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 en-suite studio apartments and ten en-suite apartments rooms with a separate bedroom. It is maintained to a very high standard following refurbishment of the existing accommodation. New residents are accepted from 55 years of age.

The house includes mobility standard and wheelchair properties, and is disabled-friendly with a lift. 

Care line facilities are installed in each room, providing 24 hour cover for that added peace of mind. Laundry facilities are available for those who can manage this for themselves. Help with cleaning and laundry can be arranged for a small additional charge.

Johnson House is managed by Abbeyfield Whitehaven

Our delicious food

At Johnson House, we provide two healthy and delicous meals each day, which are always prepared in house. qualified cooks pride themselves in 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 times at Johnson House are important as it's when the whole house gets together - a time to have a chat, to enjoy great food, and great company.
