 This campsite was recommended to us by friends who have stayed a few time. The shop is good and sells everything you could want. The facilities (we were end of season so only the main ones were open) were spotless, great showers, cubicles with sinks. Auto lighting could stay on a little bit longer, Iím pretty quick going for a wee but they still turned off!

The washing up area was very good and the dog wash area looked very good!.

The free WiFI was welcome and worked where we were.

Personally I think the pitches are a bit small and I prefer a few trees and hedges around rather than a big open field but that is personal preference.

Lots af great things to do from the site, walk to Corfe castle or Wareham - both lovely walks. The woods by the site are lovely too. Fantastic countryside.

Buses are easy to get from just outside the site. Loads of peacocks wandering around that arenít bother by people or dogs.

 The only thing that we felt could be an improvement would be an indication as where to park on arrival to check in.

Other than that all was fine, site and amenities all well kept, enjoyed our stay very much.

 This was a family return to camping after a 5 year or more break and a first trip for our 2 year old grand daughter. Just out of the school holidays so the site was starting to empty out and the 'extra' facilities (entertainment, catering) were running down.

This was ideal for us, we prefer 'quiet', and our granddaughter who had acres of empty space to run around.

The on site shop was ideal for the few bits of kit and food that we had forgotten. Phone charging cabinets were a very welcome innovation.

Other facilities on site were clean and well maintained.

Our pitches in the Top Field were flat and the grass was well kept.

The animals on site were the highlight for our granddaughter, running off to visit them at every opportunity.

A visit to Studland Bay beach, where we spent most of the day, was brilliant, warm and sunny.

The steam train, from just outside the camp, through to Swanage was great.

A riverside fish and chip dinner was a great way to round off a shopping trip to Sainsbury's at Wareham.

Overall, we had a lovely short holiday we would thoroughly recommend the site, especially outside of school holidays, and for those with toddlers.

 My wife and I, along with our 3 year old Spaniel had 2 very enjoyable nights at Norden Farm campsite.

I love camping - my wife doesnít and rarely comes with me. However, even she enjoyed the great location, campsite shop with everything we needed ( and lots we didnít but couldnít resist), the peacock wandering around and very good facilities.

Iíll be back, as will my spaniel - my wife, well letís see. Top rated site.

 What a lovely campsite with excellent facilities and buses that run from just outside the entrance to Swanage, Poole and beyond.

Itís in a beautiful setting and very peaceful with lovely walks nearby. We walked to Corfe castle through a footpath and across a field. It was an easy walk for us but probably not so good for those with reduced mobility.

The shop is well stocked and the toilets and showers are excellent as is the washing up room.

We are returning next year so shows that we liked it enough to return.

 Absolutely lovely campsite, full of animals, play area and ball area.

Toilets and showers very clean and a very well stocked farm shop and dairy dispenser ( my son said the milkshake was amazing )

Would definitely come again and recommend to friends and family.

Staff were very friendly 😃

 Back at Norden Farm again, this is a lovely place. I have been coming here since 2017 and always have a good time.

The facilities are constantly improving and are well maintained. Best showers I have found.

Look forward to returning next year.

 We had a group of three very generous, flat pitches on the Pond field. The clay underfoot was claggy with rain but held pegs nicely. The views are beautiful, though the castle is hidden behind the big ridge to the south.

There's plenty of interest on the site with farm animals, peafowl etc; the very extensive shop and sound catering options mean you can get the fire pit lit early and veg on site with no real need to leave.

Wareham has a usable Sainsbury's if you need other supplies.

Facilities are excellent - no push buttons anywhere - and kept very clean despite the worst efforts of fellow campers. EHU points are quite a distance from some of the pitches, so you will likely need an extension if using a standard 15m cable.

The management is efficient without getting in your way, and the sound curfew was well observed.

We would definitely use Norden Farm again.

Reviewer: Kyashi 1 review from this member

 Went to Norden Campsite as my first camping experience in about a decade as a solo camper mid-September (over the Queen's funeral). From the get-go the team at Norden made sure that I was good, that I was set up okay, that I was warm enough (as the nights had just turned cold), recommending me things to do in the local area, telling me the site's history, and honestly as a solo female camper made me feel so safe!

I had originally booked for a non-electric pitch in the top field but due to it being end of season they had shut that part early so I was in the campervan sections with barely a handful of other tent-campers. Initially I was a little upset as my pitch was right next to the bins but they were emptied so frequently that the concern I had was snuffed out pretty quickly.

The cost was probably a little steep for a non-electric pitch but I di technically end up on an electric pitch (although I didn't use the hook up) but I felt paying a 'premium' was worth it considering the facilities of the site and the site owner's attentiveness.

The site has free freezers and fridges and even lockers for charging laptops/phones/portable chargers - I really liked this feature of the site so I didn't waste money buying ice when I just rotated my ice packs in the freezers.

The showers and toilets were cleaned daily and were really well kempt, showers with warm water was fantastic!

The site is a working farm so it was quite busy from the early hours, which could bother others but was fine for me. The shop was really well stocked, food, camping gear, alcohol, ice, firewood and rental facilities for fires etc, even if it was a little on the expensive side, you pay for the convenience!

The site has a milk vending machine but I didn't get the chance to use but looked pretty cool, and food huts open for lunch/dinner if you're not interested in cooking yourself.

As I went during term time there wasn't many kids about (other than Sat-Mon due to the Queen's funeral giving us another bank holiday) but there are farm animals and a couple of playgrounds for kids and it seemed relatively safe, my only concern would be kids messing about too close to the working farm but that's the parent's concern!

Overall, couldn't have had a better experience for my 'first' camping adventure on my own! :D

 I think that the fact that I come back to Norden Farm every year is an indication of how much I love this site. Pitches are well-spaced and flat but you aren't in regimented lines like you are on many sites.

The on-site shop is really good with high quality produce without over inflated price tags. I have been coming to the area for over 50 years but I still manage to find new places to visit every year.

The on site food offering was good - everything is freshly cooked and you can get breakfast and evening meals - perfect when ou arrive or when you are packing up and don't want the hassle of cooking and washing up.

Corfe castle and the steam railway station in Norden are both a short walk from the site. I got the train to Swanage and back a couple of times for a relaxing trip.

Blue Pool is a short drive (longer walk) and is a lovely nature reserve for a walk. It also has the best tea room I know of and their cream teas have to be tried (their shortbread is extra special too)
