Have a well earned rest in the heart of nature
The Swan £145 per night minimum 2 nights
The Kingfisher – £145 per night, minimum 2 night booking.
‘Kingfisher’ is our first glamping cabin, built in 2017 with very high standards of insulation for all year round comfort, mains electricity and on-suite bathroom with walk in shower.
Kingfisher sleeps two adults in romantic comfort with stunning lake views and amazing sunsets within our 50 acre nature reserve. Up to two children can be accommodated but please call us first if you would like to bring children before booking as the cabin is primarily set up for just two adults.
If you are looking for a glamping cabin like no other, then this is for you. Our idea was to provide not only something for nature lovers seeking that special glamping experience but also for those of us less mobile, or recovering from illness that need to connect to nature for healing. In the cabin you will find a full range of features up to wheelchair standards and a dedicated parking bay. This bright spacious glamping cabin is purpose built to our own designs and specifications and not constrained by a shepherds hut chassis.
‘Kingfisher’ is set overlooking our lake and you are free to roam around our 1.5 mile long nature reserve walk and other meandering walks to find our stone circle and cafe and shop. Check out the events page too to see if there is anything on during your stay!
Our location near the M2 motorway makes this an ideal stopover for visitors to London or Europe as well as for bird watching, cycling and walking the area. RSPB Cliffe Pools is at the end of the road and nearby historic Rochester just a few miles away.
For those who want to engage with the great outdoors, sit outside on the veranda for meals or watch the star filled skies with wildlife all around.
Fully functioning kitchenette with microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge, plus hot water and electric heater for all year round comfort. Don’t forget the zip-link divan beds specially made to a lower than normal height for ease of sitting on with pattern coordinated sheets and duvet. Two outside chairs are provided and breakfast table and folded padded chairs for greater comfort. Inside, there is a seating area with two armchairs and the beds are a big favourite for resting on or reading on whilst looking at the view.
