  • "My husband and I stayed at Kingfisher Lodge for our anniversary and we were not disappointed."

    The Lodge is located on a working farm with 2 other lodges around the lake but was peaceful. The owners were lovely and really helpful. We took a walk to Dobbies nursery which had lots of variety and the on to the Friendly Inn. The food, staff and locals were all very friendly also. The Lodge was clean, and comfy and very private. The hot tub was clean and easy to heat up, the only thing I would say is that Willow Lodge across the lake had a clear view and would have been nice if there was a privacy screen or something. There is a fantastic patio section which is under cover and we were able to sit out there on the first evening while it was raining and not get wet at all. We highly recommend this place and we will be definitely returning next year.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the Kingfisher cabin, it was very tranquil and cosy."

    The owners were easy to contact if we required any help during our stay. The only small additions we could think of were a peeler/masher for the kitchen and advisement on what the owners would like us to do with the recycling/bins. I have already recommended Manor Farm cabins to friends and family as we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Excellent Sherherd hut nice size we loved the property, everything you could need is there and comfortable."

    You do need transport lots of walking available but the nearest pub is 5mile round walk to Frankton which is along the cycle track, so a fair walk.

  • "Beautiful cabin and scenery, we had a fantastic stay and had everything we needed."

    Will definitely be recommending to friends and family! Improvements? some outdoor lighting by the hot tub would be great especially during the winter months since it gets so dark so quickly. And potentially trimming down some of the reeds so the lake can be seen when sitting down outside... however none of this is needed just me and my partner being picky

  • "Brilliant little getaway - Kingfisher is so secluded and peaceful."

    The cabin itself is modern but also very cosy and well equipped! The hosts respect your privacy but are also there at the drop of a text if you require anything. Couldn’t recommend this place enough and we will definitely be back!

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Kingfisher cabin!"

    Set in a peaceful area and beautiful surroundings, we really enjoyed taking in all nature had to offer. Kingfisher itself was modern, spacious and clean. Every effort had made to ensure our stay would be comfortable and welcoming. The hot tub was amazing to sit in and watch the sun go down. The hosts are fantastic, letting you enjoy your stay but still available if you have any queries! I was lucky enough to chat with Elinor about the local area and conservation of the land. Anything I would change? Maybe a more robust bin in the kitchen as the flies definitely like to come in from outside. But honestly, that’s just a minor point. We loved our stay and we will come back!

    I booked it for our anniversary. The property overlooks the pond in which you can observe ducks, swan's and various other birds. Set in a very peaceful, beautiful and tranquil surroundings. The property was clean and tidy with all of the kitchen facilities included. The owners left free range eggs and their own honey made on the farm. A lovely extra touch.

  • "The Kingfisher was in a great location by the lake with a lovely view through the French doors."

    We used the hot tub which was a lovely touch. Our plan was to use Kingfisher as a base to do plenty of walking. It was great for that as we didn’t use the car all week With various walks of interest.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we've put visitor books in the cabins, it's a great idea! Property Owner

  • "We absolutely loved staying here, it was so quiet and right in the middle of nature."

    There were coots, moorhens, swans and geese all wandering/swimming past with their chicks, and bluetits in and out of their nest on the veranda. I even opened the curtains one morning to a green woodpecker pecking around on the grass. Nel and Will were also fantastic and very helpful hosts. The cabin was pretty well equipped with the only improvement we woud recommend being somewhere to hang towels next to the hot tub.

    Hi I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay - thank you for the suggestion, brilliant idea - we've put hooks by all the hot tubs for towels. Property Owner
