What our customers have to say about Kingsmead
We liked everything so much we decided to stay another week. The owners were very friendly and the whole site was well managed and very clean. The toilet block was very clean and heated 24 hours a day. We would certainly advise people to stay here.
Quiet, peaceful, small site in the middle of woodland. Birds and animals a delight to watch. Being December and trees being bare wasn’t the best time to visit, but think it would be spectacular from Spring onwards, so hoping to return. Facilities were spotless and were warm, day and night. Lovely hot showers. Owners were friendly and helpful, but didn’t impose rules, although there were a few but mainly about open fires. Lots of small towns nearby with small privately run shops, although large supermarkets also. Ideally a car is necessary. Totally relaxing stay. Thank you.
Couldn’t be more impressed! Lovely surroundings, friendly staff, clean facilities.The Bell Tent gives a real secluded feel, yet is close to the amenities (showers, toilets and recycling). You can also park your car close so no lugging supplies and luggage miles. Very well thought out. Perfect if you want to escape reality and enjoy nature without being Ray Mears.Will definitely be returning.
Kingsmead has a really relaxed atmosphere. Pick your own pitch. Help on hand from the owners (our EHU wasn’t long enough and our levellers didn’t quite level for us). Fire pits allowed (for hire or bring your own). Very peaceful site and immaculate facilities, including use of a fridge/freezer. I loved the lack of signal and how unregimented it was on site. The only thing I didn’t like was the pub that was round the corner was closed but the campsite was so nice it wasn’t a problem. I initially thought more showers and toilets might be required BUT I NEVER had to wait in the 3 nights we were there over Easter
What a beautiful escape from London! We had a wonderful stay at Kingsmead Centre Camping and would definitely recommend to others. We hope to stay here again as there’s so much to see in the surrounding wilderness. We had one of the forest pitches which was surrounded with wild flower and near the lake. The staff were friendly and helpful
Booked as a last minute thing we were lucky enough to get two nights from a cancellation. Stayed in the bell tent which is basically a yurt settled in a beautiful woodland. With real attention to detail there is a beautiful double bed, wood burning stove and many tastefully coordinated furnishings. With two lakes and beautiful surroundings I doubt you would find anywhere much more magical and relaxing to come to. There is a fire pit outside and logs provided. The owners are lovely and made our short stay very special. Thank you.
We enjoyed our stay…perfect location…clean NEW toilet/shower/washing up block.Lots of nice touches…quiet…great pub within walking distance…will go back again without a doubt!! ps Fergus really enjoyed his walks in the woods and around the ponds.
A mini break with my five year old and my dog. Wonderful surroundings and very well kept site, can’t fault any of it. We stayed in the Yurt for 3 nights and my daughter thought it was magical! And the bed was far comfier than the hotel we stayed in on the way home! Good location to be away from it with out being to far from places of interest and the local pub served good food and ale, look forward to returning.
Dear Jodie & Tristan, just to say what a lovely time we had staying at your beautiful site, it really is lovely, so natural, we had a walk through the woods and found the lakes, the facilities were spot on too, Lovely hot clean spacious showers, the local pub was just idyllic as well. It really was the perfect place for us to meet. We shall be back
We loved our stay at Kingsmead. Owners are friendly and welcoming as we’re the dogs :) Spotlessly clean facilities, the whole site is very well maintained. The fridge/freezer and local info was great. Lots of little touches made it perfect, stickers to mark food, ash bin with a brush, communal fire and bbq area and essentials in the shop area. Informal pitching so you can choose your own spot. The area around has great walking and it’s not far by car to beaches, shops etc Overall a very pleasant stay. Bring a long electric hook up as the points are spaced out.
We loved the lakes, wooded area and the fact that fire pits were allowed. The showers were also hot and powerful and always clean. Lovely pub that we walked to - it was further than we expected but worth it!
Had such a wonderful time camping at Kingsmead Centre this week.The clean modern facilities were well maintained.Staying here was such a unique experience and it was absolutely perfect.Beautiful views in every direction.Have re-booked another visit already!!
Amazing fantastic beautiful, whether camping or staying in one of the cosy spotless staticsWe cannot recommend highly enough, owners are lovely, loos & showers 5* We cannot wait to return.Stunning setting magical place.❤️
We have just come back from a week of camping. Brilliant site clean toilets and shower block. Very child friendly. As a person who was so anti camping this is my second time back and looking forward to booking my 3rd. The owners are lovely, will do anything they can to help you .We had a movie night with a pizza van which the kids loved.Cannot fault this place! A must for any one who feels unsure if camping is for them.
Great place for an escape. Took two of my grandchildren for a camping break - they fished, made a den in the surrounding woodland and had Smores and didn’t once complain they were missing ‘technology’. I Intend to go back with wife and luxuriate in the Yurt :))
The site is set in beautiful grounds with plenty of space to pitch our tent and not feel on top of other visitors. The quiet and peaceful setting was perfect for a relaxing weekend. We were able to hire a fire pit which was just what we needed. The site was quiet and well kept. The facilities were always clean and well stocked. Free wifi was useful and there really was nothing to complain about. I would highly recommend Kingsmead Centre for a relaxing break both for families or couples.
Just home from our second visit this year, what can we say? Stunning area, spotless loos & showers ( even tho site was full !) owners cannot do enough for you. Peaceful, relaxing, beautiful & plenty of unpolluted clear night sky for star gazing, amazing woodland walks right on site. This is a true gem of a site & we will be returning and telling all our friends too. Love Kingsmead!
Great site great people beautiful surroundings going there with friends this weekend see you soon guys.
We love this place clean tidy quiet and nice people thank you so much.
Stayed here for 8 days with family, The camp site is small but well organised, the shower, toilet and washing up room are the best we have at a camp site, very clean and plenty of space. My husband and kids love the fishing, they caught loads... Highly recommend this campsite, will be going back.
A very nice spacious site, well maintain without being over manicured. The best showers we have ever had in a camp site. Overall a very pleasant 5 days
The yurt was wonderful, so magical, and we all loved it! The bed and the sofa bed were really comfy. The yurt has everything you need and logs are supplied for the log burner during your stay. The toilet block is pretty close by and is lovely and clean. There is also a footpath that runs through the site so you can go for a lovely walk from right on the doorstep. Our boys loved exploring the woodland location. We would definitely come back again.
Just a note to say thank you for our stay in the Lily Pad Bell Tent. It was our first time Glamping it and everything was perfect. Great accommodation in the Bell Tent. Very clean and very quiet. The only noise was the trees, the birds and the sound of others snapping twigs to add to their open fire! Great location, small, well organise site, and worth drive to get here.
We have just returned from a 4 night stay in one of the caravans. We were lucky enough to win a 2 night stay and decided to extend it. Having camped here 2 years ago we were happy to return especially our daughter who was pleased to see pickles the dog. Caravan was clean and tidy on arrival and has everything you, nice touch of having a few essentials provided. Added bonus of staying when the pizza night was on, very yummy pizza. Would definitely recommend Kingsmead and am sure we will be back.
Dear Tristan and Jodie, just a brief note to say how much my son and I have enjoyed staying at your wonderful camping site. You have a truly unique place and I am sure we will be back soon.
This site is wonderful. The facilities are lovely and clean and never so busy we had to queue. The pitches are a good size and level. Cannot wait to stay again!!! Thankyou for a fantastic holiday!!
Thanks for a lovely Weekend......never change a thing, you have perfection! x We look forward to our next stay
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for a wonderful stay over the bank holiday weekend. We were so grateful to have the woodland pitch for our bell tent - the pitch suited us so well, it was such a perfect and relaxing spot. We will definitely be booking again in the future.
