Stayed as group of 9 walkers doing weekend walks in Purbeck. Verdict was unanimous - extremely comfortable and spacious, well-equipped, and beautiful house and grounds. No stinting on the basics provided when you arrive (e.g. cleaning materials) + scones, jams and cream to welcome you. We all loved it. We do an annual trip to various part of South West... More

This is a self catering establishment. We arrived with a group of friends to be met with Scones, jam and clotted cream. Lovely surprise. The rooms were beautifully furnished and each had en-suite facilities. Lovely, large, well fitted out kitchen and two sitting rooms with television. This is part of a working farm and campsite. Great for kids. Well worth... More

Stayed for one night over the Swanage Railway Steam Gala weekend where I was working at Corfe Castle Station. There was only one room available as the rest of the rooms were taken up by a walking party. Norden House is situated well off the main road and was quite quiet apart from typical country sounds! The room I had... More

Set in a very quiet and peaceful location, just off the main road, about 1/2 mile from Corfe Castle. We were very lucky that they could fit us in at short notice (the day before arrival) for 3 nights. They were very accommodating as they managed to get us in by spending one night in one room and the next... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at Norden House during a short break in Dorset. On arrival we were warmly welcomed before being shown to our room; Matthew, the Manager, could not have been more welcoming or helpful. The room itself was quite large and comfortable with more than ample good quality furniture and storage for our needs. Most... More

My sister and I had a twin bedroom. Of the two ceiling lights, only one worked, which had a terrible shade that gave little light. Only one bed had a lamp next to it. The TV had a poor picture that lasted 30 seconds then gave up with 'No signal'. There were cobwebs around the ceiling light and curtains and... More

We stayed at this B&B whilst in the area to go to a friend's wedding. It was situated within sight of Corfe Castle and there was a good pub serving food (the Halfway Inn) just 5 minutes’ drive up the road.
