Special Features
Some of the features of the purpose-designed building are the wider doors, larger bedrooms with electric beds, Sky TV combatable outlets in all rooms and fittings for external telephones connections.

There is plenty of living space as we have 4 lounges and numerous sitting alcoves, all of which have a different outlook and different furnishings. This means that residents can have a changing outlook each day, which adds interest and variety.

Our gardens are flourishing with plenty of outdoor seating allowing sunny spots to sit.
