About the property
Located in the heart of Fulwood Village, just moments from the local shops, Abbeyfield House offers a unique living option for older people in a friendly and safe environment. Our aim is to provide a peaceful and friendly atmosphere, where residents are encouraged to remain independent, yet have the assistance of our professional staff if needed.
Currently all of our rooms are occupied but please contact Jane Laing (House Manager) for more information, to organise a viewing, or be added to our waiting list.
If you provide us with your contact details then we will invite you to our next open morning!

The house has six beautifully appointed rooms, each with en suite and kitchenette facilities. The rooms are mostly unfurnished, allowing residents to make themselves at home by bringing their own furniture and belongings. With a delicious menu including three, freshly prepared fully inclusive meals a day, at Abbeyfield House we take care of the cooking. Why not have a look what's on the menu. For those who like to be social, there are also a range of activities and clubs to get involved in.
Abbeyfield House caters for older people who are still reasonably fit and active but no longer feel happy about coping alone at home, making it a wonderful lifestyle option for those looking for extra help with things like meals and laundry. Due to our relatively small size, we offer a very personalised service in a home from home environment, where all of our residents are cared for and loved.
The wellbeing and safety of residents is taken care of by our House Manager, who is on duty during the day. At night, all rooms are linked to Sheffield's excellent City Wide Care Alarm network.
This house is managed by Abbeyfield Christchurch.

Jane Laing, House Manager
Over 4 years ago, Jane was approached by a friend who thought she would be perfect for the job and encouraged her to apply. Within a few days, Jane had accepted the role and hasn’t looked back since. When Jane isn’t busy taking care of the residents and being a part of what creates such a wonderful atmosphere at Abbeyfield House, she loves to read and has recently taken up golf; Jane really enjoys the time she now spends down at the course.
‘The most rewarding thing about working at Abbeyfield House is actually making a difference to the residents lives, bringing fun and laughter into the home and creating a warm atmosphere.’
With security, consistency and care being some of the most important things for the residents, Jane sees Abbeyfield House as more than just assisted living.
‘There are always fresh flowers and when you walk through that door, you get hit with the lovely smell of home cooking. Although I’m a little bias, I think it’s like a five star hotel!’
Lesley Colley, House Keeper
Lesley, who loves holidaying in Torquay and on the West Coast of Spain, has worked at Abbeyfield for the last two years. One of the best parts about her job is the thanks she gets back from the residents and the family atmosphere at Abbeyfield House.
‘It’s great to come to work and I’ve got great people to work with. I find the feedback, thanks and gratitude the most rewarding part of my job.
The caring and responsibility we have for the residents all mixes together with the help of the committee and the other members of the staff, to create a family atmosphere.
Our residents feel secure and can come to us with any of their concerns or problems and we all work together to sort it out.’
Staying social is easy at Abbeyfield House as you’re instantly connected with a group of new friends, whether its enjoying a glass of wine on our lovely sun terrace or playing a game of cards, you won’t be short of company.
What’s more is we also put on a number of social activities throughout the year including garden parties, strawberry teas and day trips into Derbyshire’s Peak District National Park. In the local area, there are a number of weekly activity clubs and luncheons, which can also be added into your weekly social calendar if you so wish.
Please contact us if you would like to be added to our list of contacts and we will invite you to our next open morning.
