The Grounds

The gardens have been designed for the use of all abilities. All areas will be paved for the ease of wheel chairs and walking frames and sticks. All flower beds and fish pond will be raised.

Every care will be taken to protect residents from excessive exposure to the elements.

  • The completely enclosed and secure garden extends to a third of an acre with raised flower beds, a large patio, a greenhouse, a vegetable garden and fruit trees.
  • All areas are accessible by wheel chairs or by the physically impaired.
  • Every resident will be given a raised space in the garden to cultivate for themselves, and anyone who likes gardening is more than welcome to help out in the communal gardens or on our allotment located in the country side outside Felixstowe.
  • There is a barbecue for al fresco dining and outdoor heaters on the patio in case it turns chilly.
