Happy we choose here for our short break. Good value for money and a great location for a dog. It was the peace and quiet we needed.

Reviewed by SALLY 29th February 2020

Absolutely perfect for 2 of us for a weekend break. Lovely and quiet but within easy walking distance of the village which has shops and pubs. The Lily pad was beautifully set up and had everything we wanted. The owners were very friendly and helpful and the place was lovely and clean. We would definitely recommend it.

Had a wonderful long weekend at the Lily Pad. It's a perfect size with a beautiful view of the lake. A great location for relaxing in the hot tub, stargazing or visiting nearby Thetford or Norwich. Local pubs are very friendly.
