Out with the old, and in with the new….

The refurbishment continues with replacing the old water tanks in the roof. Not an easy job when they have to be carried up 3 flights of stairs! The photos give some idea of the size of roof space above the bedrooms below.

At last, Heath House gets its own water meter!

This is big news for us….after years of trying with Severn Trent, we have finally got our own water meter so we can see what we’re actually using. Persistence pays off in the end!

The Sound of Music comes to Heath House with an Advent Harp Recital!

We had a super time with Derwent Harps here on Saturday evening. Nearly 100 people were treated to a smorgasbord of musical delights with hot mulled punch and mince pies in the interval. There was also a raffle and a Harp for the lucky winner. Good luck to all the students in their studies and we hope to see you again soon.

A great day at The Heath House, the open day was a huge success on Sunday 29th March 2015 huge thanks to all involved.

The Heath House provides a magnificent country house venue for weddings, civil ceremonies and receptions. The inner hall and grand staircase provide the perfect photo opportunity for any bride as she makes her way down to the assembled guests below. The grand drawing room and dining room with their original features, paintings and extensive views to the south and west and across the park and woods to the north, provide the perfect backdrop to any civil ceremony or wedding reception. Outside, the house is set in 127 acres of rolling parkland with delightful formal gardens and a glorious Regency Orangery that can be used for Civil Ceremonies or as a stunning backdrop to any wedding photograph’s.

Michael Johnson (not the sprinter although he does paint very fast!) and family have decorated and brightened

the hallway. We are delighted!

Marston Montgomery WI visit for Historic Tour

Tania Sketchley and the Marston Montgomery WI group all came here for one of our Historic Tours. We were blessed with fine weather so all enjoyed a walk through the gardens and opportunities for photographs outside our Orangery. Thank you all for coming and we look forward to welcoming future parties here.image
