Come Aboard the Cruiser


As you enter the Cruiser via its own private artificial grass walkway this leads you through into the rear living space. The first thing you will see is the Cruiser's bespoke neon welcome sign surrounded by its own feature plant wall. If the 2 outdoor cinema screens do not take your fancy there is another 46 inch screen and sofa inside, complete with coffee table and set of drawers you are welcome to use during your stay.

As you continue through you will see a door on your right that leads you into the bathroom. The bathroom is faux marble complete with power shower, sink, toilet, heated towel rail, LED anti-mist mirror and port hole! All our venues are provided with toiletries and goodies for you to enjoy during your stay, which will all be found in the Cruiser's bathroom.

You will then see the most incredible part of the Cruiser (if the rest is not incredible enough!): The main area has a king size bed facing out over the lake. The views have to be seen to be believed. You overlook your own secluded private lake from the comfort of your bed. The end of the Cruiser is floor to ceiling bi-fold doors, which you can have open or closed, but either way does not spoil the breathtakingly beautiful view. The bed has a high cushioned back so you can sit up in bed and drink in the view.

You can open the glass bi-fold doors back and step out on to your own floating deck should you want to fully embrace the view further. You may even get visits from all the ducks, moorhens and two black swans the lake is home to. A kind note, please do not feed the birds! As you step back in to the Cruiser (minding the bed!) you will find your own kitchenette at the back complete with fridge, freezer, microwave, kettle and all utensils, crockery and cutlery.

Above the bed, for when you can tear your eyes away from the views, is a stunning starlight sky that is framed with another fantastic ceiling plant feature.

The Most Incredible Views


The Cruiser is completely fitted with feature LED lights. You have full LED lights surrounding the house boat which light up the water all around it - you may even spot some fish after dark! You have full LEDs throughout the interior as well. Depending on your mood the Cruiser comes with Lutron lighting which gives you the opportunity to adjust the settings so you can select whichever suits you best.

The Cruiser is completely unique and we cannot wait for you to enjoy it! It is perfect for all weathers, all occasions and all year round as the outdoor cinema and hot tub are covered.

Do not forget you are on a boat so it will move with you when you are on it! All towels and linen are provided.

As with all our venues the Cruiser is the perfect mix of nature, serenity but with all the mod cons for luxury living.

The stunning views and decor can be viewed on its gallery below, on our Instagram, TikTok or full gallery page which can be found at the top of the screen.


Our New Floating Retreat


Let us introduce you to ' The Cruiser'. Our unique floating venue overlooking our private lake!

We have created our first floating venue, this is situated on an acre and a half lake, the unique venue offers complete escapism to fully absorb every aspect of nature at its finest, mixed with all of the luxury touches Secret Cabins is renowned for!

The Cruiser is completely secluded with the most incredible views with the best of decadent living.

Upon arrival at "The Cruiser" you have the benefit of private parking for two cars along with your private gated entrance.

Here you are met with your outdoor cinema area! You will find a pagoda with double layer louvres and LED lighting which houses a king size day bed that can be enjoyed all year round. The outdoor bed comes with an electric base with massage features for back and leg vibrating massage, with 4 frequencies and 3 intensities which are all controlled by a remote control. You can also adjust the back and foot rest for extra comfort. The day bed faces a large 150 inch cinematic screen that is projected onto the side of the Cruiser that sits above the water. It is the perfect place to chill out and watch your favourite film outside whilst enjoying the serenity of the water.

As you keep walking round you have your own private deck that goes out into a jetty on the lake. As you walk onto the jetty you will see your private 5 person hot tub with built in LED lights inside and outside, on your right hand side complete with another 75 inch smart TV screen. That's right, the Cruiser comes with 2 outdoor cinema screens! You can play your favourite music or watch your favourite shows whilst in the hot tub. Both cinema screens have Apple TV so you can easily log into your own Netflix account. The hot tub area has a stylish stainless steel mini fridge positioned perfectly next to the hot tub so you can have easy access to your drinks - why not enjoy a glass of bubbles in the bubbles!

As you continue along your private deck you have your own Moda Furnishings fire pit table which is perfect for that romantic atmosphere, keeping warm or cooking, as it comes with a fire griddle. The fire griddle and table are perfect to be used all year round for culinary delights and the venue comes with full instructions of how to easily operate it. The deck is home to an artificial grass double sofa overlooking the beautiful lake.

Finally at the very end of the deck is a stunning iron pagoda and a swing seat, a Sonoran Luxurious double egg hanging chair, that overlooks the lake. It is the perfect place to relax, breathe and take a moment to enjoy the stunning surroundings.
