About the property

Abbeyfield House was built in 1975 and renovated in 1978 to provide comfortable housing for eight older people who are reasonably fit.

Each resident has their own room which can be furnished with their own treasured furniture and possessions for a homely ambience. The house has a well equipped bathroom and toilet on each floor.

We have a delightful communal lounge / dining room so there is always somewhere to enjoy the company of others. There is also an attractive well-maintained garden so that you can sit out and take in the fresh air and sunshine.

The support in Abbeyfield House is provided by our paid full time house manager, assisted by local volunteers. She cooks tasty and nutritious main meals for lunch and supper. Residents prepare their own breakfast but the housekeeper does all the shopping and provides the food.


This house is managed by Abbeyfield Bishops Stortford
