Mortons House was built from Purbeck stone circa 1590 in the shape of an ‘E’ to honour Queen Elizabeth I and was formerly linked by underground tunnels to Corfe Castle. Traditional bedrooms make good use of four posters, traditional stone fireplaces and fine views of the Castle, Swanage Steam Railway and Purbeck Hills. Spend a wintry evening before a log fire among the oak panelling after enjoying a delicious meal in their 2 AA Rosette restaurant.

The location of the hotel provides the perfect centre from which to enjoy this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in this idyllic corner of England, taking in the sights of the Jurassic coastline, Kimmeridge Bay, Lulworth, Durdle Door and Swanage with its famous Steam Railway and the beautiful beaches at Studland
