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 is the first CCC site my wife and I have stayed at.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This is the first CCC site my wife and I have stayed at. We were very impressed with the welcome, the cleanliness and the layout of the site. We love walking, and this is a fantastic site for being able to walk directly from campsite without the need to drive! To some extent, you need to have the right pitch to suit your situation - ours was off to the side in a small cul-de-sac on a hard-standing. If we'd have been pitched in the middle on the grass, or nearer to the play area we might have been less impressed, but that said it does offer pitches to suit all! The walk to Corfe Castle is easy to follow and not too strenuous, and the village offers a bakery and several pubs. The site shop sells essentials, and you can order newspapers, bread and pastries for delivery each day. An excellent site that we will definitely revisit.

This review is for Corfe Castle

I stayed at this site with my son in July. I loved the way the site was laid out. It was very busy and the site was full ,the welcome was as always from the c.c.c very cordial. My gripes ,not enoughtoilet cubicles and no lights in them, the site is secluded and about a mile away from the town so if you have a motorhome due to very .limited parking in town you have to walk ,not a problem if you are fit but if like me physically disabled not the best place to camp... I would recommend this/site to all but disable motor homers...its beautiful.

Access to this site is up a one way with lots of pot holes and no passing places.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Access to this site is up a one way with lots of pot holes and no passing places. The are 3 cubicles in the mens toilets and 4 showers one was very small. The ladies was slightly better with 5 showers. There is no controlling the temperature on the showers and they are on a very short time button which means constant stop starting of the showers. These facilities are inadequate for the number of pitches. Our pitch had plenty of sun but othets were shaded under trees. The location for us was good but maybe not so good for older people. The site is being maintained to a high standard.

Stayed for a week, relaxing and siteseeing.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Stayed for a week, relaxing and siteseeing. A lovely walk from the site into Corfe where you can pick up the bus to Poole or Swanage or the steam train (to give the driver a break and sample the local ale). Or head in the other direction up the track and to the top of Knowle hill, the views! Good facilities and very clean and tidy. Book early and ask for a hardstanding. It was a warm week and there was dust from the road but unless you sit very close to the road this did not affect us. The lane leading to the site is narrow but driven with respect no problem.
