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 offices. 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 25 years a beautiful transformation took place. Today much of our work is maintenance of our woodland, grass cutting in the summer and keeping the cottages in the high standards set many years ago. We've had a few new projects such as the games room, outdoor yoga stage and there's plans for other facilities but It's been said by many that we can't improve Heath Farm, we can simply add to it.
