Norden Farm Campsite

4.7 (713 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. We have a fridge and freezer for our campers, along with a locker facility for charging phones.

Most facilities are free for campers to use. WIFI is available for a small fee.

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!

Not as quiet as our first visit

East, Kevin - 11/11/2022

We were looking forward to our second visit to Norden Farm as we had enjoyed our holiday back in June 22 it was so peaceful, not so this time you could hear road noise until the early hours, weather it was because we were on a different section this time we could not put our fingers on it. But othe than that the team at the spotted pig on top form food was excellent shame I didn’t realise that it was their last weekend before shutting down for the winter never mind the deserved the rest.Will look at again in the new year perhaps for my birthday weekend again. Farm shop caters for everything all at very reasonable prices

Perfect Dorset campsite

Hancox, Lee & Jayne - 04/11/2022

Norden farm is a perfect campsite for a country side, seaside holiday, the Jurassic coast surrounded you Swanage a traditional British seaside town, Studland Beach and heathland, Swanage steam trains and much much more.The campsite has 2 shower blocks cleaned to a high standard and 2 washing up areas all in good condition also washing machines tokens from the shop.A really good shop with everything you might need from grocery items to those tent pegs you forgot.A lovely garden centre expanding this winter I believe.Several small fields with electric hook up very reliable power and one large field for non-electric A catering hut with good simple food breakfasts etc.Very friendly staff and nice feeling about the place it has rules but just sensible ones we would all expect.Some farm animals are in pens to see and fresh eggs from the shop.We have had many lovely holidays with friends and family here and I hope reading this you will as well.

Fabulous campsite

Johnson, Isabella - 03/11/2022

5

We had a fantastic stay at here over October half term. Staff were very friendly. Toilets and showers were very clean with lots of hot water (even had good water pressure!) good laundry facilities. Our children loved the play areas and animals and the farm shop was the best campsite shop I’ve ever encountered! We would definitely stay here again. Campsite is also very well located for exploring the local area, had days out at Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy, Swanage and Studland Bay all within a short drive.

A short stay whilst assessing DofE

Roberts, Martyn - 03/11/2022

I was assessing a DofE award group in and around the Isle of Purbeck. The campsite proved very central and an ideal base. I was able to get supplies in Corfe, although the campsite also had a great shop. Everything was fine and it was perfect for my short stay.

Clean camp site

Thompson, Rob - 03/11/2022

5

Went to this site in October, very clean all round, took granddaughter who just did not want to get out of showers, her words , this is so nice and hot I don’t want to get out, shower toilet blocks cleaned ever day and was spotless. Shop expensive so take your own food. You can hire a fire pits but I would use a bbq, as £30 deposit and £20 to hire it all in all good time

Autumn at Norden Farm

Marsh, Keith - 02/11/2022

5

I have now stayed at Norden farm a quite number of times. Usually with the family Caravan, but also sometime just camping with friends. It is one of my favourite campsites in the UK and offers a unique camping experience. Not only due to its excellent location but also due to it lively atmosphere created by the random farm animals, birds and children running around the site and enjoying themselves. Of course the staff are always at hand to help out if you have a problem and are very friendly. The only issue with my autumn trip is that the site can be very dark this time of the year. Which makes wondering around the site at night without a torch a bit torturous, especially on wet evening. A few low level lights around the water taps and on the entrance to the various fields would be a great help. Other than that the lights, I'm very satisfied with the campsite, the toilets are spotless and the food in the local pub, (Grey Hound) is great.

It’s our go to site when staying in the purbecks. Friendly staff. Great facilities and shop. Brilliant location for walks and off peak prices means we can stay longer to make the most of it.
