We have just returned home after a very enjoyable week at Kings down : We went there after finding the campsite we intended staying at wasn't to our liking. We had no idea what Kingsdown was like, we were in for a lovely surprise! after a warm welcome we were shown to the pitches that were available and told to choose which one we wanted, all the pitches were spacious, its a lovely place, the facilities are absolutely second to none, spotlessly clean showers and toilets, plenty of hot water, a very nice reception area and well stocked shop, you can order newspapers which are delivered to you daily, the couple who run the park simply cannot do enough for you, they mean you to have a perfect stay. We have been to many campsites over the years and this one certainly measures up. We will definitely visit again :

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!

We visited this site mid season, the pitch allocated was just about big enough for our van and awning. In all fairness the pitch next to us was left vacant so we could park our cars, a nice touch. This is a family run site and the owners were very friendly. They never stopped working, when a pitch was vacated the grass was cut straight away. Toilets and showers great, never lacked hot water and always clean, family bathroom a nice touch if you have young children. Shop sold all the basics and included small café. Site easy to get to and handy for Seaton/ Sidmouth etc. Wifi was a little hit and miss but as it was free can't complain. Would have liked the option of our own water and drainage like some of the seasonal pitches but that's just being picky. We have in the past visited a larger site just down the road but we much prefer this one and we will visit again soon.

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.
