Food & Drink
Two miles away, the Half Moon Inn (01823 680291) is a good choice and makes for a pleasant walk from the campsite. The pub is located in the centre of Clayhidon Parish and offers a stunning view from their beer garden of the Culm Valley as it opens towards Hemyock. They offer a great selection of local food and are particularly famous for their Sunday lunch and Friday evening fish and chips (served between 5:30 and 7:00 p.m). The Holman Clavel (01823 421070) in Culmhead hosts a great range of locally made ales. Sheppy's Cider Farm is located about 10 minutes away with a great farmshop and restaurant. Local takeaways also deliver direct to the site.
My partner, dog an I have just had a fantastic three nights at Kingsmead. We camped our tent on the Bluebell pitch which was truly magical, having electric was a new camping experience which we loved, a fire pit, wood and kiddling was there when we arrived. The site was spotlessly clean and the facilities were the best I have experienced when camping, very clean. The owner was lovely, helped us with ideas of fantastic walks near by and the Half moon Inn was a very nice pub. Thank you Kingsmead we had a very happy relaxing holiday and Maisie loved it 😊
Great secluded campsite with great facilities we had a very chilled and relaxing week We all enjoyed our holiday with the facilities being some of the best the showers are exceptional compared to others
Fantastic week at Kingsmead. The facilities are great and well looked after. The site is beautiful with secluded woodland pitches and pitches out in the open. We had the latter which suited us well with our kids having the freedom to run around and meet the other children starting there. It feels like its miles from anywhere whilst being really easy to get to from the motorway and a short drive to Wellington, a pretty town with everything you could need. The owners and staff are lovely and very helpful, going the extra mile with the kids. Would love to return when our travels take us that way and will highly recommend to others.
This was my first trip anywhere since covid started and I just wanted a few days to chill out and do not very much. Kingsmead was perfect! We had a secluded woodland pitch which had its own picnic bench and firepit. facilities were cleaned regularly, we had lazy walks around the lakes and stocked up on logs for the fire from the very friendly and welcoming owners. On the rare occasion we felt the need to move, it was only a half hour walk to a pub with great views. This was just what I needed
