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.
