South Lytchett Manor is set in 22 acres of stunning Dorset parkland in a village location in easy reach of Bournemouth and Poole. The Park is landscaped, with mature trees and seasonal bedding plants for a beautiful and tranquil setting to your holiday.
Dave, Jo, Matt, Em and the team assure you of a warm welcome to this family-run park, offering top quality camping, caravanning and motorhome stays with high levels of customer service- just look at our TripAdvisor and other reviews!
We offer large level pitches; super pitches for larger tents and fantastic deluxe pitches either hard standing or grass which come with your own water, drainage, TV, EHU free Wi-fi and a picnic bench.
A regular bus service stops outside the gates, taking you to Poole in one direction and Swanage in the other which means we are perfectly located for exploring all that Dorset has to offer.
Amenities on site or nearby include a fully fenced mown off-lead 2.5 acre dog walking meadow and a fully serviced dog wash for muddy pooches. Two lovely village pubs are a 10 and 15 minute walk away and a courtyard craft centre, with a cafe, just a short walk from the site.
Completely refurbished, the amenity blocks are heated, with powerful showers, piped music, fresh flowers, professional hairdryers, with separate family and disabled shower all maintained to an exceptional level of cleanliness.
In addition, the site has a well-stocked shop selling eggs from our free range chickens and a cafe complete with a bakery on site.
New for 2021, our cafe serves barista level coffee and plenty of homemade cake, and street food vendors visit the site with high quality food four evenings per week in the high season. There is a children's playground, free wifi access across the park, a microwave facility and great Raleigh bikes for hire.
If Glamping is more your style, we have four fantastic Romany bowtop caravans, hand-built with beautiful interiors and seven handcrafted Shepherd Huts. We have also added six luxury Glamping Pods for the 2021 season, which were made by our very own hands onsite! They all sleep up to four people, with prices starting from £60.00 per night and a great chance to get away from it all in supreme comfort and style.
We look forward to welcoming you!
