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 Dor 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 Coombe Bridge 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.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Have stayed at this site several times before and I have finally woken up to the fact that: (1) it's very overpriced (2) some of the staff are very unfriendly - you would do well to remember the club motto "the friendly site"! The Welsh bloke in particular who spoke to me like the lowest of the low when informing me of an issue with my hook up cable. Couldn't have been handled worse and upset my wife. (3) The "grass" pitches are infact just patches of bare earth which make a terrible mess of your tent in the rain I would advise you to do as I am going to do now - don't go there, look for another site.

Very near to Corfe Castle village, pleasant walk into the centre from site.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Very near to Corfe Castle village, pleasant walk into the centre from site. Good facilities on site and plenty of leaflets on places to visit. Only criticism was we were on mud and on a slope so after heavy rain all runs down and groundsheet was then soggy underfoot. Would be perfect in the summer in the dry.

We have spend 3 nights during the August bank holiday weekend. The site was fully booked.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We have spend 3 nights during the August bank holiday weekend. The site was fully booked. Staff is very friendly. We camped with a trailer tent and we had to request a different plot as the plot we were initially given was too much on a slope. The 2nd plot was not much better and it is clear that only the hard standing pitches have been levelled out. Luckily it didn't rain otherwise we would have been flooded. Overall nice site with not too many facilities. There is a children play area which is not closed when it gets dark. Some older children were screaming for quite some time after 21.00 when it was already dark. Would only consider coming again with a campervan.
