The Purbeck Hills, award winning beaches and a castle make this a popular family site.

Our Club campsite at Corfe Castle lies at the foot of the Purbeck Hills, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and has close proximity to the Blue Flag award-winning Studland beach with four miles of glorious sand and bustling Swanage with its pretty beach huts.  Lulworth Cove and the iconic Durdle Dor on the Jurassic Coastline are a must!

The campsite has an abundance of wildlife from badgers, owls and pretty moths to beautiful wild flowers such as bluebells and orchids.  It’s also near to the Arne RSPB nature reserve making this a great spot for lovers of the outdoors.

You will find a beach if you walk in any direction from the campsite and nearby Coombe Bridge offers a marine reserve and snorkelling whilst Poole Harbour has watersports for the more adventurous!  A leisurely 15 minute walk from site finds you at Corfe Castle, a stunning ruin from the English Civil War whose iconic silhouette can be seen from miles around. The pretty grey stone village of Corfe Castle lies in the shadow of the romantic castle ruins. Around its square is a cluster of tearooms, trinket shops and pubs.

Our family-friendly campsite offers a mix of hardstanding and grass pitches, some of pitches are under trees. There’s an on-site shop with fresh bread and newspapers delivered daily, a family shower room and wet room for disabled visitors.

Please use the downloadable map available here, rather than satnav to ensure you access the site via A351.

Motorhomes must be booked onto hardstandings.

Corfe Castle currently holds an AA 4 Pennant Award.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Spacious site with roomy hardstanding, small birds outside our door! Easily accessible footpath to Corfe Castle a reasonable walk away - though it would be a challenge for those with mobility issues, especially when the day is wet. For the active, access to the Purbeck Way - walk as far as you like! Buses and steam train from Corfe Castle give easy access to Swanage or Poole. We had a fantastic, relaxing stay and will definitely be back to see all we ran out of time for on this occasion.

Lisa and Mark, our hosts, and their wardens are always so welcoming.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Lisa and Mark, our hosts, and their wardens are always so welcoming. We have stayed twice a year from when the site opened and is our favourite site. Very natural site and great for wildlife/birds/flowers/trees and hedging. There is a bus service 3/4 mile away which goes o Wareham, Swanage, Poole and Bournemouth so no need to use the car every day. Lovely country and coastal walks close by. Beautiful beach at Studland which is National Trust.
