About us

A warm welcome awaits you at Heath House.  Set in five acres, in Wakefield area, this early victorian house was built in 1884 by Henry Greaves, a local mill owner, for his 18 year old bride.  


In 1884 Heath House was sold to the Wilson family, who are still owners in Chickenley Head. They divided the house, built the west wing and staircase and lived there as two families, father and son, until grandfather Wilson retired to the coast and the house was purchased by my parents in 1945, at the end of the war. We take great pleasure in sharing our home of 65 years with our guests and aim to provide excellent value at an affordable price for the business travellers, families and tourists.


All our rooms are en-suite and are individually furnished with TV, central heating, tea, coffee, plus fan heaters, hot water bottles and spare duvets for total comfort.
