Acton Field Camping Site is a beautiful holiday park found close to the town of Swanage on the Dorset coast. Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty close to miles of Heritage Coast, Acton Field is a wonderful place to head for a relaxing family break.

The park promotes a simple camping ethos of allowing guests to choose their own pitch on arrival from the open fields at this site. Guests are also welcome to just turn up at Acton Field and stay for one night or several, making the park a popular location for those touring the south coast or heading on from there to another destination.

Caravans, tents and motorhomes are welcome to pitch here. Although there is no shop or notable facilities on the site, a mobile grocery van does regularly visit Acton Field Camping Site providing guests with fresh bread, vegetables and a range of other supplies and camping accessories. The nearest pub is a short half mile walk away in the local village, Langton Matravers, and serves locally sourced produce. Other great pubs and restaurants can be found in the area, including the Square and Compass, which is six miles away.

There are lots of things to do in Dorset on your camping and caravan holidays.
