Riverside is home for 39 residents. Rooms are attractively decorated, most are en-suite. Some have French doors leading out to the garden or a safe balcony. All have a television and a telephone point. A fridge, safe and courtesy tray can be provided if desired. Each room is tastefully furnished but residents are encouraged to bring small items of furniture if they wish.

There is a newly refurbished dining room and a beautiful conservatory leading out to the peaceful and pretty garden. The sound of water running into the pond completes the idyllic picture on a warm summer’s evening.

Upstairs there is another lounge frequently used for activities and staff training. For private meals with your family or to quietly reflect with a book we have a small visitor’s room.

There is a choice of bathrooms from the conventional type to a shower or wet room or a more specialised bath.
