Third time of visiting to enjoy the Heartbeat experience. A few episodes of Heartbeat were actually filmed in this property. Carol is a lovely host and couldn't do more to make our stay enjoyable. Fantastic breakfast. Lovely lady and beautiful setting.

Only a one night visit. A lovely old house with much character to it but in great need for a good spring clean , a bit of d.i.y and then a good decorate. Clean bed and tasty breakfast. Off road parking.

The Beacon is a superbly situated, late Victorain residence, built as a substantial country house for a wealthy mill owner. Situated at one end of Heartbeats' 'Aidensfield', The Beacon nestles comfortably at the rear of the common. Standing adjacent to the church, it sits in its own pleasurable, landscaped grounds of over an acre overlooking fields and open moorland
