There’s also a TV and DVD player, refrigerator, coffee machine, toaster, two ring electric hob, hob kettle, LED lighting and sockets with USB points.

A Dorset and British Affair

South Lytchett Manor loves to support local businesses, which is why the materials were sourced as close to Dorset as possible. The traditional cast iron wheels were hand poured by Bridport Foundry and the windows were fitted by a Dorsetonian. Timber was sourced from businesses in Poole and all electrical items were supplied by YESS Electricals in Poole. Frame materials were shipped from Wrexham and the 100% sheep wool lining is from Birmingham. They were then handcrafted onsite by us and finished off with a lick of the spectacular local Farrow and Ball paint!

We will be delighted to welcome you to Dorset and South Lytchett Manor and personally introduce you to your Shepherd Hut stay; after all, it was made by our own hands! As our guests, you will have complete access to our award winning five star-rated amenities and facilities onsite, including our new modern, heated family bathrooms. The eco-friendly children’s adventure playground, football and badminton nets as well as an indoor games room mean that new friends are easy to find whilst you stay with us here at South Lytchett Manor.

In high and shoulder season, our onsite bakery springs into action for freshly baked pastries and bread. It’s joined by our new quirky Coffee Pod which produces barista level coffee, tea, hot chocolate, iced lattes and some limited edition breakfast options during the summer holidays.

These bespoke Shepherd Huts are a picture-perfect compliment to Dorset’s historical roots. They seamlessly blend modern amenities with close access to Bournemouth and Poole, so you can enjoy a peaceful holiday in the natural beauty of the Dorset Countryside.

Happy Campers ツ

I was treated to a weekend away last weekend in one the delightful romany caravans and what a delight it was. From the moment we were treated to a friendly welcome we wanted for nothing and loved all the thoughtful touches and attention to details. Thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Endurablue, September 2018

We spent a wonderfully relaxing weekend here over Easter, this tie in one of the Romany caravans, ours was called Maggie and what a brilliant experience!!
The caravan was absolutely superb and supremely comfortable and cosy over what was a wet weekend!! The caravan has a double bed and two singles all of which were really comfortable and includes a small hob and a fridge. There is something really therapeutic about hearing the rain on the outside knowing that you are snug and dry inside.
The toilets and showers are directly opposite the caravans and these were again supremely clean even in such adverse conditions, Dave and the team should be very proud of these caravans and the site as a whole.
If you want a totally relaxing break away from it all whether glamping camping or in your motorhome or caravan then this is the place to come!!
