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.

The local area 

Marjorie Baker House is situated in the heart of Colyton, a delightful small town, steeped in history, set amidst the rolling hills and valleys of East Devon, and very close to the scenic Axe estuary and Jurassic coastline.

Set in a quiet cul-de-sac location, local amenities are nearby and easily accessed. The town’s shops include general stores and post office, pharmacy, hairdresser, pubs and cafes. Also nearby are the community library, health centre and the Parish Church.

There are many walks locally, which give wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and an opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the area.
Colyton is a thriving community offering many clubs, societies and events to satisfy a wide range of interests.

There are convenient public transport links to the town. Local bus service routes link Colyton to the nearby towns of Axminster, Honiton and Seaton. Community transport is also available and is regularly used by our residents.

Life at the house

activities at marjorie baker house supported housing for older people in colytonThe communal areas of our house enable our residents to organise their own social gatherings, and to share hobbies and interests. These include film nights, craft activities, listening to music, and card and board games. Visits from volunteers to lead activities are welcomed and enjoyed by our residents. A weekly seated exercise session is a popular event.

Marjorie Baker House is keen to play a supportive role in the community. People are invited to join our residents for regular guest lunches and our monthly coffee mornings held on the first Wednesday of each month. Our residents regularly participate in the active life of the Colyton community.

 

Christmas 2017

For the second year running, we opened our doors and hearts on Christmas Day to welcome in neighbours and friends who would otherwise be alone, to join us for a delicious three course festive lunch.

We had over 40 people for the meal, all who found it very enjoyable with some already reserving their places for Christmas 2018!
