A superb find! My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful week in Thorpeness, staying at The Lily Pad – and what a superb find this was. The accommodation is first-class, very tastefully decorated, clean, comfortable, cosy and in a stunning location, right on the edge of the Meare. The apartment has everything you are likely to need for a self-catering holiday, even down to a lemon-squeezer! The owners are charming and extremely accommodating. Very many thanks for a lovely week, we had a great time despite the lack of sunshine and the fuel crisis! We definitely hope to return!

Thank you both for a wonderful break in your beautiful Lily Pad. We have been made to feel very welcome and have enjoyed every moment! This is a lovely place to stay – so peaceful – we didn’t quite catch the nightingales but we hope to on our next visit. Many thanks!

A lovely place to stay for our first visit to this part of the country. Great views over the Meare – enjoyed watching the wildlife. Thank you for the wine and delicious cake and for arranging a boat for us. Hopefully we will be back again soon

We have had a very relaxing few days in this beautiful apartment. Loved sitting outside (when weather allowed) watching the swans. Also love the way the garden design blends in with the natural habitat of the Meare – just beautiful.
