Named as Best in England in the prestigious AA Caravan and Camping Awards 2016, it has also been selected as the best campsite in UK overall winner - The AA Campsite of the Year 2016, placing it at the top of a 900 strong list of parks including those in Wales and Scotland.

South Lytchett Manor is the best campsite in UK and The AA Campsite of the Year 2016!

The AA ranks parks according to an inspection which takes into account a wide range of factors such as customer care, quality and cleanliness of facilities standard of public areas, range of amenities, size and layout of pitches and quality of grounds and landscaping.

The South Lytchett Manor inspection report earned a very impressive five pennants and a 96% approval rating. It also made particular mention of some of the site’s recent improvements including:

• Additional fully serviced pitches in Randall’s making 85 fully serviced pitches in total.
• New bike hire facility with new top quality bikes for all ages.

A spokesperson for the AA said, “South Lytchett continues to get better each year and has now become one of that very select group of top parks in the country, which has achieved this very high quality percentage. It is very much a family-run park and David, Joanne, and Matthew Bridgen, and their dedicated team, have developed the park to its current superb standard and all facilities are well thought out and are modern and spotlessly clean.

“Pitches are spacious and varied and many are fully serviced. Their ethos is very much ‘customer is king’ and everyone connected with the park goes out of their way to ensure their guests are looked after from arrival to departure, nothing is too much trouble. This very high level of customer care really sets South Lytchett Manor apart and many of their guests return time after time because of it. “

Joanne Bridgen commented, “We’re absolutely delighted to be announced as the best campsite in UK. Many thanks to the AA for this accolade and as always, heartfelt thanks to our guests, who have supported us through the last few years and helped us turn South Lytchett Manor into such a success.”

Happy Campers ツ

We have just had an excellent two night stay on this site this last weekend despite somewhat inclement weather. There were five couples in our party, four motorhomes and one caravan, on what we call a mystery weekend whereby one couple organise a campsite to visit and activities for the weekend… only advising the others of the location on the day of travel.
Our visit to South Lytchett Manor was a great success with an excellent Friday evening meal at the nearby St Peters Finger pub and equally good breakfast on Sunday morning at Dylan’s Café adjacent to the campsite. Saturday was spent mooching around Poole with us getting there and back by bus which stopped right outside the site.
We all found the site facilities to be of a very high standard from the very well laid out hard standings to the immaculate toilet block and extremely well kept grounds despite the time of year.
A big thank you goes to reception staff for their recommendations and for being very friendly, helpful and accommodating so as to ensured we had great ‘mystery weekend’.
Will definitely be on our list for a return visit.

We have just returned from our first visit to South Lytchett Manor, and I have to say if all camps were as nice as this one it would make life much easier. We found the staff very helpful and friendly ready to give advice on the local area and bus times, the camp was very clean and tidy which is no mean feat at this time of year with the trees dropping leafs as fast as their cleared.
The toilet block was really clean and modern looking and kept nice and warm. We arrived late on the Friday night and as arranged our paperwork was waiting by the reception door with map of the site showing the pitch we had been allocated.
We had breakfast in the cafe near the site and can’t find anything negative to say about our stay at South Lytchett Manor, we will certainly be using this site again. Well done to everyone on site!
