Corfe castle is best visited out of season as it is very much on the tourist trail, the path up to and through the castle is steep in places but requires no special footwear. Corfe castle is owned by the National Trust and charges a small fee - members go free.

This is a great location, there is a rocky coastline below the castle, with some steep steps to get to the lower area,  with a scramble over some very slippery rocks it can be photographed at a lower level. There is a cave below the castle in the rocks.

There is a charge to get in to the castle. 

I have only ever shot from the outside though. There are plenty of options on where to shoot from, just needs a bit of walking around to find them.

This is a fantastic photography location, which offers an opportunity to photograph architectural aspects as well as great panoramic and landscape shots. Chatelherault was built in 1732 as the hunting lodge and summer house for the Duke of Hamiliton.

The photo taken here was after days of heavy rain when the lake was filling up from the adjacent tidal pond with running water under the footbridge. In this location on a clear day the sun will rise up to the side of the castle making a possible great shot.

Plenty of vantage points around the area, but best to park up in the castle car park, or the town of Dornie and walk around a bit. Walking up the hill can often give a different shot. There is also a great vantage point across the bridge on the other side of Dornie.
