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 a 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 on this page, 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 & 3 star Visit Britain award

This review is for Corfe Castle

Access wasn't a problem as in a motorhome and the road is almost dead straight off the main road so oncoming traffic is easily seen. Complaints about duty site road should be levelled at those campers who exceed the 5mph limit. Little dust created below that speed. Children play fighting "Knights and dragons" were a nuisance as parents abdicated their responsibilities and children screamed all over the site especially in the evenings when a little peace would have been enjoyable. Clearly, this will depend on the mix of families staying. Overall a great location and pleasant site. Driving through Wareham on a Saturday morning was a nightmare - try to avoid.

We've just come back from a wonderful 2 week holiday at Corfe Castle C&C site.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We've just come back from a wonderful 2 week holiday at Corfe Castle C&C site. Located in a lovely part of the country. There were several walks from the site which we enjoyed with our 2 dogs - the walk down to Corfe was our favourite. Our pitch was a hard standing - it was flat with plenty of room...partially shaded by trees around the back, which helped with the hot weather we had whilst down there. The shower/toilet block was always kept very clean & tidy considering the site was full & busy (didn't have to queue at all whilst there). Nice atmosphere on the site, which led to a very relaxing holiday. Lots of places to visit in the area - Durdle Door & Lulworth Cove well worth a visit for the scenery. Hope to go back again soon.

This is the first CCC site my wife and I have stayed at.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This is the first CCC site my wife and I have stayed at. We were very impressed with the welcome, the cleanliness and the layout of the site. We love walking, and this is a fantastic site for being able to walk directly from campsite without the need to drive! To some extent, you need to have the right pitch to suit your situation - ours was off to the side in a small cul-de-sac on a hard-standing. If we'd have been pitched in the middle on the grass, or nearer to the play area we might have been less impressed, but that said it does offer pitches to suit all! The walk to Corfe Castle is easy to follow and not too strenuous, and the village offers a bakery and several pubs. The site shop sells essentials, and you can order newspapers, bread and pastries for delivery each day. An excellent site that we will definitely revisit.
