I have just stayed at Norden House for 2 nights-this was not a pre-booked stay, but an emergency due to my family falling ill whilst camping at Norden Farm. The house was lovely-and the gardens so pretty, the rooms were just as you would expect from a B&B, but what really stood out was the flexibility and great customer service... More

This B&B was fine in many ways the rooms are OK but a little tired and the plumbing is not great and the shower was the type that you had to run around in to get wet, but it did work in a fashion. That having been said the breakfast was of a very high standard and so was the... More

The staff at the hotel are very friendly and welcoming and the room was large with a pretty view to Corfe Castle. The furnishings are a little dated and tired but the room was quiet and comfortable for the night. We ate at the restaurant downstairs and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meal. This probably wouldn't be... More

The staff at Norden were very accommodating when we hit a problem with our booking. The room was clean & comfortable although there was only 1 chair for 2 of us. The breakfast saw us through the whole of the day. It is set in beautiful surroundings & is very peaceful with the exception of the Cockerells & Peacocks but... More

Lovely B&B with great views from the grounds, peacocks in trees and ponies in fields - Shame the restaurant was shut, as the reviews sound great - The lovely man in charge took my memories of Swanage very well considering it's his home town...

Booked this on the back of other good reviews. Was not disappointed. Welcoming host. Nice clean comfortable room. Our private bath was not in the room but that was not a problem. Wonderful view from room - across lawn with peacocks roaming, Corfe Castle in the background. Tasty breakfast. This will not be our last visit.

We booked two rooms, we were told on arrival that breakfast was going to be served late as there were several people going to a wedding and these people had requested this. Well we were going to the wedding and we also got chatting to the other guests that were staying and they had not requested a late breakfast either,... More

My wife and I stayed at the camp site in August (busy) and decided to have a longer stay in October. We invited our parents to stay in the B&B for a night whilst we stayed on site in our motorhome. On arrival at the B&B we were all made most welcome. Parents (elderly) had been allocated a ground floor... More
