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.

Visited this site in March 2017.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Visited this site in March 2017. We are in our 60s/70s and were disappointed that the walk to Corfe village was not manageable for us, as the cross country terrain was very hilly and muddy and at night, if using the road to go into Corfe for a pub meal, with no street lighting or pavements, was too dangerous. We felt a bit cut off during the evening. We also had no tv reception, even with an aerial booster or any wi fi, despite having a years club wi fi membership. Nevertheless we had a lovely short holiday there.

Lovely clean and quiet site. Staff very friendly and helpful. An ideal site for a shorter break, but one you will keep coming back to.

This review is for Corfe Castle

As new members this time around (been away for about 20 years!) this is the first club site we have stopped on. The access was a little narrow, but is accessible by just about all sizes of units. Booking in was very easy and we were made to feel very welcome by Mark & Lisa We were shown to our pitch which was a hardstanding with hook up. We were at the top of the site. Easy parking with a minimum of levelling required. Kettle on in about five minutes! Access to the Purbecks and an easy walk to Corfe Castle in about 25 to 20 minutes where you will find places to eat and a lovely little general store. Access to the Castle which is National Trust is well worth the cost. Also in Corfe is a great steam railway taking you to Swanage for the day. Great to photograph from a close up at the station to a long shot at the castle. All in all a great site to stay at with plenty to do in the area. The only downside was nothing to do with the site. It was the four wheel drive vehicles ripping up the Green Lanes. Makes the walk to the castle very difficult on a muddy day..
