Mortons House is one of the earliest in Corfe and perhaps the finest. Dating back to circa 1590, the house was originally known as 'Dacombs', after William Dacomb.

William was a wealthy gentleman owning many plots of land and the Dacomb family themselves were prominent citizens of the village of Corfe.

'Dacombs' was extended in 1666, probably with stone taken from the ruined Castle. Inherited by John Morton in 1712, the house was then passed to the Bond family through marriage.

Mortons House was once linked by underground tunnels to Corfe Castle. The imposing entrance hall has the original minster stone fireplace and leads to a magnificent oak-panelled drawing room, lined with exotic wooden friezes which were carved by Indonesian sailors.
