About the property

Abbeyfield Romsey was opened in 1993 with an extension added in 2007. The house has 9 studio rooms of different sizes all with their own en-suite and lift access to all rooms. The house also has 3 flats which can cater for couples if needed. We have a lovely sunny lounge, a dining room, a seating area at the front of the house and a rear patio and garden. All our rooms overlook green fields and have a sunny aspect to them.

We provide two meals a day consisting of a two course lunch and a light tea in the evening. Residents make their own breakfast at their leisure in the communal kitchens. Residents washing and ironing is done weekly for them.

The house is in a quiet area only 5 minutes’ level walk from the picturesque centre of the market town of Romsey where you can find various coffee shops, department store and independent retailers. There is also a local market in town square twice a week with local produce and handy crafts. There are good transport links with local bus routes and a nearby train station with trains to London, Southampton and Winchester.

We have a visiting mobile hairdresser and chiropodist. We also have a lift and two assisted bathrooms.

The house has a dedicated manager however residents can gain additional support from a Careline provider 24 hours a day. Each resident is provided with a pendant and has a support system in their bedroom and en-suite to contact the Careline. The support systems are also situated in our communal areas.
