Coombe Farm Camping: View from the field

General

  • No-frills camping on grass pitches backed by woodland in rural Dorset
  • A five-minute drive to Swanage beach; Corfe Castle 10 minutes
  • Dark site with Swanage Railway and the South West Coast Path close by

Coombe Farm Camping offers a simple, peaceful Camping or Glamping experience on the outskirts of Swanage in Dorset. The site is set in a 13-acre field framed by oak woods, with exceptional views across the Downs and a real chance of spotting wildlife like deer and owls. Enjoy quiet evenings on our tents-only site, sitting under the stars roasting marshmallows over a cozy small open fire with your family and your dog; what could be better!

One thing you’ll get here that’s certainly a novelty is steam locomotives chuffing along Swanage Railway at the bottom of the camping field – not everyone can say they’ve got a heritage railway line almost to themselves – and there’s even a footpath down to the railway track if you’d like to get a better view of the trains.

Despite this field feeling wonderfully remote, it’s actually only a five-minute drive from Swanage, with its popular beach, great pubs and restaurants. And if you’d rather cook for yourselves, here you can pick up stuff to grill on the firepit back at base.

If you’re into serious walking, you can jump on the South West Coast Path in five minutes’ drive, for bracing hikes along clifftops, and if you’re keen on your medieval history, drive to 11th-century Corfe Castle (10 minutes) to scramble around the hillside ruins.

Basic facilities include a tap in the washing-up area and portaloos, but what this site is all about is the chance to spend quiet evenings sitting under the stars with family and friends – and remember to bring that telescope so you can watch the Milky Way glittering above on clear nights.

    Absolutely everything about the whole stay.
    Quiet and a lovely setting. There were no extra fire things to hire (apart from wood), everything was there.
    Extremely comfortable tent and bed as well as outside table and chairs.
    The manager Ian was a delight to talk to, nothing was too much trouble for him - customer service at its best!
    We have found a gem here and will definitely be back soon.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing whatsoever, we have already started recommending this place to family and friends!

    For what the campsite is advertised as it’s spot on, there are only portaloos and small washing area but that’s what was expected, the owners were friendly and came to ask if we had everything we needed and felt comfortable, they offered wood for a fire for £5, lots of space for pitching, open fires were allowed and was good for our dog. Local petrol station was 5 mins away, swanage & corfe castle 10 mins and 30 min drive to durdle door, Lulham cove and man o war beach. Was able to turn up at anytime and leave at any time, no pressure to get there on time or rush to leave in the morning of the last day.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside is the pitches aren’t very level, the whole site was very hilly but there was still flat space to be used.

Excellent location, basic amenities.06/09/2021

  • Liked: 

    A basic campsite in an excellent location, with great views. We stayed over August bank holiday, so the site was quite busy, but there was ample space for all. We were able to walk across the rail line at the bottom of the hill and follow footpaths into Swanage.

    Disliked: 

    Unfortunately the toilet situation wasn't ideal. There was only 5 portaloos serving the whole field, so these soon filled up. The farmer did his best to keep it clean, but there's only so much can be done with the amount people on the site. My understanding is they're looking to upgrade the toilets, which would make this a 5 star review instead of 4

    Really liked the camping how it should be feel. Loved the owner brought round wood for sale each evening for a camp fire. The kids loved it.

    Disliked: 

    The portaloos were very smelly by the third day. I think some additional emptying/cleaning was needed for a bankholiday weekend

    Not a dislike but rather a comment: although it’s almost wild camping obviously because it’s a field you aren’t alone and other people can station themselves quite close if they like
