Traditional Family Camping at Acton Field
Campsite on the Jurassic Coast in Dorset

Welcome to Acton Field Campsite, on the Isle of Purbeck with breathtaking coastal views over Swanage Bay.

A camping site in rural surroundings with wonderful views of Swanage Bay, the Purbeck Hills and the Isle of Wight. Set in three hectares of gently sloping pasture there is always a flat pitch to be found please note we do not allocate pitches we leave campers to choose their own pitch but do not pitch too close to others.

The site is in an Area of Outstanding Beauty, a one mile walk through grass and wild flowers to the coastal path on this picturesque part of the Jurassic Coastline with Dancing Ledge and Chapmans Pool nearby. Acton Field is within walking distance to The Square and Compass Pub and the local village pub The Kings Arms Pub.

Mobile grocery van delivers during school holidays.

Vehicles are parked right next to your tents, so no heavy carrying of camping equipment is required. All are welcome; it's a very family friendly and dog friendly campsite.

Acton Field Campsite is ideal for camping, walking and cycling with many footpaths and bridle paths close by.

The beaches of Swanage and Studland are sandy and safe and are within easy reach. A bus stop is 5 minutes walk from the campsite and a regular bus service can transport you to Swanage, Wareham, Poole, Bournemouth, Weymouth and beyond. Wareham train station is on the main line to London, Waterloo.

Langton Matravers is a small Dorset village in the Purbecks, with stone cottages and some modern dwellings, mostly built with Purbeck stone. Some stone quarries are still operational and provide stone for local use and further afield.
St Georges Church is in the centre of the village and just below is the one remaining pub, The Kings Arms. This is a small public house offering affordable good food and excellent beers.

The campsite offers basic clean facilities - toilets, showers, washing-up sinks, two freezers for ice packs and there are also 1 chemical disposal point. There is an electric point in the ladies and a shaver socket in the gents and constant hot water. For this coming season there will only be Reserved Pitches.
