"This is a wonderful place for a romantic getaway in Devon. Away from the city, enjoying the magical views, the warmth of the fire in the fireplace, peace and quiet. Kyle is very hospitable and friendly, met us, helped us get to this place and showed us around. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay, everything is tastefully decorated and made with love. On the lake, you can even hear the sound of a waterfall and in the evening small lights are beautifully lit and illuminate the pier to the house. I am very glad that I found out about this amazing place and I plan to visit the Lilypod again."

"Wow - what an amazing stay!! We stayed here after our wedding and it was absolutely beautiful. It is so peaceful and calm outside and we did some beautiful walks round the vineyard. In the mornings we walked up to the cafe and had a delicious breakfast and coffee. Before you arrive you get sent a very helpful manual which was great for us as we had never stayed anywhere 'off grid' before. Everything was easy to understand. Would 100% recommend this stay if you are looking to rest, re-charge on a romantic getaway in Devon."

There are not enough superlatives to describe the Lilypod. Secluded, romantic, atmospheric, wonderful, tranquil are just a few. My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and we would come back in a second. The pod itself is stunning and beautiful and so relaxing. Waking up and rolling out of an extremely comfortable bed and having a swim in the lake, then going for a breakfast at the vineyard on site is absolute perfection. I can't recommend Kyle and this place enough and we will be back!!

“We had the most wonderful 2 days here at Lilypod, what a beautiful hidden gem! So peaceful and such an escape from reality. The pod, the service and welcoming by the host was all perfect. Our favourite part was enjoying the kayak in the sun, and once the weather changed quickly getting cosy indoors with the fire roaring and a bit of scrabble (which is provided). Loved every minute of it!”

“If you're looking to stay somewhere magically different, look no further, because the Lilypod is your answer. My husband and I just spent a seriously comfy, fun night in Kyle's handmade floating geodesic idyl. Surrounded by 5 star comfort; including an extremely effective woodburner, gas hob, hot shower, luxurious bedding and every type of wineglass, we messed about on the lake, paddling under the waterfall, chatting to the Canadian geese and wild swimming, before retiring to read in the evening sun on the sun deck. Time slowed down, the phone got put away, boardgames and books came out. And we didn't need to pack much food either because a short walk away is a vineyard that serves delicious platters to match their wines. Simple Perfection!”

“We have just arrived home after an amazing three nights in the Lilypod.The Pod is absolutely stunning you can just sit outside on the decking looking at the lake all day with not a care in the world. The kayak that is provided is a great bonus, we spent a good hour every evening messing about on the lake. We had the best weather and every meal was cooked outside on the fire pit, what an amazing way to start and finish your day. We will definitely be looking at a return visit. There is no wifi or mobile signal at the Pod which is part of the charm, but we found if we went just up the path a little we got a good signal (EE)”

“Lilypod is one of those special, unique places - an oasis of calm and relaxation. There’s everything you need in the pod - you could quite easily spend the weekend chilling out on the deck, snoozing on the beyond comfortable bed or beanbags. If you want to explore further afield then the Alder vineyard (not even 5 min walk) does wonderful tours and and has an award winning cafe. A short drive away is Lydford Gorge, stunning walks. Can also recommend the Dartmoor Inn - Michelin star, but not a Michelin price tag! Super tasty food and welcoming pub. Nature is rapidly returning to the lake too. We saw herons, many fish and geese and wildflowers a plenty. The gentle bleats of the lambs in the surrounding field all helped with the relaxed environment. Beautifully built, it is obvious how much care & attention Kyle and Jenny have put into Lilypod.”

Where to Find Our Waterscape…

Hushed away on a lake in Devon, just over the border from Cornwall, is one of the UK’s most idyllic places for a romantic getaway. You’ll find Lilypods floating on a secluded corner of this spectacular countryside.

We boast a vineyard next door, award-winning pubs, historic houses and unique towns to delight and enchant you.
