Meet our staff

Our house manager is renowned for both her excellent cooking skills and friendly and caring manner since her arrival over four years ago.

She provides two tasty and nutritious home-cooked meals daily, served in the dining room, and residents make breakfast in their own rooms – perfect for a gentle start to the day.

The house manager is resident, and we have an emergency careline system, so you can rest assured that you will always be safe and secure.

Your privacy and independence will be respected at all times.

We also have an en-suite guest room so your friends and family are welcome to stay.
