Not Cool Camping!

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and it was not a pleasant experience. This camp site was so over crowded I question it's safety. Their relaxed pitching policy was taken way too far and the camp rules completely overlooked, with revenue definitely taking priority over comfort and safety. We came home one day from a day out to find a tent either side, each one metre from ours. There was no room for our car - clearly pitching was not monitored. The camp site owner was totally unwilling to resolve the issue. Won't be returning.

brilliant site

We love this site we have been coming for years and it never fails to impress. Well tended pitches clean showers and toilets, water is always hot. Well stocked shop. Not forgetting the steam trains.

May break

From arrival to departure, this relaxing family orientated campsite hits all the spots. Roomy, spacious site with a choice of well tended pitches. There are a large amount of electric hook up points spread across the site leaving it up to you where you want to pitch. This is the sixth year we have visited this site and improvements and changes are made every time we visit. There is the added attraction of the Swanage steam railway which runs through my families favourite field, the kids love waving at the train as it chuff's it's way past.. There is a well equipped shop that stocks an array of equipment, food, snacks, alcohol. Facilities are also clean tidy and plentiful.

Getting There

From the village of Corfe Castle, take the A351 towards Swanage. A mile outside Corfe, look out for the ‘Woodyhyde’ sign and turning on the right, then follow the track under the bridge and into the campsite.

Take the train to Wareham, then bus 142 (not very regular, unfortunately) to Harman's Cross. The bus will stop at the top of Valley Road, and the campsite is about 350 metres down the track from the main road.
