Orchard Air

The Orchard is a unique architect-designed house set in an acre of nature – perfect for exploring and relaxing.

It accommodates up to 12 guests plus 2 beds for the leaders in 5 different shared bedrooms.

Beautiful shared living areas

Your guests will enjoy the quirky layout on different levels which give The Orchard a special character and every room has an airy, spacious feel with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto the garden.

The lounge with treetop views and Juliette balcony offers the perfect peaceful communal area to spend time together alongside the adjoining kitchen-diner with breakfast bar and table seating for mealtimes.

Here, you’ll also find a wood-burning Aga for cosy winter gatherings and directly outside through French windows, a large patio with gazebo for meals, break-time drinks or just for chatting.
All the appliances and kitchen equipment you’ll need are here too, along with a great utility area for hanging up all your outdoor gear as you come in.

There is a family bathroom, 2 ensuite shower rooms, a separate toilet and an exterior toilet too.
The Orchard’s furnishings are contemporary and bright to provide a comfortable soothing atmosphere.

Bespoke detached activity space

A path from the patio leads you from the main house to the 30-foot-long Garden Studio where the group activities take place.

A timber A-frame building with full-length windows onto the garden and a wood-burner make a delightful space to spend time creating, working and playing together.

Large work tables, chairs and sofa can be arranged to suit your needs.
It also has its own adjoining kitchen and bar for break-times or utility use.

Set in the great outdoors

The acre of gardens and woodland give many options for gathering or time alone.

On different levels, each area has a distinct character.
At the top, between the house and the Garden Studio are two intimate tropical gardens with small lawns and plenty of seating to relax or do quiet activities.
Take the slope down to the large grassy lawn area for anything that needs more space – it even has a tree swing!

Steps and paths then take you further to a magical gathering and activity place – the woodland glade – and beyond to the circular woodland walk where you can sketch or write at the bench or perch on the tree-stumps with views over neighbouring fields, surrounded by birdsong or soothed by sounds of the babbling brook below.

Comfy bedrooms and beds

With a total of 14 really comfy beds, for 12 guests and 2 leaders, there is something to love about all 5 of the spacious bedrooms – each full of light with large windows and beautiful views onto the garden and woods.  

And for guests that prefer greater luxury or privacy, the bedrooms give the flexibility of single beds converting to super-kings.
