Absolutely 5 star campsite! This wonderful campsite is run extremely well. The fields and pitches are lovely, spacious and clean. We spent 7 days there and never once had a complaint. The toilets and shower areas are spotless regardless of time of day. They even have hand cream for the gentle folk among us! Showers were always hot and not the usual campsite dribble type shower, Probably better than a lot of hotels we've stayed in. Washing up areas also spotless. Surprisingly, with some many families on a site we never saw a single piece of litter across the site. The staff are friendly and on hand for advice. I had a few questions as new to camping and all advice was spot on. The shop was reasonably cheap and had awesome fresh bread and eggs every morning. Egg were fresh from the chickens not far from our tent. For the kids the free WiFi was cool. They tend to get bored on the cold evenings so this was just the ticket. All in all a fantastic week in Dorset made even better by by this campsite and staff. We are planning a stay again soon. Jo, Dave and staff make this a place to want to come back too again. A little Gem

Thank you for your kind comments. We work really hard to make sure all our facilities and camping areas are kept to a high standard even at the busiest times of the year. fresh bread is baked daily and provided by a local bakery, and the eggs laid by our chickens are always popular with our guests. We are pleased your stay was a pleasant one and hopefully you will continue with your camping trips and we look forward to seeing you again on our park in the near future.
Take care
All the team at South Lytchett Manor

We have only been camping twice before this trip, and that was 3 years ago, so booked a 3 night stay here to help us decide whether to keep or sell our camping equipment ! The online booking process was excellent, and I got a phone call from a very nice lady at the site, to confirm that the pitch we would be allocated would suit our needs. We pitched by the play area, and had electric hook up, and plenty of room for our tent and car. The water tap was merely feet away, handy for filling the kettle early in the morning, and the toilet/shower block not much further. The site is immaculate, very well laid out, and the staff work very hard to keep it that way. The showers, toilets and washbasin cubicles were kept extremely clean, even in the very wet weather with people traipsing in with wet shoes on ! The on site shop is open from 8am to 10pm, and there is plenty of choice, from freshly baked bread to freshly laid eggs from the on site chickens ! Also there is a limited, but perfectly adequate selection of wines and beers! You can also pick up a voucher for a free bottle of wine from the pub - St Peters Finger - as long as you buy 2 main courses , and you can collect a voucher from the shop every day if you wish ! The wine was very good too, we went twice, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal, all the better for being washed down with a free bottle of red ! The pub is an easy 7 minute or so stroll from the campsite, and made a very pleasant end to the evening. We met some lovely people at South Lytchett Manor, and found all of the staff to be very friendly, helpful and pleasant - no wonder it has won so many awards ! Are we going to keep or sell our camping equipment ? Well, we are going to give our tent to our daughter and son in law, as we will be looking to buy a newer tent for next year, so this was a very successful trip, and South Lytchett Manor played a major part in our decision ! We will be returning to Dorset next year to visit our Grandchildren who live in swanage, and South Lytchett Manor is top of the list ..... see you next Summer !

Room Tip: We had pitch 85, by the play area, and found that to be a lovely area on the site.

We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and that we played a part in your decision to not give up camping, and we are extremely pleased that you are hoping to come back and stay with us again next year while visiting your Grandchildren in Swanage.

We have just returned from a week at this campsite and I had to leave a review.
We have camped as a family for a number of years now and I have never stayed on a better camp site!
The staff are welcoming and friendly, the pitches are level and huge, the shower and toilet blocks were always spotless (the site was full & I have no idea how they keep it as pristine as it was, no matter what time of day or night you go went they were always spotless) the site rule of no noise after 10.30 was welcome by us and everyone around us stuck to the rule too.
The site has chickens so there are fresh eggs available every morning and the fresh croissants were delicious too. It's close to Poole Quay which we visited almost daily and Monkey World which is a MUST visit place too.
We went to the local pub the St Peters Finger twice during our stay (using the free wine voucher given by the sure both times) and the food and service was delicious.
I can not recommend this site highly enough and we will definitely be back next year.

Just spent 5 nights at this campsite. Was greeted by very friendly staff who were very informative and showed us to our pitch.
Pitches were all marked and plenty of room for us to sit. The campsite is so clean and tidy and very well laid out.
One thing I always dread when camping are the toilets and showers and these were the best I've ever seen. Always clean and freshly cut flowers. Piped music playing and the showers were always clean. There is a sign asking people to mop out shower area after use which some people moan about but everyone seemed happy to do and made sure the floor was always clean for the next person to use. I did notice that the campsite is so quiet at night time which was good as you were able to get to sleep with no problems.
The shop on site is well stocked well and had everything you need.
The location is perfect and loads to do close by. There is a bus stop at the entrance but we didn't use this as we drove and had no problems parking at the places we visited.
The local pub St peters finger, I would highly recommend, the food and service were of high standard. They have a lovely beer garden and small play area for the children. This pub is a short walk from the campsite.
I would definately return to this campsite if I visited this area again.

Returned on Friday from a lovely 5 night stay. We only booked 2 days before we went and the staff were very helpful in moving around the bookings to fit us in for a 4 night break and then when we asked to stay another night they were very helpful again to be honest we would of loved to stay even longer. Great facility and never had to wait for a shower. Lovely little well stocked site shop. Great location for exploring the area. We will definitely be visiting again.
Thanks to all the staff.

This is a very well maintained and friendly campsite. The whole process from booking, through check in and any time you go to the shop/reception is easy, warm and helpful. There are plenty of staff there to keep everywhere clean and tidy and the shower/toilet blocks are superb. Hot showers, clean facilities and plenty of them meant I didn't have to queue once.
We had deluxe tent pitch by the play park so our kids could entertain themselves whilst we got on with cooking etc but could also keep an eye on them. We also took our dogs which again was easy as there is a small off the lead field and plenty of lovely walks nearby. The local pub is also dog friendly which helps.
Overall a fantastic third stay for us, highly recommend this site. Other point to note is the free wifi throughout the site, excellent.
