The Purbeck House Hotel is a family run hotel whose staff are experienced in providing a friendly, personal approach to your enquiries and wedding day.

Formerly a convent, the hotel is set in large grounds overlooking Swanage Bay providing a choice of beautiful backdrops for your photographs. We are the first hotel premises in the Isle of Purbeck to hold a Civil Marriage Ceremony Licence, held now for three years and recently renewed for a further three.

We have two rooms which are specially licensed: the Purbeck Room, the Thomas Hardy Room.
