“GREAT!!!”

This was the second time we have stayed in Kingfisher Retreat and found it to be so modern, clean and comfortable, a real home from home with everything you could wish for. The lodge is in a great location on the park, private and peaceful. The park itself is great, especially for those who like fishing and for families with young children. The park is in a great location for days out, we went to the Swannery at Swanage, Bournemouth, Dorchester, and several other places. The weather was also great, which is always a bonus! Will definitely be back!

Nicely decorated lodge in a private cul de sac which made it very quiet. Everything you could want in the lodge and we had a very pleasant week-end there. Excellent.

“A home from home”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed for 4 nights at the beginning of the Easter holidays. Pam could not have been more helpful through out the booking process, dealing with my relentless queries swiftly. The lodge itself was immaculate, I could not find one fault with it. I went prepared with everything but the kitchen sink but there was absolutly everything there that we could have needed - every kitchen utensil a masterchef could require, plastic plates etc for the children, alarm clock, board games. The lodge was in a very peaceful settting via a gated entrance. I would not hesitate in coming and staying here again or recommending it to friends.

Just returned from week at Kingfisher Retreat. Have stayed several times at Warmwell but accommodation far superior than booking through Parkdean. Pleasure dealing with Pam with regards to the booking. Plenty for the kids to do even at this time of the year on the site and around and about. Staff very good from entertainment team to ski instructors. Will recommend to friends should they be looking for an excellent lodge in a great location.

Myself and my boyfriend recently stayed at King Fisher Retreat and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The lodge had everything we needed and more, very clean and well presented. Pam you have something really special there and it was lovely to have experienced what you have worked so hard for. Also just wanted to say Pam was a great help throughout the whole booking and stay there, she even went to the trouble of sending me some things back I had left behind which I really appreciated. Will definitely recommend and stay again in the future. Zoe Tomkins and Wayne Boswell

“Perfect”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were fortunate enough to book both of Pam's lodges (Retreat & Haven) for Christmas.
Having booked the Retreat before we knew how lovely it was as it is really home from home with everything you could possibly need. However it was the first time we had booked The Haven and were really blown away of how lovely it really was as I believe the pictures do not do it justice....Both of these lodges are designed to a very high standard which we just love and being lodge experts so to speak these are by far the best lodges we have stayed in. As for Pam she has to be a one off as she very kindly decorated both lodges and when we opened the doors it was so welcoming , warm and cosy and we were all really sad to leave. I feel Pam always goes that extra mile for you as nothing is too much trouble....Thank you Pam and the best compliment I can really give rather that just words is that we have planned to go back not just once but twice this year already!!!!!
