Alan Rogers Review

Joanne and David are rightly proud of what they have achieved at South Lytchett Manor and, along with their staff, try hard to meet all your needs and make you very welcome. It has an unusual situation on parkland either side of what was once one of the driveways to the manor itself with impressive gates at the entrance. The 150 touring pitches are level, of a good size, with TV connections and electricity. There are 85 available with gravel hardstanding and a good number also have water, waste water connections and a picnic bench. They are neatly landscaped with rural views. Poole is just three miles away and a 20 minute drive will take you to Bournemouth. A member of the Best of British group.

The manor was occupied by the Americans in the last war and some 500 tanks were once camouflaged down the tree-lined avenue. A path from the site leads to the Courtyard Centre with craft shop and café, and Lytchett Minster itself is within walking distance down the road. The site has an arrangement with the local pub offering a free bottle of wine when purchasing two main courses at the Saint Peter’s Finger. A regular bus service passes the site entrance for nearby Poole or Weymouth and there is much to explore on the Isle of Purbeck and the Jurassic Coast.
