Heckfield Place
  • A beautifully restored country home, Heckfield Place combines the elegance of its Georgian origins with a pared back simplicity and homely intimacy

  • This eco-friendly country retreat places sustainability and local produce at its heart, with many ingredients sourced from the estate’s biodynamic farm

  • Under the culinary direction of Skye Gyngell, the two restaurants feature menus of seasonally inspired, exquisitely prepared dishes

  • This earthy, natural ethos flows into the Little Bothy Spa, where holistic wellbeing is nurtured through personalised treatments and fitness programs for body and mind


Surrounded by gardens, ancient woodlands and wild meadows, Heckfield Place is a vision of refined elegance, tastefully understated luxury and with an unbounded connection to the nature on its doorstep. While respecting and preserving the heritage of the building, the decor blends a contemporary flair with antiques and original features to create something that is at once unique and comfortingly familiar.   

Combining skilled craftsmanship with natural materials and individually curated works of art, the 44 rooms and suites are effortlessly sophisticated, homely, with a sense of being part of the countryside in the woven mats, English oak floors and handcrafted furniture. With six room types ranging from the intimate Friends Room to the vast grandeur of the Long Room, and dotted throughout the house, corridors and grounds, the accommodations feature Wildsmith Skin amenities, bespoke minibars and thoughtful touches that make you feel immediately at home. Mealtimes at Heckfield remind you once again of the exceptional beauty of the landscape that surrounds the house. Expertly crafted by Skye Gyngell, the menus of Hearth and Marle take the produce of the estate’s biodynamic farm and conjure up impossibly fresh, natural and rustically refined dishes. From the pared back simplicity and honest food of Marle to the classic dishes of Hearth, cooked on an open fire, dining at Heckfield Place is an occasion to savour and remember. This communality with nature and the landscape extends to the Little Bothy Spa, where Wildsmith products and holistic wellbeing from Bodyism combine to create a sanctuary for body and mind. Ingredients from the apothecary garden and bespoke fitness plans will leave you feeling at once refreshed, revived, and relaxed. With an ever-changing schedule of talks, film screenings, walks, classes and tours, there is something for everyone at Heckfield, and smaller guests aren’t forgotten, with a wealth of suggested activities, from visits to the farm, treasure hunts and den building. With 400 acres of land to explore, Heckfield Place is a perfect escape for guests old and young.
