Excellent site. Toilet and shower facilities are clean, owners are very friendly and helpful. Nice children's play area. We've been several times over the last few years and will book again. Lots to do in the local area, Sidmouth is nice and Lyme Regis is great. This is THE best site we've been to and I highly recommend it.

My friend and I were lucky enough to secure the new 'Family Pod' for our stay at Kings Down Tail during Sidmouth Folk Week.

Basically, our 'Hobbit House' as our friends called it, had a couple of ears on the outside, one of which is a double bed, and the other is a toilet and wash hand basin. In the main 'body' of the pod is a bunk bed with double mattress below and single above, a curved sofa, a coffee table and a small kitchenette area containing a sink, microwave, kettle, fridge and TV.

All very cosy and theoretically accommodating 6 persons. However, we found it to be perfect for 2! Whilst it's true that 6 people (at a push) could sleep there, that would leave absolutely nowhere for anybody's 'stuff. ' There is a bit of cupboard space under the sink and work surface and we put our food/utensils/cooking stuff there. Our clothes etc were all stored on the bottom bunk with one of us sleeping on the top bunk and the other in the 'ear. '

The Pod really came into its own when it rained, and boy did it rain! It was very lovely holed up there while the heavens opened. You would, however, have to be good friends with anyone you stayed with as you can hear everything.

We also took full advantage of the fire pit and had a BBQ for a few friends one evening.

So, an experience we can recommend but sadly one we won't be repeating as unbeknownst to us the campsite took a booking for next year's Folk Week the day we arrived. Naively we thought we would get the option to book first, but it wasn't to be, and I guess that next year we will either be in a tent or a B & B!

Fantastic location for visiting Sidmouth, Seaton, Beer, lyme Regis etc. Bus stop outside goes to all the above places, also free hopper bus that goes to Sidmouth stopping at Donkey sanctuary.

Nice level pitches with water taps near by. Washroom very clean with plenty of room in cubicle. There is also three all in one washrooms with toilet basin and shower.

Very good play park for kids and indoor play room for toddlers.

Reasonable price shop on site with wifi and leaflets.

Laundry facilities and dishwashing also available.

Dog walk at back along track near Donkeys with bin either end.

Only slight problem was no regulator on showers, lights kept dimming, road noise not a problem but some might have problem with loud donkeys.

I would recommend this site.

Stayed on the site in a tent for half term. We were in the sheep fold which was quite a walk to the main shower block but was spacious and gave the kids plenty of room to run around.

The main shower block was well maintained and clean. The showers were hot, almost too hot for the children. There was plenty of hot water for washing up and the addition of draining racks was useful.

The children loved the play area.

Great site for visiting the area. It is next to a main road but the only noise was from the sheep in the field next door.

Would definitely recommend this site.

Stayed here as part of a group of families with young children camping at Kings Tail. The camping field is nice and level and took tent pegs easily. The only small downside is that the road is quite close to traffic noise was easily heard.

There is a lovely playground and playroom which our kids took full advantage of. Everything there was well maintained.

The toilets and showers were kept very clean and it was very handy having the site launderette for when my smallest had an accident in the middle of the night!

The staff were also very friendly and helpful - overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would have no problem recommending to anyone.

Excellent site, very convenient for coast from Sidmouth to Lyme Regis.

Shower block and toilets very clean although no heating. Particularly liked the shower rooms with toilet and basin. Grass cut short but could do with a laid path to the bins and water disposal when the grass is wet. Right on main road but minimal night time traffic noise. Will return when in this area again.

Free wi-fi in reception, basics available in shop.
