It’s just breath-taking when you catch a flash of the Kingfishers with their superb bright blue and orange wings, we hope you are one of the lucky ones that spot them. Kingfishers usually hunt from an exposed perch and nest in the banks on the sides of the lakes, or in holes in trees, so keep your eyes peeled. There are also plenty of deer around our fields, your best chance of seeing these enchanting creatures is at dawn or dusk. You may see them drinking at the water’s edge in the morning; although they’re very nervous so it may only be the flash of their white tails you see as they dash off at full pelt.
We’re surrounded by countryside views and areas to roam, there are plenty of bridle path routes crossing the farm and the opportunities for nature spotting are endless.
On the Lake
Kayaking on one of our tranquil lakes and being at duck-eye level fills your brain with happy, relaxing hormones; there’s just nothing better, it’s definitely our favourite family activity when we get chance.
Our 2-seater sturdy inflatable Kayaks are available for hire, this activity is suitable for total beginners and children too. We provide lifejackets which must be worn at all times on the water.
Don’t forget to look out for the magical Kingfishers!
If you are into Fishing (and have your own equipment and Rod Licence) you are more than welcome to fish the waters at Kingfisher Lakes anytime of day or night (providing you are not disturbing any other guests enjoyment of the lakes). Our lakes have a nice, natural stock level, species include: Tench, Perch, Roach, Rudd, Bream, Pike and some rather large, elusive Carp.
