Furnished with antiques and Persian carpets, the Boathouse has a nautical feel thanks to timbered ceilings and wooden replicas of sailing ships. It has four en-suite bedrooms, and a terrace that overlooks a tennis court. The property is part of the extensive Archerfield estate, with two championship golf courses.
