Welcome to our house

The Abbeyfield house in West Hill was built in the early 19th century as a private house and was adapted as a retirement home by Abbeyfield house in 1979. Today’s it's run as a sheltered home to offer older people supported living but allowing them to remain as independent as they wish.

We provide a peaceful, friendly atmosphere where residents can remain as independent as possible. Weekly social activities are organised plus occasional outings.

Two delicious home cooked meals are provided daily. It's a home from home with support when you need it from our professional and caring house staff and volunteers.

Surrounding the house is a large garden with lawns and seating areas. There are also areas to grow fruit and vegetables with a summer house and greenhouse which residents can use.

The house stands above the historic sea town of Lyme Regis, a short walk from the sea, shops and amenities. 

Abbeyfield House is managed by Abbeyfield Lyme Regis and Dorset Society.
