We couldn’t help but smile. When the BBC chose to interview holidaymakers on the theme getting away from it all, they came to South Lytchett Manor and asked our guests about the benefits of digital detoxing.
It seems we now spend an average 25 hours a week on line, with more than half of us saying we’re addicted to our digital devices. As a direct result, people are increasingly looking for holidays where they can take a break from going online and parents are insisting their kids take an online break, with nearly two thirds having been ‘digitally grounded’.
We smiled because here at South Lytchett Manor we have long boasted of beautiful scenery, a quiet environment and all the blessings of an off-line holiday. But even given all these beautiful and natural attractions, what our guests asked us about most was better access to free Wi-Fi!
Always keen to please, we responded by investing in the best free Wi-Fi we could come up with – now available right across the site. And it was working perfectly when the BBC visited to talk to our guests for their early morning, one o clock and six o clock news programmes which were broadcast on August 4th.
Perhaps the moral of the story is that choice is all-important. So if you stay with us and you want to check your Facebook page or send some crafty emails, we’re more than happy for you to hook up. If on the other hand, you prefer a ‘digital detox’ and a real chance to get away from it all, look no further. South Lytchett Manor campsite in Dorset is at your offline disposal.
