Woodyhyde Campsite


Situated on the Isle of Purbeck, a stone's throw away from Dorset's famed Jurassic Coast. Our family-run campsite has 160 unmarked pitches on 3 fields across 13 acres where wild deer, pheasants and birds roam. This spacious campsite with broad, countryside views never feels full even during the peak camping season. One field is bordered by a steam train, linking Corfe Castle and Swanage. Our facilities block houses 18 showers (including separate male and female disabled shower/toilet). 100 electrical hook-up points are available and 20 of which are hard standings for motorhomes and camper vans. A large well stocked shop and Off Licence providing a wide selection of fresh foods, camping essentials and camping equipment. Dogs are welcome on our campsite with the exception of field 3 which is a no dogs field. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times and any fouling must be collected and disposed of in the waste bins provided.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the campsite. Code available from reception on arrival. 

We have recently been award the David Bellamy Silver Award for our campsite and are continuing to improve and develop the site year on year.
