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 Door 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 Kimmeridge 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.

Access and SatNav Advice

There is no site signage from the Church Knowle direction. From the A351 Wareham direction turn right at the foot of the castle. Drive for ¾ of a mile and turn right at the Corfe Castle C&CC sign. Beware satnav may direct you past the entrance lane.

Worth Noting

Boat owners please be aware there is an additional pitch fee policy. The site has level hardstandings, levellers may be required for grass pitches. Some pitches are under trees. TV reception can be poor.

Eat Local

Farmers’ Markets in Wareham and Wimborne. The Greyhound, The Castle Inn, the National Trust Tea Rooms, Corfe Castle Model Village and The New Inn, Church Knowle serve homemade produce. The site shop sells a good selection of locally-sourced produce.

This review is for Corfe Castle

As a family we really enjoyed camping here. The team were excellent and the site clean. It was a great hub to visit the beaches, walk to Corfe Castle and explore the surrounding countryside. The entrance to the site is the only downside which needs both a careful and slow approach, as well as some attention for repair.

Lovely site and lovely location.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Lovely site and lovely location. Was our first camping holiday with 3 small children (ages 7,5,1). The kids absolutely loved it, making friends with other children and playing with them. Facilities were clean and site well kept. Could be as social as you wanted to be, nice friendly atmosphere. Small walk into Corfe Castle village, which has a couple of pubs, Steam Railway into Swanage and of course Corfe Castle. Chip van visits the site twice a week so can have a break from cooking. Will be coming back.

Nice clean site and very helpful staff, approach road is a bit bumpy but just drive slow and it is fine. Showers etc spotless, this site is well laid out even when full does not seem busy as lots of "areas" to pitch in. No complaints from us and we would be happy to stay again. Fish and Chip van on Friday is very good, did not eat in Corfe Castle village as it was heaving with people. Lots to see in the area without having to drive to far.

Our 2nd visit. Staff friendly and helpful.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Our 2nd visit. Staff friendly and helpful. I have noted previous comments regarding access road and size of pitches. On speaking to staff it appears local farm owner not willing to allow road to be improved so no fault of site. Pitches could be bigger but where do you stop . We only have smallish caravan so had plenty of space for awning and sun canopy which was a godsend with the extreme heat(never thought I would say that in England) Would certainly return to site again.
