I was really looking forward to staying at this site, having read the Shorefields brochures and scrutinised their website. I was expecting an upmarket site but after a very friendly welcome, found the site to be a bit tatty and forlorn. Our pitch was right in a corner under tall trees and felt dark and depressing. The grass area alongside was unkempt and full of weeds and didn't feel cared for at all.

The facilities block was fine, if a little dated, but very warm with plenty of hot water and free hairdryers etc.

We cycled down to Keyhaven which was quite attractive and rode round to Milford on Sea, which seemed to offer a good variety of things (except bananas!) and we were told the fish and chip shop had closed down.

On the plus side we walked up to Everton village centre and had a meal in the Crown Inn. It was a Sunday evening and we thought that like most pubs they wouldn't be serving meals. However, what we had was absolutely wonderful tasty home cooked food and homemade desserts. The barlady/waitress was really friendly and the chef also came out for a nice chat too. Top class!

We also visited Hurst Castle by walking most of the way along the spit. It didn't look too welcoming but it was fascinating. For someone not remotely interested in history or militaria, I thought it was brilliant. A nice bacon baguette in the café too and we took the opportunity of rounding off the day with a nice ferry trip back to Keyhaven.

This campsite has very good reviews and I don't want to spoil that, but it just wasn't my type of site being very much like a supermarket car park with caravans (mainly) parked in rows next to each other with just enough space in between to squeeze in an awning and possibly a car. The view from anywhere on the park was basically rows of caravans. Perhaps it didn't help that there was a caravan club meet in progress while I was there but due to how the pitches are positioned it would be pretty much the same at any busy time.

A previous reviewer mentioned views of the Isle of Wight and the Needles through the trees but at this time of year the trees were fully leaved and the field beyond contained tall corn so, in effect, there was no view. Except caravans!

The pitch I was initially allocated was slightly more sloping than the rest of the park, right underneath large trees, and quite damp under foot despite there having been little rain recently. However, on the plus side the warden on duty was extremely kind and helpful (and tolerant) and gave me a map of the site with a choice of available pitches. These were mostly along the edges of the park with one stuck right in the middle of the caravans next to the toilet block which would have meant a procession of campers passing across the pitch to get to the loos. There was just one pitch available that I felt was reasonable. Fairly flat and not quite right under the trees. Fortunate because I was just about ready to go home by that stage.

On the plus side, as mentioned, all the wardens were very nice and happy to have a chat which made for a pleasant atmosphere. There was a small shop for those forgotten items and importantly for many people, the washroom and toilet facilities were quite modern and spotlessly clean. Despite my comments above, if you don't mind regimented sites, this site was pretty nice and a good base for touring but perhaps not too tent orientated.

Beyond the site itself, there was a bus stop right outside but as far as I could tell (never could get to grips with timetables) the buses were infrequent. It is a fairly flat walk on pavement to the town and takes about 20 minutes. Beware that in places due to unkempt hedgerows, the pavement is narrow and traffic is fast. Keep your elbows in or risk a swipe with a wing mirror!

I was not too impressed with Milford itself. There were a couple of posh looking restaurants which one would feel embarrassed walking into with jeans and 't' shirt and the 3 pubs were not all that welcoming. Perhaps the best (and the cheapest since the price of a pint varied dramatically in each) was the Smugglers Inn. I never saw the highly recommended fish and chip shop open when I was there so on this occasion I made do with sandwiches from the little Co-op store which stayed open until 10. 00pm.

The highlight of my stay was the walk to Hurst Castle along the shingle spit early one morning (about an hour). Only to find it closed when I arrived. It opens at 10. 30am and I was too early but I couldn't be bothered to wait as from outside it was more like a WW2 fort than a castle and I decided to save my £4. 50 entrance fee (for more sandwiches). Good views across to the Isle of Wight at that point though.

Although I have lived in Hampshire for many years I had not been to Milford on Sea for many more years and I had an enjoyable couple of days, but not an experience I would want to repeat. But as I said at the beginning. These are personal views and others may well find the campsite and the area much more inviting.

A peaceful well run campsite, ideal for a relaxing holiday. At Lytton Lawn you are given a very warm welcome from the friendly wardens. On site, the toilet blocks are kept to a high standard. There is a well-stocked shop, and fresh bread and newspapers can be ordered daily. The surrounding area is well worth exploring.

After finally getting the tow bar fitted to the car we decided to have a weekend here. We have been visiting Milford on Sea for many years, and this year have done 'ice cream at the seaside a month', driving past the site on our way.

It was dark on arrival. Access road is easier than google street view gives credit for. We had a friendly welcome and were shown to our pitch by the warden, who also pointed out the facilities. The only downside is the lead into the the pitch is narrow as it was designed for narrower caravans, so one wheel was on the grass, it being sodden made a track. We use the mover to prevent damage to pitches by the car, so was disappointed to leave a mark.

The pitch was fully serviced, easy to hook up and attach water hose and drainage pipe into the pitch drain. Nicely sheltered by the hedge to 2 sides of the pitch.

Being winter, the games room was closed. But we were happy to walk round the site in the bracing wind.

We visited the sister facility and used the swimming pool for our daughter.

We had fish and chips for a late lunch, followed by an ice cream as we walked along the sea front at Milford on Sea on the Saturday.

Toilet blocks were warm and spotless. The chemical disposal point was easy to use.

We are deciding if Xmas is here or a sister site. We will use this site again, especially off season.

We have been coming to this site for many years and love the friendly staff and spotless shower facilities. The price is very reasonable and you could not fault the location, within easy reach of Christchurch, Bournemouth, Poole etc. And a lot of great places of interest, e. G. Hurst Castle. You can actually see the Isle of Wight from the site! The village of Milford on Sea is just 20 mins walk away with a great Thai and Indian restaurant, plus at least 2 pubs. If staying at Lytton Lawn you still have the choice to visit the local Shorefield site with swimming bath etc. The shop is small but sells all the basics. We really cannot praise this site and location enough.

Over the past 5 years we have been quite picky when choosing a campsite. We were not disappointed with Lytton Lawn.

We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were greeted with a warm welcome from the receptionist. The receptionist was very helpful and polite and answered all of our question concerning the camp site and the local area.

The pitch itself (248) was a stones throw away from the toilets and shower block. As the campsite is on a hill side the pitch was on a gentle incline. At first we thought as this being a problem but it was not, the view itself was looking out beyond the trees to see the Needles (Isle Of Wight), what more could we ask for?

Sunday as forecast the heavens opened (all day rain, YAY!) along with strong winds. The campsite is tree lined and as I mentioned the incline was a bonus as the rain did not leave any puddles or wet patches. There are supermarkets and branded shops within 4 miles of the campsite (Milford On Sea, Lymington & Everton).

So we have a dry site that is protected by trees when the coastal wind gets up and rolling. The facilities were good. We did use the sister site for use of the pool for free, there are other amenities at this site although we did not use them. Our youngest loved the pool although one day the chlorine levels were a little too high. The pool is opened to adults until 10pm and children are allowed to swim until about 9. 15. We opted to use the pool in the evening as it does get busy during peak times as numbers are limited for H&S reasons. The changing facilities were very good.

The shop holds quite a decent stock of the essentials including newspapers and magazines, the prices are very reasonable. The staff are very helpful and polite too.

As we are quite picky, the showers and toilets are always top of our agenda for being clean with plenty of hot water on tap. The block is a little dated but cleaned regulary (could do with new tiles), not sure of the ladies block but the men's block greeted you with the radio playing in the back ground.

We found lots to do within the immediate area and within a 90 minute drive, we found one of the UK's beauty spots : Lolworth Cove is a must, its about 38 miles from the site but well worth a visit, the area is just divine. If you love rolling hills and stunning scenery, you will not be disappointed. The sea at the time was quite cold but very clear, although you will need shoes to walk into the sea because it is not a sandy beach. Durdle Door is just a short walk away, or take a trip in the rib that operates from the cove. Bournemouth needs a day, highlight of the day was the Pier Zip wire, book online to save a few pounds. The beach here is very sandy, parking is very and not pricey. We parked along the cliff line and took the cable car down to the beach. If you can, try and visit the New Forest Country Show in July, it really is a day out for the family, as is viewing the New Forest for the country and the ponies.

Mr Pinks fish and chip shop (Milford On Sea) sell good fish and chips, but they close at 8. 30pm.

There is a small park for under 10s and a games room with wifi, I didn't use the wifi as 3G is easily available. This site is dog friendly but we chose to leave our two BTs in kennels for the week due to the travelling, there are lots of walks and a dog field too.

With Poole, Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle Of Wight close by we felt we should of taken a 14 day holiday instead of 7 days. There is much to do and see and will return to the area next year but will camp in Dorset but around Bridport, we would like to see more of Dorset.

In all we would return to the park and would recommend it to anyone.

The only downside that annoyed us was the repetitive noise of DnB playing a little too loud on two occasions, this was soon sorted by the on site park warden.

BTW I did read reviews of this site and noticed that one or two people both on UKcampsite and FB rated it one star, its clearly a 8 or 9 star campsite. To make the campsite a 10 star site, I think the price could be a bit cheaper and the toilet/showers refurbished.
