Coastal Holidays in Dorset

South Lytchett Manor is ideally placed for a coastal holiday in Dorset. Our award-winning caravan, camping and glamping site is situated in an idyllic location, surrounded by picturesque countryside and just a short distance from the coast.

Our superb location on the outskirts of Poole offers holiday park guests the best of both worlds. The Holes Bay section of Poole Harbour can be accessed via a scenic walk from the park. Bournemouth’s golden sandy beaches and beauty spots along the Jurassic Coast are just a short bus or car journey away.

Campsite by the sea

You’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to spend a beach day during your camping or caravan break at South Lytchett. There is something for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re looking to spend the day sun bathing or trying various watersports.

Families should head to one of Bournemouth’s beaches, where you’ll find nearby parking, lifeguarded beaches and excellent facilities including paddleboard hire, toilets, showers and places to grab something to eat and drink. Intrepid visitors can hike along the South West Coast path and venture to lesser-known coves situated off the beaten track.

If you’re visiting with your-four legged friend there are an excellent selection of dog friendly beaches in Dorset.

Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site

Many visitors choose to holiday in Dorset to spend time exploring the Jurassic Coastline. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some of the most iconic beaches in the UK and boasts an impressive selection of tourist hot spots and hidden gems.

We recommend taking some time to visit Kimmeridge, Worbarrow Bay, Studland and of course Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove during your coastal staycation. All of these locations offer breath taking views along the rugged coastline and out to sea.

Take a look at our handy ‘things to do’ planner to find out more about all the beaches that are local to South Lytchett.

If you’re looking for something a bit different, why not book one of our quirky glamping options? Glamping is a unique experience, and one of the best ways to holiday in Dorset! Our traditional Romany caravans are a popular choice with families. Our well-equipped shepherds’ huts, Star-gazing Yurts and camping pods are also the ideal base for a coastal getaway in Dorset.
