Happy Campers ツ

Swimming pools, Club houses, Cheesy entertainment. This site has none of that….and thank goodness!!! Who needs it when there is so much to do in the surrounding area and the place is lovely anyway. The site should be a base, not an all out entertainment provider.

What South Lytchett Manor (SLM from now on) have done is focused on the important things a campsite should have. And everything they do, they do it right.

The toilets were by far the cleanest, nicest campsite toilets and showers I’ve ever seen. I especially liked the family toilet/shower rooms which were great for our young family (2Yo, 4Yo and 2 adults). They always smelled lovely (and for a bloke to say men’s toilets smell nice is no mean feat!!)

The play area for kids is a nice size and there are chickens for them to feed. There’s also a small games room which is just fine. There’s a local woods too for walking the dogs through.

Everything was always kept in lovely condition, nothing overgrown.

And finally, the staff. They were ALWAYS happy to help and pleasant. On arrival we had 4 poles snap when the side of our tent was hit by a gust. After buying replacement poles (go outdoors up the road) SLM loaned me with all the tools I needed to repair them. If that wasn’t enough, I had a faulty gas regulator on my gas bottle. A really helpful member of staff lent me leak detection fluid to make sure it was fixed properly.

The shop is always stocked well and a fair enough price too – fresh eggs and bread in the mornings!

Our visit was kind of accidental as we wanted to surprise a couple of friends who were staying on the site. The staff were excellent and kept our visit secret.
Not being caravan owners, we found that the site has four Romany Caravans and booked one of these. They are beautifully painted, can sleep up to 4 people and facilities are close by. It was immaculate, very comfortable and we think it actually has more living space than an average caravan.The kitchen area can be closed off from the rest. Loved it.
We will never buy a caravan or motorhome, but this site is superb and we can understand why it has won many awards. All we can say is that if anyone wants to use this site we certainly recommend it. We would say though, bear in mind if you want to stay in the Romany Caravan, you will need to take everything with you, so check the website.
