    A lovely 2 nights away staying in a bell tent. Loved every minute of it! Didn’t venture to the bar as we wanted to embrace the outdoor living! But toilets and showers cleaned regularly! Plus a bonus was having power points in our tent. Massive...

    The glamping tent was all set up and ready to go. Nice & spacious grounds around the glamping tent, great for kids & dogs. Logs delivered to our tent every evening for the fire pit. Bar with pool table too for some fun. All kid & dog friendly.

    The bells were spacious and beds were comfortable. Toilets and showers were clean. They give complimentary wood with the firepit.

At Herston we are a family orientated site, safe for Children and our friendly staff will help you with whatever you need. 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 a the Swanage steam train to historical Corfe Castle 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, watersports or even sandcastle building…… all within three miles of our Camping & Caravanning site. Further afield are Monkey World, the Tank Museum, Weymouth - home to the 2012 Olympic Sailing Academy, Poole Harbour and the bright lights of Bournemouth. You can abandon the car for the entire holiday if you wish since the park is a mere mile and a half from the bustling Seaside town centre of Swanage where many interesting events are held including the Folk Festival and the Jazz Festival. It is even less than that to the sandy blue flag family beaches.
