Norden Farm Campsite

eb8e57fe-c4bd-4456-9a0b-7f7ea5a5db5f

Part campsite, part petting zoo, Norden Farm is a family-friendly destination with farm animals including cows, sheep, pigs, llamas, and goats.

It is in a beautiful rural location surrounded by trees and fields and has a great sense of space about it. Whilst it is a peaceful site, children will not be disappointed as the array of farm animals are a great attraction. There’s a pond for fishing too.

The three camping and touring fields are on grass with electric hook-ups available. The campsite is dog friendly with a wet room and warm shower provided for pets who might be a little muddy after exploring all the surrounding open countryside.

You can walk from the campsite to Corfe Castle which is three quarters of a mile away and contains the famous Castle ruins up on the hill in the town.

The National Trust property is one of those locations that you'll visit once and then visit again and again but finding somewhere to park can be problematic.

Luckily for you, Norden Farm is just a little walk away so you can leave the car at the site and walk just under a mile to experience Corfe's delightful pubs, shops and cafés.

Talking of which, you can't go to Dorset without experiencing the traditional apple cake which can be sampled at Love Cake Too – a cute little café tucked away in West Street.

Once you've had cake for lunch, wander back to the site and consider your dinner options.

The farm has a wonderful farm shop and this is a major draw, attracting visitors from across the area who value food provenance and seek the finest local produce like local meat (goat, anyone?) and Purbeck ice cream.

For families, Studland beach is sandy with shallow waters and for an extra animal overdose, nearby Weymouth Sea Life Park has aquatic ones aplenty.
