Suites

At the Kingfisher we have three suites, all located in the historic part of the building. They are quirky, unique, and we love them! Stay in a room that you won’t find anywhere else…

The Holt

The Holt is the first of our special suites – a place where otter’s sleep, this is located in the oldest part of the house, so expect wonky floors, oodles of character and a few creaks in the night! Oh, and an antique four poster bed – heaven!

Dragonfly

Dragonfly is a spacious room with a beautiful riverside view. Add to this a feature fireplace, walk in double shower and king sized bed – all the ingredients needed for the best night away.

The Kingfisher Suite

The Kingfisher Suite is the most impressive room in the house. Think the penthouse. Expect original mullion windows, a period fireplace, unique features aplenty and a view of the riverside terrace. For additional romance and relaxation, slip into the roll top bath with a bottle of Champagne for the ultimate getaway.

Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise

Hi, we’re The Kingfisher!

We were formerly known as The Barns Hotel but after some extensive flood damage, we closed and re-opened as The Kingfisher pub with rooms.

We’re home to 49 bedrooms and The Tithe Barn, a wedding and events venue.

Situated along the River Great Ouse, we have the best riverside terrace in town and superb food to match. 

Did we mention we’re dog-friendly too?!

See you soon 🫶
