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' !
My partner and I stayed here for the weekend in December . We absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back ! Hot tub was amazing , the doors opening up onto the decking with the lovely view of the pond was amazing . It was all so relaxing . We really loved it :)
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
