Our most popular amenity at Hartpiece is a beautiful 4’ deep, 8’ wide wooden hot tub which is located in the West Wing of the Farm. The hot tub will be freshly filled with artesian water for your arrival and the temperature set at 37 degrees. A Finnish sauna and a games room are in separate buildings. Electricity tokens for the sauna are offered separately.
The games room is equipped with a ping-pong table. The table can be folded away and the games room used for conferences, dances, yoga sessions, cake-making lessons or amateur theatre productions, or anything else you might what to try while on holiday.
Banqueting facilities: the main room in Hartpiece Hall can be set up with long banqueting table seating 22. Outside, the heart of the site is a stone-paved patio with covered pavilion and BBQ. There is generous decking in front of the Farm with gardens and woodland beyond.
Country walks: More adventurous guests are encouraged to take in the spectacular views by walking the paths on our organic farm. An oak glen just up the hill is a perfect spot for the watercolourist to set up his easel or the kids to hunt for Robin Hood. We like to think our views rival Dovedale’s, without the crowds!
There is ample parking in front of each building.
