Double Gold At Dorset Tourism Awards 2018


We are ecstatic to announce that we scooped two Gold Awards at the Dorset Tourism Awards 2018. We were recognised as the best Touring Caravanning and Camping Park of the Year and also the best Dog Friendly Business of the Year!

These latest two golds are the latest in a long list of awards which have been bestowed to South Lytchett Manor in recent years. It comes off the back of being recognised as the overall best British site by Top 100 for the last two years and being the AA Campsite of the Year in 2016.

Park owner Jo Bridgen said of the award “We are so very proud to have been recognised as the best camping park in Dorset. It is a reflection of the continual investment we are making to the park and also the hard work of all our staff who always deliver excellent  customer service.”

Dog friendly camping heaven!

Recently we have installed a number of additional dog friendly facilities which we think would have impressed the judges. As well as having  a dedicated 2.5-acre dog exercise field, we now have a dog washing area. This enables owners to wash off muddy paws after enjoying a walk in the Dorset countryside. This helps to keep caravans and motorhomes mud free zones!

Matt Bridgen said “being able to come away on holiday with your dog is a priority for many people, which is why we are constantly looking to improve the facilities with have for dogs on the park. Being recognised as the best dog friendly campsite in Dorset is a fantastic achievement. We love having dogs here and so can’t wait to welcome even more guests and their four legged friends to South Lytchett.”

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.quote marks Margaret, Apr 2021

quote marksWe 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 thisquote marks Beth, Nov 2020

quote marksGreat 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....quote marks Richard , Oct 2020
