Your home with your own accommodation provides companionship and security with the joys of home cooking. We have dedicated staff to support you, with care services facilitated when needed. Visitors are always welcome. Our charges are fully inclusive with no hidden extras. We are accredited with Supporting People.

The Octagon supported house was built in 1970 and is in a rural setting with a shop and a post office.

We have ten studio en suite apartments which are personalised to taste for a real home from home ambience. The house is highly thought of by its residents.

A non-resident manager is in attendance, and there is a 24-hour community alarm to give you complete peace of mind.

Our charges are fully inclusive. All meals are provided and there are also laundry facilities. Care services can be facilitated if and when needed.

We accept new residents from 65 years of age.


The Octagon is managed by Abbeyfield Basildon

We provide two healthy and delicious meals a day, which are cooked and prepared at the house. Our qualified cooks pride themselves on providing excellent food which is all freshly prepared, and where possible, using locally sourced produce.

Each house has an individual approach to catering for their residents, with menus being tailored to dietary needs and special events. But we always offer plenty of choices, including vegetarian options, and great portion sizes!

Meal time at an Abbeyfield is also important as it’s when the whole house gets together - a time to have a chat enjoying great food and great company.
