Really nice cottage. Everything you need is there. The house is very private. We loved the porch on the fish pond. Both Exmoor and the beaches are nearby by car. Would definitely recommend this house.

We had a lovely week at Kingfisher. We were greeted by Shirley and her son John on our arrival, who were so friendly and welcoming. The milk, wine, after eight mints and their own delicious smoked salmon provided were a very thoughtful touch. Kingfisher was as lovely as it looked in the photos. So cosy and comfortable with everything we needed. TheRead more bed was extremely comfy and what with that and the peace and tranquility, we slept so well. We would highly recommend Kingfisher to others. Hide

We had another wonderful holiday at the Kingfisher. The Fisheries is a wonderful place to stay, surrounded by nature, I even saw the resident Kingfisher on my last morning. The owners are really lovely people, they always make sure you have a wonderful time whilst staying. Plenty of places to visit in the local area and Barnstaple is a really nice Read moretown for shopping. The lodge is well equipped, clean and tidy.

We were made very welcome and had the freedom which we were seeking. The lake is a superb place for a gentle walk in beautiful surroundings. The "cottage", really a Scandinavian style single room building, is spacious, well furnished and equipped and beautifully decorated. This is a property and location that you must not miss.
