About this location

The Cambridgeshire region

Shizuka & Todd, owner/manager of River Lark Lodge, welcome you to come visit Isleham and the surrounding area. You are in for a wonderful treat.

River Lark Lodge, with its unrivalled views, is set on the lake and moving river in Isleham Marina. The Marina is host to both boats and lodges, all surrounded by beautiful East Anglian fenland.

Without having to travel far you can see and enjoy a wide variety of wildlife. On the Isleham Wash you are likely to see rare birdlife and even otters. There are nature reserves in pretty much every direction and of course you are only a short drive away from forest land to enjoy.

The National Trust have an amazing project happening at Wicken Fen, 20 min drive form your Lodge, where the National Trust are slowly restoring miles of fenland to its original habitat.

Geographically you will be in a perfect spot to enjoy the amenities of several cities and towns. With easy road access to Ely, Newmarket, Cambridge and Bury St. Edmunds you can get to see a lot of the area during your stay.

The Lodge owners, Shizuka and Todd, are local to the area and Marina. If you have any special requirements or would like any information before or during your stay; do not hesitate to contact them.
