Steeple Leaze is a large, spacious campsite set across fields on a working beef farm, close to the villages of Corfe Castle and Church Knowle.

There’s a lovely, family-oriented atmosphere here and the children will love exploring the adjacent woodland with its swing. Simply pitch up and the owners will come to collect payment. They also offer firewood for a small fee, so that you can have a proper campfire for that traditional camping-under-the-stars experience.

You can walk to Jurassic Coast gem Kimmeridge Bay from the site, and access miles of great countryside walks, including the very special ‘ghost’ village, Tyneham. Try the New Inn in Church Knowle for some good pub grub, and Clavell’s Restaurant in Kimmeridge for a light lunch, cake or supper.

Facilities include both eco and flushing loos, plenty of hot showers and a hot food snack shack.
