 Our first ever camping holiday. Beautiful quiet spacious site, helpful and friendly staff but above all, fabulous shower and toilet facilities.

Fresh baked authentic croissants, pain au Chocolat and pain au raisin from the shop that rival the best we've had in France.

We were also close enough to walk to take part in the Saturday morning park run at Upton Country Park.

The motorhome was hired as a trial run. It's made us decide we want our own and will go back to this campsite.

 Lovely site which is well maintained by a caring and friendly staff.

Clean facilities and a well stocked shop which was almost european in it's approach (fresh bread, cake and pastries available every monring from 0800).

The toilets were inspected and cleaned every 40 minutes, though this didn't stop some people thinking the mops were there for decoration or use by only the staff and not cleaning shower stalls after use.

Local pub (not the nearest) was delightful with a good menu at reasonable prices, and plenty of take away options for those who wanted not to cook but eat at "home".

Well worth a visit, but make sure you know what type of pitch you've booked as there were a few people who thought they'd booked fully serviced pitches but actually hadn't owing to the naming convention.

We're going back there next year, so we're impressed!

Reviewer: Leahs 1 review from this member

 As new campers, this was our second time camping. The facilities at the campsite were amazing!

The staff were all so friendly and there was so much to keep our family occupied in the area.

The only gripe I have was the noisy road next to the field we were in. 2/3 nights we were woken up by loud, I assume motorbikes.

But everything else was amazing and we will definitely be returning!

 We enjoyed the friendly staff. Clean facilities.

Site needs us to have the ability to show pitches, so we can request a pitch. Some are too to shaded.

Otherwise a great site. Thanks will look at booking again. Hopefully being able to choose pitch

 Yet again a lovely welcome and stay at South Lytchett Manor Park.

Stayed 26th June to 11th July.

Felt very safe staying as the Park had Sanitizer at all the doors of all buildings and masks had to be worn to enter.

Even Sanitizer at gates of Playground. Although we have never taken children camping.

Due to Covid 19 had to move 2020 booking to this year.

Since our last visit 2019, the Coffee shop addition to the shop was greatly used by us. Hot drinks, different Breads and pastries, available each day.

Friday to Sunday mornings, being able to have Bacon Rolls from the pop up pod saved not having to cook on these mornings.

Saturday evenings Fiery Fox Pizza visited and their freshly cooked pizzas were lovely.

We had a super grass pitch with EHU, for our Outwell Drummond 7 Tent.

Already booked our 2022 pitch.

 This is a very nice site with very friendly and helpful staff. The pitches do seem a bit cramped, but manageable.

Although there is free wifi it is almost non existent on most of the park as we walked around looking for a better signal. Even next to the office you were lucky to get a signal and that dropped out constantly.

Mobile signal is very poor and at times we were lucky to get 2 bars up. Not a big deal but annoying when you want to check bank details and the signal keeps dropping out.

What is amazing is that the site caters for over 300 pitches of all sizes but they only have two washing machines and two dryers.

This meant queueing to use the washing machines or walking back to your pitch and trying again later.

 The EH grass pitches are rather cramped.

The site is close to a dual carridgeway which is intrusive at night.

Very useful on site cafe, bakery and shop

 We had high hopes for SLM given the awards and reviews but our experience was quite disappointing for a few reasons. Overall it has to be said the site is well located, fully staffed, clean with plenty of facilities and a great shop. However, please note the following if you are considering it.

A week before we arrived our confirmation stated we would be adjacent to the childrenís playground and if this was unacceptable we needed to contact them for a change. I did that but they were unable to accommodate this as they were full.

They stated we were told this on our original booking (which upon checking was true but it was buried in the small print). We arrived on a busy Saturday in July to find the pitch we had been allocated was tiny.

The staff insisted on the tent being erected end-on rather than laterally as you would normally do. This meant our ground sheet would have straddled the road and had no guy ropes pegged out (with 55mph winds predicted).

Having been told they were full and unable to accommodate a change we half expected to have to turn round and go home. 20 minutes later they miraculously managed to find a vacant pitch that was big enough.

All looked fine as we were against a hedge and adjacent a fine oak tree with enough room to pitch the required way. Only the following morning did we realise this wasnít such a great pitch after all.

It was next to the dog exercise field and the site was overrun with dog owners. Hence at 6:30 each morning we were awoken by barking dogs, owners shouting at dogs and each other plus the constant clanging of the access gate and the metal poo bin.

In theory quiet time is until 8:00 but dog owners donít seem to care or consider non-dog owners (very much in the minority). Why they offer pitches right next to this melee is mystifying.

So overall be very wary about where you are allocated (especially pitch 209 and its neighbours). The rest of the site is also very crammed in so it seems the over-riding philosophy is money making rather than customer experience.

Quite a shame really as it could be excellent. 
Management response: To clarify the points raised, The pitch was booked online by yourselves online in February 2021 and we emailed it clearly in the confirmation, not in the small print!, to say it was near the playground and to let us know if this is acceptable. The potential proximity to the playground is stated on your main booking page.

Sadly, you left it just one 1 week before arrival, making it impossible to move the booking as we were full.

On arrival it transpired that the tent was larger than stated on the booking, resulting in being unable to fit on that particular plot anyway.

The pitch we therefore had to allocate was a 12x9 m sq, regrettably you were unhappy with this too.

Sorry we did not meet your expectations of us and we wish you happy camping experiences in the future.
