Set in a secluded six-acre field and surrounded by high hedges, backed by public land and over 100m away from the nearest road or house, we are the closest site to Swanage town centre and its shops. We are located only a seven-minute level walk to the lovely sandy beach.
The camping area is tents only which means no car radios, no early morning engines starting up and no worries about kids and cars in the camping field.
Simple but clean facilities are provided on site: toilets, free hot showers, free use of hairdryers and plugs, and hot water washing-up facilities.
We also recharge your mobiles for one pound although there are 13A sockets for your use for free, but you can blow up your air mattresses, freeze your ice packs and chill in or fridge for free.
Following are the top nine things that set us aside from other sites in the area
We are level. Most of the sites around here are on sides of hills.
We are central - 8 minute walk across the park to beach or town centre - no parking hassles or £8 per day parking fees, (or drink driving issues!) And it is an easy pleasant walk to shops, pubs and restaurants.
The site is a manicured lawn - no more tussocks or flints!
We allow open fires and bar-b-q's by your tent for a real camping experience!
Cars are separate to the camping area - no worries about the kids playing, radios or engine noise.
We free camp meaning you choose where you like to go and can group with friends.
Free facilities - including hot showers, lilo pumping, freezer, fridge and electric points.
We back onto huge playing fields, free adventure playground and skateboard park accessed without having to go on the road - so you can send the kids off for an hour or two worry free!
Quiet site, no electric hook up so no TV next door and we security patrol at night, (and no karaoke bar!)
Maps and information on walks and activities are available in the reception. We are always happy to help you choose what to do with your free time.

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.
