The Abbeyfield Honiton Society provides high standards of sheltered accommodation and companionship for 10 elderly residents. Our support service enables independence and a happy lifestyle for people of retirement age.

The Abbeyfield Society began in 1956 when Richard Carr-Gomm, a young Coldstream Guard, became concerned by the number of lonely older people he saw in south-east London. Abbeyfield now has over 600 homes throughout the country and some overseas.

For the Honiton society fund raising was started in 1969 and Stanhope House was acquired in 1970 for older people to live independently in a supported environment. That still continues today with the help of our resident housekeeper Gaynor and the staff and volunteers.
