I was amazed at some of the negative reviews of this campsite. It by far one of my favourite campsites so much so we came back three weeks after our first visit. The site is a beautiful rolling meadow which is more rolling than bumpy. There is a loads of room between pitches (there rule is 6m or more) with... More

The website makes this camp site look great however it's very bumpy - there are very few flat areas to pitch tents so it's likely you'll have to make do with a slope! Upon arrival we immediately turned around and searched for another camp site but unfortunately they were all fully booked. Wasn't impressed with the lukewarm showers (that cost... More

If you want a basic, stick your tent up in a field campsite this is for you. There are little outcrops to pitch on and little valleys, it's great and the views over swanage are first rate, as are the stars at night. Facilities again basic but adequate, clean with a few resident spiders here and there but that's camping... More

we decided to visit Dorset for 3 nights camping, checked various campsites online and Acton Field sounded great. we phoned to make sure sure we had a pitch, confirmed that there was a no noise policy, as we have a 2yr and 4yr old. all good was the answer and we made the 5hr journey to Dorset. as we approached...

Been here a few times before but not for many years and not in peak season. We camped with a hike tent for two nights a Saturday & Sunday. We had booked in advance but i'm not sure if that actually counted for anything. On arrival we were told that it was busy but just to find a spot, luckily... More

I've just come back from a short week break here. This was our annual camping met where 10 families go camping together. The site is basic but ideally located just on the outskirts of Swanage with a great view over the bay. Good walking routes are easily accessed. The site is very uneven and for a large group like ours,... More

This is a field. With tents. And a fabulous view over Swanage. It very basic but the shower and wash area are clean and functional. However, when the week end crowds descend, it becomes horribly crowded, people pitch anywhere and the spartan facilities are not enough.

This is a lovely campsite for those wanting views and more adhoc camping, rather than glamour and comfort. The site is situated on the edge of Langton Matrathers, just outside of Swanage. The site gives spectacular views over Swanage and the there is walks to the costal paths at Dancing Edge, about a mile away. This site is windswept but... More

First time camping in Swanage and very good value. No need to pre book and can choose own pitch. Really good value, clean basic facilities and beautiful location. Close to Swanage and Corfe with a distant sea view. Hoping to return.

Not bad at all. Up high so can be a bit gusty but was not really a problem as the views are lovely. A rather undulating field but this adds to the ad hoc and more relaxed camping feel. We stayed when there were over 50 D of E kids using it as a stop off for a three day... More
