Everybody says there is something special about Mortons House Hotel, a sixteenth century Elizabethan Manor situated in the beautiful village of Corfe Castle.  Mortons House has been an ideal venue for civil weddings and receptions for many years, catering for up to 60 guests.

Mortons House offers both the history and charm of a private country house and is personally run by the Owners.  Built in 1590 in the shape of an ‘E’ to honour Queen Elizabeth I, Mortons House has been sympathetically converted into a twenty-one bedroom hotel.  The walled gardens overlook the thatched roofs of the village.  The imposing entrance hall has the original Minster stone fireplace and leads to a magnificent oak-panelled drawing room lined with exotic wooden friezes carved by Indonesian sailors.  

The Elizabethan Room is an ideal suite for the ‘happy couple’ to enjoy their honeymoon with a beautiful antique four poster bed, lounge area, attractive original fireplace, spa bathroom and dressing room.

In recent years, Mortons House Hotel has acquired numerous accolades including a Gold Award from VisitBritain, ‘Small Hotel of the Year’ from South West Tourism and 2AA Rosettes for Fine dining.  Mortons House provides the perfect setting for your special day.
