Edwardian Norburton Hall offers stylish self-catering accommodation on a beautiful country estate

Norburton Hall is a lovely country manor house with extensive grounds that just happens also to be home to some extremely stylish self-catering cottage accommodation. Surrounded by six acres of rolling lawns and woodlands, the house was originally built some 400 years ago but remodelled in Arts-and-Crafts style in 1901. Today it is grand without being too formal, with an imposing main hall, complete with sweeping staircase and stained-glass windows, and lots of Arts-and-Crafts features.

The estate's various outbuildings – stables, haylofts and the like – have been converted into a series of extremely well-kitted-out self-catering units, each of which makes for a fantastic cottage retreat just a stone's throw from the famous Jurassic Coast (indeed one of the nicest things about Norburton Hall is that you can walk from here to the sea from here).

There are five cottages in all, sleeping from two people (the Hayloft, the Stables, Dairy Cottage) to four people (the Shippen) to eight (Gardener's Cottage), and furnished in contemporary style, with flatscreen TVs and DVD players and well-equipped kitchens; a couple have underfloor heating and are dog-friendly (the only one furnished in a traditional cottagey style is Dairy Cottage). The welcome is warm, and if you pre-order one of their lovely Dorset Produce Boxes you're set up for provisions before you arrive. It's a lovely self-catering option in a really fantastic location.
