If you thinking of down sizing, consider Rose Lodge and come and join our happy family.

We have been here for 3 and a quarter years and loving it.

Our manager is very approachable and has a loving and caring staff.

Bill and Rowena.

Our villa is convenient to the Rest Home in which we as residents are able to visit and attend any house functions.

Staff at Rose Lodge are friendly and very helpful...nothing is a bother.

We would recommend the villas at Rose Lodge as a home in later life.
