Canford Crossing B&B - ABOUT US

Whilst neither of us was born in Dorset, we have lived in the county for over 20 years and as registered Ambassadors for Dorset, we know Wimborne and the surrounding areas well.  So are more than happy to suggest itineraries to make the most of your stay in Dorset should you so wish.

Until 2013, Diane worked for a local authority and prior to that worked in the hospitality industry.  Terry has extensive IT experience; his most recent project was developing an incident management system for local authorities to use during the 2012 London Olympics. Both of us camped on the outskirts of London for the duration of the games and experienced first hand the atmosphere in the capital, but it was good to get back to the peace and tranquillity of Dorset!

We are involved in a range of charities including:
