“Get away from it all ....”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in July 2018

Just back from a short break at Lily Pond Lodge. A real get away from it all experience, with wildlife to watch. The lodge is clean and comfortable and the hot tub is an added bonus to relax in. It's a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. Debbie left a welcome basket which was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend and hope for a return visit!

“Perfect 10th wedding anniversary.”
Reviewed June 7, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

What an absolutely beautiful place. Wish we had found lily pond lodge sooner and we will definitely be back. So peaceful sitting on the balcony watching all the wildlife and chilling in the hot tub every evening. Debbie makes the lodge absolutely perfect with all the little finishing touches including a beautiful basket of goodies on arrival. This place oozes romance and is a must for people who want to get away from life’s stresses and strains. We had perfect weather also and spent long sunny afternoons on the balcony. The bbq was and excellent addition and we used this daily. Can not fault a single thing. We want to be back already.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed May 29, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The lodge is absolutely perfect! Me and my husband were looking for a romantic relaxing break away for my birthday and this is exactly what we got. It's situation a couple of miles out from the main road so when sitting on the veranda overlooking the lily pond all you hear is the birds tweeting, bees buzzing and the sounds of water running in the stream.

The lodge is quite compact but has everything you would need. Comfortable bed with clean good quality bedding, a small kitchen area with all the crockery and cutlery you need. There is a BBQ outside, however we had a small disposable one with us so cannot comment on that.

The hot tub is fabulous and it was used each day of our 3 day stay! Perfect to relax in the early evening after a long day out walking.

Lovely little welcome basket with some essentials and couple of treats was a great added extra. We left feeling more relaxed than we had been in a long time. When work and living in a busy city get too much I am sure we'll be back.

“Absolutely divine stay wish we could go back already!”
Reviewed May 22, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

There are not enough words to express how gorgeous our stay in Lilly Pond Lodge was! From the moment we arrived we felt immediately at home, if not even better because the location and the area are so tranquil and peaceful. It is like something out of a dream! Our neighbors were three gorgeous fluffy cows who were very friendly!
Debbie could not have done more for us and we loved meeting Molly dog and look forward when we return to meeting the new puppy!
The hot tub was an absolute dream and easy enough to work!
We went away to celebrate our anniversary and we wanted a secluded cabin off with beaten track ideally with a hot tub and Lilly Pond Lodge ticked every box and more!
We look forward to booking and coming back as soon as possible! Thanks again to Debbie!

“A quiet and blissful retreat.”
Reviewed April 13, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We booked this as a Easter escape from the hubbub of work and life demands. It has been a demanding time recently and this was the perfect antidote! Debbie greeted us on arrival and made us feel welcome, briefly pointing out the necessary and supplying a delicious welcome basket - all our main immediate needs were covered, tea, coffee, bread and muesli, milk etc. Our main priority was that of Daisy, our springer-spaniel, who was made to feel very welcome. Keeping her in the direct vicinity and away from the lane and grazing sheep was easy as the location was secure - she did however, watch enviously the working collies (she has aspirations) - one collie always sat with the farmer on the quad-bike and the other chasing the bike with great joy!

As with other reviews the hot-tub was amazing, making this a unique experience, and one we enjoyed under the stars each evening.

Hi, sorry for the delay in replying to your review! I'm so thrilled you all had a great time. My dog always looks envious when the sheep dogs go by, but then if she does come face to face with sheep being moved up and down the lane, she doesn't know what to do :-). You are all more than welcome to come back and I hope to see you again.

“Amazing”
Reviewed April 2, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Had such a lovely time at the lilypond lodge, if you ever need a break from the busy everyday life then definitely come here! It was so quiet and peaceful, the scenery was gorgeous and the wildlife was incredible. We were quiet happy to sit with a cuppa on the balcony and just watch the world go by. The lodge itself was beautiful and spotlessly clean and the welcome hamper that was left for us was just the cherry on top. Such a peaceful and tranquil place to stay.
