“10/10”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My family and I stayed for a long weekend recently and had a wonderful time.

The weather wasn't great, however the accommodation and location are wonderful.

The lodge is situated in a private wooded area amongst wildlife (including deer) and it was pure bliss.

We used the lodge, primarily as a base, as my mother in law had never been to Dorset, but the site itself had good amenities if you didn't want to go too far.

All in all, my family and I would definitely return to the 'Kingfisher' should we visit Dorset again. Can't rate it highly enough - 10/10.

“Good location.”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We were very pleased with our stay. The lodge is situated in an ideal location on this site and it was very spacious, clean and well equipped for all our needs. Would certainly consider renting this lodge in the future. Good communication with the owner during the booking process. Hopefully we will return next year.

“Truly a home from home”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

First of all pam was a great help when making the booking. A pleasure to speak to on the phone and very quick to respond to emails. The lodge was excellent in a lovely quite area, was lovely listening to the birds in the morning while having coffee on the decking( when the weather allowed us). It had everything you would need.we made use of the washer/dryer. It was lovely and clean and so comfortable that we wouldn't of minded staying longer. We didn't really use the amiaties on the park much. We had drinks a couple of time at the bar ate once in the restaurant (wasn't to impressed with the food). We did however really liked seeing the local wildlife on the site as we walked round. Ducks, rabbits. Deer. We had a walk round the nature trail and saw another three deer just in the trees which was a treat to see. We got out and about every day . Pool. Wimborne minister, west bay, longleat(we really enjoyed that) swanage, Lyme Regis and of course Weymouth. I would not hesitate in recommending this lodge to anyone and we would definitely stay again.

“Fantastic Lodge and Park”
Reviewed 7 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Pam made our stay a pleasure from the start of our booking until the end of our stay and even popped in to see us when we were there. The lodge was excellent, all mod cons and a real home from home. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfy which is unusual when you're away. We took our daughter and grandkids who had a fantastic time, lots to do on the park and surrounding. We will definitely be going back. Word of advice we had no mobile connection at all in the lodge so if you don't have O2 then might be worth getting a pay as you go sim as they seem to be the only provider that you can get reception with.
