We spent Christmas at the Lily Pad and it was great. An extremely comfortable apartment in a stunning location. The welcome ‘gift’ was extremely welcome and generous of the hosts. I would thoroughly recommend – and look forward trying it again in different seasons.

Wonderfully relaxing – gazing out to the water with the swans and geese at their best. Thank you for a fabulous bolt hole full of character and pleasure. Wine and cake delicious too!
Ali – October 2023
We have visited the area many times but this is our favourite place so far. The weather was great – so good that we didn’t get to use the log burner. The wine and cake were fabulous and the views from The Lily Pad are so relaxing. We will return again.

Such a beautiful place and will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you so much again.
Luke & Chrissie – October 2023
Perfect! We have had a most wonderful stay. Weather has been great. What a view to wake up to and in the evening watching the sun go down and geese going to roost. Minsmere is a must for bird watching. Thank you for the wine and cake. It is a lovely touch and very much appreciated. A row on the lake is a MUST.
