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.

Can't praise this site enough. Toilets and showers are excellent. Owners couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The site is quite large but is still quiet and spacious. It is in an excellent position straight off the main road and between Sidmouth and Lyme Regis. There is even a little free bus that will pick you up on site that will take you down into Sidmouth. Nice country lane walk for doggies.

A great campsite, stayed for two nights with a tent and although the site is mainly caravans this didn't impact my stay and everyone is really friendly and helpful

The whole site is very well maintained and the facilities are kept spotless and are very modern, one of the best campsites I have stayed at and will certainly return

A perfect location for our visit to river cottage which I booked easily over the phone, on arrival late afternoon we were greeted at reception by very friendly owners who showed us a few available pitches for us to choose from. We set up on our chosen pitch near to the toilet /shower facilities, which were absolutely spotless every time we used them. There was also an area for washing up dishes if needed. Our pitch was spacious with plenty of room for our caravan, awning and car on our hard standing level pitch (there are a lot of large pitches plus some which are a bit smaller but all big enough for all equipment) The whole site was level with addition space at the rear of the site where there were camping pitches and also the option to rent camping pods. In reception area there was a shop with essentials plus fresh bread and cakes daily, there was also a seated area where you could relax. There was a play area for children which our daughter enjoyed. During the season there are times when catering outlets visit the site for a few hours giving holiday makers the option of a nice reasonably priced treat and a break from cooking. We are new this year to touring caravan holidays and I chose this site purely on location and we were really pleased with the site, the owners were brilliant, nothing too much trouble and the whole site was clean and tidy. All visitors complied with night time noise curfew which was great for a good sleep. Great location for Sidmouth and Seaton but also only about 10 miles from river cottage which has some good events throughout the year. Also worth a visit is the local Donkey sanctuary which is only a couple of miles away. I cannot put down any negative comments because we didn't see or have any issues at all. We will definitely be returning next year.

Spent two nights here over the late May bank holiday to test out our new tent.

Main field is fairly full with seasonal caravans, we were shown to one of ?2 other fields and offered our choice of pitch. Field was level and grass nice and short. We chose a corner near the entrance to the dog walking area. Close enough to still be near the facilities but a bit quieter than the main field.

The washing up and toilet facilities were excellent. Cleaned daily and spotless. Lovely reception area with shop and cafe.

There is a lovely outside play area for kids and an indoor playroom which was a great hit with my 3 year old. Ask for the key from reception.

Great location, nice a quite. Handy shuttle bus for Sidmouth and donkey sanctuary.

Owners were very friendly and helpful.

Will definitely be returning.

We stayed here for 3 nights, this is our second visit in the last 2 years and have just booked a third time for the end of May. We absolutely love this site! The owners, and their support staff, are always VERY friendly and helpful. They made sure that we could be near the entrance to the dog walk, as we had requested, and the site is always very clean and tidy. The shower blocks are new and are kept clean and tidy. The hot water is always plentiful.

The site, although quite busy was very quiet and peaceful. The shop is stocked with fresh bread, cakes and pastries at reasonable prices. There is a nice comfortable seating area with sofas and table and chairs. We ordered two papers for each morning we were there and these were there by 8. 30 every morning. Although, this time, we did not use the chippy van this is a lovely thing to have on a Saturday evening.

We do not have any children but the play area has been upgraded and looks very enticing with lots of different and exciting things for the children to play on.

We have 3 small dogs. Unlike most campsites that only allow a maximum of 2 dogs per pitch, Kingsdown Tail do not have a maximum and at 1 per night per dog, we thought this was very reasonable. The dog walk is a lovely little track running alongside the campsite, shaded by trees and hedges. It's very secluded and great to let the dogs run.

As said, the owners are fantastic. When trying to book for the May bank holiday weekend, I was told they were very full and all the main pitches had been booked. They have gone out of their way to accommodate us in another field, with electric, which we feel is amazing service!

We would DEFINITELY recommend this site for a break. It is very close to Sidmouth and Beer and our trips to the donkey sanctuary are part of every trip. The pub down the road is great but the road is very steep and busy with not a lot of paths so driving would probably be safer than walking. We hope you do visit this site and enjoy is as much as we do!
