Less than a mile from the spectacular Jurassic coast, Norburton Hall lies tucked away in the iconic West Dorset village of Burton Bradstock. There have been dwellings here since at least the early seventeenth-century when a farm stood on the southern slopes looking towards the sea. The remains of the earliest buildings still survive in the heart of Norburton in the inglenook fireplaces and original walls.
The farm at North Hill thrived and, towards the end of the nineteenth-century, was bought by Edward Toronto Sturdy. One of the preeminent theophosists of the late Victorian era, Edward set about remodelling North Hill farm in the style of a Jacobean manor, but with all the finest elements of Arts and Crafts design so in vogue at the time, and renamed the house Norburton.
More than a century later Norburton is still a family home, welcoming guests in two of the beautifully converted cottages in its grounds. Perfect for walkers, families, and couples, it offers home-from-home comfort in idyllic surroundings. Tucked away yet close to local amenities in the village and nearby market town of Bridport, winter or summer, Norburton is an ideal base from which to set out and explore.
