I can't praise Karen and the accommodation at Norburton Hall enough. We stayed - 2 adults, 1 child - at the Stables. It was perfect, from the facilities, to the ambience, to the guidebooks on the table, to the roses on the wall and the blackbird on the lawn as seen from the kitchen window while doing the washing-up. It was also wonderfully quiet. It is a 20 minute walk to the beach but don't be put off. It's a delightful stroll, down through the stunning village of Burton Bradstock (prepare to fall in love with Grove House which you pass on the way) and across a meadow. We went to the beach in the evening when the light was beautiful, bathing everything in a magical orangey-golden glow. I never wanted to leave. One further service to mention; I left my shirt behind in a wardrobe. Karen posted it back to me free of charge - I live in Bangkok.
