The first 10 years: Look how far we’ve come!

From small beginnings 10 years ago, to AA Campsite of the Year 2016. What a difference a decade can make!

When Dave and Jo Bridgen took over South Lytchett Manor in 2006, their vision was clear; the best campsite they could possibly build. Now, ten years on, they’ve spent thousands of hours of hard work building brand new facilities, setting up attractions, equipping pitches and mowing what feels like millions of square feet of lawn (!) in their bid to improve every possible aspect of the site.

But has it all been worthwhile? If their guest opinions are anything to go by, the answer is a resounding ‘Yes’. Check out the new video above and hear first-hand from campers and caravanners just how much they love the site that has grown up and flourished in the heart of the beautiful Dorset countryside.

From dog friendly walks and beautifully maintained grounds, to top quality facilities, great local pub, free Wi-Fi across the park and the breath-taking new Romany Caravans, the feedback is positive and full of praise… ‘Absolutely faultless, just superb, fantastic staff, immaculate, beautiful gardens, lovely family-run site, play area for children, very dog friendly, fun, safe, happy family camping holiday …’

A brand new video showcases the many advantages of booking a holiday at South Lytchett Manor which is in Lytchett Minster, a lovely Dorset village close to Poole, Bournemouth and the striking Jurassic coast. Visitors who return year on year are seen emphasising how peaceful and well-kept they find it – how they would come back tomorrow if they could!

There’s also another new video that concentrates on the romantic idea of spending a holiday in a charming and cosy Romany Caravan – bespoke, hand-built caravans that sleep four and are perfect for first time campers or anyone who wants to try something different and fun.

With every year that passes, South Lytchett Manor wins more hearts among campers looking for the ideal spot to stay. Jo and Dave Bridgen, their son Matt and the rest of the staff believe the next 10 years hold even more promise and look forward to welcoming you to this great site. To find out more for yourself, take a look at the video.

Happy Campers ツ

What a lovely campsite! Plenty of space between pitches so you never feel crowded even though it was very busy. Shop provides most essentials and fresh bread and eggs daily. The morning coffee bar provides freshly brewed coffee and the smell of bacon! There was even a visit from the local brewery with a beer van with both bottled and beer on tap! Very dog friendly with great exercise areas including an enclosed meadow for off leash exercise. They even have hand sanitiser and extra poo bags should you require them! Toilet and shower facilities were very clean and well equipped. Bus stop outside site for trips to either Poole or Swanage seem to run every hour. 11 minute walk to local pub St Peter’s Finger.

Stayed at your site in July for the second time and we was not disappointed, the site was immaculately kept and the toilets spotless. All the staff we met was friendly and helpful. The bus stop is right outside the gates, one way into Poole and Bournemouth and the other side into Swanage via Corfe Castle. Would I stop there again…. most definitely!!! All in all a fantastic site.

First night here and I can already say that this site is brilliant, beautiful scenery, great staff, level pitches and great, clean facilities. Great play area for kids of all ages and they bake fresh bread daily. I can’t stress enough how nice it is. Great fields for dog owners, top drawer. Not too far from Poole either , which has great beaches Will definitely be back
