We stayed with my wife's parents for a week in the Shippen apartment. The whole site is of beautiful grounds and so very peaceful. Each apartment has its own sitting area outside and we were blessed with wonderful weather to make the most of that. Karen, our host, could not have been more helpful and friendly. It was easy to...

As a solo traveller, I stayed in The Stables. The accommodation was bright, light and airy and very clean. The double bed was extremely comfy with wonderfully soft pillows and bedding. Parking was very close by (although down some stone steps) and I had my own little terrace area for the tea-time sun+ drink + book. Just the other side... More

We stayed in The Stables which is in the grounds of Norburton Hall. It's in a stunning location on the outskirts of Burton Bradstock, the grounds of which were very beautifl, private and peaceful. The accommodation was spacious with all mod cons. Very relaxing and slept like a log in the comfy king sized bed. It's convenient for sight seeing... More

Very happy to hear how relaxing you found your holiday - being able to easily access everything particularly good beaches and restaurants on foot so that you can forget about the car has many benefits, doesn't it? Really good to hear that you slept like a log, too - many thanks for your review highlighting the benefits of this location. More

We stayed in the old dairy cottage for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it. No noise or light pollution in this fantastic location. Norburton Hall has lovely gardens full of trees, beautiful flowers and birds chatting the whole time. The cottage is for three, it is very comfortable - sofas, bed and chairs all look new and make it a... More

We recently stayed at Norburton Hall with several members of our family, in the Shippen, Hayloft and Stables. It was perfect! Karen made us very welcome and was always there if we needed advice. The cottages are beautifully appointed and comfortable, each with its own patio area. The grounds are extensive and full of mature trees and shrubs. It's only... More

Me and my family had a lovely time staying at the Stables at Norburton Hall. We have two young boys and even though this accommodation is only one bedroom, there was plenty of room for a cot and a childrens airbed + there is a sofa bed if you have older children. The living/kitchen space is also a decent size... More

We stayed in the Gardener's cottage for an excellent week in April. The accommodation is well equipped and comfortable for two families (8 of us). The owner was very helpful and informative about the area and if you're into cycling but don't fancy too many of the 'Dorset Hills' she'll point you in the right direction! The location is excellent... More

Thank you for such an informative review - I love the way you've described how the cottages are perfect hideaways, yet are still convenient for the beach and village pubs. It will be wonderful to welcome you back again - we know some lovely cycle rides for picnics or you're welcome to join us during one of our weekend cycles... More
