Is Bedding Included?
Your tents will be set up with cosy bedding on all the beds ready for your arrival. In the log cabins we also provide towels.
What Are The Kitchen/Cooking Facilities?
The kitchen barn and covered picnic area has plenty of room for guests to store items and cook during their stay. There is a large fridge/freezer, microwave, kettles, toasters, sink, all pots/pans/utensils/crockery/cutlery and mugs are provided per tent for your own use and there are two 4-ring gas hob cooking areas.
Please note there is no Oven provided. In addition to the kitchen facilities, each tent has it’s own BBQ and utensils for your camp cooking needs. We do not supply charcoal so you will need to bring some with you, or grab some from the village store nearby which has a plentiful supply of BBQ lighting supplies.
What Are The Toilet And Shower Facilities?
Kingfisher Lakes has luxury warm and dry washrooms on site , all with proper flushing toilets, basins and hot water. Toilet roll, sanitary disposal bags, hand wash and paper towels are all provided.
Where Do I Park?
Our car park is on site next to the wash block, so your car won’t be too far away from your tent. We ask guests to keep the entrance gate closed as they come and go from the site to ensure more security for all residents. We also have CCTV cameras on the entrance and car park area.
How Far Is It To Get Some Food/Drink?
There is a village store and also a Costcutter (open from 7am-8pm) in Brandesburton village. Tesco superstores are located in Beverley, Bridlington and Hornsea, all about 20 minutes away. There is a fantastic bistro on the edge of Brandesburton village open all day called Bert’s for brunch, lunch and dinner. The village also boasts a deli, a fish & chip shop, a Chinese restaurant & takeaway, as well as two pubs serving large portions of pub-grub.
It is also possible to get a Supermarket delivery to arrive at the campsite for your stay, please contact us to arrange delivery address.
Is There Phone/WIFI Signal?
You should be able to get a 4G phone signal all around the site no problem and we also have limited wifi on site near the main car park area. We suggest you download any movies or podcasts to your device before your arrival.
Can I Bring My Dog?
No, we are sorry but we cannot accept dogs or any other pets on site.
Can I Fish on the Lakes during my Stay?
Yes, if you have your own equipment and Rod Licence for freshwater fishing in England & Wales. The species we know of inhabiting the lakes are: Perch, Tench, Rudd, Roach, Bream, Carp and Pike.
Can I bring my own Paddleboard?
Sorry but we cannot permit the use of paddleboards or any other vessels on our lakes due to safety and insurance restrictions. You can of course choose to hire our 2-3 seater sit on top kayaks for the duration of your stay (£45 for a weekend).
Can I Swim in the Lakes?
Sorry but we cannot permit swimming in the lakes (even for experienced open-water swimmers) due to the nature of the extremely deep water (up to 60ft in parts!) and the fact there are numerous fallen trees just under the surface. To enjoy the water you must stay on the kayaks at all times!
What Time Is Check-In/ Check-Out?
On your arrival day, you are welcome anytime from 4pm. Our small but dedicated family team work really hard preparing all the accommodation and grounds on changeover days to have everything perfect for your arrival so please don’t rush us! If you are in the area beforehand we recommend a visit to Bert’s in nearby Dacre Lakeside Park; for fabulous food & drink at their lakeside bistro, as well as a play area, adventure golf and foot golf! There is also a larger playground in Brandesburton village.
On your leaving day, I’m afraid we will have to wave you off by 10am.
Unfortunately we are unable to allow any visitors due to the small peaceful nature of our site and facilities, so if you are arranging to meet family or friends during your stay, please do so off site.
