Some kind words from our guests

Having now stayed a few times in The Bothy at Heale Farm there are so many reasons to keep coming back. The opportunity to step-away from everyday life, sit back, relax, enjoy the sounds, smells and beauty of all the surroundings are just a few. It’s a complete relaxation break away from home. Great for walks, seaside visits or just to take some time out and read a book in peace and quiet.
We can’t recommend a stay at Heale Farm highly enough and Judith and Dean are the perfect hosts.
Go ahead, book your stay – though leave some dates for us please 😀

Just returned home from a sunny long weekend at Heale Farm and we are already suffering from holiday blues! Can we come back already please?!😀
The Roundhouse is perfect, fully equipped with everything you need. Beautiful interior, spotlessly clean and a very cosy feel! Judith and Dean go above and beyond to make your stay amazing. Superb hosts!
The location of Heale Farm is idillic. We walked from Heale Farm to Lynmouth, along a beautiful coastal path. We have posted some pics below of the walk, which we thoroughly enjoyed. We can’t wait to come back and explore some more!
Judith and Dean made us feel so at home during our stay and we highly recommend staying at Heale Farm! We will definitely be rebooking for Autumn/Winter! Thank you so much!

Last week my husband and I stayed in the Round House at Heale Farm and I must say what a stunning place it was. You know when you visit a new place and there’s always a touch of apprehension as to whether it’s going to he as good as it shows on the internet. Well, fear not as it’s fabulous.
Everywhere was exceptionally clean and what an extremely comfy bed!
The Round House has been fitted out to a very high standard. There are plenty of kitchen utensils should you need.
Each morning we were able to watch Roger and Shalinda, the horses, being set free in the field opposite our bedroom window.
If you’re looking for somewhere quiet and away from it all then this is definitely the place for you.
We have already recommended Heale Farm to family and friends.
Thank you Judith and Dean.
