The Telegraph Travel
The high number of repeat visitors is testament to the charm of this site, which has 130 pitches, close to the sandy delights of the beaches at Studland Bay, a short drive away and the proximity of excellent cycle paths means it is worth bringing children's bikes. Corfe Castle and Swanage are just six miles away. Facilities include showers, washing machines, baby-changing facilities and a small shop stocking camping and cooking equipment.
Burnbake - Corfe Castle, Dorset
Burnbake is devoted to good, old-fashioned fun. The big draw is the woods that surround the site, where children often disappear for hours on end, discovering the joys of swinging on ropes and building dens.
Top-of-primary kids in particular have a ball here, living a Swallows and Amazons existence while you chill out round your campfire (off-the- ground fires only), beer in hand.
There's an excellent shop on site and a yurt pizza outlet in high season all of you will relish. The beautiful three-mile-long beach at Studland Bay is close at hand, and Swanage has lots of old-fashioned seaside activities including putting, tennis and bowls, and a couple of great fish-and-chip shops.
Burnbake Camping Site, Dorset
The vibe: Full-on family escapades.
Highlights: This is the camp for those with children who enjoy fresh-air and mud. It sits snugly in a forest, beside a stream. Bring your bikes for family jaunts on the many cycle paths; likewise, buckets and spades for the nearby Blue Flag beaches in Swanage and Studland. The South-West coast path is close, as is beautiful Corfe Castle.
