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 – an area known for its walking and wildlife – and is close to the Blue Flag award-winning Studland and Swanage beaches.

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.

There are plenty of walking opportunities straight from the site. A leisurely 15-minute walk, for instance, 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.

Studland beach – a glorious four mile stretch of golden sand – and Lulworth Cove on the Jurassic Coast are within easy reach.

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.

Our first stay at this really charming pretty site in a beautiful location.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Our first stay at this really charming pretty site in a beautiful location. We loved it! Well kept flower beds and views of surrounding hills. The staff were heloful. Able to order newspapers and fresh bread and pastries for the morning which was a nice touch. Sloping pitches. Trees and shrubs divide the site into smaller sections which make it feel more private. We had a tiny tent so the pitch felt a generous size. The site was pin drop quiet at night so that we could hear snoring from a tent a little way away! Only slight downside was that the facilities were not the newest, and shower cubicles were a bit cramped and there didn't seem to be many showers and toilets for the size if the site, although I never had to queue. However, all clean and water hot. Were disappointed that we didn't have the time to stay longer, and would certainly like to come again.

A great location for exploring the surrounding area.

This review is for Corfe Castle

A great location for exploring the surrounding area. The site had good facilities nicely tucked away. The road in was a little narrow in places and watch out for a couple of bumps. On saying that, we will be back another day. A visit to the castle is a must especially for those who enjoy taking pictures!

This could be a lovely site as its in a nice area with walks from the site to corfe castle .

This review is for Corfe Castle

This could be a lovely site as its in a nice area with walks from the site to corfe castle . But unfortunately too many vans etc are on the site. We were given a small level pitch surrounded by a high hedge so could get no sun at all and felt very claustrophobic, so much so we left a day earlier. We were shown to our pitch but had no idea where the water or anything else was as we were not told. There is one small toilet block which is not enough for the people they pack in. Not at all impressed and would not return.

This is our 2nd visit to this site in a year.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This is our 2nd visit to this site in a year. The warden who checked us in both times is a most stunning looking lady, she is also so polite and welcoming. The lane into the site is narrow, good job our reversing is of a professional standard?? Dog walks are set in stunning scenery & fellow residents were all friendly. Lots of wildlife to observe. Will always return, fabulous location and management.
