Bournemouth best UK Coastal Resort! It’s official – the public have spoken and crowned Bournemouth as the Best UK Coastal Resort. The triumph was announced at the British Travel Awards held in London with Bournemouth beating off stiff competition from Looe, Cornwall and Tenby, Pembrokeshire who received silver and bronze awards.
The British Travel Awards are uniquely positioned to offer an insight into the companies and attractions that have received their customers’ vote of confidence. Unlike most travel awards – where a panel of judges or industry pundits have influence over the final results – British Travel Award winners have received their accolades by simply receiving more consumer votes than their competitors.
The British Travel Awards are a fantastic award to win as they reflect the opinion of the public and Bournemouth has been working its way up to the winning position for the past two years receiving silver place for the same award in 2012 and Bronze in 2011.
Mark Smith, Director of Bournemouth Tourism said: ‘It’s great to see Bournemouth receiving the recognition it deserves. Bournemouth Tourism work extremely hard to ensure the town remains on the public’s list as a favourite UK holiday destination. There’s always an abundance of free events, the parks and gardens are absolutely stunning – it doesn’t surprise me that the public voted for Bournemouth!’
Bournemouth continues to develop as an award-winning destination with the Bournemouth Air Festival being recognised across the globe as one of the world’s top 10 air shows. The town’s events continue to grow with the new Wheels Festival, which is set to be the UK’s biggest free wheels themed event taking place from the 29th – 31st May 2015.
We are delighted to be chosen by many visitors to the area who are looking for campsites in Bournemouth. The town centre is only a short drive from us here at South Lytchett Manor.
We booked for two nights in our Motorhome and ended up staying six nights. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Shower blocks were kept clean and water was lovely and hot. Bus stop directly outside site going to Poole and Swanage on the he number 40 bus route. Worth getting a return ticket to save money Mo, Oct 2021
We had a simply fabulous time at South Lytchett Manor last month. We were not sure about camping in October but the site is well insulated, the playground kept our kids well entertained and the facilities were super clean and comfortable. We loved having a shop onsite and there are water taps and electricity points in abundance.. we have stayed at a number of sites and couldn’t recommend this Beth, Nov 2020
Great campsite, really friendly and polite staff. Very clean facilities and felt ‘safe’ with all the hand sanitizer and clear signage, highly recommend - we’ll probably book one of the huts next time.... Richard , Oct 2020
