Why we've chosen Tom's Field

Close to the sea, this well-positioned campsite has many attributes, including ease of access by public transport. The Purbeck Breezer bus (no 40) between Swanage and Poole stops at Langton Matravers, with Tom’s Field just to the south. Once installed you can walk out along the Jurassic Coast: Swanage and Studland Bay are close by. Or visit the Steam Railway, Putlake Adventure Farm and Corfe Castle. Facilities include a shop and a breakfast café, while the village offers two pubs. There’s a dynamic approach to the environment, with summer workshops from butterfly conservation to beekeeping and a policy that ranges from recycling everything possible to limiting the use of artificial light – so take a torch.
