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

We have been going to Lytchett Manor Campsite for many years, I’m quite a fussy person myself and Lytchett Manor ticks all the boxes in many ways. From when you arrive you are greeted with a smile, have a friendly chat then every person is shown to their pitch. We always go for the superior pitch which offers you your own electric water TV point if required and your own private plot, which is nice and big and has a picnic table. Toilets are always nice and clean, showers are lovely and hot all kept immaculate. Dish washing facilities perfect. Shop and reception always well stocked reasonable priced, fresh eggs and local produce available daily. Most important all staff are very friendly and will go out of there way to help you. 10 out of 10. See you next year.

The staff where very helpful, the facilities exceptional. It is a smart clean and very quiet site. The bus stop is outside the site and takes one into Poole or Dorchester. The shop by the main gate sells fresh eggs from their own chickens, and any necessary provisions. There is gravel hard stand for Motor Homes and Caravans and a handy water tap between two. We had a very happy stay and will return in September.

Just enjoyed 5 nights at this well appointed camp site, couldn’t fault a thing. Very friendly and helpful staff, good sized pitches, electric hook up, nice washroom facilities, local bus stop outside the gate, 2 pubs nearby. Excellent location for Poole, Bournemouth and South Coast. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
