We got in to our lodge in September, and couldn't be happier, the lodge and the plot are amazing, the area is so tranquil with the fields and hills to the front and the river to the rear, it simply is sublime.

As soon as we cross the bridge and drive down to our lodge we instantly feel more relaxed. The views are great, love the spring with the lambs in the fields. Our park team is excellent.

We have owned static caravans for almost 50 years and have been at Kingfisher for approximately 13 years - we love the site, it is quiet and well cared for. We spend almost every weekend there as well as many odd weeks - it is very relaxing.
