Christchurch sunset


Places to visit

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.

Christchurch attractions include:

Highcliffe Castle
Jetty restaurant
Mudeford Ferry trip
Adventure Wonderland
Hengistbury Head Visitor Centre.


Follow signs to Poole and then signs to Bournemouth

What our guests think

quote marksAbsolutely 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.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
