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

We are very impressed by the facilities and beautiful location. The gardens have been well planned with different plants and features adding colour and inviting wildlife to visit it.There are lovely walks to Corfe Castle and village, the coast is near and ideal for water sports, and coastal walking with many amenities along the route. The site is very quiet and peaceful and we will definitely be going back next year.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We asked for quiet spot due to 4 dog's between my friend and I and we were given a perfect secluded large area, we went with 2 12 yr old girls who loved the site and although play area not large it was enough with the shop and camping duties. We went into Wareham on Saturday and walked along the river and went around market and shops. (4 miles away) we walked to the national trust owned ruins of corfe castle which was a twenty min walk direct from site across properly cared for country paths. We had a bite to eat in the local pub The Greyhound sat outside with dogs and children so plenty of room. Had a wonder around shops then back to site over the stepping stones in the river stour in the shadows of the castle. Kids and dogs loved it they were all tired and happily laid out in sunshine after. Showers and toilet facilities were lovely and clean with laundry facilities. The site shop although small it stocked all the usual needed daily things Inc free range eggs from on site chucks. We were asked on check in if we'd like newspapers etc which we did so they put them by for us. On a Tuesday and Friday eve they have a mobile fish n chip van come on site in the eve which was great as there was a fare few people queuing and they swiftly took orders and dispensed them so happy campers. In house staff were really helpful and friendly offered to help my friend and I with putting tent up as it was a 6 berth tunnel tent and they popped over from time to time to see if we needed anything. We both said as we packed our outfit up how lovely a stay we'd had and that we will definitely stay again.
