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.

Absolutely superb! Very speedy, efficient check in. Office couldn't do enough for you. Customer service top class. Our family party stayed in 3 dog friendly shepherds huts. Beautiful decor. Nice little self contained area for the 5 shepherd huts. Clean and modern toilet and shower facilities within less than 2 minutes. Large socially distanced communal washing up area. Large 2 acre area for exercising the dogs within 3 mins walk of shepherds huts. Couldn't fault this stay. Margaret, Apr 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
