As a traditional British country estate Orchardleigh boasts a rich history with plenty to explore. Orchardleigh House was built in 1856 by William Duckworth and the estate was previously owned by the Champneys, whose family had owned the estate since the Norman Conquest. Orchardleigh´s indefinable English charm is testimony to the Estate changing family ownership only twice in 800 years. Veiled in a tranquil bowl of parklands and lakes, its horizon a sweeping backdrop of rolling Somerset hills, the Poet Laureate Sir Henry Newbolt, (1863-1938) was inspired to write his finest works from his love of Orchardleigh it´s Island Church.
