“Peaceful and Romantic: Simply Perfect”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I booked Lily Pond Lodge as a romantic getaway for my partners 40th birthday. We were not disappointed! We arrived pretty late on the Friday and were greeted with a lovely surprise welcome pack and a lovely warm cozy lodge. We loved it immediately!
The hot tub was already on and at temperature so without hesitation we lit the candles and sat in the hot tub with a glass of wine for most of the remainder of the evening Absolute heaven.
Our Saturday was spent walking around the Elan Valley reservoirs and damns (highly recommended) and after 20km's walking to come back and relax in the lodge and hot tub was bliss.
We were looking for seclusion, peace, romance and quality time together. We had it all and have already booked to return in Easter 2017

“Lovely peaceful weekend”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

VIsited Lily Pond Lodge for my birthday. needed to get away from the daily grind of the 9 to 5 and it couldn't have been more peaceful. There was a lovely basket of goodies upon arrival, including homemade bread (which was scrumptious) made by Debbie the lovely owner. The lodge was toastie warm and very comfortable. After spending the days out walking it was lovely to come back and relax in the hot tub whilst looking at the stars. A lovely little find in an idyllic peaceful location.

Glad you were able to unwind and relax, and delighted you enjoyed the bread :-)

We have had some lovely clear nights recently which has made star gazing a real bonus, hope it continues for the super moon and the shooting stars that we are due to have over the coming days.

Hope to see you again in the future.

“A wonderful getaway”
Reviewed 23 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We spent a wonderful couple of weeks at the Lily Pond Lodge. Very relaxing and beautiful, the cottage had everything we needed and Debbie was very welcoming and helpful. The hot tub was blissful, the terrace lovely to sit on and even the weather remained mostly lovely and sunny! A great getaway, for just cosying up or using as a base for exploring the countryside.

“Perfect relaxing getaway location”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in June 2015

This is a fully equiped lodge set in the most beautiful, tranquil location. You have absolutely everything you could need for a 'get away from it all' holiday, complete with a stunning setting and a fabulous view. It is cosy and comfortable so we slept very well, although that may have something to do with the hilly walks and beautifully clear, fresh air we had. We enjoyed having the balcony too which overlooks Lily Pond with its abundance of wildlife. We loved our stay in every way and now it has a hot tub we shall be planning and looking forward to our next visit.

Yes, the hot tub seems to be a big hit with all that stay. It has proved to be a wonderful addition to the lodge, making it all the more special and romantic.

We look forward to seeing you again in the future.

“Simply Heaven”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Back today unfortunately from a wonderful weekend at Lily Pond Lodge which has been an absolute gem of a find for us. Lily Pond Lodge is surrounded by wonderful scenery, so peaceful and completely tucked away from everyday life making our weekend so relaxing. We arrived late afternoon as we'd been exploring the area first and a stunning welcome basket was waiting for us with warm freshly baked bread, cookies, welsh cakes , grapes, Welsh butter etc also fresh flowers. Debbie the owner called to see us to introduce herself and she is lovely, very friendly also her husband who brought us a bottle of bubbly, a little extra touch which was so thoughtful . I must mention the Hot Tub which is at the side of the lodge a very generous size for two people and it simply made our time there just a little bit extra special, stunning to relax in every evening with a glass of bubbly as I said for my title Simply Heaven. We can definitely recommend trying this Lodge, fully equipped with everything you need, everything has been thought of and we hope to go back soon
