“beautiful b&b set in great countryside giving excellent service”
Reviewed October 10, 2010

We decided to stay for one more night than planned on our first trip to Dorset and were fortunate to choose Norden B&B from a brochure. Our host was very helpful, and our room large, clean and had great views of the countryside. There is a large garden with seating. Only 15 mins walk away from Corfe Castle on clearly marked paths. Breakfast was great as was the evening meal. We decided on the October deal - £15 for a 3 course dinner with coffee and they are licensed.
The food was excellent and just what was needed after a long day
There is an ajoining campsite and a working farm. I was worried about the hens ect waking me in the morning but I need not have worried the double glazing works and I had a great night's sleep. Will stay again.

This is lovely guest house, the staff were so accommodating, warming milk for our young daughter whatever the hour. Breakfast was lovely (you will not need lunch after it) and a great location, just ten minutes from the famous Studland beach and you can walk to Corfe Castle which is stunning and we all loved Monkey World too. Highly recommend this we will be returning next year. We drove ten minutes to Wareham for our evening meals for great pub grub too. Perfect base and lovely to return to after a long day.

What a great location! Right in the heart of Purbeck. Corfe Castle is only 15/20 minutes walk away and the steam train station a mere 5 minutes walk away. A beautiful setting and clean and tidy rooms. Breakfast was superb. Only negative was the service for our evening meal, where we had a clueless waitress! Other than that, I would recommend.

We had a really special time at Norden House last summer. The staff were really friendly and approachable - nothing was too much trouble - and the home-cooked breakfasts were a real treat. Its location was perfect for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. We'll definitely visit again

We stayed for four nights recently and loved it, the farmhouse is beautiful and clean with large spacious bedrooms with stunning views of the purbeck hills. Breakfast was served in the spacious drawing room with a good choice from full english to croissants etc.
This is a working farm and also has a camp site to the rear, but we found it quite and the people very pleasant, this makes a great base to explore the purbeck area.
