Charming Christchurch is a wonderful place to visit and only around 40 minutes away from South Lychett Manor Caravan and Camping Park.
Take a journey of around 40 minutes along the Dorset coast to the east of our park and you will arrive in the pleasant town of Christchurch. It has a much slower pace than its bustling neighbour of Bournemouth however the activities and events on offer are no less enticing.
In the historic town itself there plenty of independent shops located around the high street and Saxon Square area. When its time to refuel there are numerous restaurants, cafes and take aways to choose from. There is also an annual Christchurch Food Festival which takes place each May.
If you want to find a more rural setting then head to the nearby villages of Highcliffe with its grade one listed Castle or picturesque Mudeford renowned for colourful beach huts and traditional quay; a popular spot for crab fishing and boat trips. Take a short ferry trip from Mudeford and wander around the stunning Hengistbury Head coastal nature reserve. Or simply go walking along the golden beaches, there’s so much to see and do.
Follow signs to Poole and then signs to Bournemouth

We booked for two nights in our Motorhome and ended up staying six nights. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Shower blocks were kept clean and water was lovely and hot. Bus stop directly outside site going to Poole and Swanage on the he number 40 bus route. Worth getting a return ticket to save money Mo, Oct 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
