Our location

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque English market town of Kingsbridge, Abbeyfield House stands as a purpose-built house, offering sheltered housing for older people, that first opened its doors in 1997.

Abbeyfield House enjoys a prime location between Plymouth, Dartmoor, and Torquay, nestled in the southern tip of the Devon countryside. Nearby sandy beaches and green rolling countryside provide ideal settings for peaceful walks or gatherings with loved ones. A brief stroll from Kingsbridge town centre leads to amenities such as a public boating pontoon, libraries, pharmacies, cafes, newsagents, an art gallery, and various shops, all surrounding the beautiful waterside Quay area.

Boasting excellent transport links, our home is just a few minutes' walk from Kingsbridge Bus Station, offering routes to Plymouth, Salcombe, Dartmouth, and Totnes, as well as a free weekly bus to the willows at Torquay. There are plenty of opportunities for outings, with numerous beaches easily accessible via public transport from Kingsbridge Quay.

Our rooms

We have 11 single-occupancy rooms. Every room in Abbeyfield House is generously sized, featuring a purpose-built en-suite bathroom, a combined bedroom/lounge area, and a well-equipped kitchenette with a sink, worktop, and cupboards. The carpeted rooms come unfurnished, so you can bring your belongings to create a true sense of home. You’ll also find television and telephone points, along with ample electrical sockets, as well as your own secure front door.

Communal spaces

Our large lounge/dining area provides a comfortable space for relaxation, whether you prefer reading a book or catching up with friends and family, or socialising with other residents. Our elevated outdoor patio area also offers the perfect spot to relax on warm summer days.

Our food

We take pride in serving high-quality, home-cooked lunches and suppers daily in our communal dining room, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for all residents.

Activities and events

At Abbeyfield House, our calendar is packed with activities throughout the year. During Christmastime, our annual Christmas events include a Thurlestone Hotel lunch, carol singing with local schools, and festive outings. Throughout the year, we organise trips for cream tea, fish & chips, visits to landmarks like Buckfast Abbey, and trips to the theatre. We also host coffee mornings, bringing residents together, and birthdays are celebrated with cake and bubbly.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home soon.

Abbeyfield House is managed by Abbeyfield South West Society.
