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, and has close
proximity to the Blue Flag award-winning Studland beach with four miles of
glorious sand and bustling Swanage with its pretty beach huts. Lulworth Cove and the iconic Durdle Dor on
the Jurassic Coastline are a must!
The campsite has an abundance of wildlife from badgers,
owls and pretty moths to beautiful wild flowers such as bluebells and
orchids. It’s also near to the Arne RSPB
nature reserve making this a great spot for lovers of the outdoors.
You will find a beach if you walk in any direction from
the campsite and nearby Coombe Bridge offers a marine reserve and snorkelling
whilst Poole Harbour has watersports for the more adventurous! A leisurely 15 minute walk from site 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.
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.

We had problems with our car on arrival and needed help. This was given reluctantly by the site manager. He then complained that my husband had put our broken down car on an area that had been reseeded. There was no sign to make us aware and was the only place we could get the car to as we could only get reverse, which this person knew. Why would you reseed an area a week before closing for the season? Our short stay (we booked for 8 nights and only stayed 3) was very unpleasant. Unfortunately I had to give 1 star for friendliness because it would not let me leave it blank. I wanted to give a zero. As for the site itself it had some lovely areas but a few of the pitches are hard to access because of badly placed electrical points and steep slopes. Not good if you don't have a motor mover.

The location for this campsite is wonderful, walking distance from Corfe Castle. However, we were disappointed with the customer service.
We booked for October, and so had to have hard standing for our 4x4/camper as all the grass spaces had been re-seeded apparently. We have no facilities to use hook up, but were told that we would have to pay for it anyway as it was part of the cost for hard standing and as such they could not reduce the cost. This is the first place I have ever been that charged us for hook up without us using it, so we were not very happy. Not great customer service.
One of the nice features at the campsite is that they provide fresh bread / pastries. Our first morning, my husband went to get us a pastry each which we were both looking forward to. Only to be told that we needed to have pre-ordered and that I was told upon check-in the night before that we needed to pre-order. I was not told this, otherwise I would have pre-ordered. The owner was quite dismissive and almost rude about the fact that I had been told and so should know!!
The last piece of feedback is about the campsite itself. We are dog owners, and brought our dog with us, who we religiously clean up after. But we were disgusted & disappointed to find several dog poos on the site.
All of these items are only small things, but they all added up to make for a stay we did not enjoy, did not feel welcomed, and generally felt really disappointed. We would not use this campsite again or recommend it to others.
