Mortons House Hotel


Personally run by owners Ted and Beverley Clayton and Sister Alison, Mortons House was built from Purbeck Stone about 1590 in the shape of an E to honour Queen Elizabeth I. It overlooks the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Traditional bedrooms make use of four posters, traditional stone fireplaces and have fine views of the castle, Swanage Steam Railway and out over the Purbeck Hills. The 22 bedrooms which have been sympathetically individually decorated and furnished very much in keeping with the nature of the surrounds in mind.

Guests can luxuriate on a winter's evening by the log fire among the oak panelling, having enjoyed a delicious repast in the AA two rosette restaurant under the supervision of Head Chef Ed Firth. The main hotel restaurant offers fine dining award winning dishes using locally sourced and seasonal produce where possible.

Mortons House provided a perfect centre from which to enjoy this area of outstanding natural beauty in an idyllic corner of England, taking in the sights of Corfe Castle, the Jurassic coastline, Kimmeridge bay, Lulworth, Durdle Door, not forgetting the beautiful beaches at Studland - a glorious slice of natural coastline featuring a 4 mile stretch of golden sandy beach with views of old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. The village of Corfe Castle is protected and perfect - the old 'capital' of the Isle of Purbeck… you've even got a sunny micro-climate here.

An à la carte menu is on offer along with a lighter lounge menu. Sunday lunch available. Special diets also available on request.
Weddings, conferences and functions catered for.
Children welcome of any age.
