Your stay at Downshay

Downshay Farm is ideally located for exploring Purbeck. The seaside town of Swanage is just 4 miles away, and Corfe Castle and Swanage are both accessible by steam train from the nearby Harman’s Cross station, only a short walk away. The World Heritage Coastal Path is also close by, or you can happily sit in front of your caravan and admire the views.

At Whitsun and from mid-July we also offer camping in the adjacent field plus additional toilet blocks, find out more about camping at Downshay.
