Located in the historical town of Hadleigh, famous for its castle and country park, Abbeyfield House offers sheltered housing and consists of 14 rooms all on ground level. All of our rooms come with en-suite facilities but we encourage residents to bring their own furniture allowing you to personalise it to your own taste and make it feel like home.
Built in 1983 by the Hadleigh Benfleet Society, the house has always been well maintained to a high standard and our caring team of staff are all dedicated to ensuring that our residents feel happy and supported by creating a warm and homely atmosphere.
You’ll find a beautiful communal lounge and dining room in the house where you can socialise and spend time getting to know other residents. Alternatively, you can while away the time in the attractive well-tended garden, spend time in the summerhouse to read a book, or do a little gardening. We have four communal bathrooms/wet rooms and a laundry room that are also available for you to use.
Abbeyfield House is in a great location; we are a short bus, car or train ride away from the following places of interest:
