Show more "In the grounds of The Elms Nursing & Residential Home are 17 self-contained cottages providing the occupants with independence and complete freedom. However, if an emergency occurs help is on the doorstep immediately. Each cottage has an intercom and call bell facility connected to the main home. Occupants may use all the facilities of the home, including the restaurant, activities, mini-bus and gardens. The mini-bus goes twice a week to Tesco and weekly to the village. Gardening and window cleaning is provided as well as a laundry. The cottages are available on a long lease basis.

The cottages provide the best of both worlds - independence for those who wish to be so, with help at hand on site 24 hours a day." Show less
