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

Corfe Castle is about 15 mins walk along the valley through the purbecks, fabulous views of the castle and countryside. Nice little village, we visited the greyhound pub for food and drink, it's very dog friendly and food was lovely with a selection of local ales. Be warned there is no cash point in Corfe Castle. The site is lovely and quiet, with spotless toilet block. It is brilliant for dogs with a dog walk path 2 minutes away with access from the site. We only booked for 2 nights originally, but decided to stay for a 3rd night as it was so lovely and relaxing. Will definitely be returning to this site.

Well spaced plots. Really quiet and dark at night.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Well spaced plots. Really quiet and dark at night. Lovely walk to the village, don't forget your torch if late. We did. Very clean and guys super friendly. Super to come back to after a day out in our camper Winnie. Small lane access but large mobile homes parked up prove no problem. Give them a go won't be disappointed. Oh and super food at the greyhound in the village best chips ever.

Good location for Beach/Coast walks/steam train etc.

This review is for Corfe Castle

Good location for Beach/Coast walks/steam train etc. Only down side was poor signposting of site. Only one brown sign from Corf side and no way of knowing if it is the Camping and Caravan Club site? Drove past it as thought that the Club would have a sign up. Then had to find a place to turn around with the caravan. That said, this is one of the best sites that I have visited, quite a country site, but easy walk into town -about 20 minutes. Will visit again soon.
