Local area The site is very near to Herston Halt which is a stop on the famous Swanage steam railway. What better place to begin your adventure? - from here steam trains travel through magnificent scenery on a restored railway line to charming Corfe Castle and Swanage town centre.

Tickets for the Swanage Railway are sold on the camp site.

Romantic Corfe Castle towering majestically at the heart of unspoilt country side is a short ride away.

There are many picturesque villages of mellow stones, cob and thatch in the area with country inns and summer barbeques. Holiday activities abound such as diving, sailing, fishing, golfing - something for everyone!

From the camp site you will be able to discover glorious sandy beaches and breathtaking coastal scenery, fossils, dinosaur footprints and a wonderful diversity of birds and wild life.

The natural features and scenery really are spectacular - flowery hay meadows, gorse-studded heathland and gently rolling downland compete for attention with rugged limestone cliffs, golden sands and sheltered bays.

From Studland Bay near Swanage to Exmouth in Devon, this unique stretch of coastline is one of the natural wonders of the world. The outstanding geology represents 185 million years of earth history. Purbeck's delightful mix of unspoilt coast and countryside lies mostly within an area of outstanding natural beauty. Recently designated as a classic place to see how underlying rocks control the development of landscape and coastline.

The heritage coast is lined with spectacular geological features. Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Old Harry Rocks, the Fossil Forest and contorted 'crumple' of Stair Hole are dramatically picturesque, especially when viewed from a boat. The South West Coast Path follows the whole of Purbeck's coastline. Starting at Shell Bay the path runs alongside three miles of glorious sandy beaches en route to the pretty village of Studland. Just beyond here are the Old Harry Rocks at Handfast Point.

Children will find lots more to do in the beachside Recreation Ground where, on Sunday afternoons in summer, open air band concerts take place. Music and festivals are very much a part of Swanage's busy events calendar; Blues Weekend in March, the renowned Jazz Weekend and the fun filled Regatta and Carnival Week in July and August. In September the town is filled with lively music and dance during its Folk Festival.
