The accommodation in the home has been substantially modernised, whilst still retaining the elegance and charm of the high ceilings and cornices. All bedrooms are furnished to a high standard and fitted with wash-hand basins. Some have en-suite WCs and hand-basins, others have bathrooms. Communal bathrooms are located at either end of the house and within easy reach of all Residents. Residents are offered a choice of accommodation with single or shared rooms.

The house has a welcoming lounge, tastefully furnished, and recently redecorated. There is a spacious dining room and an attractive reception hall with original Victorian tiles. The house has full central heating and full compliance with modern fire precautions and alarm systems.

The Gardens
Immediately to the rear of the house is a stone flagged terrace containing a variety of flowers, shrubs and conifers leading to the formal gardens beyond. The gardens form a most impressive feature, bounded by high brick and stone walls offering absolute privacy.

The Nursing Wing
The nursing home was constructed in natural stone and completed in 1992 and officially opened by His Grace the Duke of Buccleuch KT. Each room has en-suite facilities, TV & telephone points and furnished to very high standards.

Residents are allowed, wherever possible, to live their lives as independently as possible. They are encouraged to remain active as long as possible and participate in as many activities as they are able to manage, subject to their own limitations.

We welcome both long and short stay residents, whether privately funded or assisted by Social Services. Any special dietary requirement is catered for.

The Home helps clients to lead their individual lifestyles whenever possible by encouraging existing and new interests and providing varied activities for those interested. Friends and family are welcomed and add to residents' quality of life. There are no fixed visiting times but it is sensible and considerate to residents to try and visit between 11am and 4.30pm.
