We spent 4 days over Christmas on this site. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The facilities are spotlessly clean and warm with music playing. The dog exercise area was completely enclosed allowing our Springer Spaniel the freedom he enjoys whilst keeping him safe. Doggy bags were also provided. Nearby Upton Park is a lovely place to visit being very dog friendly with some lovely walks. We visited Lulworth Cove on Boxing Day with its beautiful coastal walks and stunning views of Durdle Door. The Lulworth Cove Inn is well worth a visit, serving excellent food. This campsite is definitely one of our favourites. We will return.

Stayed here for 4 days what a great site very clean good pitch size showers / toilets very clean the shop was also great loads of different items from food drink, the staff there were very polite and helpful. Bud stop right outside for either Poole or Swanage plus 2 nice pubs within a 10 min walk also a little cafe at the rear of the site. Would differently recommend this site and would go again. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Great place to stay, 8 years since we last stayed here and it has been improved a lot and you get the feeling they are improving things all the time ( new play park for 2017)

The only reason it hasn't got 10 stars is due to price, its not the cheapest place to stay but if you want to treat yourself then it is well worth it.

Will I stay again, yes. Just not sure when, but probably sooner than another 8 years.

The site has most everything right or even perfect and is a good base for visiting about Dorset. The pitches are grassy, level, well drained, easily pegged, accessed, most had power hookups and were protected from any wind but restricted in size when the site is full. The shop does its job, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The toilet blocks were as good as they get with free showers. Access to the site is manage such that you feel secure and cared for. We had a very fine stay there. There is only one hitch or note - it is one of noisiest campsites you could find. If noise doesn't bother you then this is a fine site. If it does then look elsewhere. If it were not for the noise I would give this site a very high rating indeed.

Lovely campsite with large pitches. We found it to be in an area which was convenient for all the places we love to visit. Staff were very friendly. Even though this is a large site the toilet block always seemed clean & spotless with no cues for the showers. We found their microwave which was kept in the information hut at the entrance - this was handy to warm anything up. The dog walking area was huge which was great for our two to run off their leads. I think an addition of some small hedges to divide the pitches would make the site even more perfect. We would definitely go again.

My wife and I stayed at South Lytchett Manor campsite with our two children (8 and 10 years old) for 5 nights in August. Our children relish a little independence so the opportunity for them to play and explore safely, without their parents hovering over them is very important to all of us. I'm pleased to say South Lytchett Manor met our requirements completely.

The site is impeccably maintained with good sized flat pitches. The toilets and showers were always clean. I was pleased to see that recycling is taken seriously throughout the site, and it was great to see all the staff using bicycles to get around.

I have read a number of reviews referring to the terms and conditions or rules which apply on this campsite. Personally I very much appreciated rules which encourage respect and consideration for other people staying on the site. On our first night we were unfortunately forced to listen to a family with older teenage children shouting and swearing for more than an hour after the 10:30pm curfew. The site owner had strong words with the family the following day and we had no further problems. This is a campsite with a strong bias towards families with younger children - teenagers or groups of adults may find that the requirement for absolute quiet after 10:30pm does not fit well with their evening plans!

To summarise, I cannot recommend South Lytchett Manor highly enough. I'm sure we will back soon.

Reviewer: Jim1977 8 reviews from this member

We visited the site in mid summer during school holidays and the site was full, staying on Minster Field in our tent for a week. Our super pitch was very spacious, with plenty of room for our large tent, trailer and car. The field was nice and flat and we had a hedge behind for privacy. Nice and open with no trees overhead (apart from over 2 plots on the far side of the field). Would recommend Minster Field as the best spot for campers, as it's away from the road and school at the two sides of the site.

Despite being full, the site facilities coped well and I never had to queue for a toilet, shower or pot wash (although I did go at just off peak times of the day). The site was obviously busy with activity, but at the same time it was not rowdy of noisy, it was all quiet well before 11 every night, some nights even by 9!

Other reviews have mentioned the traffic noise, we only noticed this on Friday night, the rest of the week it was not intrusive at all.

The site was well tended, being regularly mowed and watered while we were there, and the toilets were always very clean at all times of the day. The water pressure did seem to dip in the showers at times, but only temporarily. The shower cubicles were well laid out with room to hang clothes and towels plus a bench and screen to keep things dry. Piped music in the amenities blocks!

The location is superb, with Poole, Bournemouth, Corfe Castle, Studland etc only a short drive away in each direction. The playground was fairly small, but the kids enjoyed it and it was well maintained.

We took advantage of the offer of a free bottle of wine at the local pub with a voucher from the site, it was a lovely family pub and well recommended. Beer garden and play area to the rear and food was good.

We will return at some point in the future I'm sure.

We looked forward to staying on this site, having read many glowing reviews, unfortunately we were disappointed.

The welcome was over enthusiastic and a little forced. Pitches not as generous as many other sites so where we were felt like a hospital corridor rather than a campsite. Being very close to the entrance we suffered from continuous traffic as well. The TV hook up was good but quite a long way away from our pitch - luckily we had two long leads.

The facilities block that we used has basic features, although adequate, they are looking tired, the lack of shower curtains meant that the changing area floor ended up as wet as the shower area, and keeping clothes and shoes dry was difficult. First thing in the morning when we used them the areas were not as clean as they could be, possibly due to the high volume of traffic!

We left early a lot of others did the same.

This is a really well laid out site which was easy to find. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and provided lots of information when we booked in. We have 2 dogs and the dog walking facilities on site were first class with areas available for both on lead and off lead walks. The site shop provided a good range of basic food produce, camping supplies and also off-licence goods. The toilets and showers were spotlessly clean and it was a nice touch having a shower and listening to piped music at the same time! There is a craft courtyard nearby which can be accessed from the site - good range of crafts and a tearoom available. Good bus service also available from right outside the site entrance. The only downside was the congestion at the entrance gate if more than 3 units arrived at the same time - nowhere to go especially if units were also leaving the site. That said, this is a lovely site that we would definitely visit again.
