  The Detail...

This marvellous Grade II listed boathouse sits on the edge of a beautiful manmade lake in 10 acres of private land and offers plenty of comfort and vintage styling throughout. From the outside this property is grand as it perches by the water's edge, and once you step inside you're presented with charming old design touches such as rugs and leather chairs that combine nicely with modern amenities.

In summer spend time on the deck that sits next to the water. The deck features dining space for six, as well as brollies, benches, sun beds and more, meaning you can relax for hours with your loved ones in the peace and tranquility of nature. This is an ideal spot to enjoy your morning cuppa as well as a late evening sundowner.

Inside, The Boathouse has a spacious living room featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that perfectly frame the view whilst letting in plenty of natural light. The lounge also has big, comfy leather chairs and a sofa that all sit around the wood-burning stove. The kitchen has all the amenities you need to cook for your group, whilst the attached dining space has room for six.

When it comes to sleeping, The Boathouse comfortably sleeps six across three lovely bedrooms. The master bedroom has a large en suite for added privacy, and is located on the first floor. This room has giant windows that face the lake, as well as a balcony so you can wake up and enjoy the breathtaking view whilst enjoying the fresh country air. The second and third bedrooms are situated up in the eaves and are both cute and cosy, guaranteeing you a great night's sleep. These two bedrooms also share a bathroom. There is also an outdoor office complete with WiFi, offering you a chance to catch up on your emails in peace. The property also has a large laundry with space for boots and coats.

Guests are also provided with a five metre aluminium punt with seating and oars. Be sure to row off to a secluded spot on the lake and drop anchor. You can then enjoy a picnic or a drink on the water, or spend some time fishing - there are four fishing rods as well as reels and tackle available. Furthermore, you're also given two paddle boards which can be converted into kayaks, allowing you to get out on the water and have fun. You're also provided with six life jackets (two large, two medium, and two small), but you will need to bring your own wetsuits. Once you're back on dry land you can then rinse off using the warm outdoor shower provided.

If you fancy spending some time on dry land then the outside lawns and gardens lead onto a one kilometre circular path that is great for morning strolls or jogging beside the lake or in the woods. Along the way you will see the bird hide, so avid birdwatchers can bring their binoculars and settle in to spot the resident birds that include the mute swan, duck, heron, grebes, coot, moorhen, kingfisher, and many more.

If you wish to venture further afield, then there's plenty to see and do. The Boathouse is located in the heart of Worcestershire, so the marvellous Malvern Hills are right on your doorstep, with many walking and cycling routes on offer. You are also not far from the charming cathedral city of Worcester that is home to some lovely historic spots as well as some great pubs and restaurants. And finally, about two miles from your door is the very pleasant town of Droitwich Spa which has ample shopping opportunities as well as big supermarkets including, Waitrose, Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl.

Lisa Ryan says...
"Just completed an amazing stay at The Boathouse. Such a serene and beautiful place - with lots to do and see. Kids were fully occupied by the gorgeous lake and wildlife around it and Fiona and Ian were incredible and welcoming, ensuring we had all we needed to settle in and have a comfortable stay. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back!! Can't recommend more highly!! Xx"
