Heathfield House is a unique exclusive hire venue for re-unions, family holidays, special occasions and large group holidays. Once the home of the Bingham family, Heathfield was designed for socializing in the eighteenth century. The extensive holiday cottage in New Forest (and manor) is of impeccable standards, with stylish, neutral interiors and luxurious finishes. Heathfield is a holiday house to be enjoyed, not just admired, we have focused on comfort and creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere for all of our guests. Set in fifteen acres of land you have plenty of space to explore and relax in, whether you want to read in peace or just relax with the family. More personal, adaptable and private than a hotel, Heathfield is the perfect venue for families and friends who want to enjoy a group holiday, party or celebration with up to 24 guests.


What does a holiday mean to you? Escape from the 9-5? Spending quality time with your loved ones? Eating ice cream on the sea front? Walking in the forest or drinking champagne in a Michelin starred restaurant? A family holiday at Heathfield makes all of these things possible as it is much better than your ordinary holiday cottages. Heathfield gives you the environment you need to breathe deep, take your time, and connect with your family and friends. Play croquet on the lawn, or explore the grounds together. Go to a local pub for lunch and maybe drive to the coast. On a warm summer’s evening, sit outside with a gin and tonic and watch the swallows dive around the eaves of the house or watch your children play as they have done for centuries. Heathfield comes alive when it is hosting friends and families holidaying together. It is just that kind of house.

At Heathfield we don’t have housekeepers or other members of staff intruding into your private space during your stay. However, we do have our Estate Team, who can help you to plan an event, organize a day trip, book an activity or bring in caterers or whatever you need.
