East Creech Farm is a hidden rural gem in Purbeck – a working farm that runs a campsite as well as offering camping pods and two holiday cottages.

It’s a real farm experience here at this 3 AA Pennant awarded campsite, with resident animals such as ponies, donkeys, pigs and cows on the land, which will delight both adults and children. There’s also plenty of resident ducks and geese in the village pond to welcome you on arrival, which is situated right next to the excellent seasonal tea room, The Cake House.


East Creech is a small hamlet located on a back road between Wareham and Corfe Castle, making it not only a pretty, countryside base for visiting nearby Swanage, but also an ideal location for walkers and cyclists to explore the Purbeck Ridgeway and other local landmarks such as Lulworth Cove, Tyneham and Kimmeridge. You’ll also be treated to vast views across the Isle of Purbeck toward Poole Harbour – there’s a lovely, non-strenuous walk from the campsite up to Creech Barrow, where you’ll have a 360 degree view of this special landscape – if you’re travelling via the A351 from Wareham, look out for this conical hill protruding proudly from the skyline which can be seen for miles around.

The nearest pubs, shops and restaurants are in Wareham or Corfe.

There are 80 grass pitches at East Creech Farm Campsite; some with electric hook-ups. Further facilities include a loo and (token-operated) shower block, wash up and laundry area, and chemical disposal point.

There are also two children’s play areas, woodland walks, and three fishing ponds.

🐾 East Creech Farm Campsite is dog-friendly. Dogs must be kept under close control at all times.
