“A piece of heaven”
Reviewed 17 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My girlfriend and I stayed at Lilly lake yurt.
It is by far the best place I stayed in, in the UK. The yurt looked amazing, it had all those little details that made it look out of this world.

The butterflies lit up at night, the birds glowed in the dark. At night all you heard was a peaceful silence and the occasional noises that the fish made.

There were also friendly chicken, who curiously walked around and later on brought their friends to try and steal my bait..

The hot tub was heaven, you can always stay warm, enjoy the bubbles while it's raining.

I do not know the names of the people working but they all have been so welcoming and nice with us, we were even given a ride to the station, such a great place.

Counting the days to go back there again.

Thank you for the wonderful experience.

Thank you so much Ross it was a pleasure to host you both, when I designed the yurt I could only hope that our guests would see all the little details, I just wanted to create a little slice of heaven. Hope to see you again soon. Best wishes Sue x

“Stunning ”
Reviewed 31 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Two friends and I stayed here for a couple of nights in August and loved every minute. The Yurt itself is beautiful and overlooks a gorgeous lake - we all loved the decor inside and the outdoor kitchen/bbq was perfect. The hot tub was just the icing on the cake - we couldn't have asked for a better weekend, Sue was lovely and very helpful in showing us around and staying in touch before we arrived. A bottle of prosecco was given to us as the smoke alarm batteries were running low so it caused it to beep in the morning- it was such a nice gesture and we really appreciated it. I would happily book to stay again and would recommend to anyone. Thanks Sue :)

“Breathtaking at first glance”
Reviewed 20 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

As soon as we walked through the gate we were taken away by how amazing it was. Sue came out to meet us and showed us around. On the first night we made good use of the BBQ and caught a lot of fish, I was very happy with the lake. The hot tub was amazing in the evening with all the lights and fire pit, it was very romantic. We went for a meal in The Blue Strawberry, recommend it 100%, it was delicious. We felt safe and relaxed during our stay here, also the bed was really comfortable. My girlfriend and I have had the break we needed. And will sure to be back in the near future, but for longer next time as we traveled from Liverpool.
Once again thank you Sue :)

“Atiny piece of heaven!”
Reviewed 17 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I'll start with the cons.....I should have arrived earlier to make even more of my stay!
Wonderfully warm welcome by Sue, she couldn't have been kinder.
The photos are great but they don't convey the incredible sense of peace that just oozes from the place.
I don't really want to write too much as i'm afraid it will become too popular and I won't be able to go back!!
Seriously, if you want some time out from reality go to Lily Lake, it's perfection!!

“Perfect surprise getaway”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Have just come back from a 2 night stay for a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. The whole experience was far greater than I ever imagined, the scenery was beautiful and thought had been put into every detail in the yurt. We had the best stay and Sue could not have been more helpful, even picking us up and taking us back to the station. Would return without a doubt.

“Beautiful and relaxing ”
Reviewed 30 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Had a brilliant weekend at Lilly lake . The yurt itself was perfect, beautiful to look at and very comfortable , the bed was amazingly comfortable. The hot tub was great for night time looking up at the stars. Every thing has been well thought out, you have a fantastic BBQ with kitchen area with all the utensils you might need. We caught lots of fish while we was there. It's very private and romantic. Will be back there very soon.
