Our Home

We are very proud of the fact that  we have restored and enhanced the old Victorian country house ever since we bought it in the summer of 1982 we are even prouder of all the people that have contributed to making it a great place to live.

All our bedrooms have been purpose built to be spacious and have been equipped to provide all the comforts you might require we also encourage residents to bring smaller items of personal furniture or effects that have a special sentimental value which will personalise their rooms and help residents settle in.  

The home has exceptionally spacious public rooms, which have many original Victorian features. They are located on the first floor which affords splendid views of the two acres of landscaped gardens.  The lounges, terraces and conservatory allow our residents to join in communal activities or find a quiet spot to entertain their families and friends.
