Vacation Rental of the Week: Dragonwood Boat House

July 29, 2015 • By

It is Wednesday, which means it is time for yet another Stylish Rental of the Week! Today I’m featuring a boutique boat house rental located near Oakham in Rutland, United Kingdom. The Dragonwood Boat House was designed solely with romance in mind and saw local craftsmen come together with Harlequin interior designers to create a traditional Victorian bolthole with a modern Italian twist. This lakeside home offers luxury self-catering breaks in the most magical of settings.

Introduction: The Dragonwood Boat House is a hidden gem set in eight acres of its own private grounds within a magnificent country estate. In the springtime, wander through extensive gardens, woodlands and lakeside pathways to find a blanket of over 10,000 tulips and daffodils. With a rich Italian flavor, this luxury self-catering boat house combines an eclectic fusion of classic and contemporary style to create flamboyant appeal. Vibrant violet, orange and green jewel-like hues form an adventurous color palette which oozes opulence.

Whether love-birds choose to explore the grounds by golf buggy or hand-in-hand on foot, there’s no less than eight enchanting acres of private grounds waiting to be discovered. On clement days, lay out a champagne picnic by the lake and enjoy a lazy lunch in the company of the fleeting butterflies, dragonflies and wild birds. Take advantage of the kayaks and while the day away on the water under the late afternoon’s sun. The underfloor heating and Italian log fire will ensure pure comfort on winter’s evenings, where couples can bask in the lavishness of the interiors.
