About the property

Moretons house is very homely with a well-tended garden and a greenhouse. Residents meet socially every morning for coffee and biscuits. Daily, half an hour before lunch and tea, there is a musical gathering where residents can enjoy the all-time favourites.

The house is situated opposite the bowling green and the British legion, close to the local community centre and the town centre. We have a close relationship with the local churches and a good bus service to Bournemouth and Wimborne plus other local areas of interest.

Facilities include a pleasant combined lounge and dining room with a conservatory overlooking the well-tended landscaped gardens. Set on two floors, all nine rooms are en-suite. There is a lift to the upper floor for less mobile residents. There is also a car park at the front of the house for visitors.

Moretons is managed by Abbeyfield Wessex
