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 & 3 star Visit Britain award

A friendly welcome. Excellent showers and toilet block always clean.

This review is for Corfe Castle

A friendly welcome. Excellent showers and toilet block always clean. Sheltered from the strong winds that blew most of our stay. Nice walks from the site. Hard standings are well made but often have high wooden retaining walls around making it difficult/ impossible to get van, awning and water/waste in the space. On several occasions the mains voltage dropped so low the fridge alarmed and switched to gas (never had that before). I booked in Nov requesting some evening sun. We are apair of pensioners and got put as far away from the facilities as you can get, backed onto the playground, without the evening sun. There weren't any other pitches vacant at the time so we put the awning up and stayed put. I've stayed on lots of club sites and always have been very satisfied and recommended them to others. What a shame, such a lovely location but there are too many pitches squeezed in on the site.

Good site,apart from noisy tents next to vans, very Friendly staff esp Simon (Garland) I would give this man his own site. Very clean and well kept site. My only fault is a little wooden fence seam's to stop the 20ft rule and when you have a loud family in a tent only 9ft from the back of your van and climbing over the fence and cutting between your car and van it spoils what could be a very nice site.good pubs near buy that are dog friendly esp the half way inn.

What a fantastic location, we were only there for two nights - so much to see and do.

This review is for Corfe Castle

What a fantastic location, we were only there for two nights - so much to see and do. The site is just below Corfe Castle - lovely walk to the village for a lovely cream tea at the Tea Room - next to the National Trust facility overlooking the Castle. Within easy reach of NT Studland area, Swanage, Lulworth Cove and many more attractions. Make sure you book this C&C location.
