Our 21 rooms offer single occupancy, and we have extensive grounds all on one-level, which is ideal for wheelchair users, 12 rooms have a toilet and wash hand basin, while the other 9 have wash hand basins. One room has a skylight window, rather than a traditional window with a view. The option of this room would be a personal choice.
We encourage service users to bring personal belongings and offer a choice when redecorating a service user’s room. This is to create a “home from home” atmosphere.
There is a dining room just off the kitchen area. Our menus are prepared after consultation with our service users. The food is all freshly prepared, and we use local suppliers, in keeping with our ideal of supporting local businesses where we can. The food is of an excellent standard, and we are often complimented of the variety and quality of our dishes. Our service users particularly like the fact that they can enjoy breakfast starting as early as 7am right through to 10am each day.
There is a large living room with communal TV and DVD, which leads onto a large patio area with decorative fishpond, and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside. There is access to all areas for possible wheelchair users. Our garden surrounds the main building and has access to the chicken coup.
The toilets, one of which has an overhead hoist for transfers to and from the toilet. There are two shower rooms and a bathroom, again with an overhead hoist.
