The house is incredible - the garden is huge, the beds were so comfy, and the living space is perfect for a weekend away with your friends and family. We had an amazing stay and could not fault anything. We would absolutely return to this gorgeous house!

We all had a fantastic time at Healey House, celebrating a 65th birthday with family ranging from age 20 to 88. The house is grand but welcoming with everything you need supplied.

The cottage met our expectations, was clean, well equipped and spacious, which meant we had a comfortable stay. The grounds were also well maintained. The only downside was that the Wi-Fi was not working throughout our stay which posed some difficulties for our party. However, all in all, we had a great stay and would happily return again.

We have just come back from a second wonderful Christmas at Healey house - 17 of us this time! It is a wonderful property, authentic feel and perfect for big groups (especially if you enjoy cooking and formal dining). Having two kitchens, both with range style cookers, and fridge freezers, makes catering for a large group really easy; two utility rRead moreooms also makes organising the house really smooth and storage plentiful.
