The weather looked set fair for the weekend so we decided on a trip to Purbeck. Just for the adventure we opted to go via Bournemouth and the Sandbanks chain ferry. Once across the ferry we stopped for lunch and started thinking about where to camp for a few nights.
We had been to Corfe quite a few years before so we decided to try the C&CC site there and what a gem it is. Hidden away up a lane on the hillside amongst the woods. It has loads of sheltered pitches and really nice facilities. The lane means that you would struggle to get a big motorhome or caravan up there. From the site there is a green lane walk down to the castle and the village. Corfe itself is quaint and touristic and there is at the end of the Swanage Railway so you can ride a steam train into Swanage, which of course we did.
It was the first opportunity we had really had to do a nice dinner on the Cob so we decided to go culinary. We started dinner with asparagus on the griddle with a nice chilled white wine. We followed this up with a a lamb kebab salad and finally Gui chocolate cheesecake pots and nice bottle of red. A pleased what to will away an evening.
Getting through Wareham on the way home on Sunday was a bit of a mission. It seemed that everyone was heading for the coast for the day. On the way home we pulled in to Goodwood Circuit which always has a nice atmosphere when it not being used and there is plenty of space to pull up for a coffee or a picnic in the car park which is always spotless.
