We loved the site and all facilities clean and satisfactory. Lovely views from our pitch. Would prefer if tents could be in a seperate field to motor homes though as the opening and closing of doors (especially sliding doors!) in the early hours drove us crazy! Also there were several dog owners not obeying the on leads at all times rule meaning we had several dogs visiting us and one even leaving it’s mark on a bin liner we had by our porch. Not good!

Hello Tim, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are glad that you like the site and facilities, but are sorry to hear that you were disturbed by inconsiderate camper van and dog owners. Please feel free to report any dogs off lead and we will send a member of staff to speak to the owners. We do not have separate fields for types of unit, as we prefer an informal layout. Our non-electric field is for tents and small camper vans only but not Motor homes or Caravans. You may find it more to your liking there.

Ok I understand its a working farm but the constant buzz of chainsaws and hedgetrimmers starting at 08.30 one morning and not finishing till 17.00 wasnt pleasant plus an excavator sorting the pond area on my first day. Why the groundstaff couldnt just wait another 10 days till the site closed to carry out the cutting of the cottage hedgerows and ground work I dont know.

26/10 Hello Nick, thank you for taking the time to post a review and for your feedback. Our own logs that we sell are in recycled plastic sacks. Most of our customers bring them back, time and time again, for us to re-use, as they are so strong. We tried buying nets to use last year but they were not strong enough and are no better for the environment. We are open to suggestions if you have any, for a better alternative. We try to be as green as we can in every area, recycling everything possible. We hope to see you again another time. Kind regards from the Campsite team...Read less.

Hello Linda, we are grateful to you for taking the time to post this review. Our rut road is actually tarmacked with humps to try to reduce speed. We do indeed take speeding very seriously on this site and have a strict limit of 5mph. We would only speak to you if you are obviously speeding. None of our staff are aggressive. They would have spoken to you professionally, but firmly to slow down. We are a working farm and have animals loose on site that are slow to react to vehicles such as peacocks and hens etc. We are also a family campsite and a lot of our campers bring children.

The park is very clean and tidy. It is in a beautiful location close to Corfe castle, swanage and an ideal base for ramblers. For children there is a small play park and animals to visit. Facilities are excellent and very clean. Farm shop carries a wide range of goods from camping essentials, pet food, food and fresh bread too. The site is very keen to keep green and encourage campers to recycle there waste. If there was an improvement to be made I would suggest a little lighting along the road route to the bathroom as when dark it is easy to trip on uneven ground. The automatic lights whilst an excellent idea do switch off fairly quickly and you need to flap about in order to switch them on again, this can be quite frightening for younger guests. Pitches are a good size and staff on hand if help is required.

We chose the site as it had been recommended by a friend. The staff in the reception/shop were very welcoming and helpful. They even asked if we minded the cat asleep on the counter, which of course we didn't. Dogs are also welcome in the shop. We loved the laid back atmosphere and the working farm surroundings. The goats were particularly friendly. The pitches were well laid out and generous sizes. Don't be put off by the amount of rules on the website - they help make your stay safe and pleasant, as well as protecting the livestock.

Norden Farm campsite is very close to Corfe Castle, in fact only a 20min walk. It has several other great walks in the vicinity. It has a well stocked shop on site selling probably anything you are likely to need should you forget to bring something.

We went as a last minute break in mid October to have a break from a hectic period at home. The cost was just £11/night inc electric for the two of us.

We enjoyed the peace of the area and would have explored if the weather had not been very much against us. But it was October.

We liked the grass pitches, it felt more like camping than being surrounded by lumps of concrete.

The on site shop is excellent, the people in it knowledgeable and helpful.

We are relatively local but would love to stay here again as it is very different from being in a town....Read less.

We went off-peak so it was pleasantly quiet. Wonderful location - a 15-20 minute walk into Corfe and right on the Purbeck Way: perfect for walkers. Everything was delightful, including the weather! Great facilities (toilets, showers, washing-up facilities, electric hook-up, and very well-stocked shop - the best campsite shop I have ever experienced). There was even a duck pond. Farm animals too, so great for kids. Will definitely go back when we next explore this beautiful part of the country....Read less.

The park is excellent and true value for money. I needed a centralish base in purbeck as I was on the final leg of the SW coast path. I was only there at night but really loved the place. I loved the peacocks, the geese , goats etc. It was all very relaxed and gentle. The big shop is fabulous and you wouldn't find more helpful and friendly staff anywhere. It's more like staying on a friendly farm than some commercial park. I would rename the fields tho, found that a tad confusing. First class place ...Top marks.

What a great site with Well above average facilities! We camped without electrical hook up plus our dog. The facilities (showers, toilets, wash up room, and pooch parlour!) were cleaned daily to a very good standard, the farm shop has everything you need to make meals, including a good range of camping equipment, and you are less than a 15 min drive from the nearest town if you need more. Staff are friendly, farm animals are a great attraction, you may hear a funny screeching noise at night but this is only the alpaca who are used to guard the sheep. We stayed in the Top Field and had a good range of weather (wind, rain and sun) the field drained well and the tree line shelters you from Northerly winds. If you are a keen walker and enjoy national trust sites, I cannot recommend this site enough. Plus it is extremely dog friendly and there are plenty of pubs, cafes in the area that are dog friendly too. If you need inspiration on where to go just take a look at the posters in the wash up room. Can’t wait to visit again next year!...Read less.

Hello Neil, thank you for taking the time to post a review. I am sorry if you found the shower block in need of a clean, if there was something in particular, a word to any member of staff would have remedied that. As you will be able to see, we are praised highly for the cleanliness of our facilities. The dilapidated building in between the farm and the campsite is often of huge historical interest to some campers, but it is empty. We are fully aware that some of the barns need repair and there are plans in place to do so. However, this is very costly and must be done correctly.

Loved the peacocks and turkeys roaming around ! It's a working farm, so expect some farmyard smells as you enter, and an array of broken down sheds and barns as you drive through... however, the shop, staff, field itself (we were in the Donkey field) and showers (Not push buttons - and controlled temperatures which you often get - fab!)

Lovely quiet spot, walking/biking distance from Corfe Castle which is delightful. Lovely beaches around you... bit tricky for dogs who like to let them off lead - quite a few restrictions for dog lovers all around. There was a wedding on the Saturday night which had a very loud drum beat going on till around midnight in the main house, next to the farm shop area, which was a bit annoying, but they did put signs up to let us know beforehand. Overall, really enjoyed our stay....Read less.

Hello Nicholas, thank you for taking the time to post a review. We are in the process of repairing the old barns and sheds that are no longer in use. There are beaches locally where dogs can be off the lead in the summer. However most of them have restrictions during the high season. We are very sorry to hear that you were disturbed by noise from the wedding. We did speak to them several times about the volume. The lovely rural smells are what tells you that you really are in the countryside. We hope to see you again another time.

Lovely camping ground with lots of space. We stayed for 6 nights mid Sep and plenty of room for everyone but probably facilities a little more stretched when high season and weekends.

We chose Norden Farm based entirely on its' location. The facilities are excellent, the site well kept and the farm shop meets everyday needs. Pitches are clearly marked spacious enough for a twin axle 26' 'van plus car and awning.

The only slight glitch is the access from the approach road to the main field area. Our towing length is very long with a 26' van plus Landrover Discovery the angle to get through the gate required careful positioning and forward manoeuvering. You only go in once so it's OK but could be improved. Exit is in a straight line so no problem.

We have camped at Norden Farm for about 10 years, first in a tent and for the past few years in a campervan. It's fairly local to us and we know the surrounding area of Corfe Castle and Swanage quite well. We aim to visit at least once a year for a relaxing break in familiar surroundings. We have always loved the campsite itself for the farm animals, the wide open space of the valley and the facilities.......however the only slight niggle I ever had was that the showers were the push button squirty type which were frankly pretty rubbish. .....but this year on a much-needed break I discovered that the showers have been changed -to the type we have at home!! Fully adjustable for height, pressure and temperature! -and they don't switch off just at the moment when you have shampoo in your eyes! Now the site is basically perfect!

My partner an I visited Norden campsite for a long weekend at the beginning of September. We brought our own tent and we were very glad to have paid just a few extra pounds for the electric hook up. Mobiles and small electrical appliances can be charged in the campsite office for £1 - £2 each time so the electric hook up is definitely best value for money and convenience. The campsite is clean, quiet and well-kept, as are the shower blocks, toilets and washing facilities. The on-site shop is very well stocked and as well as food and drink it also offers a wide range of necessary camping items you may have left at home! Corfe is a beautiful village with 3 lovely, characterful, country pubs (though meals are a little pricey so think ahead) - you may prefer to eat at the campsite in the evening from the tasty on-site snack van before venturing to Corfe for a few drinks! With that in mind, for the 15 minute walk to Corfe in the dark, DON'T FORGET YOUR TORCH! :) A fab weekend, we'll definitely return again in future....Read less.

Hello there, our pitches are indeed serviced over the winter time. They are often rolled, forked over, then re seeded more than once. We do everything possible to improve the condition of the pitches during our closed season. However, after many weeks of dry weather, with the pitches often being used by tents, or awnings for up to 2 weeks at a time, the grass gets worn away or yellowed. I suspect the problem was the same for other all grass sites. We have also this season, introduced a rest period of 2 days after long stays to help the grass recover in between stays.

This site is beautiful and very well maintained, staff friendly, immaculate facilities! I camped in the top field, with only a few other tents, nice setting, but the wind funnelling down between the hills was relentless! I couldn’t move my van away from the drive away awning, the wind was too strong, and couldn’t have a camp fire in the evenings. I don’t know whether this was just a particularly windy weekend, or whether it’s the location of the field, in relation to the hill ranges that amplifies the wind. I think I wouldn’t stay in the top field again because of this, but would request to be in the lower fields that have a bit of cover from other vehicles....Read less.

I understand it is a working farm but the amount of rubbish around,excessive wood piles, numerous rats nd mice running round the barns. As a health and saftey officer the barns were supported with flimsy beams and a derelict hut sitting on saddle stones looked like it was about to fall into the road i am amazed you have not been warned about this.Also very load music played late one night from the House.

We have stayed here in the donkey field several times and it has been quite and almost deserted with very few children,this time full of children running around and very busy even the families with children next to us were annoyed at the noisey children and families.

We were looking to stay in the Corfe Castle area, and having reviewed the details of Norden Farm, on the ukcampsite.co.uk website, we decided that would be where we would book.

We were not disappointed!

We were greeted by a number of geese and turkeys, as we arrived! Efficient booking in at reception, our pitch was in Donkey Field, which we were pleased with, as it was a smaller field than the others, and was not far away from the facilities, which were excellent. The shop was well stocked, with everything you could possibly need, even veggie burgers and sausages in the freezer, and all the prices were reasonable. It’s an easy walk into Corfe, either a footpath alongside the road or up through the campsite over the hill, through some woodland, and a five minute walk to Norden station, the bus stop is outside the site entrance, with routes to Swanage and Wareham. We saw lots of deer in the adjacent fields, each evening, which was a real treat.

A very good campsite and we will certainly be back....Read less.

Large, level site with a fair number of EHUs and plenty of space for non-electric units. Grass pitches only, which might occasionally be an issue in/after heavy rain (though I have never found it a problem on any of my several visits). It is a working farm, so expect some noise (and smells!) in parts of the site. There are a few slightly scruffy areas of the farm. But that and the animals arguably add to the charm. Good, reasonably-priced shop, with a small Garden Centre. Good 'facilities'. Children's playground, which, together with the farm environment, might go down well with families.

Excellent location for visiting the attractive Purbeck peninsula: a short walk to the Swanage (Steam) Railway station and 'Park & Ride' at Norden. Bus stop immediately outside site, with frequent buses to Swanage/Wareham/Poole/Bournemouth. Pleasant walk (approx. 15 mins), with magnificent views, to Corfe Castle. I certainly intend to return to this site....Read less.

I first visited Norden Farm about 15 years ago and revisit approx every 3 years. Since my last visit the shop has been rebuilt and another facility block built. Despite improvements to the facilities Norden Farm doesn't lose it's identity. It's a farm, with farm animals and farm smells, wide open spaces with wonderful views.

The facilities are fantastic, water in the showers hot and high pressure. The facilities are clean and really well maintained. Breakfast and dinner can be had from the catering van, other supplies purchased from a very intelligently stocked shop.

There is so much to do in the area, bicycle hire, lovely rides, Corfe with it's castle and beer festivals. Swanage the home of some of the best fish and chips, a steam train, a chain ferry, Brownsea Island with its red squirrels all wrapped up in fantastic scenery.

This caravan and campsite is fantastic. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The showers/toilets are cleaned meticulously daily.......by the next morning they are quite grubby but that really is down to other campers using them and not maintaining the clean the standard. There is a great family room with a small bath for babies. Dogs are welcomed and it is lovely to see them not having to be tied up constantly if they are well behaved. There is a great mix of seasonal caravanners interspersed with people taking short breaks and holidays and this works really well. The pizza van twice weekly is superb. Sally's chip van is there every morning and evening. I personally am not keen on the Hog Roast but it always appears busy. There is a well stocked shop.

Our most recent visit to Norden Farm was our third, and we will definitely be returning again. The cleanliness and site facilities are top notch and it is so handy to have the shop on site. We particularly love that you can hire a fire pit as in my opinion a camp fire is a must to keep the evening chills away. The campsite is also well positioned for visiting Corfe Castle and the Dorset coast....Read less.

Stayed at Norden Farm Campsite again over the August bank holiday weekend and had a great time with our family. We were lucky enough to get three adjacent pitches so spending time together was no problem.

Facilities were well maintained and cleaned on a regular basis. Waste and recycling bins were emptied regularly.

We didn't use the wifi, preferring instead to use our mobile phones as 'hotspots' (signal strength from the EE network was OK for this and gave adequate internet speed).

Being so close to Corfe Castle, we walked down to the village to join the ale and cider festival at one of the pubs - an easy walk on an off-road footpath. Our younger family members had a great time at the nearby Dorset Water Park and we had some beach time at Studland.

We like the Norden Farm site as it is well managed and has a sensible policy for the day of departure, allowing departures up to 11:00 a.m. The price is a little on the high side in comparison with other sites, but this has to be offset against the range of facilities offered....Read less.

We have been staying at Norden Farm for many years, as a great campsite for easy access to Swanage and Corfe Castle. The park has improved each year we have returned, with excellent washing facilities and bigger shop selling a wide range of goods. We love the farm part of the park and the dog walks with access from the park.

The short walk to the local pub at Corfe along a lovely country lane and the easy access to Norden Station on the Swanage railway are also a great plus for us, as we don't want to have to drive on the busy roads in the height of the season....Read less.

Norden farm is a great place to stay with the family. Our pitch was wide enough for our motorhome, driveaway awning and car.

Hook up was 16amp.

Being a farm it’s a great place for kids to see farm animals, especially peacocks, geese and goats - which are hilarious when they start their noise.

The playground is great for kids. The showers are the best I’ve every experienced on a campsite. The shop is really well stocked and the staff are friendly and helpful.

It’s a very well run and organised campsite and compared to the cost of other campsites in the area is very good value. The cost for 2 adults and 4 kids with motorhome and awning for 2 nights was around £70.00. It would have cost £90 per night at nearby Corfe Castle Campsite.

Hello there, thanks for the review and the feedback. Sometimes, when it is very busy in the shop it is hard to concentrate and hear what campers are saying, when booking in, especially if there is a child making a lot of noise in the corner with the toys. We do occasionally have to ask them to stop, if the parents are elsewhere in the shop. Excited campers and children often meet others from their group,in front of the campdesk and the noise levels at times can be hard to work around.

We had a brilliant time at Norden, we thought it was very well priced for such an organised and pleasant campsite. The children loved the animals and riding their bikes around site. We appreciated the clear signs saying that children and animals took priority over drivers and were pleased to see most drivers paid heed to this. The shop was well stocked and not extortionately priced at all, unlike other campsite shops we have been too!

We enjoyed walking to Corfe Castle and the steam train from the site.

The staff were brilliant, even going to the trouble of calling us one day while we were out to tell us the winds had got up and we might need to come back to reinforce our awning!

The only improvement I can think of is that the toilets could do with more regular cleaning. We did appreciate that they were checked regularly and they were never messy or out of toilet paper, but they were a bit smelly. We also found our pitch which was right next to the toilets to be quite noisy due to the hand dryers and people coming and going, but fortunately it did quieten down after 10pm.

All in all we thought it was brilliant value for money and a lovely place to holiday!...Read less.

We returned to one of our favourite campsites for our daughters birthday weekend! As always the staff and facilities were superb! Very family friendly! A lovely short 0.8 mile walk to corfe castle for a visit to the castle, the traditional sweet shop, the amazing bakery and of course the pubs! Bankes Pub has a lovely garden with the steam trains going passed the end but watch out for the wasps!!! The beach at Swanage is small but lovely or there is Studland not to far away! We love to come to Norden with family and friends! So much to do and so many places to explore and when you are back at camp you can hire a fire pit or visit the burger/pizza van! Hog roast available every weekend although that is a bit pricy for what you get! The children never tire of visiting the animals, the park or the football pitches!...Read less.

We have used this site for some years now. It is well located for us as we Jetski in Swanage. The site has ample space and plenty of room for car and trailers. The food van on site is very good and the facilities are kept clean ans tidy most of the time. Being farm based it has interesting machinery and animals to look at. They also have a dedicated play area for smaller children and a field for ball games. Great place for the walkers with many paths close by.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Norden Farm. It was great to have plenty of room for the children to roam around, the local scenery was beautiful, and the site was well kept and managed. It was lovely to have the farm shop there with a selection of food, not just the basics, and it was helpful to have other cooked food options available for when we didn't feel like cooking - the pizza on a Tuesday/Wednesday night was delicious! We also enjoyed the hog roast and musical evening on our first Friday and our worries about noise into the night due to our 3 children were needless as (possibly due to the earlier sunset) the festivities were over by 9. We have been to this part of Dorset several times over the last few years and it was great to be in a central location to explore all our favourite places; Corfe Castle, Swanage, Kimmeridge Bay, Lulworth Castle and Blue lake to name but a few. The Top field may have been a bit bigger than we'd normally look for, and it was certainly windier on occasion than we'd prefer, but overall we had no complaints - bar the rain, but we don't hold anyone responsible for that - and would happily recommend the site to other people....Read less.

The facilities were good and kept clean but with the volume of people using the toilets and showers, by the morning they were a little tired but still very usable. Apparently the mens were not so good and the toilets could be fresher. Perhaps a few more toilets could ease this in busy periods. The washing up facilities were good.There were washing and drying facilities, and although we didn't use these, they were excellent to have.

The shop was excellent and really good value. Having the animals on the farm was lovey. The different pop up food vans on site was a great idea. The kids play area was good. Excellent location with beautiful walks. The staff were very helpful and friendly....Read less.

We have been staying at Norden Farm for over 40 years and have many happy memories of great family holidays there. The surrounding area and coast line gives so much to do in this beautiful part of Dorset, regardless of the weather and we have been to and enjoyed most of them over the years. Norden Farm is conveniently and centrally positioned for all these attractions, especially for soaking up some rays on Studland beach, which has to be one of the very best in the UK. It pleases me that just like their parents did, my grandchildren are also discovering the delights of Dorset holidays and loving staying on the farm. Over the many years my wife and I have seen the site improve greatly and now in our opinion, under Ben's watchful eye and good management the site is at its very best.

We go to Norden Farm every year and have never had a bad time... Even in sometimes less than perfect weather. It is a safe welcoming place to stay and being a working farm has many natural interests for all ages. The toilets and showers are always clean and well maintained with powerful showers in the main block. My only criticism of the shower block is that it could do with a few more lights and with sensors that keep them on for longer. The location is amazing and beautiful and there are many varied things to do in the surrounding area. Tip for everyone... The local supermarkets deliver shopping to your pitch. Saves on critical space in the car but the onsite shop is also excellent and has fresh eggs from different types of bird. If you go to Norden Farm once, you'll go every year....Read less.
