“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Billed and priced as 5 star but missing a few basics such as a glass for water in the room. No wifi available in the annex. Milk portions were off so lumpy. Also the nearest walkable pub was not very good, quite a way out of the village.

We would like to start by saying a massive thank you to Eileen and Graham you are fantastic hosts. We stayed for 4 nights and had our wedding reception there too. A luxury guest house with fantastic personal service from start to finish. A word used to describe myself on my wedding day was perfection and that is exactly the word I would use to describe our experience. We will definitely be returning in the future. Eileen and Graham you are both wonderful best wishes for the future Aaron and Jessica Dynes x x x

We booked a family stay, 2 adults, 2 teenagers and a 4 year old. Having spoken to the owners beforehand it was suggested that the Devon room would be ideal for the adults and the 4 year old and the Wiltshire was ideal for the teenagers and after staying there I can confirm that this was the right choice. As a family it met all our needs and the rooms were beautifully decorated, the Devon room is immaculate, not what you would expect from a b&b. The hosts Graham and Eileen are fabulous, warm friendly people who have the attitude that nothing is too much trouble. They went out of their way to make sure that our stay was enjoyable and memorable. Will definitely be going back again. Thank you for our wonderful stay.

We stayed at "Heathclose" 25-29 July 2013. This is no doubt a great place to stay for my son and daughter-in-law's pre wedding and reception. Much better than a 5 star hotel with the personal and meticulous touch from a brilliant host Graham and hostess Eileen - very friendly people nothing was a bother for them to make sure we had a great stay. We arrived our two families from N Ireland and Wales a few days beforehand and had a wonderful time - great food, beautiful rooms and surroundings - everything was "immaculate" . On this note we would like to wish Graham and Eileen the very best of luck in their business for the future we will definitely spread the word and hope to be back at "Heathclose" soon.

With very best wishes to Eileen and Graham

Wow spent 3 nights at Heath Close had our Wedding reception meal their too. Words cannot express how amazing this experience was. A top quality luxury Guest house with the best hosts that you could wish for. No stone was left unturned to make our stay one to remember I simply cannot express enough our thanks and pleasure for the stay and treatment that we had. The rooms were well furnished spotlessly clean and exactly as you see them on the web site. The garden was beautiful full of summer colour.
If you are looking for a quality place to stay with great customer care and attention to detail from great hosts, then look no further than Eileen and Graham. Wonderful people.
Will be going back in the future

Great rooms, super breakfast, comfortable lounge area, plenty of secure parking, attractive and superbly maintained gardens. We have never stayed at a better B & B than Heath Close.

What is left to say? Eileen and Graham are both gracious, generous and friendly hosts.

Room Tip: They are all splendid
