Happy Campers ツ

I’ve just had the best week here, fantastic staff, facilities and thoughtful extras ( flowers and music in the shower block and help yourself herb garden). It’s a beautifully clean well laid out gem of a site in a beautiful part of the country.
The bus service runs from the door with lots of wonderful places to visit without worrying about taking the motor home.
It thoroughly deserves all the awards it’s won – 5 star staff and facilities.

We have just returned from South Lytchett Manor after a fantastic weeks stay there. Everything about the campsite is perfect.

We were on pitch 30 which was lovely and quiet for us, as we have an autistic son and we need to be in a quite area, he had lots of space to move around in without being closed in.

A friendly, relaxed atmosphere in beautiful surroundings. The site shop is well stocked with beautiful home made cakes, pastries and bread. Their fresh croissants are superb! The Badger beer van there on the weekends was a treat as well. Two lovely pubs just down the road within walking distance, the village is lovely too.

We had a trip into Poole on Tuesday night to see the motorbikes which is free to attend and literally there were hundreds of bike enthusiasts there. Very enjoyable. Lots of things to do locally but we preferred to stay on the site.

A great playground for children and lots of open space for children to run around in and bicycle rental on site also!

I cannot speak highly enough of this campsite. We’ve all agreed it is the best site we’ve stayed on. We’re already planning our dates to return for next year. We loved it!!!

This campsite is amazing, the staff are really helpful and friendly, my husband is disabled and they will always find a pitch near the toilets if they can. They have a lovely little place to get freshly cooked bacon rolls, panini’s, pastries etc (at certain times of the year)in the morning and a well stocked little shop. We have stayed here quite a few times and will not stay anywhere else when we visit Poole. Highly recommend.
