Each bedroom is equipped with TV and telephone points, temperature controls and an accessible ensuite wet room. Firm believers in ensuring our service users and made to feel as comfortable as possible, we encourage bedrooms to be decorated to personal tastes.
A landscaped, sensory garden includes patio areas, a raised flower bed, a greenhouse and a water feature. Service users are free to use the garden as they wish, often developing hobbies to then enter into their individual activities plan.
