Your Holiday Begins!
 Whether you're camping, bringing a caravan, passing through in your motor-home or staying in one of our luxury bell tents why not make Herston your choice for your next vacation?

About Us:


Please note that our clubhouse is currently closed

At Herston we are a family orientated site, with children and dogs very welcome. Our friendly team are on hand to help you with whatever you need, so don't be shy - come and have chat! 

There is so much to discover and experience around picturesque Purbeck; gateway to the Jurassic Coast, England’s first World Heritage Site. Take a trip on the famous Swanage 
steam train to historical Corfe Castle as we are only a 5 minute walk to Herston Halt station. Enjoy walks along the spectacular coastline and National Trust countryside and why not try out some bird watching, fishing, water sports or even sandcastle building.

 Further afield are Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Weymouth, Poole Harbour and the bright lights of Bournemouth. You can abandon the car for the entire holiday if you wish since the park is just over a mile from the bustling Seaside town centre of Swanage where many interesting events are held including the Swanage Carnival, Blues Festival, Folk Festival and Jazz Festival. It is even less distance to the sandy blue flag family beaches.

 On-site there are great facilities for you to enjoy during your stay. If you want to unwind with just a coffee or sit back and relax in front of the log burning fire and sip your tipple of choice, knowing that your evening meal is being prepared by our experienced chefs then our clubhouse is the place for you. There is a large selection of lager and real ales for you to enjoy in addition to well known spirits and wines for the discerning palette. 

Don’t forget the kids as we have an extensive children’s menu and a large selection of non-alcoholic drinks available too. Immediately behind the bar is our children’s play park, including swings & slides, so you can watch your kids playing in comfort from our conservatory. 

We also have some fantastic events running throughout the year! Hosted in our clubhouse show bar, we host live music, karaoke and dances during peak season. Check out our "What's On" page for up and coming events and entertainment at Herston.

During the summer months we open our takeaway. Situated in the camping fields it offers a wide range of food, for breakfast and evening meals. The takeaway offers a range of hot food - from fish and chips to burgers to even a full English! We also serve cold drinks, slush puppies and ice creams too.

If you do forget to bring anything then there is an on-site shop that carries most of the essentials that you may need, as well as a coin fed launderette to do any washing or drying.

Dogs are welcome on site - we love our furry friends and do not charge extra for them to stay with us. However we do require that they are kept on a lead at all times while on the park and as a responsible dog owner you clean up any mess they may create.
