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.

Sadly we only stayed one night due to work commitments, but we will be back.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Sadly we only stayed one night due to work commitments, but we will be back. A lovely warm welcome by Linda despite arriving later than we planned. Great hard standing pitch close to the facilities with good views slightly slopping. Well maintained site with beautiful gardens. The shower and toilets immaculate. Fab site for dogs at no extra charge with great walks to Corfe Castle on the door step. The perfect place to stay for the Castle and Swanage Steam Railway.

In retrospect we should have been more assertive.

This review is for Corfe Castle

In retrospect we should have been more assertive. We watched other people turn down their "allotted" pitch. Customer choice should be a priority. Something that we have become used to at other sites.

Fantastic site.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Fantastic site. Not school holiday time which probably helped but the site was about 85% full in April. Extremely quiet, everyone asleep very early! Very clean, very tidy, very friendly. No shop or club etc., which suits us well. Shops in Corfe about 3/4 mile away and the fish & chip van visits twice a week too - great food at standard shop prices. Loads of birds to see. Will happily come again. Ideally need a motor mover to get onto pitch as roads are not really wide enough to back the caravan on (but I'm not great at that anyway!)

We arrived and found the staff very helpful.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We arrived and found the staff very helpful. The site is in beautiful setting and the pitches are well positioned, with trees/hedges between each pitch. Toilet block sparkling and clean. Good wash up area, and laundry. Chemical emptying point the best we have seen. Fish and chip van on Tuesday and Friday. Lovely walks via pathway into Corfe, only having to cross a small road. Children loved the park. Brilliant site, in our top 3. Have booked return visit for August. Really loved it.
