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

We have just had a lovely 2 night stay here.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We have just had a lovely 2 night stay here. The site is well kept and all staff very friendly and helpful. Our pitch was at the top right next to the gate out onto the path up the hill so a happy dog. The only drawback was the lack of any night lighting down to the shower block. The uneven road made for a slightly perilous trip down. Torch definitely recommended (forgot ours!) It would also be nice to have a proper drive-over grey waste drain. Corfe castle makes for a magnificent backdrop as soon as you leave the site and the surrounding countryside is beautiful with masses of great walks of all lengths and varying terrain and stunning panoramic views. Easy to get to the coast and the wonderful Studland Bay too. We would definitely return.

A great site quietly tucked away from the Roads.

This review is for Corfe Castle

A great site quietly tucked away from the Roads. The final approach could do with a bit of smoothing out though. Facilities were well looked after as were the grounds. A half hour stroll takes you to the Castle ruins and Corfe vilage. Great pubs serving great food. It was perfect for visiting Lulworth Cove, Swanage and Poole returning via the ferry at Sandbanks. It was a little bit noisy at time, but it was the school holidays and children have to play as though they are on Safari .. Be well prepared for a very uneven pitch, have plenty of blocks etc, you will need them.

We really enjoyed our stay here and would return.

This review is for Corfe Castle

We really enjoyed our stay here and would return. The site staff were all very friendly and helful. We got the best ever help reversing our small caravan into an awkward pitch. Although the site is quite large, it was nicely laid out in smaller sections and is very green - lots of trees and wildlife. When we were there the paths were very dusty because the weather was so hot. Our main quibble was with the facilities block. Three washing up sinks are not enough at the height of the season, especially when men are washing the dishes!! There was no sink in the laundry room, athough there were drying racks which were useful. Despite the efforts of the staff, the toilets were not always as pristine as they should have been. This was mainly because of the way the interior drainage had been designed and because many of the happy campers did not mop out the showers after use. A big sign asking people to do this may have persuaded some. The temperature of the showers was variable - and not always hot enough. The shop was small but well enough stocked, and we particularly liked the daily fresh bread and pastry deliveries. It was also good to be able to order a newspaper.

Nice welcome, friendly staff.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Nice welcome, friendly staff. Toilets spotless however no shaver points in washing cubicles which was frustrating. They were positioned next to the hand driers which everyone uses and so you get in each other way. Site looking a little tired but we understand there been a very dry spell so this would not have helped the grass. Very disappointed that children's play area was not accessible during our 8 night stay due to upgrade. If we had known this during booking we would not have selected this site. The staff kept telling us it would be open the next day but it never was leaving two very disappointed children. Why was this upgrade not undertaken during the winter period and ready for both Scottish and English school hols?? We also requested a pitch nearish the toilets but were placed almost as far away as we could be. The plus point though was that we got one of the only level pitches available for tents on the site....campers be warned, there are not many level pitches from what we could see. Fine for caravaners and motor homes though :0). Excellent location for traveling to nearby beaches though, although probably best by car than bike, the roads were busy and perhaps a little dangerous! Nice walks from site too with plenty of wildlife to see. The site is not suitable for bikes or scooters with stone and dust/dirt roads....again kids had brought scooters so were disappointed they could not use them. I hilly site too which is understated in camping and caravan site booklet we feel. All in all a 3 out of 5 due to these facts. Will probably select another site next time.
