Fab views of Corfe Castle

General

  • Family-run farm site with fab Corfe Castle and Purbeck Hills views
  • Spacious pitches a 10-minute drive from Swanage and Wareham
  • A five-minute walk to Harman’s Cross steam railway train station

Dawdle down Dorset way for a dreamy break at the fab family-run Purbeck Valley Farm. This park is a champion choice for its location – it’s in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty a 10-minute drive away from both the inland town of Wareham and Swanage at the coast.

Plus it also has gorgeous views… Corfe Castle and the pretty Purbeck Hills are visible from the pitches and you can wander directly towards these destinations via local footpaths and bridleways. Harman’s Cross train station is a five-minute stroll for steam rail trips to Swanage and Corfe Castle (pre-booking essential).

Is it lunchtime yet? To get eats on the go, stick around Corfe Castle and order food in a local pub or stock up on ingredients at the shop and garage a couple of minutes’ drive from the site before cooking over coals by your pitch (barbecues are allowed).

Another wise option when it comes to nourishment is to pack food in a picnic hamper and take it towards one of several sandy beaches within a 30-minute drive, such as Studland (15 minutes), Swanage (10 minutes), Lulworth Cove (half an hour) or Durdle Door (half an hour).

Back on base as evening draws in, lounge on your spacious pitch or use the time to organise yourself using the park's essential facilities, including toilets, showers, a washing-up area and recycling bins.

    Large site with freedom to choose a pitch. Showers hot and clean. Washing up facilities good. Lovely views.

    Disliked: 

    Portaloos are never pleasant, especially in warm weather, even to walk past! Not much flat and smooth land to pitch on but some may like this more wild and basic camping experience.

    The space between pitches. Friendly owners who did not ‘police’ the site in an intrusive way. Scenery lovely. Separate toilets and showers (ie not cubicles in a block, but entirely separate).

    Disliked: 

    Would be good to have washing up and teeth cleaning away from each other. Would be great to be able to buy very basic goods like milk onsite

    It was such a lovely place to stay, quiet (a small bit of noise from the road but nothing that bothered us), clean (the toilets and showers are cleaned every night and checked through out the day) and the staff are lovely we rented a fire pit and logs. Was a lovely stay and we would happily return.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

If you’re in Dorset for a beach break but fancy seeking out quieter shores than the particularly popular Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove (half an hour’s drive), check out Winspit Quarry, Seacombe Cliff and Chapmans Pool (15 minutes). All are easily reached via Worth Matravers (10 minutes), a village with an award-winning pub.

Poole (half an hour) tends to be a little busier but is worth bustling towards for a look at the big natural harbour and Georgian-era old town, while Swanage (10 minutes) is a must for its views of the spectacular chalk-white cliffs.

For countryside tours once you’re done with the coast, check out the atmospheric ruins of Corfe Castle close to the site (35 minutes’ walk), then drive to the RSPB Arne nature reserve for a bit of birdwatching.

Organised days out at family-friendly attractions more your bag? Peer at the primates in Monkey World (20 minutes), amble among the armoured machines at the Tank Museum in Bovington (25 minutes) and chug through the countryside old-school style on the Swanage steam railway.
