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 an on-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 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.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We have been returning to this site for a few years; always the the same friendly welcome and outstanding location. The garden's are well maintained with an interesting variety of shrubs and plants to look at and enjoy, also, this encourages wildlife. The opportunities for bird -watching is great, lots of different species, it is lovely to see them in their natural habitat. The sea is not to far away, we enjoy kayaking and coastal walks. There are many interesting historical places to visit, Brownsea Island is a wonderful place to go for a day trip. It is nice that the site have a pizza and fish and chip service which come a few times a week. This is ideal if you just arrive back from a day out and don't want to cook!! I can also recommend the eggs from the site shop, which couldn't be fresher and are delicious. We will look forward to returning next and year, hopefully our stay will be longer.

This review is for Corfe Castle

The one niggle we had was, we paid for an electric pitch, as that was the only pitch that was available to book. We were shown to a pitch with an electric hook-up, that looked like the grass was clipped and fairly level. As we started to pitch our tent, the guy that showed us to the pitch, advised us that he had given us the wrong pitch and asked us to move to a pitch that was on more of a slope, under a tree, grass was long and the hook up was not close by. Our tent ended up covered in bird poo due to the tree. I think once they realised that we didnt "need" an electric hook up, they moved us to a less favourable pitch, so as to give the original pitch to a family that were using the electric. Since both pitches were apparently electric, there was no real need to move us. As I said, a small niggle in an overall positive experience

We have a toddler who can be a bit boisterous in the main shower cubicles.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We have a toddler who can be a bit boisterous in the main shower cubicles. As such we prefer to all use the family shower rooms available on most sites. For some (annoying) reason, the family shower room was effectively unavailable for 4 out of 5 mornings. Most sites take a deposit and hand out a key, not this one. So if you are a family with young children ensure you ask for access to the family shower room for the ENTIRETY of your stay.
