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

Track into site terrible, pitch too small and extremely difficult to get onto if you are placed up the hill, only one water stand down the slope, a lot of older caravaners were having difficulty replenishing aquarolls. One shower block although very clean not adequate for 80 pitches. Have been a member of cc&c for several years and this is far from there normal standards. Will not be using this site again.

This site is not what I�ve come to expect when visiting a Camping and Caravan club site.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This site is not what I�ve come to expect when visiting a Camping and Caravan club site. Firstly, I must say the staff working at the site were brilliant, very helpful at all times. But for me that�s where it ended the roads around the site are crushed lime stone so there�s clouds of white dust that goes everywhere every time a car passes. The pitches are very small, my caravan just fitted with a wall so close behind I had to use a spanner to lower the corner steadies, the awning also just fitted leaving just 6� to walk around it and the timber wall. The showers although very clean are very small (800mm x 800mm) with the same to get dry/changed, if you try to use the seat it takes up 80% of the floor space so in effect is unusable. The site is well placed and the town of Corfe castle is with walking distance.
