- Ideal site for exploring historic towns and epic coastline
- Great footpaths for walking and next to the beach
- A members only site
Haycraft Caravan Club Site makes for an ideal base from which to explore the historic towns, picturesque villages and beautiful coastline of Dorset. There are numerous public footpaths and coastal walks near the caravan site for walking enthusiasts, and if you're a beach lover you will be a short distance from the safe sandy beaches of Swanage or the glorious stretch of golden sands at Studland Bay.
The caravan park also offers easy access to the charming attractions of Poole Harbour, Bournemouth, Dorchester, Weymouth, Wareham and the National Trust's Brownsea Island, home to the traditional red squirrel. Haycraft Caravan Club Site is situated just a few minutes' walk away from the magnificent Swanage Railway, allowing the opportunity to ride on heritage steam and diesel trains to Swanage town centre and the attractive Corfe Castle village, which is a great favourite with both the young and old alike. The New Inn pub just along from Corfe at Church Knowle is well worth a visit. If you're looking for holiday destination away from the beaten track but within convenient distance to it, you'll find this peaceful caravan park to be the perfect location with its great views.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
