Welcome to Acton Field Campsite set on the Purbeck hill with breath taking views over Swanage Bay.
We believe in the more simple style of family camping where you can choose your own pitch anywhere on our open plan grass areas.
A mobile grocery van visits the site providing fresh bread, vegetables, newspapers and other essential items. If you like to be able to walk to the pub for food and drink then we have The Kings Arms only about half a mile away in Langton Matravers. Otherwise there is the now world famous Square and Compass in Worth Matravers about three miles from the campsite.
Facilities include a simple toilet block with hot showers. The showers are on a meter so make sure you bring some 20p's! There is also a chemical disposal point on site and dustbin area which is emptied regularly.
Nearest beaches are at Swanage, about 3 miles away and Studland which is about 6 miles away.
Essential day trips include the scenic cliff-top walk from the village to swim at the Dancing Ledge tidal rock pool and caves. In 40 minutes you can walk along Priests Way down to Swanage Bay for a fish-and-chip beach supper, or to the famous Square and Compass pub in Worth Matravers. Buy a pint of cider and a pasty through a hole in the wall before relaxing on the pub's very own little slope…it could be a long stagger back.
Coming from Poole/Bournemouth/Dorchester, head for Wareham and follow the signs to Corfe Castle on the A351. On leaving Corfe Castle take the B3069 up to Kingston and then follow the ridge round to the left towards Langton Matravers. The campsite is on the second right turning after the village sign.
If you are coming from Swanage, as you leave the town follow the B3069 up onto the ridge into Langton Matravers. Pass Putland Farm and The Kings Arms on your left and carry on through the village. The campsite is the last turning on the left as you leave the village.
The facilities shown on this website are a guide only, and you should check with the campsite direct before making any booking. The UKCampsite.co.uk will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions
