Heasley House is a haven of tranquility, with many indoor and outdoor spaces to totally relax in and get away from the stresses of work. Don’t worry, the wifi also works well, if you still feel you want to use it!
Go home healthier and fitter than when you arrived!
Apart from the awesome Exmoor landscape to train in, Heasley House has a stack of fitness facilities, from electric bikes to gym and yoga equipment. So why not tick off one of our DIY Bootcamps while you’re here, or book a slot to see one of our personal trainers.
A place to unwind and refresh
Heasley House was once a Georgian Mine Captain's home and as such is generously proportioned with light and airy rooms.
When staying at Heasley House we welcome guests to make the most of all the spaces and make themselves at home. We have an honesty jar in the bar and guests can make themselves drinks, play shuffleboard, relax in the garden, or sit and chat by any of the three open fires in the house.
If you want to explore the area we’ll guide you to all the best places, and you can even ride our electric bikes to make it even more of an adventure!
Gin & tonic in the bar anyone?
With plenty of large and airy rooms, Heasley House is the perfect place for to relax and destress. The bar has always been most people's favourite room, and has recently been refurbished with a 10ft Shuffleboard table, made especially for us by a clever man in California, USA.
From a delcious meal at Woods in Dulverton, to a pint of ale with the locals at the Poltimore Inn at Yarde Down, there are untold treasures waiting to be found in the surrounding valleys of Exmoor. The abundant local produce available is of the finest quality in the country, and feeds through all the local restaurants and eateries, from the michelin-starred Masons Arms in Knowstone, to our local cheese shop in South Molton.
Please check out our pub and restaurant guide to all the best places to eat and drink at while staying at Heasley House.
Explore the Moor
Exmoor is a rugged, windy, and wildly beautiful environment, waiting to be explored. There’s everything from walking along the dramatic South West Coast Path, watching the deer rut in the grey mists of an approaching dawn, horse riding with the sun and wind on your face, or charging through the lanes with your electric bike on 'turbo'.
The avenues of leaning trees criss-cross the moorland, the dramatic cliffs plunging down to the seas, the tiny villages and quirky 'proper' pubs, all lead to a magical landscape that beckons anybody with a sense of adventure.
There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, let us guide you.
North Devon's beaches are legendary. With easy access to Putsborough, Woolacombe, Saunton Sands, and Croyde to name a few, you are spoilt for choice. All offer great surf and all are dog friendly.
Cycling up and over Exmoor isn't for the faint-hearted, it's a proper workout. However with the advent of electric-bikes the unspoilt roads across the moor are more accessible than ever, with hardly a car in sight.
Idyllic fly fishing
Fancy hooking a wild brownie, sea trout, or even a lucky salmon?! ...you may be surprised by the amount of available fishing in the clear water of North Devon’s multiple rivers. Check out the new Fish Pass app for the south west.
a land of unlimited adventures
We cannot always guarantee perfect sunshine for our guests, but we wouldn't want to either. Devon is best explored in a variety of conditions, with the wind in your hair, and the taste of sea salt never far away from your lips. Whatever the weather, an adventurous spirit will always be rewarded.
