Other Information

Originally an arable and pig farm, Heath Farm was converted over 25 years ago. The outbuildings were converted into light industrial units which now are home to a bakery, sound studio, joiners shops and two showrooms. The farmhouse buildings were converted into the magnificent cottages you now see. Almost all the land was then set aside for forestry and over the course of the next 35 years a beautiful transformation took place. 

The farm is meticulously maintained and has loads of mown rides and trails throughout the woodland plus lovely gardens to relax in. There is a boating and fishing pond which is spring fed, it has recently been restored and it's now also used for wild water swimming by guests!

There is also a great games room which has pool table, table tennis, darts, movie projector screen, fitness & music equipment plus loads of DVDS, Books and games to use. The games lawn has a croquet pitch and badminton/volleyball area plus games shed packed full of equipment including boules, giant jenga, kites, frisbees plus most bat & ball games kit. There's also a woodland stage and outdoor catering area nearby the games lawn which you are free to also use.

Thank you, we had another really super week in Beechnut. Celebrating Christmas and a special Birthday and we woke to snow one morning which made it all look quite 'magical'.
