The Owner Says

In celebration of the river’s resident heron, our premium option here at Constable Park is Heron Lodge. Boasting stunning views from it’s feature window and private deck area, it mirrors the style of Constable Cafe with a set apart pitched roof, continuing the unique style of the park.

Relax in the open-plan living space, complete with fully equipped kitchen; or watch the sunset from the private deck whilst listening to the birds on the RSPB reserve. There is a BBQ for you to use, as well as outside seating for you to dine al fresco! As well as the stunning views, Heron Lodge features a striking bathroom with floor to ceiling tiles and a large shower suitable for disabled access. There is also an ample, open plan hallway with a bunkbed and a king-sized bed in the bedroom ensuring you really can relax in your surroundings.

Features & Facilities

There are two on-site toilet and shower blocks that have been recently built, as well as outdoor washing up facilities. The fire-pit in the centre of the glamping area is for all to enjoy.

Glamping

Our glamping pitches surround the six-metre wide sunken fire pit which gives the site a homely village feel. Each glamping pitch has it’s own outdoor seating with our very own Constable Park deckchairs! Electric blankets can be available and there is a charcoal BBQ with a gas burner hob shared between 2 tents. A cool box will also be provided along with all the essentials.

Our large Touareg tents have the feel of a tepee, but are a practical square design ideal for a family of 4 or 5. They are each equipped with a wood burning stove and their own gas BBQ, as well as a cool box and other essentials. The Touareg tents are on the river frontage with amazing views!


Cabins

Moorhen and Goose are upcycled, extra wide, steel containers. Each of these timber clad cabins are suitable for year round use with central heating, en-suite bathrooms with generous showers and a lounge space with simple “scandi” style sofas. All our cabins have a kitchenette with a two gas burner, fridge and crockery for a family of 4. You will find everything you need to do breakfast, a simple lunch and a BBQ outside in the evening.
