Heath Farm offers guests a peaceful and tranquil setting to enjoy the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. A beautiful courtyard, gardens and 70 acres of woodland and flower meadow await you. Feel free to explore everything we have to offer and to feel at home. Please note that the driveway and farm buildings are in constant use and care should be taken with youngsters in these areas
The Courtyard & Garden
The courtyard with its gracious terraces, intimate herb borders and magnificent views is generously provided with seating areas where guests can relax in peace and tranquility. Enjoy your morning tea, glass of wine in the evening or simply relax with a book to the sound of running water and birdsong. Feel free to pick fresh herbs straight out of the borders to enhance your cooking. For those who enjoy cooking alfresco we provide cast iron barbecues. The gardens that surround the courtyard and reception are also ideal places to enjoy the views and soak up the atmosphere.
The courtyard and garden is a communal space so please be considerate to other guests.
When we have surplus crops guests are welcome to share, you’ll find this on the produce table which is located on the left at the entrance to the courtyard. If the table is empty do please ask. Any donations received will be given to charity.
The family are keen gardeners who have a large garden which produces an abundance of fruit and vegetables such as strawberries, raspberries, potatoes, leeks, carrots, artichokes, cabbage, lettuce, peas. and beans. This is also where flowers are grown to pick for our guests. Inside the poly tunnel we grow grapes, tomatoes, padron peppers, cucumbers and chillies.
Built over 25 years ago, tapping into natural springs in the hillside the pond encourages wildlife from herons, geese and ducks to the occasional kingfisher. Enjoy the views of the cottages reflected in the water as part of your walk or whilst stopping for a picnic.
The Chicken Run
Our chickens roam free in a large enclosure in the woodlands apposite the vegetable garden. Fed on a well-balanced diet of feed and food leftovers from our house, they produce lovely golden yoked eggs far superior to your standard “free range”.
The Animal Fields
We have a small holding of sheep, goats, chickens, geese plus the family dog Poppy. The farm animals will often be seen from your cottage window grazing and lazing in the field below the cottages or behind the bakers and farm buildings.
