Marjorie Baker House is a modern, purpose-built unit of just 15 spacious one-bedroom apartments, centrally located in Colyton. Each apartment boasts its own en-suite bathroom, kitchen area and living room. We provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents can remain as independent as possible – it’s a safe and secure home from home with reassuring support from our caring house staff and volunteers.
Two home-cooked meals are provided daily in our comfortable dining room. The welcoming lounge area opens onto a beautiful well-tended garden. We offer a range of regular social activities.
Our attractive respite room is available for short stays and recuperation.
