"This property really has the wow factor!"

This property really has the wow factor. The house is extremely spacious, beautifully decorated and very clean. The pool room is a nice touch as is the second lounge and TV.
The outside is just as well planned as the inside. Even in October we were able to sit outside on the decking most days due to the shelter of the surrounding trees. The grounds are huge, plenty of space to exercise the dog, play football & cricket. We also used the games room for table tennis and darts. My husband fished most days from the riverside decking and caught a couple of good sized Bream.
It is in a secluded position yet within short distances of many interesting places to visit.
We did most of our grocery shopping in nearby St Neots and had trips out to Cambridge, London, St Albans and the Warner Brothers Harry Potter Museum.
We have stayed in many rental properties both at home and abroad and thought this to be one of the best. I thoroughly recommend this property and we will definitely return.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments about Kingfisher. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back soon!

"Fantastic cottage, Superb grounds for our marquee wedding."

We consider ourselves so fortunate that we were able to have our marquee wedding reception within the grounds of kingfisher cottage. The grounds are absolutely stunning.
Family stayed in the cottage on the first few nights - 4 teenagers absolutely loved playing football outside and also having their 'own room'- the pool table room with their own music! The main room had lots and lots of space for a large part of the family to enjoy our nephews birthday together the night before the wedding.
We spent the remainder of the week actually staying in the cottage ourselves. It was amazing - so much space, so relaxing -eating late breakfast on the veranda, playing football and catch, waving to the occasional boat passing by when down by the river.
There are so many wonderful things to do at the cottage, I could go on and on. Our wedding day was better then we could have hoped, the honeymoon at the cottage was
awesome - if ever a place deserved a 5 star rating then this is it!!!!! Treat yourself to a stay there and you will not be disappointed

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We are so glad that you chose Kingfisher as your wedding venue and that we were able to help make your wedding day and honeymoon special. Come and stay again soon!

The house stands in a wonderfully peaceful location in stunning surroundings, we were a party of four couples and there was masses of room for us all in the lovely house while at the same time feeling very cosy, everyone said what a wonderful property it was and I'm sure we will return for another holiday before too long as it was a welcome oasis of calm in a very busy life.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments and we look forward to welcoming you back for another visit.
