Built in 1998, Regency Mews has 21 studio flats, all mobility standard. Our house is set in quiet grounds with mature trees, a variety of shrub beds and a flat access path around the building. It is a haven for the local garden birds.

within we have a large comfortable lounge, used by the residents, with various sitting areas, a TV and music system. There is also a reading area with books provided by the local library service. We also have computers available for residents and family, as well as wifi.
