  The Detail...

Tucked away on the beautiful Orchardleigh Estate and overlooking its picturesque lake, this Palladian-style boathouse is a secluded escape for couples. Spend your evenings relaxing in the hot tub as the sun sets over the lake after a day exploring the 500-acre estate. Or perhaps have a cosy night in with a roaring fire while reflecting on a day visiting the stunning Georgian city of Bath, just 10 miles away. This luxurious hideaway for two offers complete seclusion in a stunning setting.

Orchardleigh Boathouse could hardly have a more romantic location. Hidden in the woods on the bank of a 35-acre lake, the elegant architecture complements the surroundings perfectly. Inside, youll find a cosy studio, with a fully-equipped kitchen and separate bathroom. Wake up in the mornings in the luxurious bed and watch the mist rise from the lake from the comfort of your pillow, through the full length windows.

Make yourselves a delicious cooked breakfast in the traditional-style kitchen with its pretty painted cabinets, with the help of a range of modern, high end appliances. Theres a dining table in front of the full length window or you can take your meals outside on the terrace and take full advantage of those views. An open fireplace is set in an exposed brick wall to keep you cosy in the evenings. Settle down on the comfy sofa in front of a roaring fire and completely unwind. Next door, the modern bathroom is beautifully tiled and features a luxurious waterfall shower and twin sinks. Bath robes, soft towels and toiletries are all provided for you.

Outside, a private terrace overlooks the lake with garden furniture for alfresco dining, with a hot tub perfectly positioned to enjoy the view. Relax here or take a stroll around the stunning grounds. There are plenty of walking and cycling trails in the surrounding Somerset countryside which allow you to discover more of the beautiful landscape surrounding Orchardleigh. Bath is just ten miles away and makes a wonderful destination for a day trip. Visit the Roman Baths or relax in the rooftop pool of the Thermae Spa with views over the city. With fantastic restaurants, striking architecture and lots of boutique shops, youll have plenty to explore.

A round of golf can be booked directly with Orchardleigh Golf and Country Club, also within the Estate, or why not enquire about taking a helicopter ride above the stunning Somerset countryside?

The Peacock Steak Restaurant is a lovely stroll away from the Boathouse. You can help yourself to the starter buffet whilst ordering from the extensive steak menu, or daily specials. If you still have room, you can enjoy one of the homemade desserts on offer. The restaurant is fully licensed, adjacent to the Golf and Country Club. This area can be booked for exclusive use. Please do not hesitate to enquire direct to the Golf Club.
