Norden Farm Campsite

4.7 (680 reviews)

Norden Farm is a family-run camping and touring site set on a working farm just outside Corfe Castle, on the southern coast of beautiful Dorset. With easy transport links, friendly staff, and great facilities, this is the perfect place for a coastal getaway.

Norden Farm is located in the heart of the Isle of Purbeck- set back from the main road, but with easy access. It is a rural farm site and may not be suitable for those looking for ready-made entertainment!

There are three adjacent, level grass fields offering electric hook up pitches, with an additional six- acre, non- electric field for tents and camper vans in peak season. There are no hard-standing pitches at present.

Onsite facilities include flush toilets and chemical disposal points, hot showers and private wash basins, a family room, disabled toilets and wet room (ambulant or aided only), separate laundry and washing-up rooms, a well-stocked farm shop, and a pooch parlour (a wet room and warm shower for dogs). For children, there is a play area and ball games court.

Most facilities are free for campers to use. WIFI is available for a small fee and likewise a device charging service (including car batteries). A freezer block service is also available.

In addition to camping, a traditional farm cottage is also available for hire. This sleeps four and is situated on site, with its own private garden. Norden House is also available as a large self- catering holiday home that sleeps up to fourteen people.

Norden Farm is conveniently located for using public transport, making us the perfect base for exploring the Isle of Purbeck! Norden has two bus stops outside our site entrance, and two steam railway stations a short walk away, making access to Swanage or Poole simple and easy.

Norden is also only 3.5 miles from the ancient town of Wareham, where you will find an array of pubs, shops and the River Frome. Wareham also has a train link to Weymouth or London.

This campsite also boasts a footpath (taking roughly 20 minutes) directly from our campsite into the historic village of Corfe Castle, where you will find three pubs, the bakery and the castle ruins!

From the site, you can take a short drive to beaches such as Studland, Sandbanks and Lulworth Cove! Families will love exploring local attractions such as Dorset Water Park, The Tank Museum and Monkey World!

Something for everyone!

From start to finish we were overwhelmed with how lovely and accommodating Norden Farm and their owners/staff were. The grounds were very well kept and there are lots of spacious pitches for tents, caravans and motorhomes. It is a working farm, but this doesn’t impact your stay whatsoever. There is a lovely farm shop onsite that is vast (and not so expensive compared to others we used in the past) and there’s plenty of local produce to buy, which is great to support local farms and suppliers. The produce and meat especially are superb quality! There is an onsite food hut for breakfast and evening meal which is great when you want a night off the bbq or stove. There is a lovely walk direct from the site to Corfe Castle and the village too. We have a dog stroller and we were fine. The site itself is a good 20 mins drive to Swanage but nicer than staying in swanage due to the traffic in our opinion. We will definitely be back to stay in the future!
