Hotels in Corfe Castle
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.
