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

Felt to have a central location for the various beaches and attractions. W.e had a wrong pitch for our 5 year old grandson, an outer, more secluded one would have been better, as kids stay up later on summer hols, but noise over by 9pm. Queueing at toilet block at peak times. Family shower room could do with a toilet, but minor quibbles.

Stayed with husband and 2 children. Site was very busy but still had a calm relaxed feel.The approaching road was no problem at all so not sure if it has been changed recently. There are sunny pitches and more secluded pitches amongst the trees.Staff were very helpful. Shower and toilet facilities were always clean and the site was well maintained and tidy. The area is beautiful and you can walk to Corfe Castle from the site along a trail in about 15 mins. Will definitely be returning.

As always a friendly welcome and helpful staff.

This review is for Corfe Castle

As always a friendly welcome and helpful staff. However, we found the site was not as spacious as most club sites and most pitches seemed smaller than average. It was not possible to park a caravan with awning on the pitch and still have room for a car. This meant cars were parked all around the site on grassed areas between trees etc. Motorhomes not so much a problem though, although larger vehicles may find the access and site roads fairly tight. When site is full be prepared to queue for loos and washroom facilities. No effective Motorhome service point so grey water drainage can be a problem. Some pitches appear to be outside the gate which seemed strange. If you don't mind a site that is a bit cramped it is OK.
