We have been in contact with all our pre-booked guests progressively through the year to advise and update and have maintained a comprehensive information page on our website throughout. Deposits paid for bookings that could not be honoured have been rolled forward to a future date up to the end of 2021. We have issued a set of COVID-19 Rules and Etiquette to run in conjunction with our normal Site Rules to help those that we can accommodate feel safer. Whilst playgrounds remain closed, we are relaxing our rules on grass field games on site to encourage children to stay close to their family.
Our Inspector's view
This delightful farm site offers traditional camping but with excellent toilet and shower facilities. It is a very dog-friendly site and is ideally suited for those who want a peaceful, rural getaway or enjoy country pursuits. There are four level grass fields, three with electric hook-up and an additional six-acre free pitching field for tents and VW camper vans in peak season. A well-stocked farm shop sell groceries, fresh produce and camping essentials. Its location is very close to Corfe Castle, so it’s convenient for visiting the Isle of Purbeck and Swanage (the Swanage Railway now runs seasonal trains from Swanage through to Wareham). There is a holiday cottage and Norden House (exclusive use) for hire.

About the area
Dorset means rugged varied coastlines and high chalk downlands. Squeezed in among the cliffs and set amid some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery is a chain of picturesque villages and seaside towns. Along the coast you’ll find the Lulworth Ranges, which run from Kimmeridge Bay in the east to Lulworth Cove in the west. Together with a stretch of East Devon, this is Britain’s Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, noted for its layers of shale and numerous fossils embedded in the rock. Among the best-known natural landmarks on this stretch of the Dorset coast is Durdle Door, a rocky arch that has been shaped and sculpted to perfection by the elements. The whole area has the unmistakable stamp of prehistory.
Away from Dorset’s magical coastline lies a landscape with a very different character and atmosphere, but one that is no less appealing. Here, winding, hedge-lined country lanes lead beneath lush, green hilltops to snug, sleepy villages hidden from view and the wider world. The people of Dorset are justifiably proud of the achievements of Thomas Hardy, its most famous son, and much of the county is immortalised in his writing.
