Dave and Victoria were very welcoming and helpful. Kings Down Tail is a quiet, clean and tidy site. Lovely play area for children and the area is flat with easy access to Sidmouth, Seyton, etc.

The facilities are plentiful and well maintained, lots of hot showers! We enjoyed our stay very much, thank you!

We have just returned from a 4 night stay and cannot wait to go back. Very family friendly site and the facilities are great. Cannot recommend site enough. We arrived Monday morning and were given numerous pitches to choose from but we decided to pitch up in the overflow field. Not far to walk to facilities and the kids loved playing in the field. The shop on site is very reasonably priced and has fresh bread, pastry's and a wide choice of food, drink and even camping goods. We were extremely impressed with the choice and prices. Next time we will stay for longer and make a point of ordering fish n chips on a sat delivered to the site. The play area has had numerous new additions which make it very enjoyable for the kids. If you want a great family site you will not be disappointed at all and the owners cannot do enough to help.

What a lovely site! Situated only a few miles from Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth etc, Kings Down Tail is real gem of a site with great facilities and hosts in the new site owners.

A completely level site, with lots of space and a fantastic play area for the kids (my son could have happily spent the whole weekend in the pirate ship), a perfect place to relax.

The showers are really warm with good pressure and unlike many campsites, once they are on, they are on, no annoying buttons to keep pressing to get the water. I believe that the shower and toilet facilities are going to receive an upgrade for the 2015 season which will improve the site even further.

Really useful little shop including a fresh herb garden to help add a bit extra to your BBQ.

With such a lovely a welcome from the Paget family, we are already looking forward to our next visit to Kings Down Tail.

Spent 6 nights here.

Check in was bit quirky, owner knew we were arriving but allocated a pitch on the fly. Showed us to the pitch, quite large, gravel standing but space for awning to go onto grass. All serviced pitches large and flat. Site access good - straight of the A road. Traffic noise not an issue due to roadside hedges and trees.

Site clean and oddly quiet for a peak week in a popular area but might have been due to high proportion of unoccupied seasonal pitches.

Shower/toilet blocks looked dated but clean and functional, might strain if site full. Shop small but adequate - Morrisons 5 mins away. No club house. Games rooms, playground and lots of safe space for kids to play. A huge unserviced (and this week unoccupied) camping field could increase the play area.

Surrounding area worth a visit but mainly for 'chilling' rather than 'doing'(walking/cycling excepted). Those with little 'uns should be aware that local beaches are mainly pebble. Sidford, on way to Sidmouth, has an excellent chippy - Bloaters.

All in all a really nice site and a good location.

After initial unhappiness as had booked electric pitch to be told that there was none left, then to be shown to one that was uneven, to finally being shown to a lovely pitch, we were very happy.

Lovely site, very clean and lots of space for the children. Shop stocks most essentials but do check opening times on arrival. Some road noise during the day, but much quieter at night.

Fantastic location, sheltered from the coast but close enough to visit Beer, Seaton, Sidmouth within a 10 min drive. Would definitely visit again.

Large field for tent with water pipe at entrance, grassy areas and you pitch anywhere.

Main area as you drive in is for caravans which are close together. This area is for EHU.

Toilets and showers are clean with plenty of hot water. I never waited for a shower cubicle once and site was packed.

Laundry room and washing up are together which is good, very clean areas and washers and dryers are operated with a token from reception.

Toilet block is available in main area where caravans are and it's quite a walk from tent field, especially if you have kids who want to go to loo every two mins. The tent field was great as at bottom end you could play with your dog and let dog off lead.

I only visited shop twice which was to book in and pay my money on arrival and another visit for bits and pieces.

Villages and towns around the campsite are lovely and Beer and branscombe and Sidmouth are great, lovely shops in Beer, if your interested in animals a visit to donkey sanctuary is well worth a trip and it's free!
