Norden House is a cosy, possibly haunted, Georgian-ish period farm house, situated within the picturesque Purbeck hills, with limited views of the impressive ruins of Corfe Castle. Being a farm house gives the game away a bit....It's on a farm. A farm with animals...real ones, which means they make noises and other animal associated activities and products. So be under...

Fairly basic room and facilities but thats what we expected for the price. Good location, friendly service and good breakfast. Solid B and B. Would recommend for a short break. Onsite farm and play area was a bonus for little ones.

We spent 3 nights at Norden House. Nice large airy room. Excellent breakfasts, charming staff without being in-your-face. Lovely woodland path to the village, but bring a torch! The restaurant was closed, so no comment on that.

I visited with my boyfriend for a cycling weekend in February. The house is beautiful and lovingly restored. Our room was everything it should be except a bath would have been a bonus. The breakfast was lovely and they even accommodated my vegetarian requirements which is good to see from a working farm! The farm itself was such a delight... More

The B&B has a great restaurant which can be used by its residents or members of the camp site. This is a working farm and has a lovely kids... More

We knew this was a working farm so don't know why others complain about the cockerel, we thought it was charming! Mathew gave us a warm welcome and we had a choice of two twin rooms. Yes, the decor is very dated but it was clean and comfortable. Went into Corfe Castle for dinner at the Castle Inn (excellent!) Breakfast... More

Since our review of Norden House , we are pleased to report that when the manager returned from holiday he telephoned us and apologised about our recent visit not being up to his normal standards, assuring us that appropriate action would be taken. He told us that the downstairs bedroom had been booked for us due to some misunderstanding and... More

We booked this weekend nine weeks before and were surprised that all of the payment of £ 85 ( one night) was taken at the time of booking, something we had not come across before. On arrival, no staff could be found and bells were unanswered. On using our mobile to attract attention, someone arrived to show us into our... More

A warm welcome from our host. Efficiently shown to our room which was ensuite with windows on two sides overlooking the beautiful garden. Views towards Corfe castle in the mist first thing in the morning were lovely. The rooms and decor are dated but everything was very clean and tidy. We had booked two nights and slept extremely well.
