Based on a farm and set between two large lakes, there’s no special prize for guessing how this glamping site got its name. Located just off a quiet country lane and surrounded by mature willow trees, its luxury log cabins, yurts and safari lodges provide as peaceful a spot as you could wish for, and are a haven for wildlife, with herons and the odd kingfisher appearing regularly at the water's edge. Dragonflies abound, deer roam nearby, and the numerous country walks you can do from here make this a rural retreat par excellence.

The stars of the show at Kingfisher Lakes are the three beautiful lakeside cabins, all fully equipped with en-suite facilities, kitchens and wood-fired hot tubs. Two of the cabins, Sunset Lodge and Willow Lodge, are perfect for couples with a king-sized double bed and spacious lakeside balconies for romantic evenings under the stars. The larger Evergreen Lodge sleeps 2–6 and is ideal for families or small groups. Inside the cabin you'll find a king-sized double, bunk bedroom and there's space on a sofa bed for two more. In the large open plan living area there's a full kitchen, proper dining table and french doors that lead out onto a secluded deck with lake views.

Beyond the cabins, by a second lake, further glamping accommodation includes half a dozen safari lodges and yurts, complete with proper beds, wood-burning stoves, interior lighting and BBQ. Sleeping between 2 and 10 people, there's something for everyone and each has access to a covered cooking area and a central, wooden lodge where the toilets, showers and washing-up area are found.

The area is popular with walkers – paths lead directly from the site entrance – and deer are often spotted in the neighbouring fields. But it's the lakes that set this place apart, with lots of opportunities for kayaking. You can hire two-person kayaks for a paddle on the waters, while further afield it's just a 15-minute drive to the coast, where popular beaches are matched by stunning cliff-top walking routes, notably at Bempton, Sewerby and Flamborough.
