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

This site is walking and cycling heaven; it's adjacent to a bridleway (accessed through a gate at the top of the site) and means you can get onto the ridge without going near a road. The site is set up a drive off a lane - so it's beautifully secluded. There's areas of the site with trees and some more open pitches. The site is beautifully kept and all the pitches are generous - we loved being parked at the top of the site. The loos and showers are lovely, really spotlessly clean and warm. However, in the ladies showers, you have to bear in mind the main light is on a timer and if it goes out, you need to come out of the shower cubicle and wave your arms around to get it to switch back on again! Having said that, the light is on for a generous amount of time but if you faff about like I do with conditioner then body lotion etc etc, it may well run out of time! This site absolutely lives up to the club's claim to be 'the friendly club' - absolutely everyone was so friendly. We will definitely be back.

This review is for Corfe Castle

This site is one of the best we have had the pleasure of staying at. The pitches are well spaced out private and well cared for. The toilet and shower block are kept immaculate at all times.A bonus was the abundance of wildlife especially the birds which can be fed from feeders bought from the shop. With the lovely Corfe Castle just a short distance away this site is not to be missed. We will definitely come back.

This review is for Corfe Castle

The addition service as fresh bread cake etc was a superb as the standard from the bakery was out of this world.The shop on the sit was not in the hyper market range but stocked what would be needed. Close by is Corfe castle a fine example of national trust property, Studlan bay within 5 miles gives access to 4 1/2 miles of fine sandy beach. There are many other national trust properties in close proximity. In all with the addition of the quite and peaceful tranquility of the site to relax at following a packed day,we are going to return.
