A family-run touring caravan & camping site in




Norden Farm is a family-run touring caravan and camping site set on a working farm just outside of Corfe Castle on the Jurassic Coast, Dorset. The site is open from March 1st to October 31st (weather permitting). 


The campsite is set back from the main road within a gorgeous valley and each field has different views to offer.

There are four level grass fields, three with electric hook up and an additional six-acre free pitching field for tents and VW camper vans in peak season.

Campers are allocated particular electric pitches based on what they have booked, but specific pitches can be requested.

Please note that we are a grass site and have no hardstanding pitches.


Norden is ideally situated for using local transport; with two bus stops at the site entrance and the steam train to Swanage just a five-minute walk away. This makes Norden Farm the ideal base for exploring the wonderful Isle of Purbeck.

The site is within one mile of world-famous Corfe Castle and the ancient market town of Wareham is only 3.5 miles away. Studland Bay and the Seaside town of Swanage can be reached in 15 minutes by car.

There is a footpath leading from Norden Farm directly to the village of Corfe Castle. Here you will find four pubs along with several shops and the village bakery. Of course, you can also visit the castle ruins, now owned by the National Trust alongside their gift shop and tea rooms.


There are numerous other cycling and walking routes directly from the site and campers are granted access to the top of the Purbeck Ridgeway, from where they can enjoy panoramic views of Poole Harbour and the Isle of Purbeck.

The reception is open every day and stocked with local transport timetables and an abundance of flyers for local attractions and events. Staff are filled with local knowledge so feel free to ask the friendly team for their recommendations!

There are two large facilities blocks on-site, so wherever you stay you’ll never be far from one.


Facilities include:



Norden Farm Shop is exceptionally well-stocked to meet campers’ needs, selling a wide range of groceries, fresh produce and camping essentials, as well as local goods and beautiful plants in the garden centre.

The shop also has a gas canister exchange service (Camping Gaz or Calor) and sells bagged ice, and a good choice of fresh, chilled & frozen products.


We recently installed a milk vending machine that provides fresh local plastic-free organic whole milk from Hollis Mead Dairy 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

You can fill your own containers, and bottles are also available for purchase directly from the machine.

The machine also dispenses milkshakes in a range of popular flavours, along with butter, cream and Kefir, and with cheese coming soon!


Camping isn’t for everyone, so Norden offers several different accommodation types suitable for the whole family.


Our traditional farm cottage that can sleep four is also located on the estate. It has a private garden.


Norden House, a large self-catering holiday let, is also available to hire and can accommodate 14 people.
