About us…….

Heather Glen is found overlooking the village of Ainstable, in the beautiful Eden Valley

(9 miles from Junction 42 M6, and 9 miles from Junction 41).

From the moment you turn up our drive, you will relax and enjoy our lovely country air and views.

Whether we are looking after your friends,  ‘home’ for your wedding guests and family,  or the perfect ‘bolthole’ to stay and explore,  we aim to ensure your stay is truly memorable and that this is the first of many visits!

Built in 1900 by a local stonemason for his family,  the Heather Glen first opened its doors as a country club in the 1950’s.  Since 2008 the house has been owned by Dennis, Judith and Damion Smith.  Working with our highly experienced team we have built a business based on friendly family service,  delivering the best of traditional local country cuisine and hospitality.  We have refurbished the original house whilst still maintaining its original roots,  adding new restaurants,  function suites,  private dining and civil ceremony room in a contemporary style.   Further additional luxury boutique ensuite bedrooms have been added.


We love animals!   We have our own dogs, cat, sheep and goats!

Your dog will feel right at home at the Heather Glen.  Your pal will love our garden and surrounding country walks.   However, we do ask that owners follow a few important guidelines when visiting with their favourite dog.

We have four bedrooms that are ‘dog friendly’,  so please check when booking.
