Aged oak, combined with modern styling, are design keynotes of this top-of-the-range lodge stacked with luxury features and with a feeling of modern opulence
The well-established Kingfisher luxury lodge got a major makeover for 2021, with a new interior design, plus different cladding options so that you can choose an exterior look to make sure your Kingfisher blends in with its park setting.
The Kingfisher is available in seven standard sizes, all 20ft wide, ranging in length from 36ft to 50ft. Three have utility rooms and three have three bedrooms. The model we review here is a 42ft version, with two bedrooms and a utility room.
There’s a quiet sophistication and modern opulence about the Kingfisher, with muted, natural tones and subtle patterns. There is is a combined media unit and fire in the lounge. A dark bronze mirror-framed ‘log burner’ electric fire is set into a white-panelled unit. It’s stunning! Four mains sockets and four USB ports are within a recess below the fire, and television connections are above.
There’s a super spacious feel about the Kingfisher. It’s easy to envisage family conviviality here; people watching television and sipping sundowners, people cooking, and the table laid for dinner... There’s space for everyone and, the more time we spent in this lovely living area, the more we came to appreciate just how separate the lounge, dining and kitchen areas feel from one another. If you like space, you will like the Kingfisher.
The kitchen is an eye-catching element of this spacious lodge, too. It’s a classic U-shape – but with a twist. An angled section at one side forms a soft distinction between the kitchen and the dining area and extends the already ample working surface.
This is an extremely practical kitchen, with eight mains sockets. So, wherever you want to use a toaster, kettle, food mixer and more, you can. And there’s an unusual appliance that will delight keen cooks: a double oven unit, with one above the other, enabling you to cook dishes at different temperatures.
Even the tap is worthy of comment. It’s a ‘rinser tap’, with a faucet that you can unclip from its high-arched, coiled mount and move around to rinse items on the draining board or in the sink. This is just one more aspect of the Kingfisher that will impress buyers with its individuality, practicality and abundance of space.
It’s not just the day area that is exceptionally spacious. The main bedroom is surely one of the largest in any leisure lodge. In fact, it’s more than a bedroom. Two part-walls form a separation between the bed area and the dressing area that’s almost as large as the bed zone. Two double wardrobes and a large dressing table with six drawers amply look after your storage needs. An enormous mirror above the dressing table gives you a head-to-toe view to check your outfit before you venture outside.
Walk through the dressing area and you are in another impressively spacious area – the shower room. This has both a rainfall head and a directional rose. Opposite, the mirror above the washbasin has a frame of bright light set within the glass. A tall towel warmer and extractor fan complete the high spec of this charmingly opulent preening room.
