Park Overview

Recognised not only as one of the best campsites in Dorset but in fact the whole UK, South Lytchett Manor offers all modern facilities and is set in an idyllic location. South Lytchett Manor was named best Caravan and Camping Park in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards 2020-21.

Nestled in over 20 acres of tranquil parkland on the former Lytchett Manor estate, this top quality tent, caravan and motorhome park is a firm favourite with many.

If you're looking for a Bournemouth camping option then the town is only a 20 minute drive and Poole is only 3 miles away. Located in pretty Dorset countryside, South Lytchett Manor is an ideal base for exploring outstanding local beauty spots, places of historic interest and a wide variety of nearby family attractions.

Superbly maintained and continually improved, South Lytchett Manor has long been a firm favourite with caravanners and campers alike, many of who return year after year to enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere on this family-run campsite. It is also known as one of the best dog-friendly campsites in Dorset.

The holiday park is known for its clean and modern facilities, achieving the Platinum Loo of the Year accolade three years in a row. Great examples are the new shower rooms, luxurious, heated yet sustainable amenities of the highest standard. The site also offers a wide range of walks through manicured parkland, a two and a half acre mown lead dog walking field with access to the village pub. We also have new dog washing facilities to give your four legged friends a clean after a muddy adventure.

There's even a regular bus service which stops right outside the park gates. This is particularly useful for our motorhome guests who can leave their vehicle on site and hop straight on public transport to explore the local area. Even the buses are dog friendly too!

This combination of excellent facilities and ideal location makes South Lytchett Manor one of the top holiday campsites - not only in Dorset but in the whole UK, as numerous awards have testified.

The park has been voted Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome overall UK Winner for Best Campsite 2018. The park claimed 3 national awards for Best Site for Camping, Best Site for Motorhomes and Best Site for Caravans. The park was also awarded the overall winner of campsite of the year 2016 by the AA and has won the Dorset Tourism Gold Award two years in a row. This year, visitors to the site will be treated to even better facilities, including the paddock offering a variety of pitches sited in full sunshine - some boasting stunning views of Burdens Park. These spacious, deluxe pitches have their own water, drainage, TV hook-up and even their own picnic benches. There is also brand new children's play park equipment.  

Don't forget to visit the brand new cafe and bakery onsite, serving fresh baked goods in the morning, with barista level coffee, tea and yummy homemade cakes. Food Vans are also a regular fixture in high season, with fish and chips, wood fire pizza and burgers being amongst the offerings.
