Great Location

We have been to this site on two previous occasions and have booked our third visit. The site as good transport links to Exeter or in the other direction to Teignmouth (with its long promenade and good beaches) or further down the line Newton Abbott with good shopping. On all occasions we have been met with a very warm welcome from Kath, who explains about the surrounding area and gives you leaflets to choose your own visits within the surrounding area. Since our first visit there has been a great improvement to the chemical waste area. Sainsbury supermarket is a one bus stop ride away from the site. It is a quite and peaceful site and excellent value for money.

Beautiful Peaceful site ..But..

We arrived at Kimberley such a lovely site for views etc ..eventually pitched up at the bottom of the pitch.. Kathy eventually greeted us and although we had only booked a week was able to accommodate us for 2 weeks. She is very friendly and approachable. Very peaceful and quiet . Great for dogs ours loved playing on the very large spacious field .. great dog walking close by around the farm and at Dawlish Country Park . We loved finding the different carvings on the posts and benches around it. Ideal for visiting Dawlish Warren.. Teignmouth Torquay etc... My BUT..... leveling our twin wheeler was a nightmare in all our years of caravanning 30+ we have never had such a problem we had to go buy extra levellers and the front corner steady on our 1 year old caravan buckled which my husband had to replace. Everything seemed to be on a tilt .with the weather being so glorious we spent most of our time outside eating etc..and even getting our table level was a nightmare to prevent cups etc sliding off which happened a few times... Would I visit again . NO. just down to the logistics of tryung to get level ....such a pity really because the site itself is so peaceful... perhaps if a bit od money was spent getting It more level would help but I understand that Kathy can't afford to do this

Comment from the Club

Many thanks for leaving a review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Kimberley CL Site and were able to extend your holiday for another week to get the most enjoyment out of the site and surrounding area. The CL owner has been in touch as she would like to address your concerns as she works really hard to ensure everyone has a wonderful time, greeting them as soon as she is able with information about the site and leaflets of things to do in the area. Please be assured the site is well cared for with many improvements made to the site this year. This is a quiet and peaceful location set in beautiful countryside. With regards to your comments about levelling, there are slopes on the site as it is set in a countryside field but the CL owners have not had any complaints before and are always happy to assist with levelling if required. They do have guests return time and time again for the beautiful location, countryside peace and quiet and the excellent value for money.

Lovely peaceful CL

Quiet site, clean and tidy. Lovely view of nearby farmland, two gorgeous foals when we were there. Be sure you follow site directions not sat nav, sat nav take some you down narrow lanes where it is impossible to pass. Very scary. Leaflets left for use and owner very welcoming and friendly. Bus stop bottom of road within easy walking distance. Buses to Dawlish, Starcross, Teignmouth etc very handy I found you are in a motorhome.

A very relaxing stay.

We had just the one night at Kimberly, but would certainly return if we are in the area. Kathy, the owner, is very friendly and welcoming and gave us a choice of pitches, which were all well spaced out and well tended. You will need leveling blocks unless you're not too fussy about a level van, but that's a minor point on an otherwise lovely open plan site. Basic facilities only, but so peaceful, and just a short distance to the surrounding towns and beaches.

Enjoyable stay

Just returned from a lovely stay at this site. As stated you will need levelers and do make sure you don't use a sat nav but the instructions given as there are some very narrow lanes around there! Television reception not very good so an aerial lead is provided on each pitch...nice touch! Kathy was very friendly and helpful, worked very hard keeping it all tidy with the help of her son who was a dad hand on the ride on mower. There is a bus stop just down the road and lots to see and do around the area. If you have dogs there is a circular walk just along the lane from the site and also the Dawlish country park just off the main road. Lots of dog friendly pubs and tea rooms in the area, can recommend The Ley Inn in Kenn, The Anchor in Cockwood, Daisy's Tea rooms in Dawlish...very yummy cream tea ! Enjoy your stay..we did.
