special. We chose this guest house for its position by Cockwood...

The Croft empitomises what a great B&B should be like. Its a beautiful house with a lovely garden opposite the harbor. The lovely hosts can not do enough for you and you actually feel like you've gone to stay with friends rather than a B&B or hotel. We had a lovely breakfast on Sunday morning with fresh cut fruit, yoghurts,...
