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

went with group of various friends, stayed on for a week once they had gone and two lots came back for the second weekend. Site undulates but there are some prime spots. It is a windy site up on a hill, but everyones tents & awnings seemed fine. Good spot for a half hour walk to the Square & Compass... More

There are no pre-set pitches so it's a good idea to turn up not too late so that you can find a flat bit of field that's not too close by anybody else .... especially if you have noisy children and dogs! Toilets and showers are basic but sufficient. There's freezers to keep your ice packs in, washing up sinks... More
