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.

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 site was exceptional with friendly staff and a super location.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This site was exceptional with friendly staff and a super location. Advertised as a 'Top Site for Dogs' it lived up to expectations. The countryside was easlity accessible and we did not use the car one as the village of Corfe and local attractions were within walking distance. The facilities were outstanding as I have never in my life been able to put a towel on the floor in a camp site shower block but there were immaculate. The entrance to the site was well marked but it was a little narrow but if you take it slow it is easy to navigate. Thank you for a wonderful stay and will be back:)

The access to the site is appalling, a difficult, narrow very uneven track.

This review is for Corfe Castle

The access to the site is appalling, a difficult, narrow very uneven track. The site is very attractive but slopes up and down, this makes for hard work of filling water barrels, emptying waste water etc. Toilet and shower block is very clean and modern but again access is down a slope. Hard standings are somewhat narrow and a large awning i think would not be easy to fit. This site is for active people, and would appeal to walkers.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Have stayed at this site several times before and I have finally woken up to the fact that: (1) it's very overpriced (2) some of the staff are very unfriendly - you would do well to remember the club motto "the friendly site"! The Welsh bloke in particular who spoke to me like the lowest of the low when informing me of an issue with my hook up cable. Couldn't have been handled worse and upset my wife. (3) The "grass" pitches are infact just patches of bare earth which make a terrible mess of your tent in the rain I would advise you to do as I am going to do now - don't go there, look for another site.
