Mr T Glass - Stayed with partner, Oct 2023

Had a 4 night stay last week in kingfisher Lodge. Surrounding area is very peaceful ,clean and tidy .we only fished on our platform and further around snake lake .Caught a lot of fish although no double figures .we could have gone on the other lakes but we were happy... Had a 4 night stay last week in kingfisher Lodge. Surrounding area is very peaceful ,clean and tidy .we only fished on our platform and further around snake lake .Caught a lot of fish although no double figures .we could have gone on the other lakes but we were happy just to do this .lodge was clean but we couldn't find can opener and connect to WiFi..these were no problem to us so we didn't inform the owners .Will return next year if possible as this was one of the best places we have stayed in combining both of our loves of fishing and hot tubing .

"Loved the tranquility"

Mrs F Lloyd - Stayed with family, Aug 2023

We had a shepherds hut on the lake with hot tub Positives: everything was very clean, good shower (also spotless), hot tub was fab, lovely view over the lake, peace and quiet, aircon was welcome! Staff helpful. Had some good days out to Ely and Cambridge- recommend... We had a shepherds hut on the lake with hot tub Positives: everything was very clean, good shower (also spotless), hot tub was fab, lovely view over the lake, peace and quiet, aircon was welcome! Staff helpful. Had some good days out to Ely and Cambridge- recommend Butch Annie’s steak restaurant in Cambridge. Negatives: bed v narrow for 2 people at 4ft wide, insect screens would be useful on the windows as you can’t keep them open due to midges, small leak under bathroom sink so we moved hairdryer to a different cupboard, v fiddly blinds. Overall we had a lovely relaxing stay - thank you!

"Lovely cozy with a great view"

Mr B Wylde - Stayed with family, Aug 2023

My wife really enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the views, we were very impressed with the details even down to the towel shapped swans on the bed in our arrival. Wanted a different experience and we got just that it was somthing we would like to share at head fen again...

"Super relaxing"

Miss S Friedheim - Stayed with partner, Jul 2023

The shepards hut was a lovely place to stay, we noted that there were a couple of items that the shepards hut could do with having such as a cheese grater and more than two of each pieces of cutlery. We enjoyed sitting out on our private decking watching the birds... The shepards hut was a lovely place to stay, we noted that there were a couple of items that the shepards hut could do with having such as a cheese grater and more than two of each pieces of cutlery. We enjoyed sitting out on our private decking watching the birds around the river. The hut itself was modern and cosy. Another thing we noted was that although the blinds in the shepards hut looked nice, they weren’t at all practical and due to them being stuck on rather than screwed on, we found that two of the blinds were coming off the window. We had a lovely stay and will certainly be going back.

"Lovely scenic place, a couple of suggestions though.."

Miss G Plumb - Stayed with partner, Jun 2023

We stayed in Kingfisher hut over Christmas and loved it so much we decided to come back during summer. The huts are lovely and right on Snake Lake which is small but feels very intimate and peaceful and like you almost have the lake to yourself. You’re allowed to fish... We stayed in Kingfisher hut over Christmas and loved it so much we decided to come back during summer. The huts are lovely and right on Snake Lake which is small but feels very intimate and peaceful and like you almost have the lake to yourself. You’re allowed to fish for a fee and can use their BBQ free of charge which was great. The hot tub was very clean both times we stayed and we loved having to ourselves. The huts have mostly everything you need but as their self catered there are some things you would hope would be provided which aren’t, such as enough tea and coffee. There were 2 of us staying for 2 nights but we were only given 1 teabag and 1 coffee sachet each. There were also not enough sugar sachets. There was also no kitchen roll A couple of annoying things I feel could be improved: the blinds! the blinds are paper and take about 10 minutes per (5) windows to fold. A lamp would also be nice for night time.

"Lovely relaxing break"

Mrs B Ryde - Stayed with partner, Apr 2023

We had a great stay. Relaxing, a lovely lodge. The hot tub was lovely but it didn't reach temperature on the first night. After that it was great.. We didn't have a firepit, there was s small bbq and the logs we had bought we could use on the inside log burner.... We had a great stay. Relaxing, a lovely lodge. The hot tub was lovely but it didn't reach temperature on the first night. After that it was great.. We didn't have a firepit, there was s small bbq and the logs we had bought we could use on the inside log burner. Cleanliness was good and there was no fridge just a wine cooler which was ok. Shops and amenities were a 15 minute drive away as the location is quite remote which was fine for us as we had taken everything we needed as suggested.

"Kingfisher shepherds hut"

Mr M Howe - Stayed with friends, Feb 2023

There was nowhere to put your clothes but later we discovered a huge storage space under the bed which we weren’t told about. One small frying pan and a small saucepan we’re not really ample as I had a couple of meals planned so I had to be creative. Check in at four and check out at half nine I thought was a bit tight. However I knew that before we came. Staff were very friendly and courteous and they were the best part of the stay, full marks to them. The wine cooler was an odd choice for a fridge we thought but nevertheless I got our stuff in it albeit at a jaunty angle. The sprung bed wasn’t the best. Overall pretty good but we have stayed in better shepherds huts.

"We stayed in the kingfisher cabin and it was absolutely amazing."

L Kinde - Stayed with partner, Sep 2022

We had a lovely time and it was very peaceful and relaxing. We stayed and fished from the kingfisher cabin, and generously they left a landing Matt and net for us to use. There were some specimen fish in the lakes and some beautiful wildlife we saw such as owls ,... We had a lovely time and it was very peaceful and relaxing. We stayed and fished from the kingfisher cabin, and generously they left a landing Matt and net for us to use. There were some specimen fish in the lakes and some beautiful wildlife we saw such as owls , kingfishers and herons. We will definitely be back , we were able to order food one evening and had some lovely walks over the fields. Would defiantly recommend!

"Improvement"

Mr I Bardi - Stayed with partner, Sep 2022

We was satisfied with everything. Ours opinion is that the ruf of the porch is covered will give a nice filling to relax and have a bath in the hot tub when it's raining.

"Peaceful and a great place to recharge your batteries."

Mrs B Shaw - Stayed with partner, Aug 2022

On arrival the staff were informative and attentive. We stayed in kingfisher, which was extremely clean and well equipped for a short stay. My only criticism is I would prefer a fridge not a wine cooler. Air con was great addition. My husband really enjoyed his fishing... On arrival the staff were informative and attentive.

My husband really enjoyed his fishing and the hot tub was awesome. We will definitely be returning, already looking at slightly bigger accommodation.
