This is perfect. Romance, peace, luxury, privacy, scenery... All in one perfect package. I would want to keep it a hidden secret, but it deserves to be better known. Having gone to bigger places before, this is far better because you get the personal touch, and don't feel like you're just lining the pockets of some carbon copy hotel chain.
We went midweek for my partners birthday, and I would say there's something extra special about chilling in a hot tub knowing your colleagues are working hard at your stressful job! Add others have said, the place is stunning...Instagram worthy with #nofilter ! The wood burner and the fresh eggs were highlights for me, it's that simple luxury.
We will be back here in the future, especially as we're from essex anyway so this will be our escape I think!
This place is paradise. That's the only way to describe it. Everything I could have possibly wanted was there and I had the most relaxing weekend of my life! In the morning, we were offered fresh eggs which were delicious when we fried them for breakfast! Sue and co were wonderfully helpful without being at all intrusive - they never came to us but were always around if we wanted anything or just to say hi to! I didn't even realize the lake was in use because I didn't see anyone fishing the whole time we were there - the yurt is so private. Everything inside the yurt was absolutely beautiful and both the yurt and the hot tub were done up beautifully. There is currently construction going on but we didn't hear a thing - good luck with it :) I don't know what they could possibly do to make the experience better - it was so absolutely perfect. Thank you so much to all of you!
Me and my boyfriend wanted to go away for a few days to somewhere that was nice and cosy, had good scenery with a hot tub. We came across lily lake yurt and it looked ideal so we booked directly through Sue. We were not disappointment, it's hard to describe how perfect this place was.
When we arrived Sue came and met us, she gave us a quick tour of the yurt and told us all the information we needed to know for our stay, she made us feel incredibly welcome.
The yurt itself is so beautifully done, so cosy and every little detail made it perfect. There was a big double bed, two recliner chairs between the wood burning fire. A small table and chairs where we was able to have a romantic meal. Fairy lights around the edge to light it up at night with lots of little candles to put on. Their was a large side board with everything in it, cutlery, crockery, spare candles, salad bowls, wine bucket and just about everything.
The outside decking was just as great. It had a high table with really great chairs over looking the lake. A sheltered kitchen like area with chopping boards, a kettle, a fridge/freezer which was perfect for a BBQ (with a light for night time cooking). The BBQ was big and pots and pans were provided so we could do a bit extra like boil potatoes and make omelettes in the morning. We ate all our meals there to make the most out of the scenery and our stay, which made it even better.
The hot tub was perfectly situated by the lake. Morning afternoon and night we were in there and we could use it whenever we wanted (even had cup holders for our wine). Sue gave us large robes and flip flops to wear to the hot tub which made
Getting out into the Cold not so difficult.
There was a really nice bench on the lake, we had a fire pit outside which was nice for drinking by the lake on a chilly evening.
We decided to go fishing, there was a peg by the yurt so you didn't have to leave which meant we could grab snacks and drinks. They came and set us up with two rods, and showed us how to do it. Jack managed to catch a few big carps while I sat back and watched from the hot tub.
Basically this place was perfect if you want a few days away to relax, unwind and have a few drinks and we both couldn't recommend it enough.
What a beutifal,stunning place.
We have been there twice now and love how relaxed and peacefal this amazing location is.
This time we stayed in Lilly lake yurt. Which is hidden from view but situated right next to the lake.you enter through a gate in to a private and sucluded little area with its own not tub to the left facing out to the lake. It has it's own fixing swim for sitting and relaxing whilst you fish.and also a little jetty for just sitting and taking it all in. This area is decorated with lovley solar lights at night and up lights in the deaking. Also with the owners eye for detail we loved all the little ornaments and flowers and also colourfal bird boxes scattered around. You walk up on the the deaking with more seating and table for alfresco dinning. And a fally equipt kitchen area under cover with a fridge freezer and had bbq.
Then to the yurt it's self. How amazing. It it's a gain beutifally decorated with lots of thought and care. With very beutifally carved wood. It has a amzing wood burnier which helps warm up a cosy space to relax in.
The bed isvery luxurious and comfortable. He little touches as well help it to be somewhere really speacil to take a loved one on a romantic getaway.
The owners arevery attentive and will do any thing for u. Also LOfty the balife is on hand should u want a paper in the morning or anything from the shop. Sue and Gary have an amazing place and I would highly recommend this place to anyone for a getaway and fishing.
