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


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.


Useful Site

We have just returned from a pleasant weeks stay at this site. The site is basic in the old C.L. style but has a lot going for it. According to the weather some difficulty may be experienced leaving as the slope is quite steep, but our mover came to our rescue, however the owner did offer to hitch up her four wheel drive should we have needed it. Turn left out of the site within a couple hundred yards there is a purpose maintained walk around farm land all mowed out and well sign posted, which took us hour half to complete. Lovely for walking the dogs and seeing the butterflies. Turning right and across the main road there is another large park, free car parking and is lovely for dog walkers. Buses seemed to be running everywhere and the stop was not far away. We really enjoyed visiting Dawlish Warren, Dawlish, Teignmouth and Torquay, plus we drove to Powderham Castle shop where you can again park free and walk along the estuary and finally reach the canal. If you want peace and quiet try this site.
