Located just north of Swanage, Ulwell, this AA four-pennant campsite is just a mile from the sea and offers 77 pitches (all having electric hook-ups and some also having a water point and drainage). The pitches for motorhomes, caravans and tents are set in a separate area to the holiday homes. Facilities include two toilet blocks with free showers, two laundrettes and a leisure complex with a heated indoor swimming pool with a separate toddlers pool, as well as The Village Inn bar and restaurant, and a shop. There’s also a large recreation field and play equipment.

This attractive and well-kept 83-pitch campsite is nestled amongst the Purbeck Hills - an ideal base for walking and exploring in this area and there are some lovely country walks from the site. Situated between beautiful countryside and a dramatic coastline (just a mile from the sea), this campsite is perfect for an active walking holiday or a relaxing break by the sea.

77 of the 83 pitches have electric hook-up, eight have a water point and drainage, and some hardstandings are available for 'vans. The touring pitches are in a seperate area to the site's holiday homes.

The facilities at this campsite are fantastic and the campsite is very self-contained - with a well-stocked shop (closed November to March), restaurant (lunch, snacks and evening menus) and bar (with outdoor patio) on-site, you can relax in the knowledge that you won't have to travel far to dine.

The modern toilet blocks offer showers and are conveniently placed for all tourers and are well-maintained and spotlessly-clean. Here you'll also find two launderettes.

Kids will love making a splash in the indoor heated swimming pool or separate toddler's pool, while parents can sit in comfort with a book in the viewing area. There is also a spacious outdoor play area where kids can run around and let off some steam.

Wi-Fi is available on the campsite - perfect for surfing the web for a tourist attraction, or even just for checking your emails.
