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 a 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 on this page, 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 & 3 star Visit Britain award

This review is for Corfe Castle

This was our first ever site with a caravan, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly. A potentially stressful setting up on a slope for our first night was made so easy with help and guidance! Many thanks. Lovely walking in the area as well and an easy stroll acrosss the fields to the village for supplies and refreshments. Very peaceful.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Take care as the site is not sign posted from the road and the campsite access road seems to be the subject of a dispute as barriers and rubbish on the roadside restricting the width of units using it. During busy periods the small facilities block is insufficient.

We've been coming to the Corfe site for years, both as a couple and with friends.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We've been coming to the Corfe site for years, both as a couple and with friends. You just can't beat the location, facilities and the warm welcome from Mark, Lisa and the team. Lovely bacon, bangers & fresh bakery deliveries (order the day before!). Walks: From the site you can walk straight on to the ridge of the Purbeck hills - all the way to Tyneham & beyond (range opening permiting) heading West, and heading East down to Corfe & on to Swanage. There's also Corfe common and the walk up to Kingston & on to Worth Matravers. Great pubs en-route! Buses & trains can make your outward or return trip easier if needed. From Swanage head North to Old Harry Rocks & round to Studland beach, or go South and follow the SW coast path round to Worth Matravers & then back to Corfe. Swanage & Wareham are lovely towns and there's also Tank world and Monkey world nearby. Lulworth Cove & Durdle Dor are a short drive away, as is Kimmeridge bay. Tyneham village is really interesting - forcibly abandoned in the war. If the ranges are open you can walk to Lulworth Cove from there. In summary, there's loads to do, and the Corfe site is an ideal base. Every year there are improvements made to the hard standing pitches - they must be very busy in the off-season ! I hope this has been useful. Ian.
