We are beyond delighted to receive this award. It is recognition of the hard work, dedication and continuous strive to improve by the whole team here at South Lytchett Manor over the past 15 years. We have always worked hard to provide the best experience for our guests and to provide genuine and meaningful holidays for all. Winning the Overall Campsite of the Year for 2021 means we are continuing to move in the right direction and to have that recognition has brought a smile to everyone’s face.
5 Star Campsite Facilities
South Lytchett Manor used the time that they were unable to be open in the past two years constructively and focused on the years to come by expanding and improving amenities and facilities on the park. The two biggest improvements included six new Glamping Pods and a New Café.
The new Glamping additions to the Park, handcrafted by staff onsite, have been fully booked since re-opening and include underfloor heating and eco friendly materials.
Similarly, the new cafe onsite serving hot drinks such as freshly ground barista coffee, tea, hot chocolate and lots of local Dorset goodies including fresh bakery products, cream teas and Jessica’s Cakes has been equally successful. This was created after knocking through the shop to create a much more open environment and welcoming environment.
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
