Purbeck View Campsite: Firepits

General

  • Family-friendly farm campsite overlooking the Purbeck Hills
  • Swanage, Studland and Durdle Door all within a 20-minute drive
  • A mile's walk from Wareham town centre

Off to Dorset in search of scenic views? A stay at Purbeck View Campsite should fit the bill nicely, surrounded as it is by the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and with views over the Frome Valley and (yes indeed) the Purbeck Hills beyond.

The simple pitches here are part of a working family farm, so those vistas may be boosted by sightings of cattle grazing in the fields too. It’s a family-friendly setup here. Toilets, portaloos and outdoor showers will be available.

This is a fab location for a Dorset holiday getting out and about around the Isle of Purbeck and Jurassic Coast – popular attractions including Corfe Castle, Monkey World, The Tank Museum and Durdle Door are all within a 20-minute drive, as are the beaches at Swanage, Studland and Lulworth Cove. Gadding about on public transport is an option too as there are bus stops a mile away in Wareham.

The centre of Wareham (about a 20-minute stroll away) is also a handy place to source your food: it’s got a couple of small supermarkets, several pubs, restaurants, shops and a variety of takeaways to pick from. Just to the north of the town is a train station that’s linked to the main rail network and the Swanage Railway for steaming down to the seaside in style.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better stay than here. It has all the facilities you could want including good sized pitches, warm showers, clean toilets and plenty of bins and space to wash up. It was great to be able to choose your own pitch as well. The owners Rebecca and Ian are so kind and friendly and always on hand to offer help and advice where you need it. We wouldn’t have seen half the amazing places we saw without their recommendations. Will definitely be coming back next year.

    The campsite was only a 15 minute drive to Durdle door.
    The showers and toilets were kept clean.
    Showers were surprisingly warm.
    There were washing up facilities and sponge and washing liquid supplied!
    It was lovely and quiet at night.
    You can pitch wherever you want!

    What a lovely campsite! There is a wonderful view of the hill, warm showers, clean facilities, the farmer was excellent! We were unfamiliar with the area, but he was able to direct us to brilliant local walks, views and attractions that weren’t teaming with tourists. There is also a great little shop on-site for forgotten essentials or renting out fire-pits. We really enjoyed our stay.

Local attractions

Beach time is a must when staying this close to the coast. Sandy Swanage beach (20 minutes’ drive) is a good bet for a family day out, with deckchairs, pedalos and loungers to hire and amusements for the kids. Wilder Studland (also 20 minutes) has a backdrop of heath and dunes along much of its four-mile stretch, and a naturist section for those seeking an all-over tan.

Down on the Jurassic Coast, top spots like Lulworth Cove, the famed stone arch Durdle Door and fossil-hunting hotspot Kimmeridge are all within a 20-minute drive, and it’s half an hour to Weymouth.

To explore a bit more of the area’s natural habitat, aim for Wareham Forest or the RSPB Arne nature reserve (both 10 minutes); not at all native but still providing much fun are the apes of Monkey World (10 minutes). Serve up a bit of history alongside with outings to the ruins of Corfe Castle (five minutes) and the collection of armoured vehicles at The Tank Museum (10 minutes).

Must see

  • Monkey World - Ape Rescue Centre (4.0 miles)
  • Corfe Castle (4.3 miles)
