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 was a really lovely rural site...perfect for dog owners.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This was a really lovely rural site...perfect for dog owners. Set among a wonderful wooded area. If you enjoy nature, walking and a quiet peaceful site where you can see a range of wildlife this is the right site for you. Easy walk to Corfe Castle and great views from the top of the hill. We really enjoyed our stay.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We enjoyed our stay here due mainly to the sunny warm September weather and being able to walk from site entrance on field/public footpaths to Corfe (20/30 mins) and the wider countryside. The site is sloping in woodland with HS & Grass pitches. Many pitches are in shade for most of the day especially the HS pitches. We found the approach road poorly maintained and advertising a motorhome service point is in our opinion questionable.

The site is tiered uphill with the top tier being the furthest from the amenities.

This review is for Corfe Castle

The site is tiered uphill with the top tier being the furthest from the amenities. If like me you have knee problems walking downhill do not automatically expect flexibility if you need a pitch on the lower flat area, and you've been allocated one on the top tier. I would suggest writing down your request and ringing the site to see if they will accomodate you. Something I should have done although I don't know if this would have made a difference at the time. Similarly, if you want to be pitched close to people you're on holiday with make this a written request too when booking, and although we did it was to no avail even though pitches seemed to be free close by. The site is in lovely surroundings with really good access to the castle and when we went it was very busy, which may account for the lack of flexibility. Just one other point - I don't like the french style hole in the floor chemical loo disposal facility - someone elses 'accident' when emptying gets too close to my feet for comfort :0{

I have travelled far and wide and been to about 20 sites give or take.

This review is for Corfe Castle

I have travelled far and wide and been to about 20 sites give or take. This is the only one that says this is your pitch and does not offer even a suggestion for any others. For a site that has Birds everywhere all the feeders are empty, yes the site is kept clean and tidy the showers are small even for a medium chap like myself. The welcome from the lady I met was Pleasant but the man came before me was getting a right telling off as he had scanned his membership card to his Phone, why not then you would not lose it , good idea but not according to this Staff member after all you have a site seeker app. The village of Corfe has good eating places and its castle and this area to walk or hike or drive anywhere. Nice a quiet TV poor wifi ok. Will return more than likely as the Fox Inn has reopened after 4 years closed.
