Staying at lilypod

Our Lilypods, Heron and Kingfisher, are benchmarks in sustainable, low carbon, ecologically responsible off-grid glamping. Powered by the sun, hewn from local Devonian timbers and giving new life too old are balanced to give you a truly unique place of wonder and delight. 


Lounge on deck or float in the suspended hammock above the water enjoying outstanding views and our waterfall, they really offer the perfect romantic getaway. 

Indulge yourself with a bottle of award winning wine from the vineyard right here at Alder Farm or visit the vineyard restaurant. See all our favourite places to visit – Local to lilypod

Our sleepy Devon farm is only lit by stars at night. You might just sleep better than you have in years. Escape, relax & reconnect during your romantic getaway in Devon.

The bare timber frame domes offers warm, sumptuous living spaces.

Snuggle down with our hot n toasty, easy control wood burners or wrap up in the comfort of our soft blankets.

Flop in your king-size bed with opulent bamboo bed linen and plush mattresses. Refresh yourself with our walk-in showers and the softest towels.

  • The bathrooms offer a bespoke walk-in shower powered by a gas boiler for a truly indulgent experience. One of the best waterless composting loo systems on the market and of course the softest bath sheets. 
  • Snuggle up with a good book on our cosy bean bags. You’ll find some of our favourite books on the shelves including local guide books, and a selection of our favourite board games.
  • The front decks have comfy chairs and table and are real sun traps in the summer months. Don’t forget to try our suspended hammocks for that floating above the water feeling.
  • Your fire pit and bbq are either suspended above the water for Heron guests, or in your private, handcrafted willow fence surrounded landscaped idyl for Kingfisher guests – they are absolutely magical spaces.

"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."

Lilypod floats gently allowing you to really experience the beautiful land and waterscape.
