About the property

Westbourne House is a bright vibrant house, close to the centre of Bournemouth, the beautiful beach and gardens, and a walk away from the popular village of Westbourne. Local amenities include shops and galleries. Bus routes and travel links are excellent. We are only 2 hours train journey to Waterloo.

The house was built on the site of the previous house in 2009 and now consists of 25 en-suite rooms with a choice of studios and apartments. We have two homely lounges and a spacious dining room. Our outside areas provide sunny and easily accessible well maintained gardens. We also have a lift access to all floors. You are welcome to have family and friends come for lunch and tea and we have coffee mornings every day. The house offers a variety of activities, outings and social occasions with the help of our volunteers and the friends and family of our residents.

The house has a dedicated Operations 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.

Westbourne House is managed by Abbeyfield Wessex
