About the home
Kingfisher Haven (formerly known as 144 Kingfisher Lakes) has it's own enclosed deck area, accessed from the lounge/diner via patio doors, for those warm summer days and nights. On the deck there is a glass topped table, parasol and six chairs, new in 2012. There is a brand new colour TV/DVD player in each of the 3 bedrooms as well as in the comfortable lounge, which also has a DVD player. There is an en-suite shower room to the main bedroom, which has a kingsize bed, in addition to the family bathroom. The third bedroom (which is not yet pictured) is similar, but a little smaller, to the second bedroom, and twin-bedded.
The lodge has vaulted ceilings throughout, with Velux windows to the lounge and kitchen, and full length windows/patio doors to the lounge/dining area, making it very light and spacious. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need, including an American style fridge freezer with water dispenser and ice maker/dispenser, washer/dryer and dishwasher.

The West Country / Dorset region
This area of Dorset is famous of course for the Tolpuddle Martyrs - why not visit the Tolpuddle Museum where you can learn the story surrounding the Martyrs; it is also well known as being 'Hardy Country', and a visit to Hardy's monument is also worth making. Or why not follow the coastal path from the Smugglers Inn at Osmington, along towards Ringstead, then back to the Smugglers for a well-earned drink!
There are some very good eating places in the local area, The Smugglers Inn does good food and has fantastic views, The Countryman Inn where you can enjoy a carvery or one of many other dishes which are always available, the Red Lion which has a good selection of wonderful dishes for all tastes, the Frampton Arms at Moreton, and for that inevitable cream tea(!) why not try Moreton Tea Rooms which is very close to Warmwell. You can visit Moreton Gardens and plant shop to walk off the damage!
The beautiful market town of Dorchester (6 miles) for it's shops and eating places, museums and cinema, the historic walled market town of Wareham (12 miles) with it's Thursday farmer's market, Weymouth with its beautiful beach and promenade (9 miles) and the vibrant market town of Bridport (22 miles) are all well worth a visit.
The Weymouth / Warmwell area
There is an abundance of places of interest in this area of Dorset, such as Monkey World, Sea Life Park in Weymouth, the Abbotsbury Swannery and Subtropical Gardens, many places along the Jurassic Coast such as Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, and Lulworth Castle. Kingston Maurward Gardens and Animal Park, Bennett's Water Gardens and The Blue Pool are also worth a visit. There is so much more - too much to mention! There is something for everyone in this area of Dorset.

Have just returned from a fabulous easter break at at Kingfisher Haven, everything from start to finish was top class (apart from the weather!). The lodge itself is modern, spacious and well... more
26 Feb 2013
We arrived at Warmwell Holiday Park (3 adults, 3 children aged 5,4 and 3) and collected keys from reception who were very friendly and helpful, we then found 144 Kingfisher Lakes and couldn't believe how lucky we were! What a beautiful home and had everything we needed! We loved the big American fridge and it was extremely handy to have the 2 bathrooms one having a lovely big bath! Everything was a real treat, even the showers! I could go on and thats just the accommodation!
The locaion is perfect! So peaceful and yes we did see the deers too! There's so much to do on site with the little parks scattered around and the indoor pool and soft play for those rainy days. We also visited Monkey World which is a must and only a short drive away! We didn't even have enough time to use the kids club but managed to catch a bit of the kids disco one evening which the children loved!
A big thank you to Pam who answered all my questions prior to our stay and everything went extremely smoothly! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning!

We could easily have spent the weekend in the lodge and never have left! The lodge had every facility we needed and much, much more. It was lovely and snug in February and the tv's and wifi kept the kids happy. Mum loved the huge kitchen with all the facilities. We had a fabulous time and the weather in February was wonderful so we enjoyed exploring the park and feeding the wildlife. My teenager was thrilled to learn to ski and roller blade and my toddler loved the ski bobs and kids club. The food was good quality in the main area and the whole park was immaculate and well maintained. So good that we booked a return visit straight away!
