Happy Campers ツ

This Campsite is the best one we’ve been to this year. Staff were nothing but friendly and helpful. Stunningly clean from the planting of flowers to the showers and toilets. Our two dogs were pampered here with the big closed in field to run round and dog showers if needed, apart from the shop everywhere else had a free reign (on their leads). The shop was filled with fresh top ups including baked cakes and fresh eggs from the chickens. There’s a nice cafe 2 mins from campsite that accompanies and a pub a walk away that’s dog friendly. We will be coming back to this one for sure

What an amazing campsite! We are a family of 4 and new to quite new to camping. The site was immaculate and staff were always on hand to help you with anything. We had a fantastic stay and will definitely return. I would highly recommend this campsite as it was just perfect. We didn’t want to come home. Thank you x

We stayed in the meadow field which is a lovely spot and were thankful for the shade of the great oak tree on the hottest weekend of the year. All pitches are well maintained, staff were great and literally escorted us to our pitch and showed us where everything was. The facilities were always spotless and the showers were roomy enough take a little one in, the family bathroom was fantastic and the fresh pastries just topped it all off. Well done South Lychett Manor- no doubt we’ll be back.
