About Us

Thorne Park & Beech House is owned and run by The Heard Family. Born and bred in the West Country they extend to everyone a really warm welcome. Offering you good Farmhouse Accommodation, scrumptious Farmhouse cooking and a family atmosphere.

A mile and half from Holsworthy, Thorne Park is peaceful and unspoilt with lovely views, just ten miles from the beautiful coastline at Bude. On your visit you will get to taste some homemade delights such as scones or biscuits.


Dave along with his son Gareth who helps him on the farm. Why not ask them about the animals on the farm and the land that they love. You may also see Bowie our dog, the newest addition to the family.

We love meeting our new guests from the far corners of the UK and abroad, with many returning year after year. We look forward to meeting you and ensuring your stay is as wonderful as possible.

In 2013 we installed our Central Heating System which is run by a wood pellet boiler, this has made our Farmhouse even more warm and cosy, and is hopefully making us far more green!
