About the Heath family
Firstly, I’d just like to say hello and welcome to Heaton House Farm. We know how important choosing the right venue for your wedding is, but we’ll do everything we can to make that decision as easy as possible.
I’m Sarah Heath, the daughter of Mick and Margaret – the 6th generation of the Heath family. Heaton House has been in our family since the late 1800’s, and to this day, the 165 acres we have are still a working rural farm – with a few modern enhancements!
Heaton House was the original name of the farmhouse back in 1824 when it was a doctor’s surgery, and today we (along with Jack – the faithful family dog!) have transformed the barns into a stunning countryside wedding venue that we cannot wait to share with you!
We’ve been running community events for 30 years, but since 1999, after a request from one of our local guests, we opened up our doors for a barn wedding! And we haven’t looked back.
It’s been all hands on deck at times, juggling lambs and ceremony chairs, cows and PA systems, but we’ve worked hard to establish Heaton House Farm as an outstanding place to get married.
We’re still family owned and operated, with both my Dad Mick and my Mum Margaret playing an active role across the farm and in the set-up of weddings. But to ensure the day is as special as possible, our family has grown to include a team of over 50 passionate and dedicated members of staff, available seven days a week between 9am and 5pm.
Trust me when I say you’re in friendly, safe hands. We’re very proud to have won titles at The Wedding Industry Awards for the past three years, including ‘Best Events Team’ and ‘Best Countryside Venue’ in the North West. But more importantly, we’re proud of the warm, helpful welcome you’ll get when you visit, and the attention to detail you’re guaranteed to receive.
Our doors are open to you, so please arrange a visit and let us show you around our farm. We’re looking forward to welcoming you, and we’re always here to answer any questions at all you might have – big or small.
Here’s to an incredible wedding, and I hope to see you soon!
