Johnson House was built in 1987 in an area of outstanding natural beauty, close to the Lake District and the Solway coast. The retirement property consists of ten ensuite rooms and ten one-bed apartments. It is maintained to a very high standard following refurbishment of the existing accommodation. New residents are accepted from 55 years of age.

Self contained apartments available - contact us today! 

The sheltered house includes mobility standard and wheelchair properties, and is disabled-friendly with a lift and separate chairlift provided to the first floor accommodation.

Care line facilities are installed in each room. Washing facilities are available for those who can manage this for themselves but help with cleaning and washing can be arranged for a small additional charge.

Johnson House is managed by Abbeyfield Whitehaven

At an Abbeyfield supported house, 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.
