Thoughtful welcome basket....great views & lots of Red Kites soaring above...
Builth Wells & Brecon within easy reach....great dog country....thoroughly recommend Lily Pond Lodge.
Had an amazing few days staying here. Such a beautiful setting, so peaceful & relaxing. The hot tub is a huge bonus of this little place
Debbie is very friendly & welcoming, already thinking about booking to go back again
On arrival at Lily Pond Lodge for the weekend, my partner and I entered Lily Pond cottage, (Debbie the owner, had left the door unlocked with the key on the inside by prior arrangement) and we both felt as if this was our home from home. On the dining table was a beautifully arranged assortment of fresh bread, butter, fruit, cereal, fresh eggs, snacks etc. The fridge was also fully stocked with milk etc. There are so many pots and pans, cleansers etc ,as well as slow cooker, and modern hi spec microwave. The room was spotlessly clean and with lovely fresh linen, we slept well in a warm and cosy room. The bathroom with fluffy towels and excellent shower was also spotlessly clean. the veranda has a fantastic hot tub , the water was lovely and warm and just right for two people. Lily Pond cottage has a beautiful pond , and is set on rolling, and flat Greenland's is a must to experience and return to .
Absolutely charming little lodge in beautiful peaceful surroundings. Located down a hidden quiet valley over a small pond, with only another lodge and a guest house neighbouring - and these are at enough distant to give you plenty of privacy. The lodge itself was comfortable, clean and had everything we could need for a romantic weekend away. The provided food basket was fantastic and even more than we bargained for.. we had home made bread, muesli, real butter, Welsh cakes, jam, crisps, eggs, grapes and milk all waiting for us!! The hot tub was perfect, it was warmed up ready for us (just don't lower the temperature right down at night - we got told off for this even though there was no instructions on how to use it!!); it was incredible to unwind in with the trickle of the nearby river being the only sound to be heard. The area is also great for wildlife enthusiasts - we saw a Heron on the lilypond and Yellow Hammers in the hedges just up the lane from the lodge. There's plenty of options for small or long walks around too. In summary - we would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway and we're definitely hoping to visit again soon.
I can't believe it's already been 4 weeks since we were here!
We had an amazing time here, the place is virtually perfect as a romantic 'get away from it all' location. Me, my wife and our dog enjoyed a relaxing break, as well as several champagne hot tubs! (Not the dog is course).
We reviewed this last year (see my march 2016) and just had to come again.
We thought it was fab and everything was great again including Debbie's hospitality.
stayed here on the 3rd of feb for 3 nights with my partner.
have to say we had the best possible time. i was content not to even move for 3 days. the rooms is more than big enough for 2 people. the bed was comfortable and the whole lodge was super clean. there is a lovely surprise on arrival.
the lily pond is beautiful and the out side terrace looks amazing. all wooden and has a BBQ which we used even in the cold and a hot tub! yes a hot tub! was brilliant.
if you like driving you will love the drive from Beacon to the lodge about 40mins through amazing views and and tight bends. like top gear!
over all we had an amazing experience and already discussing when we will go back again
do climb the small hill behind the lodge - great view from the top.
PS. trip was topped off as we went to the top of Pen Y Fan and she said ' yes' !
