Had a lovely Easter break at Kevindale site. The wardens are extremely friendly and helpful. Woke up each morning to sounds of chickens clucking much better than being woken by the

Alarm clock. We had a maintenance issue with our caravan, this was rectified with the kind help of the warden Mr Rudd.

Beautiful views from the site

We will return

We have just returned from a fantastic weekend. Yes the weather was beautiful which was the icing on the cake.

The site was very well cared for and safe for children, Keith the owner was a heck of a nice chap and very helpful.

The toilets are basic but functional with oceans of free hot water.

All grass pitches which were well drained and level.

There was even a 'forest' as our 3year old named it which was actually a ring of trees in the centre of the site with a picnic bench in the centre and made a fab den for all the kids !

Great site !

We found this one by chance and pulled in to see if space for a night. We were met by an extremely friendly and helpful owner who made us feel really welcome.

There appears to be 3 pitching areas - all segregated from each other by trees. The site was quiet when we stayed with only a few other units in each area.

Toilets / showers are very old and basic but they do the job and were kept very clean.

Very little lighting on site so you may need a torch for the less light evenings.

The pub in the village is currently closed down but there is a pub in the next village which is about 10 minutes walk along the country lane. Good food and beer and reasonably priced.

All in all a good CL with basic facilities.

What a lovely little place - Had a very friendly warm welcome from Keith the site owner.

Beautifully kept site, clean facilities with plentiful hot water. Nice and quiet - which is essential for us!

It's well kept and tidy with full recycling facilities - which makes a change as we usually end up taking ours home - so this was an added bonus for us.

Nearest supermarket is about 3 miles away at Craven Arms (Harry Tuffins - it's brill). Also in Craven arms an few takeaways - chippy, Chinese, Indian. A few pretty looking pubs that I am reliably informed serve nice food.

There is a railway that runs parallel to the the site, but over the course of a long weekend (Friday to Monday) we heard about 6 trains go passed so this is definitely not a problem.

Fees are very reasonable at 5 per adult, 3 electric, 2 per child - all charged per night. Hot water is plentiful and free. In fact in my opinion to charge 50p per adult per shower would not be unreasonable as to heat all the water must cost the man an absolute fortune.

Keith did say that he occasionally has rallies and events at the site and when this happens the site is not a quiet and tranquil as normal - So if you like peace - avoid the bank holidays and call in advance to check for events.

All in all this site has a big thumbs up from us and we will definitely visit again.

Have just returned from a fabulous stay at Kevindale. If you're the kind of person that gets upset by 2 different coloured porcelain sinks in the shower block, then don't stay here. If, however, you love the outdoors and would like a friendly welcome from the site owner then look no further. I suspect that the facilities have been improved since the last reviews posted on this site. The showers are now included in the price and there is plenty of hot water. The women's block is quite nice - 2 toilets and one shower. I never had to wait to use either. The men in our party said that the male facilities were 'basic but adequate'

There is a designated washing up area and the site has fabulous views over the Shropshire Hills.

If you have dogs then be warned that there are sheep on this site, but my dog, and all the others on the site, seemed to cope with this quite well.

You will have the choice of a more sheltered area, or an area that has wondrous views - we chose the latter.

As previously mentioned by other reviewers, the Engine and Tender pub is next door - mentioned in the Good Ale guide 1990 the sign on the door proudly proclaims. The pub is ok, but nothing to write home about.

At the time of writing the site fees are 4.50 per person per night, whatever sort of unit you are in plus 2.50 for an electric hook up. There is a field that Keith the owner made available for dog walks.

If you are a dog owner, please be warned that local farmers seem to have blocked off most of the public rights of way recorded on the O.S. Maps, or made them as inaccessible as possible. If any right to roam campaigners are reading this, there is serious work to do in this area, my friends. Also, there are very few walks where you can exercise your dog off the lead - Stiperstones and the Long Mynde both have lots of sheep so any off lead exercise was difficult here.

I don't want to detract from the great site, though and an owner that obviously enjoyed interacting with his guests.

This site is wonderful the facilities are very clean plenty of hot water both in shower room and the washing up area. The owner of the site is very pleasant and very helpful nothing not to much trouble for him. The site is flat and very peaceful we enjoyed our four days and will be returning very soon, there is a pub at the bottom of the drive called the engine and tender which is very pleasant and friendly also at the bottom of the lane a ten min walk nice and slow is another pub called the Kangaroo which serve meals and have a garden we had food there and highly recommend trying it out. There is no shop but a ten min drive into craven arms is a supermarket.
